Our history

Pâris Mouratoglou :

Having already co-founded two companies in the energy sector (Energies in 1979 and Sithe in 1983, in partnership with Compagnie Générale des Eaux), in 1991 Pâris Mouratoglou created SIIF, dedicated to producing wind and solar energy. Re-dubbed EDF Energies Nouvelles after EDF took an equity stake, the company was floated on the Stock Exchange in 2006 before being 100% taken over by the long-standing energy provider in 2011.

The Birth of The EREN Groupe :

In 2012, Pâris Mouratoglou left the EDF Energies Nouvelles Board of Directors, David Corchia left its management team, and together they founded the EREN Groupe.

They have since devoted themselves full time to developing EREN Groupe.

In 2015, four years after it was created and in order to boost its development, Pâris Mouratoglou announced the opening up of EREN Renewable Energy’s capital (EREN Groupe subsidiaries dedicated to generating renewable energy) to corporations: funds held by the Peugeot (PSA) families, the Salvepar (Tikehau group) investment company, Nextworld and Bpifrance. This raised an increase in capital of nearly €200 million.

In September 2017, the Total group invested €237.5 million in EREN Renewable Energy which was then renamed Total Eren.

This consortium of financial and industrial partners helps to support Total Eren’s growth ambitions in the renewable energies sector.

A word from our Founders :

Technological innovation to make natural resources savings

With the world’s population and consumption of raw materials per person continuing to increase, it is vital to ask questions about the balance between economic growth – key to improving people’s living conditions – and the pressure it puts on the availability and quality of natural resources.

It is in the relationship between the quality of resources used and the results – “efficiency” – that we find the central response to this major challenge: the cheapest energy is energy we do not use. And this frugal principle applies as much to energy as to water production or the use of construction materials.

Today, technological innovations allow us to tackle waste in a profitable way, i.e. to spend less than the saved resources cost. This is the deep conviction on which we founded EREN Groupe.

EREN Groupe’s goal is to make reliable and competitive technology accessible so that savings can be made on natural resources.

We hope to bring all of our major stakeholders on board with this goal (industrial and financial partners both in the public and private sector, current and future customers, institutions, staff members and managers, etc.) and get them all involved to meet this challenge that affects us all.
