As part of the deal, Enerside has bought €3 million (US$3.1 million) worth of AGE’s shares in the JV, giving it a controlling stake of around 62%.

Enerside said that it is looking to consolidate its position in the Italian market, which it entered in January 2022 through acquiring a local portfolio. Its other prominent markets are Spain and Central/South America.

This week, Reden Solar agreed a €264 million (US$278 million) financing deal to build up to 255MW of PV across Italy. Fellow Spanish developer Iberdrola received US$160 million from the European Investment Bank to pursue a 400MW Italian PV portfolio in December. The same month, subsidiary of oil major Eni – Plenitude – expanded its Italian renewables footprint by acquiring native renewables company PLT.
