Albioma, Our nature is full of energy

Our activities
Solar
Power

In 2006, we entered the solar power generating market in synergy with our bagasse/coal cogeneration operations. Our 70 MW of solar power facilities are located in areas of the world with exceptional levels of sunlight, making Albioma a leading player in meeting the photovoltaic energy needs of the French overseas departments.

Our solar power asset base is split equally between ground level solar farms and rooftop installations. 80% of these facilities are located in French overseas departments (32 MW in the French West Indies and French Guiana, and 26 MW in the Indian Ocean region). Secure long-term contracts and tariffs on average 30% higher than those paid in mainland France make this solar business sector extremely profitable, at the same time as generating a constant flow of revenue.

We already have a significant competitive advantage in the solar power markets of the French overseas departments.
But our challenge for the future is to consolidate our expertise in energy storage, which is a vital step towards increasing the number of hours per day during which photovoltaic energy is available.
