April 13 (Renewables Now) - EDF Energies Nouvelles, the renewables arm of French electric utility EDF SA (EPA:EDF), has made the decision to unify its international subsidiaries under a single brand, it announced on Thursday.
Over 20 international units, including North America-focused EDF Renewable Energy, EDF Renewable Services, EDF EN Canada, EDF EN Mexico and groSolar, will operate from now on under the brand EDF Renewables. The change became effective on Thursday, according to the announcement.
The portfolio of EDF Renewables North America includes 10 GW of developed projects and 10 GW under service contracts. The business will be organised around three primary lines: grid-scale power, distributed solutions and asset optimisation.
Within grid-scale power, the company will focus on originating, developing, constructing and financing onshore and offshore wind, solar photovoltaic and energy storage projects. The distributed solutions line, in turn, will concentrate on solar plus storage, electric vehicle (EV) charging stations and energy management systems, while asset optimisation combines the fields of operations & maintenance (O&M) and asset management.
Jamie Resor, CEO Distributed Solutions, commented that this business line will be energising distributed solar projects in multiple states from California to Massachusetts in the coming months.
