London, February 22nd, 2024 – NextEnergy Group’s Chief Investment Officer, Aldo Beolchini spoke with Quotidiano Energia on how NextEnergy Capital, WiseEnergy and Starlight are evolving, focusing more specifically on the Group’s activities in Italy.

Aldo Beolchini, Chief Investment Officer, NextEnergy Group, said: “In Italy, we have a pipeline of approximately 680 MW, focusing on innovative solutions such as agrivoltaics. This approach respects the territory and supports farmers by reducing both energy and food dependence. NextEnergy has launched the “Terra del Sole” project in Giugliano in Campania, which has already received national approval (Via nazionale). In collaboration with Legambiente and Coldiretti, the project combines 86 MW, plus 23 MW of Bess (Battery Energy Storage System), integrated with agricultural activities.

Another of our PV projects, in Friuli Venezia Giulia, involves the restoration of a biodiversity corridor between two ancient forests separated by intensive agricultural activity.We are also involved in nature conservation and biodiversity projects with the Lombardy region, and in regenerative agriculture initiatives to replace petroleum-based chemical inputs with organic ones.”
