Subsidiary of the well-known oil major, TotalEnergies is the largest alternative supplier in France, with already over 4 million customers. Offering both electricity and gas for residential and business customers, TotalEnergies is the main competitor for historical suppliers EDF and Engie.

TotalEnergies in 2021 In April 2021, the Total group announced that it had reached a historic milestone for TotalEnergies with 5 million customers in France (professionals and individuals). It aims for a 15% market share by 2025, compared to 10% today.

About TotalEnergies


TotalEnergies was formed in 2019 when the energy providers Total Spring and Direct Energie came together following their fusion. The company sells gas and electricity contracts to businesses and residential customers alike. Today, Total Energies' customers benefit from the expertise of two major players in the energy sector in France, and their fusion has made this new energy provider the largest alternative energy supplier in France.

Somewhat like Free Mobile in the French telecommunications market, Total Energies has positioned itself based on its ability to offer some of the lowest energy prices on the French market. Low overhead costs and strategic procurement procedures have enabled it to guarantee prices that are lower than the regulated tariffs (Tarif Bleu).

Total Energies energy supply comes from a combination of its own generation production as well as procurement on the wholesale market. The company operates natural gas-fired power plants, as well as several hydroelectric generation facilities.

What happens for former Direct Energie clients?The creation of Total Direct Energie has no impact on the offers, tariffs and T&Cs for ex-Direct Energie customers. You don't have to do or change anything to your contract.

Tariffs for the Total Energies Green Offer


Total Energies offers green electricity via a certification of origin system ("Garanties d'Origine"). How this works is that the company buys electricity on the energy market, and simultaneously will invest in equivalent warranties of origin which are delivered to green producers.

Total Energies guarantees that all the certifications it purchases are of French origin and from hydroelectric, wind, and biomass sources. By doing so, the supplier is, as other green energy providers in France, striving to encourage and finance a more renewable energy consumption in the country.

Total Energies offers its clients a fixed tariff for its green electricity, along with comprehensive customer service.

Here is how much you will be paying for this offer, for electricity and gas.
