Nîmes (renewablepress) - VSB Énergies nouvelles has been selected as official national supplier for photovoltaic solutions for 1,590 Système U stores - a French retailers’ cooperative.

Having set itself ambitious goals in the reduction of the business’s carbon emissions, the supermarket cooperative Système U launched an official solar tender at the beginning of 2019 to select three photovoltaic suppliers that are able to support its ambitions.

VSB is one of the selected suppliers out of twelve that took part in the tender. VSB Énergies nouvelles with its photovoltaic expertise along the entire value chain will support the independent store managers of Système U during the whole process: from the development and construction to the operation and maintenance of solar power plants. With 1,590 stores, the potential for installing photovoltaic systems on rooftops as well as car park canopies offers a great opportunity for VSB Énergies nouvelles in France.

“By developing solar projects for Système U, VSB fulfils one of its core missions: produce renewable energy locally and empower energy users through on-site use of the solar energy. This success confirms our expertise and the quality level of our services,” says Francois Trabucco, Managing Director of VSB Énergies nouvelles.

France is one of the VSB Group’s key markets and has a great growth potential for renewable energies. The large-scale expansion of wind and sun is going to be decisive in the government’s goal to reach 40% green energy generation by 2030. Through its selection as an official photovoltaic supplier of Système U, VSB Énergies nouvelles thus asserts its level of expertise in the provision of services for third parties and in the implementation of self-consumption projects, two strong axes of the strategy on the French market.
