We

Axpo France is pushing ahead with Axpo's origination activities in the electricity and gas business in France. The French subsidiary in Lyon offers local, regional and national clients various services in the areas of portfolio management, structured products, emission certificates and renewable energy. At the same time, Axpo France maintains partnerships with other energy traders, producers and resellers in the wholesale market. The team is headed by Joanna Juszczak. 

After entering into the wind farm development business by means of the acquisition of the specialized company Volkswind in 2015 which is present in Germany and France, Axpo launched its activities in solar energy with the acquisition of the French photovoltaic developer Urbasolar in 2019. In doing so, Axpo continues to consistently pursue a strategy for profitable growth in the international business with renewable energies. With Urbasolar, Axpo will be active along the entire solar energy value chain (planning, construction, operation).
