WPO keeps the top spot

We are happy to announce that WPO maintains the top spot as France’s Number 1 independent asset management provider for the fourth year in a row. As detailed in the France Energie Eolienne’s (FEE) annual Wind Energy 2017 Report, WPO ranks 7th overall, when in direct comparison with utilities and owner operators, but we remain at the top of the list of fully independent service providers. We are also the leading independent provider for the UK, Ireland and Sweden.

The FEE report was released at the Colloque National Eolien, held at the Parc Floral in Paris last month. WPO revealed its new brand to the French wind sector at this successful event, hosting industry colleagues in our outdoor WPO café where we offered refreshments and ambient music from a saxophonist, who harnessed the wind in a particularly enjoyable manner to provide entertainment for all!

Refreshing the renewables industry

WPO is providing the wind sector with something a little different at this year’s Colloque National Eolien in Paris on 19-20 September. We will be ‘refreshing the renewables industry’ with a unique offering: an outdoor WPO café, serving wine, beer and soft drinks.

We invite all attendees to come and celebrate our new identity and brand and enjoy the live music we have arranged. Hint…it’s a ‘wind’ instrument…

Leading renewables asset management company, WPO, celebrates success with new brand

WPO, formerly Wind Prospect Operations, launched its new brand today in celebration of its increasingly successful operations and independence.

“Our new look reflects our values and mission and is a continuation of the journey we have taken since we became independent in 2015,” explains WPO CEO Barthélémy Rouer. “We want to reveal more clearly what we do and who we are. Our words, colours and imagery all point towards our core operations: We are ‘in the business of positive energy’.”

WPO provides asset management and specialist services for over 3 Gigawatts of operational wind and solar energy power plants, in nine European countries. They are the leading independent third-party provider in France, UK, Ireland and Sweden.

“Our rebrand reflects our core values and objectives as well as our enduring mission: to offer world-class services that lower the cost of energy though maximising site production and optimising resources by remaining safe, reliable and fit-for-purpose,” explains WPO Managing Director Duncan Levie.

Since separating from the Wind Prospect Group in 2015, WPO has gone from strength to strength: “Our growing market presence means we now operate utility-size across nine European countries with over 70 employees operating from 27 offices and service points. Our rebrand marks an exciting time for WPO as we continue to flourish and move ever-closer to our ultimate ambition of being the number one choice for asset management and related specialist services in Europe,” concludes Rouer.
