We established our new corporate office in the United States located in Dallas, Texas, according to our strategy of international expansion in countries with a strong renewable energy industry.
Our search for new business opportunities will consolidate our position on the American continent, where we already have 21 plants in eight countries.
As José Miguel Plaza, our Managing Director in the North American country, points out, “we are committed to returning to the United States, where we will take advantage of our knowledge of the country, where we have already built several photovoltaic plants, relying on its strong industrial fabric to contribute to its sustainability and energy efficiency objectives”.
The new location of our offices in the USA allows us to have a better understanding of and closer relationship with our clients to cover all the needs of large-scale photovoltaic and energy storage projects, from engineering to operation and maintenance. This reflects our main objective of increasing our portfolio of PV and BESS projects in the USA. “At GRS we have the conviction and commitment to contribute to the NDC submitted by the United States to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. We aim to achieve a 100% clean economy and reach net-zero emissions by 2050,” says Plaza.
The United States currently has 292,065 MW of installed renewable capacity, according to the International Renewable Energy Agency’s (IRENA) 2021 Renewable Capacity Statistical Annual Report. Furthermore, its sustainability and energy efficiency policies make it one of the countries with the strongest renewable influence and the most ambitious sustainability goals worldwide.
As Plaza explains, “Solar energy is more affordable, accessible and prevalent than ever in the United States. Technological advances and innovative solutions are needed to increase efficiency, reduce costs and enable utilities to trust solar for base load. Therefore, we believe it is critical to expand our business and stay ahead of the curve to improve the profitability of each project”.
In this new cycle, we estimate a growth of 2 GW installed over the next 4 years.
