We used CB Insights data to outline French utility company ENGIE's investments and strategy in emerging markets.
The world’s largest utilities (by market cap) are spread across the US and Europe. Many of them are retaining and growing their power by incorporating new technologies, integrating new sources of energy into their grids, and expanding to newer emerging markets.
To enter these high-growth countries, many are partnering with regional power producers or launching large-scale energy projects in emerging markets. Few are making investments.
According to CB Insights data, only a single utility stands out for its high level of activity in emerging markets. ENGIE is a French utility company that also generates natural gas, renewable energy, and nuclear energy.
