DRIVING THE TRANSFORMATION

< back to previous page

Sustainability always means striking a balance between economic, ecological and social aspects. Nowhere is this as clear and important as it is in the field of renewable energies. They play a significant role in contemporary climate and energy policy.

Investing in new lead markets

Foresight, creative determination and courage are characteristic of the attitude with which we invest in pioneering firms in the lead markets for renewable energies. We intend to play a leading role in financing and developing innovation and growth in renewable energies. Our goal is to promote intelligent solutions that contribute to the responsible use of resources and offer economically sustainable operations while at the same time safeguarding the quality of life for future generations.

In view of this, we focus our investment on high-performance solar plants and wind turbines, working exclusively with the components of absolute premium manufacturers.

04 | Energy | Photovoltaic plant Santarém, Portugal
Photovoltaic plant Santarém, Portugal

The 22.9 MWp solar park in the western part of the country, north of the capital Lisbon, is expected to produce 61,600 MWh of green solar power annually from the 36,100 solar modules. In the years to come, this energy will be able to supply around 8,800 four-person households with electricity while saving up to 16,000 tons of CO2 a year. This project also requires WIRTGEN INVEST to feed the power in directly at the high-voltage level.
