Our goal: consolidating the photovoltaic market by managing plants with an industrial approach.

About Us

We are the leading operator in the photovoltaic sector in Italy. We are an equal joint venture between Enel Green Power and F2i.

We encompass all the know-how of shareholders which have long been operating in the photovoltaic sector in Italy: for several years Enel Green Power has been building and managing photovoltaic plants in Italy and around the world; in 2009, F2i established Holding Fotovoltaica S.p.A.

We always operate as the market leader and the leading player in consolidating the photovoltaic sector in Italy.  We act as the aggregator on the secondary photovoltaic market. We offer opportunities to small and medium owners of photovoltaic plants. We have an industrial approach based on efficiency improvement and technological evolution of the sector.

Our first portfolio consisted of 65 plants in 12 different regions. Now it includes 124 plants with an installed capacity of about 400 MW in Italy.

Our shareholders
  • F2i is the largest closed-end Italian fund dedicated to investments in the infrastructure sector. Since 2009 it has been operating in the photovoltaic sector.
  • Enel Green Power is the Enel Group business line that is entirely dedicated to developing and managing energy production from renewable sources worldwide; it is located in Europe, the Americas, Asia, Africa and Oceania.

Our Mission

We produce energy from renewable sources. The sector is able to meet simultaneously the requirements of CO2 production reduction, the security of Italian energy supply and the increase of industrial competitiveness by developing and using frequent technological innovations. The renewable energy sector, especially the photovoltaic sector, is constantly growing and is undergoing a deep transformation process. This is also shown by the Italian and European legislation. In Italy there is a significant market fragmentation. Therefore, market consolidation is necessary in order to reach the European and Italian climate goals. EF Solare Italia team’s mission is to act as an aggregator with an industrial approach based on assets management optimisation. We use innovative dedicated platforms to manage small-sized photovoltaic plants in a comprehensive manner.

At the operational level, EF Solare Italia’s strategy is based on three main axes:

  1. Plants acquisition. We leverage on the high market fragmentation and the availability of plants for sale;
  2. Operations and Performance improvement through technological development and growth. We strengthen synergies linked to economies of scale and asset management with a geographical approach. Moreover, we develop Asset Management and O&M models with an innovative approach based on specialized skills and the development of a managerial model based on Digital Energy and more efficient structure and resources;
  3. Financial optimisation of plants portfolio. We take advantage of the opportunities offered by growth and the use of alternative forms of financing.
