SMART ENERGIES to invest in 29 solar plants built by BELECTRIC

Smart Energies pursues its strategy to operate a large portfolio of mid-size decentralized renewable assets in Europe and announces an investment in 29 new solar PV rooftops located in different regions of France. These solar plants cover agricultural buildings of 650 sqm each, mostly used as barns or storage facilities, for a total installed capacity of 3 MWp and a yearly production of more than 3.3 GWh. These projects have been developed and built by Belectric (France), using best available technologies for modules and inverters. They were commissioned in 2013 and 2014. The integration of these 29 new plants will enable Smart Energies to leverage its strong experience of multi-sites operation and confirm its role of growing player in the consolidation of the solar rooftops market in France.


SMART ENERGIES is a family-held group having invested for many years in energy technologies and environment. The group is now focusing its strategy on the development of a large portfolio of mid-size renewable assets in Europe (more than 60 sites in hydro, solar and biogas as of March 2015), on the hydrogen generation through its subsidiary Areva H2Gen as well as on new projects in energy efficiency.
