TotalEnergies has won 194 rooftop solar projects, 20% of the total capacity awarded in a call for tenders issued by the French Energy Regulatory Commission (CRE).
The company, along with its joint venture with Amarenco, won 58 megawatts worth of projects in this round, bringing its total awarded projects across all 13 rounds of the CRE 4 “rooftop solar” call for tenders to more than 250 MW.
Throughout the 13 rounds, TotalEnergies and Amarenco were awarded more project capacity than any other company, the next being Technique Solaire, which won 222 MW worth of projects.
“Since 2017, TotalEnergies, together with Amarenco, has won over 700 solar projects on buildings in France. This unique performance in a fast-growing market confirms our position as the leader in photovoltaic roofing,” says Thierry Muller, chief executive of TotalEnergies Renewables France.
“By winning this new tender, we are one step closer to our goal of reaching 4 GW of renewable generation capacity in France by 2025. TotalEnergies is thus confirming its commitment to being a major player in the development of renewables in the country.”
By the end of 2021, TotalEnergies’ gross renewable electricity generation capacity was more than 10 gigawatts. The company plans to reach 35 GW total in renewable sources and storage by 2025, and 100 GW by 2030, focusing on wind and solar energy.
