NEOEN trusts QOS Energy’s Monitoring Platform for the Largest Solar PV Plant in Europe


NEOEN trusts QOS Energy to provide the data management platform for utility-scale solar PV plant, located in Cestas near Bordeaux (France). Made up of almost 1,000,000 solar panels, the CESTAS plant has a capacity of 300 MWp and has been commissioned in October 2015.

The largest solar plant in Europe produces annually 350 GWh, the equivalent to the residential electricity consumption of Bordeaux (249,000 inhabitants).




“QOS Energy offers a real advantage given that their energy monitoring solution is multi-energy (solar, wind, biomass,etc. ) and compatible with any type of equipment. It is fully configurable allowing us to align it to our business needs.”
