Total, through Total Quadran, a wholly-owned affiliate dedicated to developing and producing renewable energy in France, was awarded 67 megawatt-peak (MWp) of solar projects representing 20% of the volumes awarded in the eighth period of the CRE (French Energy Regulatory Commission) call for tenders. Total is thus consolidating its position as France’s second-largest solar developer with 606 MW of projects in all the sections of the calls for tenders.
Most of the awarded sites will be developed on repurposed sites such as quarries and former industrial sites. Three of these projects are part of the solarization program for Total Group sites.
Total Quadran is proud to be among the leaders in renewable energies in France and to continue to perform in the calls for tenders of the French Energy Regulatory Commission. The results of the call for tenders are a good illustration of our ability to put together solid and competitive proposals in a competitive environment said Thierry Muller, General Manager of Total Quadran.
Total, renewables and electricity
As part of its ambition to get to net zero by 2050, Total is building a portfolio of activities in renewables and electricity that could account for up to 40% of its sales by 2050. By the end of 2020, Total’s gross power generation capacity worldwide will be around 12 gigawatts, including more than 7 gigawatts of renewable energy. With the objective of reaching 35 GW of production capacity from renewable sources by 2025, Total will continue to expand its business to become one of the world leaders in renewable energies.
