About Us

Greensolver

A pure service player focused on
delivering value for its customers

 

Presentation

History

Greensolver was created as we felt there was a real need in the market for an experienced and independent service provider catering to the infrastructure investors to deliver professional, world class services.

Greensolver was until 2013 a subsidiary of Veolia Environnement and Eolfi where it became quickly a leading independent technical expert in the field of renewable energy. In April 2013, following an MBO, Guy Auger, its current president, bought Greensolver via Green Services Group.

Early 2016, Greensolver merged with Dutch asset manager PLY Energy and now benefits from 3 European offices and 30 employees dedicated to assets optimization. To learn more about the merger, please click here.

Our ambitions are global but we remain a human-sized company, owned by the people who manage assets every day and know the challenges of our industry.

Certifications

Greensolver is certified with ISO 9001 (quality), ISO 14001 (environment), ISO 55001 (asset management) and OHSAS 18001 (Health & Safety). Those certifications confirm our commitment to deliver the highest levels of quality management, sustainability and health & safety.

 

Philosophy

Vision

We are truly independent. We do not develop projects we don’t own assets, and we never will. This ensures our customers get our full, undivided attention and ensures no conflicts of interest between us.

We don’t see ourselves only as asset managers, we see ourselves as assets maximizers. From construction to operation and consulting, we go beyond and constantly look for ways to get more production out of the asset and over a longer period of time.

 

Working with us

Our team of experts handles both TCM, construction & advisory missions. This means that as a customer you always get experienced professionals working for your assets.

Each customer also benefits from a dedicated account manager, which act as your single point of contact within our organization. Responsible of coordinating all activities related to your assets, he is responsible (and paid on) the results of your wind or solar asset.

Innovation being one of our priority, each asset manager benefits from 10% of his time dedicated to it. Thanks to that, we’ve been able to develop innovative solutions (Greensolver index, GreenBoost & Bladesolver) & piece of mind articles allowing you to take most advantage out of your assets.
