We define ourselves as an integrated energy company. We intervene in all four stages of an asset’s life-cycle: design and development, financing, building and operating. We are an independent supplier, we own 92% of our plants, and operate them in our own name. With this approach, we guarantee the quality and performance of our assets over time.
First, we assess the technical, economic, societal and environmental feasibility of our projects.
Then we define the project, based on the characteristics of the site and the resources available. This process includes engaging in constructive dialogue with stakeholders, local residents and communities, elected representatives and government agencies.
We finance our projects through a combination of equity contributions and long-term debt, mainly through non-recourse financing, and the creation of a separate company for each project developed.
Our equity increases regularly, thereby providing us with a solid and sustainable financial base and a growing investment capacity.
As project owner, we are closely involved in supervising the construction of our power plants. We ensure that each plant is a high quality and sustainable asset, with a life span of several decades.
We deal with tier-1 contractors and other suppliers and seek to involve local suppliers in the construction work.
As an energy producer, we are particularly attentive to the operating performance of our power plants worldwide.
They are monitored in real time by our team of specialists and their maintenance is performed by our subcontractors under O&M contracts.
Through our Energy Management expertise, we supply customised, integrated renewable energy solutions which leverage our asset portfolio and in depth market knowledge
