Solar energy

Artelia has been active in the field of photovoltaics for more than 20 years, overseeing projects throughout their entire life cycle from the preliminary studies through to system commissioning.
Artelia thus participates in projects involving solar power with and without concentration, hybrid power systems (solar coupled with another energy source or a generator), on mini-grids, in isolated sites, or with storage facilities. To date Artelia has assisted with PV projects totalling more than 250 MWp (connected, isolated, rooftop or ground-mounted) and audited more than 1 GWp in France and around the world. Artelia is pursuing development in this field internationally, and is currently supervising the installation of a ground-mounted plant with a capacity of more than 100 MWp in Central America.


Liberia chose to focus on renewable energy in its development plan for the Saint Paul River basin to strengthen its national electricity supply and contribute to the interconnected CLSG (Côte d’Ivoire-Liberia-Sierra Leone-Guinea) network.

Mali | Koutalia, Sikasso

Artelia was in charge of studying the connection of the photovoltaic power plants in Koutalia (55 MW) and Sikasso (65 MW) to the interconnected network in Mali. Precise models of intermittent power generation were developed.

At the request of the French Environment and Energy Management Agency (ADEME), our teams studied the technical, organisational and economic implications of an electricity mix containing a large proportion of renewables (75% to 100%) up to 2030 for France’s island regions (Réunion, Guadeloupe, Mar
