  • At first glance, Reunion Island seems like a paradise — with its palm trees, lush green landscapes and fresh sea breeze.
  • The island’s electricity currently mostly stems from French utility EDF’s heavy oil factory in the city of Le Port in the northwest of the island, and from two power plants, owned by Albioma, running on coal roughly six months of the year.
  • The energy producer has completed 11 photovoltaic projects on the island with a total capacity of 34 MW, at least another 30 MW are in the pipeline.
