EDF EN, which specializes in renewable energies, is a member of French EDF group and, with a total installed capacity of 13 GW, a global market leader in electricity generation from renewable energies.
EDF EN strengthens its position in Germany with the acquisition of the ALTUS and BinnenWind portfolio, taking a further step towards achieving its growth target of more than doubling the installed capacity worldwide by 2030.
