“Evolutions in technology present new possibilities, offering value to those who do not fear them. Over the last three years we have been working hard to deliver against the new Open Power strategic vision for the Group. This strategy calls upon us to open energy to new uses, new ways of managing energy for people, and new technologies, amongst many other things. This is the basis upon which we are moving forward with the execution of our new strategic plan, and in particular in helping to deliver against our two key value drivers, Customer Focus and Digitisation. The launch of the E-Solutions global business line therefore represents an important, strategic step forward for Enel. We are working on the integration of the business alongside the more traditional aspects of the power industry value chain, and we are excited about exploring this new world of opportunities”
E-Solutions will operate globally in all markets where Enel already has an operational presence, as well as potentially also leading the Group into new geographies.
Enel Green Power, which manages the Group’s portfolio of 38GW of renewable generation assets, and remains a central pillar of the Group’s growth strategy, will be headed by Antonio Cammisecra, who in his former role as head of the Business Development team of EGP, was the architect behind the international growth of the business worldwide. Enel Green Power closed out a record 2016, delivering 2,018 MW of built capacity over the year, more than double the 2015 result when over 1,000 MW of built capacity was brought online. EGP has a 2017-2019 project pipeline of 6,700 MW of new built capacity.
