Energiequelle and Aedes Energies establish joint venture in France
- The goal is to develop more than 100 MWp of photovoltaic capacity.
Kallinchen, Germany / Floirac, France (renewablepress) - Energiequelle GmbH from Germany and Aedes Energies SAS from France have formed a joint venture. The holding company Aedes-Energiequelle, based in France, will carry several PV project companies with a capacity of over 100 MWp. The initial portfolio consists of various greenfield sites in the départments of Dordogne, Lot-et-Garonne, Nièvre, Gers and Haute-Marne; it will gradually be completed with further projects. Depending on the suitability of individual sites, the electricity produced will be marketed either via feed-in tariff or direct purchase agreements (PPA). First commissionings are planned starting 2025pp.
Within the framework of this cooperation, Aedes Energies is responsible for project development until official permits are granted. Meanwhile, P&T Technologie, Energiequelle's French subsidiary, is in charge of technical development aspects, construction and subsequent plant management. Energiequelle, in turn, will manage the financing and sale of the projects from Germany once completed. For this, the company can draw on a large network of international investors.
Thomas Guirous, President and CEO of Aedes Energies, expressed his satisfaction regarding constructive exchanges with Energiequelle: "This additional partnership fully contributes to our strategy of growth and territorial expansion in France. The ability of our teams to generate and develop new RE projects is recognized by all our partners."
