RWE is a key player in the Italian renewables market. With our extensive experience we operate 15 onshore wind farms with a total installed capacity of approximately 500 megawatts, which can cover the annual demand of around 400,000 households. In addition, two new onshore wind farms, with a total installed capacity of 108 megawatts, are scheduled to be commissioned by mid-2025.
In Europe, Italy is one of the most promising growth markets for RWE. By 2030, our goal is to reach 1 GW of installed capacity from onshore wind, solar and storage plants. In addition, RWE is assessing the potential for offshore wind projects in the Mediterranean Sea.
RWE is involved in each step of the value chain, from the scouting of potential sites through to the dismantling or renewal of plants across the country. We pay special attention to the quality of our work throughout the process. We involve all stakeholders very early on in each development and always monitor local acceptance, environmental compensation and mitigations.
There are now more than 120 experienced RWE employees across RWE Renewables Italia S.r.l and RWE Wind Service Italia S.r.l., working both locally and globally. Our team comprises skilled project managers, project engineers, and technicians, as well as many other experts in different fields as RWE creates jobs within the local economy during each phase of any project.
