Ten years ago, EDF Energies Nouvelles, the EDF subsidiary specializing in renewable energy, acquired enXco, initiating tremendous growth in the company throughout the United States, Mexico and Canada. At the time of the acquisition, the EDF group (Electricite de France) owned 50% of EDF Energies Nouvelles. EDF acquired the remaining 50% of EDF Energies Nouvelles in August 2011, and enXco is now fully integrated within the Group under a new name, EDF Renewable Energy.
EDF Renewable Energy is maintaining the delineation between the Development group and the Operations and Maintenance (O&M) group - formerly enXco Service Corporation - by changing the name of the O&M group to EDF Renewable Services.
The closer alignment to the EDF group allows EDF Renewable Energy and EDF Renewable Services to capitalize on shared knowledge, financial strength and long-term stability.
As EDF Renewable Energy we remain dedicated in our efforts to create the most efficient renewable energy projects possible, for our own portfolio and for third parties. We have more than 25 years of expertise in the renewable industry, and a portfolio of over 4.5 gigawatts of developed projects and 1.6 gigawatts of installed capacity. We specialize in wind and solar photovoltaic with presence in other segments of the renewable energy market: biogas, biomass, hydro, marine energy, and storage solutions.
Our O&M group, EDF Renewable Services, is the leading provider of third-party operations and maintenance services in North America with over 6 gigawatts of power under contract. EDF Renewable Services understands renewable energy facilities represent a substantial investment and takes an owner-operator approach to ensure maximum returns on the asset, full project value, and ongoing profitability for new and existing facilities. As part of a global organization with utility-scale wind and solar plants, the company brings depth of experience to every project.
From site selection to asset management, we provide extensive services along the entire value chain.
