Catherine MacGregor, CEO, said: “In the first semester, ENGIE has achieved a very strong financial performance, driven by the development of our renewable activities and the results of our energy management activities in a context still characterized by high price volatility. We have signed an agreement with the Belgian government significantly reducing the risks on the overall amount linked to the management of nuclear waste and providing the necessary visibility on the 10-year extension of the two units Doel 4 and Tihange 3. ENGIE has also made significant progress across all GBUs, including the acquisition of BTE Renewables in South Africa, the commissioning of BESS Hazelwood in Australia, and the success on the tender of 1,000 km power transmission lines in Brazil. In line with our strategic plan, we keep improving our business profile while leveraging our growth platforms. We are confident in the strength of our integrated model to meet the challenges of the energy transition both in the short and long-term.”
