TotalEnergies reaches 1 GW of solar power contracts for self-consumption by its B2B customers worldwide
TotalEnergies has reached a new milestone with the signature of 1 GW of green Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) for self-consumption on the sites of its B2B customers. This performance is the result of a strong development strategy based on a multi-energy approach to support its B2B customers in their energy transition through the solarization of their sites.
TotalEnergies offers attractive energy solutions adapted to all fields of activity, both in the private sector - particularly in the Mining, Cement, Retail and Agri-food market segments - and in the public sector. Ensuring a high level of service, its presence in 30 countries allows the Company to be close to its customers in the Asia-Pacific region, China, the Middle East, Africa, Europe and the United States.
TotalEnergies sells to its B2B customers clean energy produced directly on their sites through long-term Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs). To this end, the Company develops, finances, builds, and operates solar panels installed on rooftops, carports, or vacant industrial land.
These solar solutions enable companies to benefit from significant savings on their bills, while greatly reducing their carbon footprint.
"We are proud to have reached 1 GW of signed solar capacity with our B2B customers today. The deployment of this capacity to over 500 industrial and commercial sites will be completed by the end of 2023.
This good result shows the trust that has been established between our customers and TotalEnergies' experts. The professionalism of our teams, located in different regions of the world, ensures a quality of listening and service recognized by our customers. Our organization enables us to meet the requirements of global, regional, and local key accounts with high-quality turnkey solutions.
In a context of unstable and rising energy prices, we provide not only decarbonized energy but also visibility on energy prices as well as technical support throughout the duration of the PPA.” said Matthieu Langeron, VP Solar Distributed Generation at TotalEnergies.
