RE developer, enXco, will change its name to EDF Renewable Energy. The new name comes from its integration with the EDF group, the company says. EDF Renewable Energy specializes in wind, solar, biomass and biogas project design, development, construction, operations, and maintenance. It develops, builds, owns and operates renewable energy projects in the U.S. for its own account as well as for third party ownership.
Ten years ago, EDF Energies Nouvelles, the subsidiary specializing in renewable energy, acquired enXco, initiating growth in the company throughout the United States, Mexico, and Canada. At the time of the acquisition, the EDF group (Electricité de France) owned 50% of EDF Energies Nouvelles. EDF acquired the remaining 50% of EDF Energies Nouvelles in August 2011.
EDF Renewable Energy is maintaining a separate Development group and the Operations and Maintenance (O&M) group – formerly enXco Service Corporation – by changing the name of the O&M group to EDF Renewable Services. The services division will continue to perform all required O&M for wind and solar energy projects.
The closer alignment to the EDF group lets EDF Renewable Energy and EDF Renewable Services capitalize on shared knowledge, financial strength and long-term stability, according to the company.
We will continue to work collaboratively with our customers and clients as a local partner, ensuring mutual respect and accountability to deliver the best projects and service possible. The deeper affiliation with EDF will create a stronger U.S. subsidiary poised to meet future challenges,” says CEO Tristan Grimbert. “The full integration with EDF allows for increased global backing, new financial and technical resources, and the stability to expand our business, while maintaining our entrepreneurial spirit.”
