100% RENEWABLE ENERGY
Ecology by conviction
Green City Energy France is a subsidiary of Green City AG, itself majority owned by the environmental association Green City eV based in Munich.
Since 2010, the French subsidiary of Green City has actively participated in accelerating the energy transition by developing, building and operating renewable energy production plants, mainly photovoltaic and hydroelectric. Our projects are intended for participatory and citizen funds supported by our parent company in Munich. Green City Energy France is also responsible for the development of projects in Spain, in particular for ground-based photovoltaic plants of several tens of MWp.
For 30 years, the environmental protection association Green City eV has contributed through its actions to improving the quality of life of citizens. A pioneer in the development of renewable energies, the Green City eV Association is at the origin of the creation of new modes of financing for projects. In 2005, the association created Green City Energy GmbH (later to become Green City AG) in order to intensify the development of projects.
Green City offers an innovative and participatory model to finance its renewable energy projects by creating citizen investment funds open to the general public. Our main mission is to develop, finance, build and operate photovoltaic, wind and hydroelectric power plants. Green City is present in France, Germany, Italy and Spain and continues to develop in Europe to offer ever greener energy to as many people as possible.
