By combining our deep global expertise in energy markets with Renera’s specialist local knowledge we will deliver safe, secure and reliable energy storage solutions that advance Italy’s clean energy transition.”

Lars Konersmann, CEO of Renera Energy Italy added: “In order to implement the European energy transition as fast as possible, we are excited to partner with Eku Energy to create and develop impactful projects. Battery storage is the perfect complement for renewable energy production. Combining it with our Solar Power Plant pipeline we are moving Italy an important step ahead on the way to a completely renewable energy supply.”
