Enel Purchasing ERG Hydro Portfolio (Int'l., M&A)
Enel, ERG
Date: 2021-08-04
In Milan, Europe's largest utility Enel reports an agreement to purchase a 527 MW portfolio of hydroelectric assets from Italian renewable energy major ERG S.p.A. The €1 billion ($1.19 billion) deal is expected to close early in 2022.

Enel, Italy's dominant hydroelectric player with almost 12.5 GW of capacity, will fund the deal from cash flow and current debt lines.

ERG, one of Europe's leading wind power players, is reportedly selling the assets, along with some gas-fired power plants, to speed up the process to create a pure wind and solar player.

Met-Ed Sustainable Energy Fund
Date: 2021-08-02
In Reading, Pennsylvania, he Met-Ed Sustainable Energy Fund of Berks County Community Foundation reports it has awarded $85,000 in grants to three renewable and sustainable energy projects. Grant recipients include:
  • Colebrookdale Railroad Preservation Trust, $50,000 -- To create an off-the-grid education center – the Colebrookdale Children’s Educational Grove -- showcasing sustainable energy practices. Educational programs will be offered in partnership with Berks Nature and the YWCA Tri-County Area free of charge to Pennsylvania students.

  • Dickinson College, $25,000 to construct, study and demonstrate a commercial anaerobic digestion system for the generation of renewable electricity from agricultural and food processing wastes at a scale appropriate for an average Pennsylvania dairy farm. The Dickinson College Farm provides hands-on educational resources for students, faculty, and the community on topics of sustainable food production, renewable energy generation, and responsible land stewardship.

  • Berks History Center, $10,000 to implement energy-saving measures in the organization's building based on the results of a recently completed energy audit. The audit identified 10 energy conservation opportunities with the potential to save $10,000 per year in energy costs.

    The Metropolitan Edison Company Sustainable Energy Fund of Berks County Community Foundation and the Pennsylvania Electric Company Sustainable Energy Fund of the Community Foundation for the Alleghenies distribute grant funding and investments for a variety of projects within the territories originally served by the two electric companies. The two funds share an advisory committee and are known in the singular as the Met-Ed / Penelec Sustainable Energy Fund.

    Enel Group Plans Green Hydrogen Growth (Int'l. Report)
    Enel Group,Hydrogen Europe
    Date: 2020-11-30
    At last weeks European Hydrogen Forum, a gathering of industry leaders, policy-makers, government representatives and researchers, the Enel Group reported plans to grow its green hydrogen capacity to over 2 GW by 2030 and to integrate electrolyzers with renewable energy plants producing electricity for direct sale and ancillary services to support further renewable penetration in the grid, with green hydrogen also being sold to industrial customers.

    According to Enel Group CEO Francesco Starace, the company is developing green hydrogen projects in Spain, Chile and the United States. Starace noted the cement, fertilizer and chemical industries, as well as transport by sea or air cannot be fully electrified and need green hydrogen if we want to achieve a fully decarbonized society going forward. For these sectors, green hydrogen can truly be the answer to decarbonization. Technological development, however, is just in the initial phase and we have to accelerate its pace and study its evolution carefully in order to avoid mistakes in capital allocations and bets in solutions that need to be tested before large investments are put to work, Starace added.

    The European Hydrogen Forum was jointly organized by the European Commission's Directorate General for Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs (DG GROW) and the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU), in partnership with Hydrogen Europe and Hydrogen Europe Research.

    Pittsburgh Considers Marshall Plan for Appalachia (Ind. Report)
    Pittsburgh
    Date: 2020-11-13
    Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto is promoting a new "Marshall Plan for Middle America" that would transition the Appalachian region away from fossil fuels and toward greener sources of energy and increased energy efficiency. The plan calls for $600 billion in investments over 10 years in Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Ohio and Kentucky, to fund renewable and energy efficiency projects.

    The Appalachian region plan's lead author, Leslie Marshall, associate director of the University of Pittsburgh's Center for Sustainable Business, said the plan is aimed at trying to deal with a "confluence of crises" brought on by the region's reliance on fossil fuels and the treat of climate change.

    The plan, which shares many of the goals of the Green New Deal, does not specify where the money will come from but suggests it could be funded through a mix of tax breaks, public-private partnerships, and alliances between labor, environmental, and academic institutions.

    Research for the project received financial support from the Enel Foundation, which is run by Enel, an Italian energy company with significant renewable energy investments. (Source: State Impact Pennsylvania, The Allegheny Front, 13 Nov., 2020)

    Schneider Electric eyeing Greece’s EUR 1.5 billion smart meter project
    Schneider Electric
    Date: 2019-06-04
    Schneider Electric has contacted the Hellenic Electricity Distribution Network Operator (HEDNO) to express interest in the replacement of around 7.5 million conventional electricity meters with smart meters, The project to replace conventional electricity meters with smart meters, implemented by HEDNO, whose Greek acronym is DEDDIE, is worth €1.5 billion, the portal wrote. Schneider Electric, which is already cooperating with HEDNO on other projects, is now waiting for the Greek power grid operator to announce the details regarding tendering for the smart meter project, in which it will be participating, according to the report. According to the report, the scenarios on the table include the implementation of the project via private funds, through a public-private partnership (PPP), and by a strategic investor. The most likely scenario, presented in late April to the board of Public Power Corporation (PPC), envisages the creation of a subsidiary to which the existing analog meters will be passed on, and then the entry into that entity of a strategic investor with a 49% stake so as to ensure the financing of the project, the portal wrote.

    Replacing the analog meters with digital ones will allow for the management of energy both by the grid operator and by consumers, while efficiently dealing with the problem of electricity theft for good, according to the report.

    Schneider Electric recently installed an energy management system in the network of Italian power company Enel, which has led to savings of some 30%, the report adds. (Source: Schneider Electric, Balkan Green Energy News, 4 June, 2019)
