Qair is an Independent Power Producer (IPP), operating 860 MW of power generation assets exclusively from renewable sources. The group is in the construction and financing phase for 800 MW and is also developing 16 GW of assets for future deployment in the heart of the 20 territories in which it operates.

For more than 30 years, the company has relied on the historical know-how of its experts and the vision of its principal shareholder, Jean-Marc Bouchet. This long experience is based on the development and operation of more than 600 MW of renewable capacities in France, representing more than one billion euros of investment.

Thanks to its worldwide network in Africa, South-East Asia, South America and Europe, Qair continues its global, reasoned and “multi-local” development. This flexible approach enables it to aim for the commissioning of 1 GW of assets in 2022.

Message from the Founder

Jean-Marc Bouchet​


The name Qair is common to all our onshore and offshore wind, solar, hydro, waste-to-energy and green hydrogen activities, and expresses the unity of our group across the 16 countries in which we develop projects.

Qair proudly recalls our roots (“Qa“), unites our international presence (“i“), and affirms our commitment to renewable energy (“r”). It thus better reflects the reality of what we have been since the group’s creation more than 30 years ago. Finally, this name reflects the great times we are living in, full of promises and challenges to ensure that our growth is sustainable, our progress sustainable and that our development is not to the detriment of future generations. Since its inception, the group has taken the measure of the environmental challenges and has been fully committed to actively participating in the ecological transition underway and to accelerating, in line with it, the environmental revolution that I sincerely hope for.

« It is our duty towards future generations to hold our course as a committed player in the environmental revolution !  »
