Neoen Reports 11% Surge in Q1 Electricity Generation, Despite Slight Revenue Dip

In the latest financial update from , a prominent player in the sector, the company revealed a notable 11% uptick in generation from its renewable energy assets during the first quarter of 2024. Despite this impressive increase, revenue experienced a marginal decline compared to the same period last year.

During Q1, electricity generation soared to just over 2 terawatt hours, showcasing Neoen's continued commitment to bolstering clean energy production. However, revenue figures dipped by 8% at current exchange rates, amounting to €141.4 million.

The company reiterated its adjusted EBITDA target for 2024, aiming for a range between €530 million and €560 million, with an adjusted EBITDA margin exceeding 85%.

Looking ahead, Neoen is optimistic about its revenue trajectory, anticipating a return to growth in the coming quarters. This optimism is fueled by the gradual commissioning of 3GW in assets currently under construction. Noteworthy among these are several long-duration batteries, aligning with Neoen's strategic goals outlined over a year ago.

Barbaro highlighted the significance of Neoen's contributions to reliability, citing the recent award of a contract for a new 300 MW/4-hour storage capacity project in Western Australia. He emphasized, “The new 300 MW/4-hour storage capacity contract awarded in Western Australia is a testament to the value of the solutions we can provide to enhance grid reliability.”

With a burgeoning portfolio of batteries, totaling 1.9GW/4.5GWh in operation or under construction, Neoen solidifies its position as a global leader in storage solutions.
