Solar

An inexhaustible low-carbon energy source

Every year, solar systems generate more than 20 times the power needed to meet the world’s energy needs. And yet, this technology still represents only 1% of global power generating capacity.

At ENGIE, we aim to do whatever it takes to increase the contribution made by this renewable clean energy source to our own energy mix by acting directly at every link in the value chain, from research through manufacture to installation.

The sun, an unlimited source of energy for humanity, provides competitive energy with high potential. Solar energy could account for as much as 16% of total electricity production by 2050 (compared to 1.8% in 2016 – source: International Energy Agency).

That’s why we have been investing for several years in solar energy, an inexhaustible power source with low CO2 emissions. It doesn’t harm the environment, and sustainably meets the electricity needs of Australian and New Zealand residents.

We’re committed to contributing to a more harmonious world, where progress meets the expectations of individuals, the community and the planet. Solar energy responds perfectly to these challenges, and is one of the pillars of the transition to a sustainable energy future.
