The company’s goal is to become a market leader in the small scale hydroelectric power production by enlarging its plant portfolio, increasing its market share of energy production and expanding its presence in the North and South of Italy.
The key factors to gain a competitive advantage in the mini-hydroelectric industry are the growth pace and the balance between greenfield and brownfield projects. The former has higher return and requires loger turns to be developed, the latter deliveres lower return with abundant predictable cashflows.
Hydrowatt growth strategy is based upon the acquisition of operating plants and in-house development of new hydro opportunities.
The full implementation of this strategy will generate significant economies of scale and will increase the company’s visibility among the banking system, the financial intermediaries and other stakeholders.
