Business sectorRenewable energies
Co-founded by two brothers, Augustin and Hadrien Clément-Fromentel, Orion Énergies, major French player in photovoltaic energy, is a development, financing, construction, and operation platform. With a track record of around fifteen years, the company, which employs nearly 40 experts based in Paris and Lyon, has developed its expertise around intermediate-sized roof and ground projects (on abandoned or degraded land).
Since 2020, Orion Énergies has become an independent electricity producer by operating photovoltaic power plants developed in-house and already operates more than 150 power plants, giving it a strong local presence.
Through its minority stake, the Impact team supports Orion Énergies in a new phase of its development, which includes the definition of a tailored impact plan based on four fundamental commitments:
• proximity to territories;
• integrity at the heart of actions;
• collective energy; and
• daily agility.
Making a difference
Orion Énergies’ activities provide a concrete response to the energy transition and the fight against climate change, and also play a significant role in achieving French and European energy independence objectives.
In order to illustrate its position as a responsible company, Orion Énergies has recently defined its purpose as “Sustainably brightening our territories”.
