List of 3 Renewable Energy Developers in France

French developers are in the majority characterized by their years of experience and use of the latest technologies. Active in multiple fields of renewable energy, the French developer industry drives the energy transition forward by shaping the global development and thereby the improvement of renewable energy generation. Based on this standing, three of the top French developers will be introduced.

1. EDF Renewables (Paris)

EDF Renewables is a French developer who shares the goal of the energy transition. Besides using the newest technologies, EDF Renewables realizing numerous renewable energy projects, especially in the field of wind energy and energy storage. In order to maximize the use of natural resources in the context of energy generation, the Paris based developer evolved renewable wind energy projects with a total capacity of 500 MW. Furthermore, the developer aims to reach a capacity of 10 GW energy storage within the next 15 years.

Update 2024: EDF is planning to develop a wind farm with a capacity of 30MW in County Roscommon, Ireland. The project is planned to be operational by 2028.

2. Voltalia (Paris)

The French developer Voltalia exhibits a portfolio with realized renewable energy projects across 20 countries. The Paris based developer realized various kinds of renewable energy such as solar farms, wind parks, hydro power and biomass projects.

As a signatory to the Paris Climate Agreement, France has committed itself to the fight against climate change. One of the most relevant starting points here is the transformation of the electricity market. The development and promotion of renewable energies such as solar energy, wind energy, hydropower, biomass or geothermal energy are essential in order to meet the – continuously increasing – demand for electricity in the future without further burdening the environment. Renewable energy project developers are therefore an incredibly important component for the electricity market of the future.
