The project involves the installation near a network node of a latest generation energy storage system with a total capacity of approximately 120 MW and 480MWh energy that can be stored in charge and discharge cycles. GreenGo therefore extends its BESS portfolio to approximately 400 MW, of which 250 MW is in the advanced authorization phase.

WFW supported GreenGo in the acquisition as legal advisor. REA, as technical advisor, oversaw the technical and authorization due diligence

GreenGo, founded in 2018 as a startup, is part of the Fimm srl group (controlled by Giuseppe Mastropieri ), which also includes Rea srl , which provides M&A consultancy, financing and PPA structuring services for greenfield and brownfield projects, and Rem srl , which provides technical and commercial management for utility scale plant operational services. As mentioned, the startup is owned by the French fund Eiffel Essentiel, which in 2020 had invested 7 million euros of equity, acquiring 13.85%. Subsequently, at the end of July 2023, the company obtained a convertible shareholder loan (equity bridge) of up to 15 million euros again from Eiffel.

GreenGo, which today has 50 employees and collaborators, in addition to exclusive agents on the national territory, closed 2022 with 4.4 million euros in revenues, an ebitda of approximately 330 thousand euros and net liquidity of over 515 thousand euros, compared to a net worth of 10.4 million.

To date, GreenGo’s pipeline has reached 1.7 GW, with a total of 0.9 GW renewable projects under approval and over 210 MW already approved/RTB

The announcement follows the obtaining last December 2023 of the Single Authorization for the construction of the “Soparita” advanced agrivoltaic plant in the municipality of Vizzini (Catania). The project, with a nominal power of 8.5 MW , represents the first plant entirely developed and managed by GreenGo as an IPP and among the first application cases of advanced agrivoltaics in Italy.

Since September 2023 GreenGo has resided in the new green hub S/PARK – Sustainability Workplace in Bologna. The structure, desired and designed by Fimm, represents a significant redevelopment of an architectural site of artistic and urban significance and stands as a point of reference for the Italian green economy, hosting the group’s operational realities and opening up to companies, professionals, institutions and citizenship.

Lorenzo Nardon, Head of Finance and m&a of GreenGo, commented on the acquisition of the new project: “With the new BESS plant in Calabria we strengthen our ability to integrate stand-alone BESS solutions by intervening in a region where it is still to be fill the gap of storage systems in development compared to the needs of the national electricity system.

Legislative Decree 210/21 opens up new opportunities for the sector and we are ready to seize them, benefiting from optimal connections on existing Terna electricity stations and actively participating in the next MACSE auctions.
