Albioma has been the leading producer of photovoltaic energy in Overseas France since 2006; the Group is rolling out this business in the Indian Ocean, and specifically Mayotte, a territory not connected to continental electricity networks.
In Mayotte, Albioma operates a photovoltaic fleet with an installed capacity of 6.6 MW.
All power plants are sited in locations free from conflicts of use, including the one above Mamoudzou market, which features 725 KW of solar panels, making it the Group’s most powerful rooftop plant. In keeping with the objectives defined in France’s multi-year energy plan, Albioma is contributing to the development of renewable energy in Mayotte, while also consolidating the Group’s status as a major stakeholder in the energy transition.
At the end of 2019, Albioma won a 7.4 MW battery power storage project with a capacity of 14.9 MWh during the first call for projects organised by the French energy regulatory commission (Commission de Régulation de l’Énergie – CRE), relating to storage facilities in Mayotte.
In 2021, Mamoudzou municipal council awarded Albioma a tender to build multiple rooftop photovoltaic installations (with a combined capacity of 880 kWp) at seven schools, two youth centres and two administrative buildings.
