SHER has been actively involved in the production of renewable energy since 2005. Our investment contributes to sustainable development in the context of climate change. We offer our customers a complete planning and design service for hydropower and solar photovoltaic development.


Planning and perspectives for renewable energies

Our team has an extensive experience in strategic planning and renewable energy potential studies, for both hydro and solar. The resulting atlases are of great interest for the development of projects based on sustainable energy solutions.

Comprehensive expertise in hydro-electrical and solar development 

We have designed a multitude of hydroelectric schemes, from the technical, socio-economic and environmental point of view, enabling us to meet the most demanding requirements. Our hydropower projects range up to 20 MW, exploiting a wide range of flows, heads and turbine types (Francis, Pelton, Kaplan, Bulb, etc).


Integrated engineering approach 

Our approach is to offer a wide range of services based on our locations in Europe and Africa with the expertise of the Artelia Group. Through our values, we support our clients, both public and private, by transferring skills and sharing of experience. We work in partnership with stakeholders throughout the project cycle.
