Our strategy

The Akuo Energy Group aims to become a global producer of electricity and energy exclusively generated from renewable resources. Akuo Energy structures its growth according to a double strategy of diversification: a strategy of geographic diversification - currently, the group has a foothold in more than 15 geographic areas and is bound to become increasingly diversified over time; a strategy of technological diversification. Akuo Energy today uses several types of energy production technologies, including wind, solar and water energy, biogas, biomass and marine power.

Metropolitan France

France is the Group’s country of origin, and is where Akuo is currently developing 300 MW of energy generation plants, comprising 200 MW of wind energy and 100 MW of solar energy. A significant number of biogas and biomass projects are also being developed in the country.

Corsica

The Group has many activities in this region. It has already built a solar photovoltaic plant of 7.9 MW in Rapale and will develop 20 additional MWs of energy generation capacity over the next 2 years.

Reunion Island

Akuo Energy has put its first ground-mounted solar photovoltaic plants into service in this overseas territory, based upon Akuo’s own Agrinergie concept. The Group plans to build 50 additional MWs of energy generation capacity on the island (including solar, biogas and biomass energy plants) over the next 2 years.

West Indies

The first Agrinergie ground-mounted solar energy project was built and commissioned in 2009 in Marie Galante. Other projects are currently being developed on the islands of Guadeloupe and Martinique.

United States

The United States accounts for 1/3 of Akuo Energy Group’s business. Within the US, Akuo Energy is focused primarily on wind energy projects (1100 MW of projects currently in development). The first projects will start construction in early 2011, and Akuo plans to build at least 1100 MW of wind energy projects between the years 2011 and 2014. Akuo Energy is also developing 100 MW of solar energy projects in the US, which are also planned to start construction in 2011.

Turkey

Akuo has been developing projects in Turkey since 2005 and owns one of the most significant wind energy portfolios in the country. The two first operating licenses for wind farms have been secured, and construction works for the first 200 MW of generation capacity will commence in 2010. The aggregate project portfolio of Akuo Energy in Turkey amounts to 500 MW of generation capacity.

Croatia

Akuo’s most recent international expansion has been into the country of Croatia. The first projects set up in 2010 will focus on wind energy, with a total goal of 150 MW in the country over the next 3 years.

Poland

Akuo has secured construction permits for 200 MW of wind-farms. Construction on the first phase of these wind-farms (44 MW) will commence in 2010, with the remaining projects going into construction in 2011 and 2012.

Uruguay

Akuo has been developing wind projects in South America since 2006. Today we have a 300 MW wind portfolio, part of which are planned to be in construction in late 2012 / early 2013. In addition, Akuo Energy is looking to diversify its portfolio seeking new opportunities in other geographies and technologies.
