Italian Embassy in Brasilia Powered by Solar Energy

The Italian Embassy in Brasilia takes the credit of being the first European Embassy to use renewable sources for its energy needs, by installing a 50 kW solar energy PV system on its roof. 405 PV solar modules have been installed with the help of Enel Green Power.

According to Enrique de las Morenas, General Manager of Enel Green Power in Brazil, they were proud and honored to contribute to the development of the first ever green embassy in Brasilia.

This project was part of Enel Green Power’s endeavors in the Latin American region. Enel has also obtained permitting and authorization processes for building and operating three wind energy projects in Brazil totaling up to 90 MW, having successfully won the last reserve auction last year in the month of August 2010.

Enel Green Power established in 2008 December, is dedicated to managing and developing renewable energy sources globally, with a huge presence in America and Europe. It caters to the energy requirements of 786.5 million families and contributes to reducing the carbon footprint by almost 15 tons of CO2 on a yearly basis. It has 618 plants operating all over the world with a total installed capacity of 4500 MW from biomass, wind, hydroelectric water flow, solar and geothermal energy sources.
