OPEN Opportunities in Envirotech (OPEN) now offers investors the opportunity to invest in pendular wind turbines, based upon an innovative and patented technology. The investment is offered as a so called “Direct Investment”, meaning that the investor holds direct ownership in a specific wind turbine. As a result, the investment will be backed by the asset itself, i.e. the wind turbine.
The investment in the wind turbine is a “turnkey”investment, and as such all the costs for the installation, commissioning and connection to the grid, are included in the investment. The turbines will be installed in Italy and the energy produced will be sold to the grid and is underpinned through a Feed-in Tariff for 20 years.
Italy’s total installed wind capacity reached 8,144 MW by the end of 2012. The country has the fourth-largest installed wind capacity in the European Union (European Wind Energy Association (EWEA), 2013). In addition, installation of small wind turbines is growing rapidly in Italy since the introduction of Feed-in Tariffs in 2008, according to the Department of Engineering at Milan’s Polytechnical University. Nevertheless, in absolute terms, installed capacity of small wind turbines in Italy remains a fraction of that of commercial-scale turbines. In 2012, just 0.2% of the wind generating capacity in the country came from small wind installations.
