As a recognized leader in the worldwide renewable energy industry, it remains key for us to continue our focus on a management model that secures delivery of our commitments through close control of all processes, good governance practices and transparency in performance.

This adherence to process controls and governance has created a proven track record of over a decade with regards to meeting profitability and power generation targets, while optimizing costs and technology performance.

By 2050, wind and solar technology will provide almost 50% of total electricity globally

FRV believes in combining photovoltaic and/or wind power with battery storage to ensure the flow of energy at all times.

The increase in the penetration of renewables, triggers new technological challenges, such as electricity supply stabilization and Frequency Regulation and batteries are expected to play a major role in providing solutions to them.

In over a decade of successful operations, we have consolidated our position as one of the global leaders in the solar energy market with presence in Africa, Asia, Europe, the Americas, Australia and the Middle East.

With a long-term perspective, our aim today is both to continue to be a leader in the global renewable energy industry and, to keep growing into new markets that offer future development opportunities in the sector.

Leading the transformation of the energy market

The rapid increase of renewable energy competitiveness vs conventional fossil-fuel based power generation, has transformed the energy industry worldwide.

As pioneers, FRV is leading this change adapting our business strategy and considering a mixed business model that combines long-term ownership of assets instead of just being focused on the sale of plants and asset turn-over.

Today, FRV has evolved to become a fully integrated IPP while it continues with its involvement across most of the business activities of its projects, including development, construction, financing and operation of large- scale solar PV and wind projects.
