Talesun, a Munich-based manufacturer of solar modules and cells, is opening a branch office in northern Italy. The move is part of the company’s European growth strategy.
Despite the capping of the tariff system through the recent Conto Energia 5 legislation, Talesun says it is demonstrating its belief in the potential of the Italian photovoltaic market.
The subsidiary opened this month, with access to a sales and distribution network through its cooperation with Andrea Beltrami and Marco Viganò. The new team will have responsibility for the Italian market and will work closely with the company’s headquarters.
Talesun has already seen success in Italy. In May, the company completed a 23.8-MW solar plant in San Floro, Calabria.
“Italy is, and will continue to be, a key European market for the photovoltaic sector,” says CEO Joachim Simonis. “Extensive solar radiation and favorable site conditions exist throughout the country, making the generation of solar energy at price parity with existing energy production a very realistic goal.”
Simonis says the 5th Conto Energia was not what the sector was hoping for, but it did lay out a political decision that is binding. That allows for planning, he says.
