ENGIE accelerates in battery storage through the acquisition of Broad Reach Power in the United States

Date: 08/24/2023

A major step towards ENGIE’s objective of reaching 10 GW of battery capacity within
the Group by 2030 to support the development of renewable energies

ENGIE announces it has signed a binding agreement for the acquisition of 100% of Broad Reach
Power, a company specialized in battery storage and based in Houston, from private equity funds
EnCap and Apollo.


The transaction involves 350MW of operating assets, as well as 880MW under construction
assets with a commissioning expected before the end of 2024, 1.7GW of advanced stage projects
and a significant pipeline of early stage projects. The projects are located in Texas, California and
the central states of the United States. Broad Reach Power skills, tools and teams are the perfect
fit, in and outside the United States, with ENGIE’s integrated model.


The acquisition will support the Group’s goal of having 10 GW of battery capacity globally by
2030. It will also strengthen ENGIE’s position as a leader in the energy transition in the United
States, where the group already has significant positions through its renewable assets (5GW in
operation at the end of 2022), battery storage and its energy management platform. The
development of these projects will respond to the strong need for flexibility generated by the
growth of the share of renewable energies in the energy mix and will increase ENGIE capacity to
provide 24/7 decarbonized electricity to his customers.


Completion of the transaction is expected by Q4 2023, subject to the fulfilment of certain
approvals from anti-trust and energy regulatory authorities.


For Catherine MacGregor, Chief Executive Officer of ENGIE: “This acquisition is fully in line
with ENGIE’s strategy: it will contribute to the development of a low-carbon, affordable and
resilient energy system where flexible assets will play a critical role alongside renewables.”
