As previously announced, Hanwha Solutions has signed an exclusivity and put option agreement (POA) to take over the French business of UK-based renewables developer RES Group in a drive to expand geographically in France and to enter the wind power market.

Subject to signing a definitive agreement, Hanwha Solutions hopes to close the acquisition of RES France in October 2021.

Acquiring the French company will bring in 2.3 GW of wind, 2.4 GW of solar PV and about 0.3 GW of energy storage assets to Hanwha’s own pipeline.
