Introduction

New Energies is committed to developing renewable energies that will, in combination with hydrocarbons, help respond to the challenge of climate change by developing a diversified energy mix while also generating lower CO2 emissions. To this end, TOTAL is focusing on two main themes of development: solar energy, which benefits from unlimited energy resources, particularly in certain geographical areas where the Group has a significant presence, and the conversion of biomass through biotechnology, which aims to develop new biosourced product solutions for transport and chemicals. In addition, the Group actively monitors other renewable energies it does not currently prioritize for development.
