Total, through Total Quadran, its renewable energy subsidiary in France, was awarded 50 megawatts (MW) of solar projects in the ninth round of the CRE 4 (French Energy Regulatory Commission) tender.

Total confirms its frontrunning position in solar development in France with close to 400 MW, the largest volume awarded over the last 18 months.

Most of the awarded sites will be developed on repurposed sites and will allow to redesign former industrial sites.

Total Quadran will ensure the construction, operation and commissioning of these projects by 2022.

“Total once again confirms its commitment to developing renewable energies in France. We are proud, through our participation in the French Energy Regulatory Commission’s calls for tenders, to participate in the transformation of the French energy landscape,” says Julien Pouget, Senior Vice President Renewables of Total.
