A key segment in providing innovative solutions,
Akuo Energy’s solar projects are a showcase for the group’s expertise
The first technology to have been developed under the Akuo Energy brand, photovoltaic panels account for a sizeable share of the group’s capacity in operation, construction or financing. The most abundant source of energy in the world, solar power benefits from significant research efforts and has considerable scope for growth thanks to the technological advances now taking place. A key technology in the future energy landscape, solar power is a major focus for Akuo Energy, and a showcase for all the inventiveness and common sense of its teams.
Historically active in island settings, which account for the majority of its solar portfolio, Akuo Energy has created photovoltaic projects that integrate well with their environment, by developing specific areas of expertise such as Agrinergie® and energy storage. This expertise is also reflected in the range of solar technologies mastered by the group, covering ground-based panels or those integrated into buildings or fitted to sun-shades or cyclone-proof greenhouses.

N°1 in photovoltaic generation in both Corsica and Réunion, the group has based its activity on projects in isolated areas, using two major innovations: Agrinergie® and energy storage. The development and deployment of the Agrinergie® concept meets the challenge of land scarcity in island settings, by allowing the combination of energy production and agriculture on the same site. The most advanced form of this concept comes in the construction of photovoltaic, cyclone-proof greenhouses.
In addition, with 29MW of photovoltaic projects coupled with 29MWh of battery storage in operation since 2014, Akuo Energy is the main global player in the field of combined large-scale solar and storage projects. This major innovation has tackled the issue of intermittent supply and opened the path to industrialized storage.
