INTRODUCING THE COMPANY

Blue Solutions has been listed on the Paris stock market since 30 October 2013, and brings together all the Bolloré Group’s electricity storage activities.

By diversifying its historical activity as a paper and ultra-thin plastic-film producer, the Bolloré Group has moved into the production of electrical components for capacitors and now controls over one-third of the global market. Building on this expertise and after 20 years in R&D, the Group has successfully developed batteries and electricity storage solutions based on a unique technology, the LMP® (Lithium Metal Polymer) battery as well as on supercapacitor technology.

At a time when energy transition and energy access for all have become major concerns for citizens, smart cities and governments, the Bolloré Group relies on its expertise to design, develop and market complete solutions for the production, storage and intelligent management of electricity.

Blue Solutions has more than 300 researchers, engineers and technicians who manufacture these high technology batteries on two production sites located in Brittany and Canada. Today the annual production capacity is 500 MWh. It could be brought to 1.5 GWh in order to follow the current market dynamic.

These batteries are used in mobile applications (cars, buses, trams) and also in stationary applications for companies, electric operators, communities and governments to facilitate the integration of renewable energies or to allow 1.2 billion people access to energy they are deprived of today.

These solutions are developed and marketed by other organisations in the Group brought together in Blue Applications. Since 2011 they have experienced rapid developments throughout the world.

Together, Blue Solutions and Blue Applications expect to benefit from unique positioning as an integrator, having both batteries and complete solutions to meet the new energy challenges in both today’s and tomorrow’s world.
