Located in the Viterbo province, the portfolio is expected to be operational in Q1 2024. 

“We expect the Italian power purchase agreement market to evolve rapidly, bringing efficiencies and energy predictability to customers,” said Carlos Domenech, CEO of Enfinity Global. 

The latest power purchase agreement is the following step of Enfinity Global’s announcement in December 2022, as it closed the project financing worth €142 million ($154.6 million) for the construction of this portfolio. 

The financing was delivered in two tranches from Santander Corporate and Investment Banking and BayernLB to cover two projects totalling 72MW capacity, and a third tranche that also included Japanese finance company Nomura for a 40MW facility. In addition, the financing included €85 million (US$90 million) of non-recourse senior debt financing and €57 million (US$60 million) of VAT financing.

Currently, Enfinity Global owns 2.3GW of projects in Italy in the pipeline, including 430MW of fully permitted projects that will start construction in the coming months. It also boasts an existing portfolio of over 7GW of power plants in operation, under construction and in different stages of development in different energy markets. 

“With Italy being one of our core markets, we are very enthused to see our company breaking ground in the private power purchase agreement market, together with our partner Statkraft. Our energy management team will keep optimising our energy sales while bringing renewable energy closer and closer to the final customers,” said Julio Fournier Fisas, chief growth officer of Enfinity Global.

This special webinar will look at one of the most important changes impacting PV manufacturing today; how to establish and sustain new facilities around the world. For more than two decades, policy-makers have grappled with the challenges of nurturing domestic manufacturing sectors. Many countries have tried to create domestic sectors: Japan, Taiwan, South Korea, India, Europe and the U.S. But success stories have been rare. Mistakes seem to be repeated. And all the while, Chinese dominance of the industry has only increased. However, in the past 2-3 years, new drivers have emerged that suggest the dream of a global PV manufacturing ecosystem could be a reality. Join us as we shed light on this.
