Renewable energy developer enXco, an EDF Energies Nouvelles company, has changed its name to EDF Renewable Energy. According to the company, the new brand name is a natural progression of the integration process with the EDF group.

EDF Energies Nouvelles, the EDF subsidiary specializing in renewable energy, acquired enXco 10 years ago. At the time of the acquisition, the EDF group owned 50% of EDF Energies Nouvelles. EDF acquired the remaining 50% of EDF Energies Nouvelles in August 2011, and enXco is now fully integrated within the group under a new name, EDF Renewable Energy.

EDF Renewable Energy is maintaining the delineation between its development group and its operations and maintenance (O&M) group (formerly enXco Service Corp.) by changing the name of the O&M group to EDF Renewable Services. The services division will continue to perform all required O&M for wind and solar energy projects.

“The full integration with EDF allows for increased global backing, new financial and technical resources, and the stability to expand our business, while maintaining our entrepreneurial spirit,” explains Tristan Grimbert, the company’s president and CEO. “The deeper affiliation with EDF will create a stronger U.S. subsidiary poised to meet future challenges.”
