Albioma is the leading solar energy producer in Overseas France, and since 2006 has been deploying innovative solar projects that support the energy transition and enhance regional energy independence. The Group is also rolling out this activity in metropolitan France, in particular following the acquisition of Eneco France in late 2018.
Installed power for all our solar plants combined
Advanced storage technology
As solar energy is inherently intermittent, Albioma uses battery-based storage technology at some solar power plants.
During the day, this innovative system accumulates energy, enabling it to be subsequently reinjected to the network during night-time peak consumption periods.
Albioma solar power plants are located in areas free from conflicts of use, either on building rooftops or on land unsuitable for other activities.
Particular attention is also paid to recycling solar panels, which are collected by PV Cycle, a government-approved eco-organisation, and reprocessed at a plant in the Bouches-du-Rhône department.
The Group conducts its solar energy activities in accordance with strict environmental, occupational health & safety and quality management standards, and has obtained the benchmark ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 50001 triple certification.
Albioma’s expertise rewarded
The Group won contracts for projects representing a capacity of 40 MWp across all regions.
These included government tenders for an aggregate capacity of 24.6 MWp. This capacity is distributed across 44 projects (25 with storage and 19 without storage) located in Reunion Island, Mayotte, French Guiana, Martinique and Guadeloupe.
In Metropolitan France, the Group also won orders for 25 projects with an aggregate capacity of 12.2 MWp (in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, Provence-Alpes-Côte-d’Azur and Occitanie regions).
