With this transaction and the acquisition of a biogas producer in the country, TotalEnergies gained a foothold in the renewables market in the Eastern European country.

As of the end of 2022, the company had a portfolio of 17GW of renewable electricity generation installed globally and expects to more than double it by 2025 to reach 35GW of renewable sources and energy storage, with a target of 100GW of installed renewable capacity by 2030.

“These agreements illustrate TotalEnergies’ commitment to developing its renewable activities in Poland, and in Europe as a whole, to support the European Green Deal,” said Stéphane Michel, president of gas, renewables & power at TotalEnergies.

Outside of Europe, the French major secured 260MW of solar PV power purchase agreements with industrial gas company Air Liquide in South Africa last month.

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.
