Tages Capital SGR currently manages two Funds, namely Tages Helios I and Tages Helios II, holding a portfolio of 174 plants with a total installed capacity of 405 MW (375 PV plants + a 30 MW wind plant), confirming its position as the second largest photovoltaic player in Italy and actively contributing to the energy transition of Italy towards renewable energies.
With reference to the assets owned by the Tages Helios and Tages Helios II Funds, investments in renewable energy installations are sustainable by definition. In fact, the production of these plants, by replacing traditional thermoelectric production, contributes to the reduction of GHG emissions.
The approach to responsible investment of the SGR is centred on the assessment, measurement and monitoring of the production and sustainability performance of all investments, leveraging digitalization and cutting-edge information technologies. The SGR adopts a proprietary monitoring system enabling the real-time measurement of technical indicators and KPIs of its installations, including energy generation. This in turn is used to calculate avoided GHG emissions, based on ISPRA (Italian Istituto superiore per la protezione e la ricerca ambientale) conversion factors.
In 2020 the whole portfolio of Tages Helios I and Tages Helios II generated approx. 478 GWh per year, which is enough to meet the electricity needs of 195,000 households, equal to ¼ of the total requirement of the Metropolitan City of Milan, and an annual saving in the region of 250,000 tons of CO2, equal to the emissions produced by around 10% of the fleet of the Metropolitan City of Milan.
