Renewable energy


Renewable energies are becoming an increasingly important part of the French and global energy landscape, and politicians and major groups are aware of the importance of developing these energies to address climate change and move towards decentralized energy independence.
  • However, financing is not always secure and players in the renewable energy sector face several challenges

  • Perfect understanding of regulations and incentive mechanisms
  • Development of international renewable energy projects

Cleantech financing


  • Some companies are forced to limit or reduce their greenhouse gas emissions or to use green electricity in accordance with international or regional regulations;
  • Others wish to contribute to the protection of the environment and to convey an eco-responsible image to their customers, who are increasingly concerned and attentive to the respect of nature;
  • In both cases, green products (carbon credits, guarantees of origin, etc.) are available on the market to compensate for greenhouse gas emissions or to buy green electricity.
