Engie SA (ENGI.FR) said Tuesday that it is partnering with Suez SA (SEV.FR) to boost the energy transition of French regions through the development of photovoltaic solar parks in all recycling and recovery waste-storage facilities in mainland France.

Engie said there are about 100 sites in total, with an estimated installed capacity of one gigawatt, which is the equivalent to the capacity of a nuclear reactor and will avoid the production of 27,500 tons of C02 per year.

The partnership's first project, a ground-mounted 12-megawatt plant at the Drambon storage facility in the Cote-d'Or department in eastern France, will be launched in 2018, said Engie.
