Enertis in France – Entering one of the most promising European renewable markets in the coming years
  • France is widely thought one of the most promising European renewable markets, since its renewable energy legal framework was modified in 2015.
  • Enertis is opening a new office in Paris to be part of this new energy transformation in the French renewables market.

Through the promulgation of the new ‘Energy Transition for Green Growth Act’ (Energy Transition Act) in 2015, France fully committed to an energy transformation, aiming to increase the share of renewable energy in its gross final energy consumption to 32 percent by 2030.

To achieve this goal, France’s multiannual program of energy (PPE) sets objectives for the further development of renewable energy, specifying concrete target capacities for 2018, alongside high and low scenarios for installed capacity in 2023. For solar photovoltaics, a total of about 10 GW installed capacity should be reached by 2018, and 18-20 GW by 2023. By contrast, the onshore wind target is to reach 15 GW by 2018 and 22-26 GW by 2023.

Public tender programs have been introduced to boost these deployment purposes.

This new policy framework in France enables an attractive and competitive horizon for renewables. Enertis, a global and independent full range consulting and engineering firm for renewable energy, specialized in solar and wind, that provides expertise and independent advice along every stage of the projects is working in the expansion of its business, and has just opened a new office in Paris, France. From the new office, Enertis seeks to be closer to its French clients, and support them in their successful participation in the public tenders in the next years, amongst others.

The new Paris office will be available to render all of Enertis’ core services in consultancy, testing and engineering. In addition to the traditional focus on photovoltaic projects, the company also plans to enter the French wind sector.
