aventron’s ambition is to become a leading player in the European niche market for electricity production from renewable sources. The company’s activities are governed by an original growth strategy.
To minimise risks in individual markets or sectors, aventron diversifies across countries and technologies. Solar energy should in future contribute around 20% of the revenues, with hydro electricity and wind power each accounting for 40% of the turnover. In the next few years aventron will be concentrating on the Swiss, French German, Italian, Spanish and Norwegian markets. The stated goal is for no single country to account for more than 40% of the turnover, thereby reaching a critical mass across the board.
Operations in the German, Italian and Norwegian markets started in Spring 2014 through their established local subsidiaries. aventron is also targeting existing projects or those that have reached the construction stage in these new markets. Investments are confined to water, wind and solar plants up to a capacity of 20 MW per plant.
Selected investments in mature technologies will give aventron a power-plant portfolio with an installed capacity of 500 MW and an output of around 1080 GWh by 2020. To complement further acquisitions, aventron seeks to benefit from potential synergies and thus improve its operational excellence.
