Enel Green Power (EGP) has conveyed that it has set a new record in 2019 by building around 3,029 MW of new renewable capacity globally, around 190 MW more (+6.5 percent) than it did in 2018.
“We have beaten our yearly renewable capacity construction record thanks to the relentless work and dedication of our colleagues around the world,” said Antonio Cammisecra, CEO of Enel Green Power.
“This achievement sets a new benchmark for the whole sector, once again confirming our global leadership in the green energy business. Looking ahead, we will challenge ourselves with the aim to continuously set new records, in line with the Enel Group’s 2020-2022 Strategic Plan which envisages a yearly average new capacity addition of 4.7 GW over the Plan period.”
The new renewable capacity built by EGP in 2019 includes around 47 facilities, mainly wind (1,813 MW) and solar (1,193 MW). In terms of geographies, this new capacity is distributed as follows:
With the over 3 GW built in 2019, EGP now manages around 46 GW of total capacity, confirming it as the largest private renewable player at the global level. This new capacity is set to generate around 9.3 TWh in a year of full operation, avoiding the annual emission of 5.85 million tons of CO2 into the atmosphere, contributing to the Enel Group’s goal of generating around 57 percent of its production from renewable sources in 2022.
The firm revealed that it managed to beat this record also through the support of digital tools for design and site supervision, leveraging on an innovative approach that includes testing of robots for automatized installation of PV panels and cables, as well as the use of drones and state-of-the-art solar tracking systems.
This milestone confirms the firms’ commitment to continue increasing its renewable footprint, as also highlighted in its 2020-2022 Strategic Plan, which foresees adding 14.1 GW of renewable capacity in the period to reach around 60 GW by 2022.
