Friendly Energy, AEG to supply PV panels to Italy
This the first foreign deal for Friendly Energy, founded in 2009.
A year ago, Friendly Energy, run by CEO Danny Denan, signed an exclusive collaboration agreement with Gesolar to market its products in Israel and Italy. Under a deal signed a few days ago, Gesolar will deliver 50,000 PV panels to AEG for the production of 10 megawatts of electricity at Italian solar farm. AEG will install the panels on greenhouses beginning in early 2011, as well as at other sites.
This the first foreign deal for Friendly Energy, founded in 2009. Over the past few months, the company installed several dozens solar energy units at private and commercial Israeli customers. According to figures provided by Denan, revenue from these installations totaled NIS 12 million, and the company's orders backlog exceeds NIS 21 million.
"Instability in the Israeli market is driving us to seek international markets. The Italian job with AEG in is our first foothold in a foreign market," Denan said. "The similarity between the Israeli and southern Italian market is amazing in terms of climate, so it's convenient for us to operate there." He added that, before the deal was signed, AEG experts visited Gesolar's factory to test the reliability of its systems and to monitor performance.
Friendly Energy has been trying for a long to time to lead two PV power plant ventures at Ashelim in the Negev. "These two projects are mired in bureaucracy," said Denan.
