French state-controlled utility EDF said on Monday it plans to accelerate its roll-out of solar energy in France to help the fight against climate change.

EDF chief executive Jean-Bernard Levy said the utility will invest about 25 billion euros to develop 30 gigawatt of solar capacity in France between 2020 and 2035.

He added that a large part of these investments in solar will come from partners.

His comments come ahead of a climate summit in Paris on Tuesday.

“The acceleration of solar in France is crucial for reaching our climate targets,” said Antoine Cahuzac, the head of EDF’s renewables unit.
