Garsten, 14th of October 2021. – In 2017, the photovoltaic experts CCE Group from Austria and enernovum from Germany joined forces and founded a joint venture in Italy. To date, they have been pursuing the goal of developing so-called "grid parity" projects. With financing from Kommunalkredit Austria AG amounting to 12 million euros, projects with a total nominal output of around 600 MWp can now be fully developed in the coming years. All projects are located in central and southern Italy and therefor in one of the sunniest regions of Europe.
Difficult investments for project development
The signing of the contract was a special achievement for the two managing directors Martin Dürnberger (CCE Group) and Jörg Menyesch (enernovum). "Despite the massive trend towards renewable energies, it is still challenging to find investors for project development. We are now all the happier about the closing of the financing with Kommunalkredit," the two managing directors report.
A confident look into the future
In total, CCE Group and enernovum currently own a portfolio of project rights which equates to greater than 1.2 gigawatt peak in Italy. Investments in the development phase of projects make the actual construction of photovoltaic power plants possible. In order to achieve the EU's ambitious climate targets, there are many investors needed whom, like Kommunalkredit Austria AG, are ready to support environmentally friendly technology as early as in the development phase. Only in this way can the expansion of renewable energies to be driven forward.
