      EDPR inaugurates a new wind farm in Italy

      Friday16, September 2022

      The inauguration ceremony was attended by EDPR CEO Miguel Stilwell d'Andrade, together with EDPR COO for Europe and Latam Duarte Bello, and EDPR Italy General Manager Roberto Pasqua.

      The undertaking reflects EDPR's commitment to the energy transition and energy independence of Italy and Europe.

      The facility, which is situated in the center of Basilicata, has a total capacity of 35 MW and produces 79GWh annually. With the addition of the Craco and Stigliano wind farm, EDPR has installed a total capacity of 463 MW in Italy.

      EDP Renewables (Euronext: EDPR), the world's fourth largest renewable energy producer, today inaugurated the Craco and Stigliano wind farm in Basilicata, Italy.

      The Craco and Stigliano facility operates 10 turbines, each with a capacity of 3.5 MW, adding up to a total capacity of 35MW. The wind farm will be able to produce 79GWh/year, saving 37,250 tons per year of CO2 emissions, and will supply energy to 26,280 households. In addition to the wind farm, EDPR also built the grid connection infrastructure to which the farm was connected at the end of August. With this new facility, EDPR has installed a total capacity of 463 MW in Italy.

      Speaking at the inauguration Miguel Stilwell d'Andrade, EDPR CEO, stated "The energy crisis that Europe is currently experiencing, and the increasingly urgent energy independence, leads us to reinforce our commitment to sourcing and producing energy from renewable sources. With the inauguration of this new wind farm EDP is proudly contributing to making Italy greener and more energy independent."

      Showing the involvement of local institutions and communities, the ceremony was attended by Francesco Micucci, Mayor of Stigliano and Vincenzo Lacopeta, Mayor of Craco who said "We are proud to contribute as a community to respond to a great cause of national interest. This plant stands as clear proof of the dedication of our region to environmental defense and sustainability."

      Present at the event were Duarte Bello, EDPR's Chief Operating Officer for Europe and Latam, and Roberto Pasqua, General Manager of EDPR Italy, as well as a representation of students from local primary schools.

      The Craco and Stigliano wind farm further strengthens the link between EDPR and the Italian territories. The company is present with numerous wind farms in the country, and recently launched the crowdfunding campaign "Energy together. The renewable energy tour in Italy" to offer Italian citizens the opportunity to be part of the energy transition, recognizing and rewarding the link with the territories.

      EDPR is also committed to developing training programs for young people to take advantage of the job opportunities offered by the presence of wind farms in the territory.
