Total Eren – the renewable development arm of French oil giant Total – plans steady growth in Brazil mainly through the acquisition of operating and ready-to-build projects, its country head told Recharge.

As it prepares a multi-pronged strategy spanning the regulated and unregulated sectors, Pierre-Emmanuel Moussafir, Brazil manager for Total Eren distanced himself from reports in the media there of a 1GW, 10-year target.

“We don’t have regional targets, Total only has global targets, so we grow as projects are presented and approved,” Moussafir told Recharge.
