Enel Green Power (EGP) has begun construction of five giant wind and PV facilities with a combined capacity of 1.5GW in the US, as the Italian developer embraces President Joe Biden’s ambition for a carbon-free electric grid by 2035.

“The American transition to clean energy is unstoppable, and EGP North America is playing a leading role,” said CEO Salvatore Bernabei, its CEO, adding the company in the US had the ambition of “helping meet the ambitious clean energy targets of policymakers and businesses alike”.
