In short, French companies. Atriohm roof rental, Schneider PV generator, Reden+Kenergy, EDF America

Atriohm offers a new financing formula for solar roofs.

This proposal concerns the roof of community buildings, companies or car parks. It is leased for a long period (25 to 30 years) and then equipped with a solar installation. Atriohm carries out the work, and is remunerated from the sale of the electricity produced, or through the provision of energy efficiency services.

This company was founded by Akuo and the Banque des Territoires.


Editor's note: This rental offer was very successful in the United States when interest rates were high. The scheme declined as interest rates fell, as owners were then better off borrowing on their own to obtain the proceeds from electricity sales.


The zero-emission generator made by Schneider Electric was commissioned by Enedis. It uses locally produced renewable energy coupled with non-polluting batteries. This product is intended to replace diesel-powered generators.



French company Reden Solar has formed an alliance with Dutch developer Kenergy Ventures to develop solar projects in Spain.

Reden had already announced in 2019 its intention to continue acquiring PV projects in Spain, when it had about 100 MW after the buyout from Everwood.

Kenergy has started to develop renewable energy projects for third parties and is currently involved in the assets until they are built. In total, it has developed and connected over 550 MW.



EDF is combining the activities of EnterSolar and EDF Renewables North America into the PowerFlex entity. PowerFlex will provide commercial and industrial (C&I) customers with on-site solar solutions, complementing its battery storage, electric vehicle (EV) charging, microgrid and energy management system offerings. The combination follows the acquisition of the remaining shares of EnterSolar in January
