August 4 (Renewables Now) - Italian energy company Edison (BIT:EDNR) has acquired 40 MW of wind power assets located in the regions of Sicily and Puglia, increasing its presence in its home country.

Specifically, Edison bought 100% of Vibinum Srl from Futuren Group, a unit of French group EDF (EPA:EDF), and 90% of Aerochetto Srl, of which a 51% stake came from Futuren and a 39% interest from Repower Spa.

Aerochetto and Vibinum own 30 MW and 10 MW of wind capacity, respectively. Together, they are capable of meeting the energy needs of about 24,695 families and offset around 30,817 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions per year.

Over the next years, these wind parks may be repowered, Edison points out in the press release.

With the 40 MW of wind included, the energy company has a total wind and solar installed capacity of 1.1 GW and aims to increase this amount to 4 GW by 2030.
