RTR, AN ITALIAN LEADER

RTR is Italy and Europe's largest solar energy producer. Supported by its shareholder Terra Firma, RTR quickly built the largest solar portfolio in Italy, displaying leadership and management capabilities at the highest levels.

RTR's growth strategy is based on acquiring high-quality assets from the industry's leading operators and expertly managing them. RTR's strategy for development positions it as a key player in the European renewable energy sector.

RTR operates at the cutting edge of technological innovation, to build an environmentally friendly and socially sustainable energy future.

CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

RTR's core values include a vision based on corporate social responsibility.

As you may read in our downloadable brochure, RTR's commitment to the environment, social well-being, community partnership and meritocracy are corporate priorities, along with the health and safety of our employees and personnel working in our plants. RTR is committed to the sustainable development of the areas in which it operates and favors the promotion of a widespread culture of renewable energy with a low environmental impact.

We pay the utmost attention to the environment: energy production from RTR's photovoltaic plants kept 228,000 tons of CO2 from being dumped into the atmosphere, equivalent to the amount absorbed by 9.1 million trees.

RTR'S HISTORY

Terra Firma created RTR in April 2011 when it acquired a portfolio of orphaned energy assets from Terna SpA, Italy's national grid operator. Following the initial acquisition of a portfolio of solar photovoltaic (PV) assets, Terra Firma built RTR from scratch into a world-class solar power company with state-of-the-art electricity generation and performance monitoring equipment.

Today RTR is the leading solar PV power generation business in Italy and in Europe.

Such an exciting company has attracted professionals with extensive specific expertise: if we were to add all of our team's experience together, RTR's staff have managed almost 1 GWp over the course of their careers.

RTR AND TECHNOLOGICAL INNOVATION

RTR is constantly testing new technology to improve the efficiency of its plants.

The array of technologies tested by RTR is considerable, and in many cases RTR is the only company in Italy to test specific innovations or equipment.

The production of photovoltaic energy is a high-tech sector in which technology evolves very quickly: some innovations prove to be especially effective and useful, and RTR funds their implementation in its plants with its own capital. RTR is not only a European center of excellence, but also a generator and sponsor of cutting-edge technology.
