Project development

With the experience we have gained over the years, we have become a leading independent solar energy developer and producer. We develop, build, operate and invest in solar energy plants in France, Mexico, Spain and the rest of the world. We are active in the whole life cycle of the project: from land seeking to the operation and management of solar plants.

To date we have developed solar projects with over 650 MWp, which are mostly located in Mexico,France, Spain and Africa. In Mexico, Dhamma Energy has completed the development of solar plants with 470 MWp, whose construction started in 2018 and will continue in 2019. In France, Dhamma Energy has developed over 130 MWp to date.

Dhamma Energy holds currently a pipeline of over 1.5 GWp in solar projects. Main markets for Dhamma Energy are currently Mexico, France and Spain as well as Argentina, Colombia and Subsaharian Africa.

Dhamma Energy manages all the stages of the development of solar projects. This includes feasibility study, land seeking, land rights, environmental studies, site assessments, design of the plant, financial viability, technical evaluation, policy and regulatory analysis and setting up Power Purchase Agreements (PPA).

Construction management

Dhamma Energy works with the main providers (solar modules, inverters, batteries).

Dhamma Energy manages the construction of solar plants and accompanies the partners until the operation phase.

We work we EPC contractors and installers with wide experience in the sector.

Dhamma Energy has developed and operates several solar plants, both ground-mounted and rooftop installations.

Dhamma Energy currently manages the construction of ten rooftop installations with capacities comprised between 44 kWp and 3.3 MWp that will come into operation in 2018 and 2019 in France.

In 2019, Dhamma Energy will start construction of an 88 MWp solar plant in northern France.

 

Structuring and financing

A crucial phase of the project is structuring and financing. We have the expertise and capacities to successfully secure finance for large and medium solar plants under different regulations.

We mobilize private equipty and long term commercial and multilateral debt.

We have financed with success solar plants in different regions. We hold, as owners, projects in in France, Spain, Mauritius and Mexico.

Industrial selfconsumption

SelfSolar: Self-supply

For companies willing to optimize their energy costs, we offer a reliable solution which allows them to benefit of clean electricity, at a competitive and stable price.

  • A tailored photovoltaic power plant serving energy needs and adapted to the location’s characteristics.
  • Location on a field close to the company or use of the public grid to transport the electricity to the consumption point.
  • Hybridization of the photovoltaic system with the existing diesel generator, or supply from the public grid, to limit the intermittency.

    Off-grid and minigrids

    Off-grid solar installations and mini-grids systems with solar energy are to grow rapidly in the next years in the world. This kind of systems are suitable in the industrial sector and in remote rural areas, especially in Africa and Latin America.

    Dhamma Energy is present in the segment of isolated solar projects, off-grid and mini-grids systems with solar energy and batteries as well as other technologies.

    The growth of isolated solar projects has been driven by the reduction of costs of solar energy in the lasts years and will keep growing in the future thanks also to the reduction in the costs of storage systems.
