Today, European solar EPC contractor GRS announced it established its new corporate office in Dallas, TX. In fact, this decision is part of the company’s strategy to advance its international expansion, particularly in countries where the industry holds a robust approach towards renewable energy.
GRS on searching new business opportunities in renewable-friendly countries
Particularly, in a press release, GRS noted this move comes as the company is searching for new business opportunities to consolidate its position on the American continent. Indeed, the company already has 21 plants in eight countries and four offices across the Americas. In this new cycle, the company estimates a growth of 2 GW installed over the next four years.
In this sense, José Miguel Plaza, Managing Director of GRS in the US, pointed out, “we are committed to returning to the United States, where we will take advantage of our knowledge of the country.”
Notably, the company has already built several photovoltaic plants in the country. As Mr. Plaza noted, GRS’s presence in the US was possible, mainly since the company relied on its strong industrial fabric to contribute to its sustainability and energy efficiency objectives.
Accordingly, the new location of the company’s offices will allow GRS to have a better understanding of and closer relationship with (its) clients. Mainly to cover all the needs of large-scale photovoltaic and energy storage projects. For instance, the EPC contractor will continue providing its services from engineering to operation and maintenance and PV acquisitions.
Contributing to the US sustainability and energy efficiency efforts
Moreover, GRS aims to further expand its PV and Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS) projects portfolio in the country. Since the US currently has over 292,065 MW of installed renewable capacity, according to IRENA, its sustainability and energy efficiency policies make it one of the strongest countries in terms of renewable influence and sustainability goals worldwide.
Therefore, Mr. Plaza added that the company has “the conviction and commitment to contribute to the NDC submitted by the United States to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.” Accordingly, the contractor will work with the aim to achieve a 100% clean economy and reach net-zero emissions by 2050.”

Finally, Mr. Plaza noted that “solar energy is more affordable, accessible and prevalent than ever in the US”. Thus, “technological advances and innovative solutions are needed to increase efficiency. Also, to reduce costs, and enable utilities to trust solar for baseload. Therefore, we believe it is critical to expand our business. Furthermore, to stay ahead of the curve to improve the profitability of each project”.
GRS is a company specializing in the construction of solar PV plants and their connection to the grid. The company already holds a considerable international projection and operates on five continents. Recently, the company reached 2.5 GW of installed power worldwide and has 1.5 GW in development.
Indeed, GRS is a Grupo Gransolar company, a 15-year vertically integrated platform for photovoltaic and energy storage. Accordingly, the businesses that make up the Group cover almost all the solar photovoltaic and storage value chain fields.
