MEET OUR MEMBERS Daniele Moriconi MANAGING DIRECTOR CHILE d.moriconi@buildingenergy.it Daniele is Italian and lives in Milan with his wife. He is an Energy Engineer with a Master Degree in Nuclear Energy from the Imperial College (London) and an MBA from the ENI Corporate University of Milan. Before joining Building Energy, he worked as a Development and Portfolio Manager in Enel Green Power. What products or services does your company deliver and to what kind(s) of NCREs? Building Energy is an international IPP company based in Milan, Italy. It has been engaged for the last 10 years in building and investing in solar, wind, hydroelectric and biomass NCRE plants, with a pipeline of 2,600 MW in projects worldwide. Which have been the latest new services or changes introduced by your Company? By the end of 2017, we carried out an important financial operation in the London Stock Exchange (Green bond issuance), including three new lines of business: renewable energy trading at the Italian Power Stock Exchange; the incorporation of an installation company of charging stations for electric cars, and a corporate car sharing service fed 100% with renewable energy. What are the main projects -or themes- you have been recently working on concerning NCRE or the environment? In case they are generation plants, where are the located and which are their main characteristics? Also in 2017, we purchased our four first solar projects in Chile (PMGDs) with a total power of 18 MW. In addition, we are developing, with our partners SCOTTA, our first hydroelectric project in the Biobio region, which will start operating in 2019. Which elements characterize and/or distinguish your company? In spite of being a small company, we vertically integrate the entire value chain related to NCRE. The recent incorporations of Trading and Electric Mobility represent an important and radical change in our identity, from a pure IPP to a Utility. How important is NCRE participation in the Chilean electric system? NCRE are already playing a key role in Chile, but are still far from being fully exploited. By implementing the correct business model, Chile might become easily a world leader in massive NCRE implementation, through distributed generation, EV Mobility and VPP (virtual power plants). Why would you recommend being an ACERA member? This is a historic moment for the sector and all of its players. The exchange of ideas, opinions and experiences is the key for the implementation of a sustainability model for the community. ACERA not only gathers all the key players, but enables, through its committees, a constant and active dialogue among all the parties.
