Italy's Enel Green Power Expands from Wind to Solar

The news of Enel’s planned foray into concentrated solar power follows close upon the official opening ceremony of a 160-MW capacity photovoltaic plant in Catania , a joint venture between the company, Sharp and STMicroelectronics.

To make sure that happens, Enel and Sharp have paired up to develop more than 500 MW of solar installations by 2016, which will of course use photovoltaic panels made in the Catania plant and employ Enel’s franchise network of more than 570 installers. One of the first candidates could be the plant itself, with a planned 1 MW rooftop solar array using panels made on-site.
