"The projects are getting bigger and bigger and so are our customers and competitors,” says Grégoire de Pierpont, CEO of Enerdeal. Whereas five years ago solar roofs with peak outputs of 200 to 250 kilowatts were the norm, the average is now already at 1 megawatt. “We start from 400 kilowatts and carry out projects up to 10 megawatts, often for international customers,” de Pierpont adds.
Scaling up its business helped lead to strong revenue growth averaging 40% over the past five years. The solid growth of Enerdeal is all the more remarkable because solar panel prices are actually dropping. “In ten years, the average price has dropped by 85%,” de Pierpont confirms.
