Helexia, a subsidiary of Voltalia (Euronext Paris, ISIN code: FR0011995588), helps companies reduce their energy bills. With its energy efficiency services, Helexia reduces the electricity consumption of companies. At the same time, Helexia enables companies to produce photovoltaic electricity on their sites, on their roofs or on their parking lots.

In the context of energy scarcity and cost inflation, European companies need to reduce their energy bills.This energy transition can only be achieved with a comprehensive approach: reducing energy consumption and producing green energy.

Helexia's range of services is broad and and covers the definition of the strategy, the execution of works and the operation (control and maintenance) of the installations.

Helexia can ensure these tasks for the customer, who then remains the owner of the installations, or carry on its balance sheet the investments required to improve energy efficiency (energy performance contracts) or to produce solar energy (self-consumption or solar electricity sales contracts). For the customer, this makes it possible to transform the constraint into an opportunity. 

Helexia is deploying a very strong growth system to meet the needs of its clients. On the only aspect of photovoltaic production whose investment is carried by Helexia, the portfolio of roofs and solar shades under contract1 went from 52 to 402 megawatts in 36 months: a multiplication by 7.7.

"In recent years, Helexia's clients' first priority has often been to reduce their carbon footprint, although reducing energy costs has not been overlooked. With the scarcity of energy that now characterizes the news in many countries, reducing consumption and on-site photovoltaic production have become sometimes vital issues. Helexia helps its clients achieve their financial and environmental objectives," said Sébastien Clerc, CEO of Voltalia.

"Each country has its own particularities: France now has a strong political will to cover parking lots with solar shading; Spain is circumventing the constraints of connection to the electricity grid by increasing self-consumption; and Portugal is multiplying the number of electric vehicle chargers associated with on-site photovoltaic production. But there is a common trend: that of energy sobriety," says Benjamin Simonis, Managing Director of Helexia.

Helexia accompanied the Portuguese company Joluso Invepe in its energetic transition. Specialising in the production of bodywork and semi-trailers for trucks since 1986, the company called on Helexia to advise it and monitor the work. Helexia carried out an energy audit to identify possible savings, and then replaced the lighting with LED lamps. Helexia has also installed a 182 kilowatt photovoltaic power plant on the roof, enabling the production of 283 megawatt hours and covering 33% of the company's energy needs.

Consultancy services help to define the energy strategy to be implemented in order to achieve the CSR objectives of companies and to achieve real budgetary savings.

Asset and Energy Management solutions help to optimise energy consumption. The implementation of data collection systems and the analysis of this data by qualified Energy Managers helps to monitor the efficiency of the systems and improve their management.
