Total continues to actively contribute to the growth of solar and wind power in France, with its affiliate Total Quadran winning 32 MW of new rooftop solar and wind power projects during the recent call for tenders issued by the French Energy Regulatory Commission (CRE).

Through Energie Développement, its 50-50 joint venture with solar project developer Amarenco France, Total Quadran is among the leaders of the eighth round of the CRE 4 call for tenders, winning 17 MW, or 14 percent of the capacity awarded.

In total, with more than 166 MW won across all rounds of the CRE 4 call for tenders issued in 2017, Energie Développement comes out on top in the rooftop solar installation industry in France.

“We are very pleased to be the leading supplier in the rooftop solar installation industry in France. In addition to our activities in the areas of utility-scale solar plants and solar carports, this success reinforces Total Quadran’s position as the most active solar industry operator in France, across all segments,” said Thierry Muller, CEO of Total Quadran.

Recently, we reported that Total Solar International, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Total Group, dedicated to utility-scale solar plants, has announced the start of the construction of the company’s Miyagi Osato Solar Park, a large-scale solar plant of 52 megawatt-peak (MWp) located in Osato, Miyagi prefecture, Japan.

The project, which has achieved financial close, is expected to start up in 2021 and will provide clean and reliable electricity to Japanese households.

“The Miyagi Osato Solar Park is Total’s third and biggest solar plant in Japan, which will allow us to reach a cumulated capacity of over 100 MWp in the country. This project is in line with Total’s commitment to developing renewable production capacities worldwide and in particular in the Japanese market, where we actively pursue our development”, said Julien Pouget, senior vice-president of Renewables at Total.
