Founded in 2008, Neoen is the leading French independent producer of renewable energy today. Present in 15 countries and on 4 continents, the group – led since its inception by Xavier Barbaro – focuses its activities on solar energy, wind energy and electricity storage.
Neoen was founded on the belief in a future decrease in the production costs of solar energy and the development of a competitive energy from renewable sources. Although its beginnings in France were difficult, its progressive internationalization is a positive sign.
At the end of 2021, Neoen had 5 GW of renewable energy capacity, in operation and under construction, which breaks down approximately as follows:
- solar: 2.9 GW
- wind: 1.6 GW
- storage (batteries): 0.5 GW
By geographical breakdown:
- Australia: 2.2 GW
- France: 1.25 GW
- South Africa: 0.85 MW
- Europe excluding France: 0.5 MW
- rest of the world: 0.2 MW
ㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤNeoen is proud to have built and managed the largest solar power plant in France in Cestas, the largest batteries in the world (in partnership with Tesla) in Australia, and one of the most competitive solar power plants in the world in Mexico.
And by the end of 2025 Neoen will double its capacity in operation and under construction, with an announced target of 10 GW by that date.
