RTR’S STRATEGY

  • With 134 operating sites, RTR has capillary presence throughout Italy
  • Industry-leading Operations & Maintenance
  • Availability constantly above 99%, Performance Ratio at industry-leading level
  • Very large consolidation opportunity in the Italian solar PV market  spearheading a major aggregation trend covering all other key solar markets across Europe
  • New incentive-free solar PV plants, with power off-take through governmental auctions and corporate Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs)
  • Increasing demand for long-term green power supply from final consumers

  • Integration of decentralised solar PV installations with battery storage
  • Interactive optimisation of local demand and supply, full digitization of business model
  • Customer-centric green energy supply solutions

TRACK RECORD

The market for small, medium and large utility-scale PV plants in Italy is nearly 11,000 MW strong. There is ample room for consolidation, with a particularly attractive segment containing a large number of medium as well as small utility-scale solar PV plants. In this segment there are over 7,000 single plants across Italy, with a total capacity potential of over 7,000 MW. RTR has developed and started to implement a specific acquisition procedure for these plants and smaller portfolios, highlighted by the last three successful bolt-on acquisitions in this segment.

After closing an acquisition, our primary objective is to connect the new plants to our asset management platform as quickly as possible. Visibility of plants and remote control over the new plants is today reached from RTR’s monitoring room in just about 2 weeks. The potential for operational improvements is swiftly addressed, and better operations will lead quicker to better results.

With 8 bolt-on acquisitions successfully implemented over the past years, RTR is today the leading consolidator for solar PV plants in Italy. The enormous potential to further scale up through consolidation moves in Italy as well as in Europe plays to the strengths and track record of RTR.

OUR PLANTS

RTR owns 134 solar plants located in more than 100 municipalities. Therefore, RTR has the geographically most diversified presence of any operator in Italy or is simply the largest decentralised green power generator in the country.

The composition of the portfolio is as folllows: 87 plants have an installed capacity of less than 1 MW (for a total of 66 MW), 31 plants have an installed capacity of between 1 and 5 MW (about 70 MW) and 16 plants are larger than 5MW (196MW).

All of RTR’s PV plants are managed from a central monitoring room in Rome. Thanks to constant monitoring, instant data analysis and quick intervention to resolve any technical problems, the company can achieve very high levels of availability and performance ratio.

The deep and structured analysis of all data collected from plants within RTR’s portfolio allows the company to identify new technical solutions maximising production.

READ MORE

The data lake feeding also the monitoring room in Rome receives and stores information coming from all plants and technical systems 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The chain of measurements starts with on-site irradiation and module temperature and goes on with performance data collection from all plant components, including the photovoltaic modules, the production meters, the inverter station as well as the transformer cabin.

RTR pays particular attention to plant security. We have implemented an advanced, multi-level security system which detects, inter alia, unregistered presence and allows distinguish ing real situations from false alarms.
