Enel Green Power is among the signatories of the Sustainable Wind Power Renewal Paper. The agreement aims at achieving four objectives: enhancing wind as a resource at sites that are already operational; making best use of the land and maximising the use of existing infrastructures; limiting and reducing environmental impact during all phases of the process; maintaining continuity in relations with the land, bodies and local communities
On November 3 in Rimini (Italy), during the event Key Energy, a round table was held involving bodies and operators of the renewables sector, after which the Sustainable Wind Power Renewal Paper was signed. The Head of Operation & Maintenance HWS Paolo Romanacci attended in representation of Enel Green Power.
The Sustainable Wind Power Renewal Paper is a simple and practical document with which the main sector operators aim to identify operational regulations, application criteria, standards and best practices useful in order to create together a defining sustainability path for these initiatives.
The agreement aims at achieving four objectives:
In October 2014 the European Council established a binding EU target for domestic greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 of 40% relative to 1990 levels and established that by 2030 at least 27% of Europe’s energy consumption should be generated from renewable sources. If Italy wishes to respect its emissions reduction commitments and energy supply security targets, while also limiting its energy dependence from abroad, it will have to continue investing in renewables, while defining clear rules for the construction of green generation plants at competitive costs.
