Spanish oil and gas giant Repsol has announced plans to build 1,768MW of renewable energy projects across Italy.

The portfolio will include 943MW in wind and 825MW in solar projects. More than 60% of the projects are in advanced stages of development.

Several projects within the portfolio were acquired through the purchase of Spanish company Asterion Energies in 2022.

Repsol agreed to €560m ($594m) for the acquisition, along with €20m in contingent payments.

Asterion previously had a portfolio of 7.7GW of renewable projects. The projects were mostly under development and included 4.9GW of solar and 2.8GW of wind, of which 2.5GW were in advanced stages of development or under construction.

The newly announced portfolio is chiefly located in Basilicata, Lazio, Molise, Puglia Sardinia, Sicily, Tuscany and Umbria.
