Beyond being an independent solar energy producer, Amarenco wants to be a player in the decarbonization and transformation of our economic model.
In 2020, high profile institutional investors joined Amarenco’s capital. Heavily involved in energy transition, they applauded the group’s vision of the future and joined to support its development ambitions.

At Amarenco we found real potential bolstered by a high-flying team, genuine engagement and an ambitious vision
“A Private Equity subsidiary of Crédit Agricole, our management company works with agricultural and food industries and now energy transition through the CA Transitions Fund, guided by the GreenFin label. We pay very close attention to environmental criteria as well as social, corporate and governance issues and Amarenco’s engagements in this area are exemplary. “
We make alternative investments and are driven by an equally alternative point of view. Amarenco is fully in line with this approach
“With over a billion euros, our fund is the first in our economy dedicated to decarbonisation. “
“The challenge? Institutionalise investments in climate change to radically change our system. The energy transition requires 4 trillion euros of investments a year. We need to signpost 3% of global savings every year to companies decarbonising our economy, like Amarenco. We are positioning ourselves together as agents of change. “
"Amarenco has the potential to become a global reference in the field of renewable energy"
"Beyond our financial support, Tikehau provides Amarenco with its international platform (12 offices) and its experience with high-growth companies in the energy transition sector"
Quite simply, the market potential for energy transition is huge. France and Europe need to work even harder to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and the renewable energy sector therefore has a very promising future.
>Support for low-carbon energy production represents a key stage and ground-breaking innovations will surely follow. Storage solutions and green hydrogen get top billing but brand-new technologies and sectors will also follow, along with innovations that are yet to be imagined and developed. For investors mindful of energy transition and, more generally, environmental transition, it is in these areas that their financial efforts should be focused.
> A new world needs building and Amarenco is working hard at it alongside an entire ecosystem. Energy is a primary essential that everyone needs. The production of renewable energies is not only sustainable, it is also profitable and, even more importantly, fundamental. Investment in this market takes on its full meaning as we endeavour to draw the shape of tomorrow’s world with a positive local and global impact, for everyone’s benefit.
DID YOU SAY CROWDFUNDING?
Crowdfunding is an integral part of Amarenco’s development strategy and offers private investors a unique opportunity: be a part of a fruitful adventure that is full of meaning.
> In 2017-2018 Amarenco launched its participative financing platform, in partnership with Lendopolis, a subsidiary of the La Poste group. This was a new approach, particularly on the energy market, and perfectly in line with the group’s philosophy. Its photovoltaic installations have a local impact so it seemed natural to contact local investors, in the style of an ecosystem.
>Since then, Amarenco has raised over 30 M€ , following a highly promising exponential curve. What appealed to the private investors? This form of asset diversification is very interesting as it represents subscription for convertible bonds with a 5% yield over 4 years without taking any risks. People can invest in Amarenco projects and, more generally, support the energy transition.
