TerniEnergia aims to become the first Italian independent “smart energy company”, active in the fields of renewable energy, energy efficiency, waste and energy management, thanks to the new business model and the integration into the Group of Free Energia.

Confirmed the evolution of the organizational structure, which will be based on four functional business lines: Technical Services, Cleantech, Energy Management and Energy saving, with the completion of the merger of Lucos Alternative Energies in TerniEnergia.

The new plan “Fast on the smart energy road” bases its assumptions of industrial character of:

– Backlog of orders in photovoltaics already acquired and currently being acquired abroad;

– Increase of the energy management business in Italy, thanks to the expansion of the customers of Free Energia, most of which are recurring and loyal;

– Development of relevant business opportunities “cross-selling” in the areas of energy efficiency (fast-growing) and the sale of energy;

– Strong business diversification of TerniEnergia in ant-cyclical sectors and completion of the “core” of the group along the entire energy value chain, from design works up to post-sale advanced services;

– Scouting for the identification of potential M&A operations to promote growth through acquisitions in the Gas & Power, also internationally;

– Looking for possible partnerships in PV EPC, in order to assess the possibility of setting up an “Italian leader” industrial platform for the achievement of large contracts abroad;

– Optimization of the conditions of profitability of production plants from renewable energy, including through the sale of sustainable and traced vegetable oil;

– Entry into the field of development and industrial production of smart solutions and technologies for energy efficiency and cleantech.

From the strategic point of view, TerniEnergia expects to optimize the financial structure to operational needs, leveraging the power produced to reduce the weight of the energy acquired on the market for energy management activities, increasing the possibility of issuing corporate guarantees, facilitating relations with the credit, thanks to the recovery of business with high revenue generation in Italy.

The new business plan, finally, provides for the strengthening of the buy-back program to provide the Company with an equity portfolio to be used for any extraordinary transactions and the proposal of the increased voting rights.
