A long history


• ... The origins: Quadran - Energies Libres

Quadran was created from the desire to provide widespread access to 4 sources of local and renewable energy: wind power, solar power, biomass energy and hydropower, derived from the 4 elements: air, fire, earth and water.

A major player of green energy production in France, Quadran was born of the merging of JMB Énergie1 and Aérowatt2 on July 2013.

After years of increase supported by the proactive policy of occidental States, renewable energies are now expanding quickly everywhere on the planet. The ecological awareness, the multiplication of nuclear accidents, the forecasted exhaustion of fossil resources, and a strongly growing demand of increasingly numerous populations, have led to the constitution of solid indutries and to the development of reliable and competitive renewable production means.

It is within this context that JMB Énergie and Aérowatt bonded to reach a critical size necessary to pursue their development. The merger of the 2 entities in 2013 allowed the group to rank among the Top 5 of independent energy national players.


• ... 2017: Quadran, Direct Energie group

Quadran has joined, since October 31, 2017, the Direct Energie group, 1st alternative in France in energy supply.

This merger is in keeping with the group's vertical integration strategy that allows it to have a diversified production mix, balanced and consistent with the objectives of the energy transition.

For 15 years, Direct Energie bases its success on its technical expertise, the excellence of its customer relation, its competitiveness and its ability to innovate. 

Direct Energie has become Total Direct Energie in Avril 2019.


• ... 2018: integration to the Total group

In September 2018, the Total group finalised the take-over bid for Direct Energie, in order to strengthen in the electric energy retail and low-carbon production.

A major actor in the energy, Total aims at becoming the major of responsible energy.
