Electric utility ENGIE was created out of the privatization of various Belgian and French public utilities. It operates major nuclear power plants in Belgium that routinely report 'unforeseen' problems. The plants were supposed to be phased out in 2025, but were extended for 10 years as a result of the war in Ukraine.
The company used to have a number of coal power plants in Germany and the Netherlands which it has sold to Riverstone Holdings in order to exit fossil fuels, but the plants are still being operated as normal. It has also sold off coal plants in Brazil and Morocco. In Chile, ENGIE is converting its Andina and Hornitos coal plants to wood burning, but activists note that this action is simply replacing one problem with another.
ENGIE built the Jirau dam on the Madeira River in the state of Rondônia, close to Brazil's border with Bolivia. The dam was blamed for deforestation, loss of fisheries and catastrophic floods in 2014. In Morocco, ENGIE is building a desalinization plant in the city of Dakhla as well as the Foum El Oued wind farm and the Aftissat wind farms in occupied Western Sahara territory. In Mexico, Engie has been accused of land and resource grabbing for a solar project in Calpulalpan, Tlaxcala, Mexico.
