“I would like to welcome the Kyon Energy teams to TotalEnergies. The acquisition of this company, one of the leaders in its market, is a key element in our presence in the German electricity market, which is the largest in Europe,” said Stéphane Michel, President Gas, Renewables & Power at TotalEnergies.

“This acquisition will enable us to accelerate the development of our Integrated Power activities in Germany, both in production, trading, aggregation and marketing of low-carbon electricity available 24 hours a day. It also contributes to our profitability target for this business segment of 12% ROACE by 2028.”

Adrian Kapsalis, CEO of Kyon Energy, said, “This partnership with TotalEnergies represents a key moment for Kyon Energy, as we aim to become one of Europe’s leading flexibility providers. By joining forces, we are consolidating our position in the German electricity market, and thus making a direct contribution to its transition to a more sustainable system”.
