Engie looked at buying Direct Energie but decided against it -CEO Kocher PARIS: Engie CEO Isabelle Kocher said the utility had considered buying independent power retailer Direct Energie but decided against it.

“We knew they were going to sell at some point … but we did not need to buy an entry ticket into the French power market, we are already there,” she said.

French oil major Total bought Direct Energie last week in a deal that will make it a major challenger to market leader EDF.
