SAN DIEGO and HOUSTON, Texas (Nov. 14, 2018):  EDF Renewables North America and Shell Energy North America (US), L.P. (SENA) announce the signing of a 15-year Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) for the energy and renewable attributes related to a 100 megawatt (MWac) / 132 MWp tranche of the Palen Solar project known as Maverick 4 Solar Project. The Project expects to deliver clean electricity by the end of 2020.

Palen Solar is located in Riverside County, California on 3,140 acres of federal lands within a Solar Energy Zone (SEZ) and Development Focus Area, managed by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM).  The BLM recently completed the federal permitting process, issuing the project a Record of Decision (ROD), which sets in motion the path forward for project construction.

“EDF Renewables is pleased to have completed the federal permitting process on Palen Solar.  This 500 MW project uniquely positions EDF Renewables to help load-serving entities like Shell meet their long-term obligations under California’s Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS) by offering smaller tranches at industry-leading prices,” said Ian Black, senior director, development for EDF Renewables.

“SENA, as one of the largest energy suppliers in the West, is actively growing its renewable power business, building on our strengths and capabilities to bring more clean energy solutions to our customers,” said Glenn Wright, vice president, Shell Energy Americas.  “Working closely with companies like EDF Renewables, and its proven track record as a successful developer of large scale renewables, allows us both to better meet the evolving power needs of our customers.”

Black added, “EDF Renewables is a leading renewable energy counterparty, able to structure offtake agreements around unique needs of clients like Shell Energy North America.  We enjoy our close working relationship with SENA and are excited to announce this agreement to help meet its RPS needs.  We look forward to strengthening our relationship on future contracts with Shell.”

EDF Renewables is one of the largest renewable energy developers in North America with 10 gigawatts of wind, solar, and storage projects developed throughout the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.

Hamburg - The Nordex Group  today announced consolidated sales of EUR 1,772.9 million for the period ended 30 September 2018. Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization amounted to EUR 71.4 million, resulting in an EBITDA margin of 4.0 percent.

SAN DIEGO, SUNNYVALE, Calif., MONTEREY, Calif. (Nov. 8, 2018): EDF Renewables North America announced today the signing of two 20-year Power Purchase Agreements (PPA) for the 128 megawatt (MWac) with 40 MW/160 MWh battery storage Big Beau Solar+Storage Project in Kern County, California. Silicon Valley Clean Energy (SVCE) will purchase 55-percent of the output, and Monterey Bay Community Power (MBCP) will purchase 45-percent. The Project is slated to achieve commercial operation by the end of 2021.

SVCE and MBCP jointly launched a competitive procurement process in September 2017 to take advantage of economies of scale for the combined four county service territory. This unique collaboration between these two Community Choice Aggregators (CCAs) allowed for more purchasing power to better-source cost-effective, clean electricity for their communities.

“We are excited to bring online a new California solar-plus-storage project with SVCE and EDF Renewables,” said Tom Habashi, CEO of Monterey Bay Community Power. “Solar development has been a hallmark of California’s renewable energy boom and with the storage component, we can realize the full potential of solar generation.”
“We are delivering on our commitment to our customers to provide reliable, renewable energy that will help us reach our decarbonization goals,” said Girish Balachandran, CEO of Silicon Valley Clean Energy. “This long-term agreement with EDF Renewables for solar-plus-storage shows that as a CCA we have the financial stability to make investments in these kinds of innovative renewable projects.”

EDF Renewables is pleased to be selected by SVCE and MBCP – two forward-thinking CCAs to supply affordable, in-state green energy to their customers. The inclusion of storage provides the agencies with a 100% clean and partially dispatchable product, allowing them to mitigate the “duck curve” risk and press release monetize price spikes,” said Valerie Barros, director of renewables and storage product development at EDF Renewables.

The electricity generated at full capacity is enough to meet the consumption of up to 64,000 average California homes. This is equivalent to avoiding more than 315,000 metric tons of CO₂ emissions annually1 which represents the greenhouse gas emissions from 67,000 passenger vehicles driven over the course of one year.

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (Oct. 16, 2018): EDF Renewables North America has selected MHI Vestas Offshore Wind as the preferred supplier for the Nautilus Offshore Wind project off the coast of Atlantic City, New Jersey.

The pioneering offshore wind project, the first in New Jersey, has plans to feature three V164-8.3 MW turbines from MHI Vestas, taking the company’s V164 platform to the US offshore wind market for the first time.

Nautilus Offshore Wind’s installation timetable is ahead of other US projects with plans to be operational as soon as 2020.

“We’re proud to be named as preferred supplier for the Nautilus Offshore Wind project and look forward to bringing our flagship V164 turbine to the US market with EDF Renewables,” said MHI Vestas CEO, Philippe Kavafyan. “Nautilus, already permitted, provides us the timely opportunity to bring our technology and experience to the US offshore market. The knowledge gained on this project will help New Jersey achieve its clean energy goals and lay the groundwork for future offshore wind deployment along the eastern seaboard.”

With industry-leading turbine technology and an aggressive installation timetable, the project looks to position New Jersey as the US leader in offshore wind energy and create long-term, renewable energy jobs for years to come.

“The agreement today demonstrates our commitment to offshore wind and our ambition to establish New Jersey at the forefront of the US offshore industry,” said Tristan Grimbert, president & CEO of EDF Renewables North America. “EDF Renewables has a long-standing relationship with MHI Vestas in the UK offshore sector, as well as with its parent company, Vestas, having installed more than 2 GW of turbines onshore in North America.
