Developing renewable energy solutions

Renewable energies are an important aspect of the energy transition whose development largely depends on national or regional policies and subsidies. Convinced of the importance of spreading these new energies, Rexel follows local markets as closely as possible in order to provide the most relevant solutions.

Photovoltaic solar solutions and electric vehicles


The solar panels installed on the roof of a vocational school in Boras will supply 58,000 kWh/year.

1.3 M

The number of electric vehicles in the world in 2015, nearly twice what it was in 2014. This number should reach 150 million in 2040 (the International Energy Agency’s World Energy Outlook 2016)

Throughout the world, photovoltaic solar solutions have demonstrated their efficiency in lowering the GHG (Greenhouse Gas) emissions of residential and commercial buildings. Rexel offers a full range of dedicated equipment: solar panels, mounting structures, inverters, special cables, and safety fitting.

In Sweden for example, Storel, one of the Group’s banners, recently installed solar panels on the roof of a vocational school in Boras that will provide 58,000 kWh/year.

In 2016, Rexel Energy Solutions in Sweden, specializing in solar photovoltaics, created a customized installation for Schneider Electric’s Swedish headquarters: a photovoltaic charging station for electric vehicles that uses the building’s network, which serves as an energy storage unit. The electricity produced by the solar panels is used, depending on needs, to supply the headquarters’ offices or recharge vehicles.

Optimize energy consumption through a multi-energy approach

Accounting for 40% of a building’s total energy consumption, HVAC is one of the most energy-consuming items. Rexel’s HVAC solutions aim to control this consumption while improving occupants’ air quality and comfort. Heat pumps or thermal solar panels produce heat thanks to renewable energies. The blending of the electrical, plumbing and heating sectors is one of the keys to this evolution. In 2015, the acquisition of Sofinther strengthened Rexel’s multi-energy expertise.

A renown specialist in the wind industry

Gexpro Services, one of the Group’s American subsidiaries, is a specialist in procurement and logistics for wind turbine manufacturers.

In the wind sector, Rexel offers procurement, supply management and provision of products for the assembly line. Its range covers electrical components, cables and all other necessary elements for manufacturing turbines or operating wind parks. One of its American subsidiaries, Gexpro Services, has become the worldwide specialist in procurement and logistics for wind turbine manufacturers. Every turbine needs thousands of electrical and mechanical parts and Gexpro Services can supply 80% of components, as well as made-to-order kits.
