Our vision is to dynamically combine the benefits of green energy to the environment with strong investment returns to deliver a virtuous cycle for all parties involved.
Alternus Energy aims to become a leading independent power producer in green energy, by owning and operating a global network of distributed and connected green energy power plants, in countries where the combination of economic, environmental and political policies are optimized and supportive for long term solar growth, to cater for the ever growing need for clean renewable energy.
ALTN currently own and operate 3MW of ground and rooftop Solar PV Parks in Italy with 5MW under exclusivity contracts and ready to close in Q2 2019. The overall focus is to ramp up the acquisition of parks to 50MW in Italy in 2019. All parks benefit from Italian government Feed-in-Tariff revenues guaranteed for 20 years from initial operating year.
ALTN expanded operations to Germany in 2018, the primary focus being the acquisition and development of small to medium size utility scale rooftop and ground mounted Solar PV Parks. This includes commercial and industrial size rooftop projects of less than 750KW of solar power per project. ALTN have partnered with local developers and EPC operators to develop and build a minimum of 200MW of rooftop and ground mounted Solar PV Parks over the next 3 years with 10MW now complete.
All parks will benefit from German government Feed-in-Tariff revenues guaranteed for 20 years from initial operating year. Installations that are less than 750KW in size are automatically approved for the 20 year FiT incentives but also at a pre-determined FiT rate rather than an auction process.
ALTN currently own and operate 2 x Solar PV Parks in Romania with a total installed power capacity of 6.1MW. The company is looking to expand operations in Romania in 2019.
