Business Segment 

Renewable energy sources 

The ERG Group operates in the renewable energy segment through the subsidiary ERG Renew, whose performance is based mainly on the wind power generation business.

Wind farms consist of wind-power generators that can transform the kinetic energy of wind into mechanical energy, which is used in turn to generate electricity. Aside from the availability of the plants, the performance expected from each wind farm is obviously influenced by the wind speed profile of the site on which the wind farm is located.

Business performance is also influenced by the sale price of electricity, which can also vary in relation to the geographic areas where the plants are located, by the value of "green certificates", and in general, by the incentive systems for renewable energy sources, which differ from country to country. The results of 2013 include the contribution of the ERG Wind farms as a result of the previously commented acquisition.
