Created in 2002 and 2003, Poweo and Direct Energie have actively participated in the opening of electricity and gas market in France.
The important development of both companies was based on technical expertise as well as the high quality of their customer service and their ability to innovate. Both groups took the strategic decision of integration, from generation and electricity & gas supply, to personalised services in the household.
The applicability of the NOME law in 2011 (Nouvelle Organisation du Marché de l’Electricité) created a stable framework for the actors belonging to the sector.
In this context, both groups merged on July 11th 2012, in order to create the 3rd player for electricity and gas in France, weighing over 1 million customers.
