Total, through Total Quadran, its renewable energy subsidiary in France, was awarded 50 megawatts of solar projects in the ninth round of the CRE 4 French Energy Regulatory Commission tender. Total thus confirmed its position as number 1 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.
As part of its ambition to get to net zero by 2050, Total is building a portfolio of activities in renewables and electricity that should account for up to 40 % of its sales by 2050. At the end of 2020, Total's gross power generation capacity worldwide was around 12 GW, including 7 GW of renewable energy. Total will continue to expand this business to reach 100 GW of gross production capacity from renewable sources by 2030 with the objective of being among the world's top 5 in renewable energies.
