Activity

Akuo Energy is France’s leading independent producer of renewable energy, and at the end of 2014 we had 527 MW of capacity in operation and under construction. The Group was founded in 2007 and is 80%-owned by its co-founders.

Our revenue comes from the power generation facilities that we develop in-house and then operate. We are an integrated player covering the entire value chain, developing and financing projects, building, operating and managing the assets.

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

Moreover, Akuo Energy is now the world leader in the combination of solar power with storage solutions, and has developed expertise that puts it in an ideal position to play a leading role in the on-going energy revolution made possible by the emergence of competitive electricity storage solutions.

We are diversifying our business in two ways. In geographical terms, we are expanding globally and currently have subsidiaries in eight different countries – France, the United States, Uruguay, Croatia, Poland, Dubai, Indonesia and Turkey – that each serve 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.

In 2014, Akuo Energy’s total billings came to €112 million from sales of green electricity and thermal energy. We had a workforce of 177 people at the end of the year. Our goal is to increase our worldwide installed capacity to over 3,000 MW within five years.
