ENGIE will retain an ownership interest in the PV portfolio, and will construct, manage, and operate the assets.

The pipeline of projects feature behind-the-meter installations that will provide power to commercial and municipal customers, along with small-scale front-of-the-meter projects with rural electric cooperatives under previously signed long-term PPAs. 

Goldman Sach’s investment will be deployed over a period of twelve months, while some projects will begin providing power to its customers through these PPAs immediately.

Daniela Shapiro, head of finance for distributed solar at ENGIE North America, said: “We are delighted to have finalized this structure with Goldman Sachs’ Alternative Energy Investing Group to bring increasing amounts of renewable, reliable, and cost-effective energy to business and communities across the United States.

“Our collaboration brings together two leading players in the energy and financing space to really help accelerate access to renewable energy and battery storage at the distributed scale. By working with such a financing partner, we were able to package and simplify the process which brings benefits to everyone involved.”

At the time of writing, Europe had had its most successful year in terms of Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) with a record 7.8GW of renewable energy contracts signed. As we gather in May 2024 for the third edition of the Renewable Energy Revenues Summit, the energy landscape continues to evolve rapidly, influenced by the beating drum of climate change, volatility around power prices and the need to decarbonise power procurement as well as generation.
