Matrix Renewables’ head of M&A, Iñigo Asensio, said the company had plans “to become a significant solar photovoltaic and energy storage player in Italy in the near term”.

“With this new co-development agreement for the Italian Market, we continue our geographical growth and portfolio diversification,” added Asensio.

Italy’s solar sector is currently up in arms after a government decision to clawback profits from renewables plants that are currently benefiting from high electricity prices.

Companies will be required to pay back a resulting increase in profits to the government until the end of 2022, as part of the measures announced last month.

Nonetheless, Italy has been the focus of a lot of solar investment recently. Just last week, Swiss fund manager SUSI Partners, through its Energy Transition Fund (SETF), launched a solar PV development platform in Italy that aims to deploy 500MW of utility-scale solar PV after identifying Italy as a key growth market.
