San Diego, August 21, 2012 — enXco, an EDF Energies Nouvelles company, announces a name change to EDF Renewable Energy. The new brand name is a natural progression of the integration process with the EDF group.
Ten years ago, EDF Energies Nouvelles, the EDF unit specializing in renewable energy, acquired enXco, initiating growth in the company throughout the U.S., Mexico and Canada.
At the time of the acquisition, the EDF group (Electricité de France) owned 50 percent of EDF Energies Nouvelles. EDF acquired the remaining 50 percent 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 the Development group and the operations and maintenance (O&M) group — formerly enXco Service Corp. — by changing the name of the O&M group to EDF Renewable Services.
The closer alignment to the EDF group allows EDF Renewable Energy and EDF Renewable Services to capitalize on shared knowledge, financial strength and long-term stability.
EDF Renewable Energy specializes in wind, solar, biomass and biogas project design, development, construction, operations and maintenance. It develops, builds, owns and operates renewable energy projects in the U.S. for its own account as well as for third party ownership.
