RES has been active on the French market since 1999 and resulted from a joint-venture between Eole Technologie, a French wind farm developer active in the field since 1995 and RES
RES entered the French market in 1999 as a joint venture with Eole Technologie, a wind farm developer active since 1995. We were originally known as EOLE-RES and are now one of the leading renewable energy companies on the French market.
RES is behind 627 MW (megawatts) of renewable energy installed or currently under construction in France. These utility-scale projects produce 1.6 terawatt hours annually, providing enough electricity for 355,000 homes and preventing 136,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions every year.
We have more than 2,500 MW of projects under development, at different stages. We employ 170 people in Avignon (our headquarters), in our development offices in Paris, Lyon and Bordeaux and in our operations units in Dijon and Béziers.
Tonnes of CO2
Our in-house expertise and skills combined with over 15 years’ experience means we can provide high-quality services and projects for onshore and offshore wind, as well as solar photovoltaic (PV) energy. We have built 31 onshore wind farms, and are currently developing a 500 MW offshore wind farm off the coast of Brittany. We opened our first solar PV power plant in 2009, and a second one in early 2016.
Our in-depth knowledge of France’s grid, and our regulatory expertise, allow us to deliver quality projects on time, in complete safety.

Wherever we work, we talk to local people about what our projects mean to them, and how they will bring tangible benefits to their communities. We do this through public meetings, information brochures, site visits, and direct contact with residents, charities, local associations and schools. And, whenever possible, we work with local businesses and suppliers on our projects.
We also support community charity initiatives with funds from wind farm revenues.
