The team from the US branch of Photosol will be integrated into Engie North America

Dave Carroll, chief renewables officer at ENGIE North America, said: “The projects represent excellent greenfield opportunities for both solar and storage to help accelerate our journey towards net-zero. The team at Photosol will bring great experience, insight and further agility to our business in North America and we are delighted to have the opportunity to come together.”

Engie North America currently operates 4GW of renewable energy across North America with a double digit growth for this year, according to the company.

In December 2021, fuel distribution company Rubis entered the solar PV market by acquiring an 80% stake in French solar developer Photosol.

This special webinar will look at one of the most important changes impacting PV manufacturing today; how to establish and sustain new facilities around the world. For more than two decades, policy-makers have grappled with the challenges of nurturing domestic manufacturing sectors. Many countries have tried to create domestic sectors: Japan, Taiwan, South Korea, India, Europe and the U.S. But success stories have been rare. Mistakes seem to be repeated. And all the while, Chinese dominance of the industry has only increased. However, in the past 2-3 years, new drivers have emerged that suggest the dream of a global PV manufacturing ecosystem could be a reality. Join us as we shed light on this.
