MAIA GROUP has become one of the ten top actors in French wind power following the creation of its MAIA EOLIS subsidiary in 2006. In France, this company operates 21 wind farms in north and north-east France. With €300m of investments to date, the company has an installed power capacity of 246 MW and a pipeline of over 250 MW in construction or approved permits. The company masters the whole value chain, from identifying sites and obtaining administrative permits to the production of energy. In photovoltaic and hydro-electric technologies, the company also operates the plants.
These factors have brought the group ENGIE, a minority shareholder since 2006 of the subsidiary MAIA EOLIS, to acquire from MAIA GROUP all its activities and stakes in the renewable energy sector.
This transaction allows the ENGIE group to consolidate its strategy in the renewable energy sector with 21,5 GW of constructed power generating capacity, representing 18% of its total energy production.
