Total's solar strategy

Environmental innovation is part of the overall strategy of the Pittsburgh Climate Action Plan 3.0. It unites residential buildings, offices and manufacturing facilities. The project is at an early implementation stage.
PARIS, FRANCE
In addition to the coal, gas and oil companies, energy concern Total is developing power plants based on renewable energy, including solar energy. Solar energy development as one of the Paris Climate Agreement principles is part of the Total long-term strategy. The corporation is actively promoting the solar energy production growth around the world, designing and operating industrial-scale power plants and supplying enterprises and commercial customers with solar energy generated at their own facilities.

In its new 2020 strategy, the company is addressing climate change and is building a portfolio of low-carbon projects that, according to Total's estimates, could account for up to 20% of all sales by 2040.
TOTAL'S RENEWABLE ENERGY CAPACITY
MAKES 5 GW AS OF MID-2020
SOLAR FARMS
The company entered the solar power plant (solar farm) development and operation market in 2011 when it acquired a majority stake in SunPower, a leading manufacturer of high-efficiency photovoltaic cells.

Just three years later, one of Total's subsidiaries built the world's largest photovoltaic power plant in the Mojave Desert, north of Los Angeles (USA), with a capacity of 700 MW.

In 2018, a dedicated Total Solar division was created, which is now operating solar farms in South Africa, Japan and Chile.

Another core business unit, Total Eren, is responsible for the use of solar power plants in developing countries with growing energy needs.
TOTAL'S RENEWABLE ENERGY PORTFOLIO WILL BE EXPANDED TO 25 GW BY 2025. THE MAIN SHARE WILL BE TAKEN BY SOLAR POWER PLANTS
NANAO, JAPAN
The Total Solar Farm on the Noto Peninsula was the first one in Japan. The facility was built in extreme conditions (strong winds and complex logistics) and is now providing energy to almost 8,900 Japanese households.
FOR INFORMATION
The energy development division Total Énergie Développement was created in 1972 and three years later began to develop and test the first solar panels, farms and water heaters, as well as hydraulic pumps.

By 2005, Tenesol (Total Énergie Solaire) was supplying solar electricity to more than 100,000 homes in Asia, Africa and Latin America. Since 2018, the company has been producing and selling solar energy to industrial and commercial customers.
DISTRIBUTED SOLAR ENERGY
Total develops large solar installations and decentralized roof systems for homes, factories, offices, and solar carports. This helps to generate solar power as close as possible to consumers' residence. The company not only installs such systems for its customers, but also applies them at its own sites.
MORE THAN 5,000 SERVICE STATIONS AND 100 INDUSTRIAL SITES WILL BE EQUIPPED WITH SOLAR PANELS IN THE NEXT FIVE YEARS

The La Mède biorefinery is part of a larger plan for the transformation of enterprises with high growth potential, including in the field of solar energy. Thanks to the Total modernization, the former refinery has become a multifunctional platform to meet the new energy agenda.
