TotalEnergies, through its distributed renewable energy generation solutions in Asia, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Aden Group, a leader in sustainable & data-driven management of buildings and business/industrial parks. This MoU is to explore several collaborative prospects in sharing and providing advanced solutions to reduce the carbon footprint of built assets through solar energy and data-driven energy optimization.
Under the alliance, the partners will team up to explore the potential of TotalEnergies’ development of solar energy projects, as well as Aden Group’s exploration of new clients for digitalized asset lifecycle management in South-East Asia. This will be accomplished by combining TotalEnergies’ expertise in the solar rooftop C&I (Commercial & Industrial) market with Aden Group’s experience in providing innovative energy-management solutions to C&I clients in the region through its digital twin platform, Akila.
This is a major step in the regional development of energy and data solutions for both parties: Aden Group, which has +300 clients in its ASEAN cluster and an additional +200 clients in Vietnam; and TotalEnergies, a multi-energy company with more than 50 years of presence in South-East Asia. Furthermore, the partners will work together on developing the sustainability values that they will bring to clients.
Joachim Poylo, Founder & President of Aden Group said, “We are excited to partner with TotalEnergies and confident that their world-leading expertise in renewable energy will be a tremendous amplifier for Aden Group’s own mission of linking facility management with ESG-supportive solutions for the built environment. This is an exciting acceleration of work we’ve already begun with our clients across South-East Asia, furthering our goal of managing facilities in closer alignment with international ESG standards. We are looking forward to working with TotalEnergies to have more positive impact for our clients’ business needs and for the planet.”
Gavin Adda, Head of TotalEnergies Renewables Distributed Generation Asia said, “TotalEnergies is committed to providing its customers with a solution that fulfils both environmental sustainability and cost-saving goals. As a leading solar service provider for commercial and industrial businesses trusted by small to large sized manufacturing companies as the solar energy partner of choice, we look forward to supporting companies in driving down their carbon footprint, using our expertise in tailor-made solar solutions for any business energy needs”
