New energy solutions platform from Enel X and Infracapital
A new joint venture has been created to develop cogeneration, trigeneration and energy efficiency solutions for commercial and industrial customers in Italy and abroad
Published on 24 December 2018
A new joint venture has launched on the energy scene. The partnership between Enel X and Infracapital, the infrastructure investment division of the British-based M&G Investments, will create a platform to develop energy efficiency projects for commercial and industrial customers in Italy and Europe. A virtual dimension based on an innovative model designed to bring to fruition the collaboration between a strategic partner and a financial partner.
The energy ecosystem is currently experiencing a phase of radical transition in which innovation and sustainability have become inseparable. Today, companies are prioritising initiatives to make resources and consumption more efficient, developing energy storage and increasing the proportion of zero-emissions vehicles in their company fleets: they are therefore playing an active role in building a cleaner future.
This new agreement will see the Enel Group’s innovation and digital solutions-dedicated division, Enel X, cede 11 cogeneration and trigeneration plants (for a total of 27.5 MW) from its Italian portfolio to Infracapital, the European investment fund owned by the Prudential Group, one of the world’s leading financial services providers. This partnership has huge potential in the area of Demand Response programmes, not merely through the optimisation of the use of Combined Heat and Power (CHP) infrastructure but also through investment in new non-traditional energy opportunities. Thanks to the joint venture, in fact, Enel X and Infracapital will be able to capitalise on alternative energy efficiency technologies, distributed generation, energy storage and EV charging networks. The Fund will take an 80% stake that will allow Enel X to strengthen its technological experience and leadership position in the creation of European infrastructure projects in the energy efficiency and co-generation sectors in Italy and abroad.
Thanks to this partnership we are continuing our growth strategy in the sector of advanced energy solutions in Italy and ensuring the support of one of the leading financial partners in the world. Our goal is to expand this business model on a global level by offering all potential customers technologically-leading-edge services tailored to their needs
