Activity

With 560 MW of capacity in operation or under construction at the end of 2015, and consolidated revenue of €149 million, coming solely from the sale of green energy, Akuo Energy is France’s leading independent renewable energy producer. The group was founded in 2007 and is 80%-owned by its founders.

It develops its own assets which it operates from the outset, consolidating the revenue generated. Akuo Energy is an integrated player covering the entire value chain, developing and financing projects, construction and operation of our assets.

 

 

Akuo Energy is committed to developing exemplary projects, which go beyond the mere production of electricity to create additional social benefits for the populations of the places where they are built.

In addition to its expertise in producing green electricity, Akuo Energy draws on other specific areas of proprietary knowledge, most notably Agrinergie® and the combination of power plants with storage solutions.

We are diversifying our business in two ways. In geographical terms, we are expanding globally and currently have implantations in ten countries – France, the United States, Uruguay, Croatia, Poland, Dubai, Indonesia, Turkey, Morocco and Australia – each of which serves as a base for regional development.

We are also diversifying in technological terms, developing projects to generate power using the full spectrum of existing renewable energy sources: wind, solar and biomass as well as hydro power from rivers, seas and oceans.

At end-2015, Akuo Energy had 235 employees, of whom nearly one-third were based abroad. Our ambition is to operate 3,500 MW in 2022.
