EDF Renewables, a subsidiary of EDF Energies Nouvelles was the joint top performing wind power developer in the US last year.
The company took top market share for the development of new wind energy capacity additions in 2015, having developed 1,055.4 MW of installed capacity across five states giving them a 12 per cent market share.
Tristan Grimbert, CEO and President of EDF Renewable Energy said, “EDF Group, as part of its ambition to be the worldwide champion for low-carbon growth in the electricity sector, expects to double the group’s installed capacity from renewable energy sources by 2030. EDF EN, the entity charged with renewable development globally, will largely contribute to this goal through EDF RE’s North America market position.”
The EDF RE capacity additions include projects in some of the top states for wind power production according to American Wind Energy Association’s fourth quarter 2015 report, (Kansas, Texas and Iowa) and comprised eight projects, ranging from 20 MW to 250 MW in capacity.
EDF RE is also leading the way in the commercial and industrial (C&I) space with five wind deals executed tallying 543 MW with Fortune 500 companies, making the company number one in terms of customer relationships serving the corporate purchaser market.
