Ranked first in the global nuclear power industry, AREVA's unique integrated offering covers every stage of the fuel cycle, reactor design and construction, and related services.  In addition, the group is developing a portfolio of operations in renewable energies. AREVA is also a world leader in electricity transmission and distribution and offers its customers a complete range of solutions for greater grid stability and energy efficiency.
Sustainable development is a core component of the group's industrial strategy. Its 75,000 employees work every day to make AREVA a responsible industrial player that is helping to supply ever cleaner, safer and more economical energy to the greatest number of people.
AREVA Renewable
AREVA is strongly committed to renewable as part of its strategy to provide its customers with innovative, environmentally friendly sources of energy. The Renewable Energies business unit was formed at the end of 2006 to:

• broaden the group's offering in technologies for CO2-free energy production and, in particular, to offer decentralized energy supply;
• become a significant player in wind power, bioenergies and generation-scale solar power by participating in their rapid industrial development; and
• develop hydrogen energy and bring fuel cell and renewable energy storage solutions into commercial production.
Our operations cover three fields: generation-scale solar power, wind energy, bioenergies and hydrogen energy.
Solar power
This is AREVA Renewable's newest business line.  AREVA has recently acquired Ausra, Inc. as the platform for this business line.  It is headquartered in the Bay Area, but centers of execution are being assessed in CO, TX, PA, AZ Australia and other international locations.  We intend to focus on CSP standalone generation-scale solutions and steam augmentation to existing fossil-fueled plants throughout the world.  We also intend to pursue larger CPV solutions for our traditional utility customers. 
AREVA Solar will take turnkey project responsibility for delivery of its CSP and CPV solutions.
Wind power
We are developing high power turbines that convert the wind's motive power into electricity. In October 2007, we acquired a 51% stake in Multibrid, a German manufacturer of offshore wind turbines.

AREVA Bioenergies, a branch of AREVA Renewable, has a solid experience in the biomass sector having designed and built more than 100 biopower facilities in Europe, Asia and South America with capacity of more than 2,500 megawatts.
We supply turnkey biomass and biogas power plants that convert organic materials of plant and animal origin into energy. In January 2008, we acquired 70% of Koblitz, a Brazilian firm that supplies power plants fueled with sugarcane bagasse and small hydroelectric plants.
On, September 24, 2008, AREVA and Duke Energy announced the formation of ADAGE™, an innovative joint venture dedicated to the development of green energy solutions for U.S. electricity customers with the aim of becoming a US market leader in biopower. AREVA Bioenergies will be in charge of designing and building the biomass power plants developed by ADAGE on a EPC basis.
AREVA Bioenergies Inc. is looking for talented and skilled individuals to form its US team to handle the engineering, procurement and construction of biomass power plants to be built across the US.
Hydrogen energy
Through our subsidiary Helion, we offer solutions for producing hydrogen by water electrolysis and for generating electricity with fuel cells. The fuel cell combines hydrogen and oxygen via a membrane, simultaneously creating water, heat and electricity. Reverse process is used in electrolysis.  AREVA is assessing the use of this technology for storage solutions in other renewable energy segments.
