Big or small, we build for all
Three years ago, EnergyVision was almost entirely focused on China and Morocco. We had a small office in Belgium, an even smaller warehouse and a little van. Today we are the undisputed leader in solar panel and relighting projects in Flanders and the Brussels-Capital Region.
EnergyVision in Belgium
That means big projects like the 10,000 solar panels on the Gare Maritime (the largest solar project in Brussels and the largest roof installation in the whole of Belgium since 2012!). It also means small customers like the hundreds of households who have received 10 to 16 solar panels free of charge as part of our Brusol project. In a single year, our market share has risen from 5% to more than 45%, specifically in the Brussels-Capital Region. And we are only just getting started.

EnergyVision in China
EnergyVision is small and China is huge, but the combination really works. In 2020 we will pass the 100 MWp mark for solar panel installations constructed in China. That means approximately 350,000 solar panels and 125 million kWh of green electricity per year, all built and financed by EnergyVision.
Of course the Chinese market is immense: up to 60 GW in projects each year. At 60 MW, our market share is just 0.1%. But look closer and it soon becomes clear why the whole sector in China knows about EnergyVision. Of those 60 GW of solar panel installations, around 54 GW are located on land (ground-based sites) or houses (residential sector). Only 6 GW are roof-mounted projects. Projects where the customer (a factory or SME) consumes the energy locally itself only account for 600 MW (10% of 6 GW). That is the niche that EnergyVision focuses on. Within that niche (600 MW), our 60 MW of annual growth represents a market share of no less than 10%.

EnergyVision in Morocco
Since His Majesty King Mohammed VI proclaimed Morocco as the land of sunshine, it seems as though the whole world has its eyes on the region. Morocco is and continues to be a difficult market. It is very price driven and risk averse. Moroccans are born hagglers and they know what they want. And yet sometimes there is a glut of poor-quality solar panels and transformers flooding the market. The number of small-scale fitters is doubling with each year that passes.
EnergyVision is making a real difference here. We are gradually increasing our market share, injecting top quality into the country and embarking on long-term relationships with our customers, with guarantees lasting from ten years up to as much as thirty years. This has turned us into an absolute benchmark for solar panels and solar irrigation in Morocco in just five years. With a market share of more than 20%, we are the clear leaders in Morocco. And we are still growing.
