About Akuo

The Group has more than 80 renewable energy production plants in operation and under construction around the world, and is currently experiencing an acceleration in its growth due in particular to the geopolitical context and the global awareness of climate change. 

An integrated player for 15 years, Akuo has internalized all the businesses of its value chain since its origin. Established in more than 20 countries, Akuo has multiple expertise in the production of renewable energies, storage and sustainable agriculture to meet the electrical and agricultural needs of all territories.

Capital structure

Since it was founded, the Group is owned by its founding directors.  

In early 2022, ICG Infra, the infrastructure fund of ICG* (Intermediate Capital Group), came to support Eric Scotto and Patrice Lucas in pursuing this development strategy by providing additional financial resources to speed up the Group’s development.  

As a result, the Group is now 96% owned by a holding company composed of the two founders and ICG Infra, with the employee investment fund (FCPE) and performance share plan representing the remaining 4% of capital. 

Pursuing its diversification strategy, Akuo relies on a business model made of long-term green electricity sales contracts to both public and private enterprises.
