• The new plants will add around 193 MW to the renewable company’s installed capacity in Brazil;
• In 2014, EGP’s total installed wind power capacity will amount to, approximately, 283 MW, in addition to the 93 MW in hydroelectric power it already operates in the Latin American country;
• A total of 330 million euros will be invested to build the three wind farms.

The Curva dos Ventos wind farm is located in the inner part of Bahia, where EGP is completing construction of Cristal, Primavera and Sao Judas, its first wind farms in Brazil.
The new plant, which will have an installed capacity exceeding 56 MW, will bring the total installed capacity in that Brazilian state to over 146 MW when added to the approximate 90 MW of capacity for the three plants in construction.

Fontes dos Ventos and Modelo will be EGP’s first wind farms in the states of Pernambuco and Rio Grande do Norte, and will provide an installed capacity of about 80 MW and over 56 MW, respectively.

The three wind projects, which will require a total investment of 330 million euros, will provide energy to both the regulated and the free market under a long-term power purchase agreement (PPA) that the Company was awarded in the “Brazilian New Energy” public tender in 2011.

The new wind farms are located in areas characterized by high wind resources and a load factor of around 45%, among the highest in the world.
Once up and running, the wind farms will be able to generate up to more than 770 million kWh per year, avoiding about 350 tonnes of CO2 emissions each year.

Brazil is among the world leaders in renewable energy generation thanks to its approximately 98,000 MW in installed capacity in the sector, corresponding to around 85% of that country’s total installed capacity.

Enel Green Power (enel.com) is the Enel Group company fully dedicated to the development and management of renewable energy sources at the international level, with operations in Europe and the Americas. The company generated 25 billion kWh in 2012 from water, sun, wind and the Earth’s heat - enough to meet the energy needs of more than 10 million households and avoid the emission of over 18 million tonnes of CO2 into the atmosphere. Enel Green Power is a world leader in the sector thanks to its well-balanced generation mix, providing generation volumes well over the sector average. The Company has an installed capacity of more than 8,000 MW from a mix of sources including wind, solar, hydroelectric, geothermal, and biomass. Currently, EGP has over 700 operational plants in 16 countries in Europe and the Americas.

In Latin America, Enel Green Power runs renewable energy plants in Mexico, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Panama, Chile and Brazil for a total installed capacity of 990 MW as of today. In the wind sector, the company is currently building wind farms in Brazil for a total capacity of around 283 MW and has 24 MW installed wind capacity in Costa Rica, 144 MW in Mexico and 90 MW installed in Chile, where the company is also constructing the 90 MW “Valle de los Vientos” wind farm. With its century-long experience in the field of geothermal energy, Enel Green Power is developing new opportunities in this sector. In Chile, in particular, the company is exploring several concessions for a potential capacity exceeding 100 MW.
