The plants owned by ERG Hydro, located in the Umbria, Lazio, and Marche regions of Italy, have an installed capacity of 527 MW and an average annual production of around 1.5 TWh.

Enel said that the transaction strengthens its growth in renewables, giving it a further increase in its installed capacity in Italy. Enel now has approximately 13 GW of installed hydropower capacity across Italy, for a total renewable capacity, including geothermal, wind and PV, of around 14.5 GW in the country.
