Italian energy Superbonus
Collectively, buildings in the EU are responsible for 40% of our energy consumption and 36% of greenhouse gas emissions, which mainly stem from construction, usage, renovation and demolition.
“Primavera in Casa”, a trademark of ADRE HYDROPOWER SRL., is the number one solution in Italy for property rehabilitation with a focus on energy efficiency and anti-seismic measures. Primavera in Casa provides services for full property renovation at minimum cost, thanks to the Italian "Superbonus" Law.
The Superbonus is an Italian law through which the Italian Government gives back 110% of renovation expenses to the property owners in the form of tax credits. The tax credits can be used to pay for bank loans conceded to finance the renovation costs and to construction companies.
This law is complex and the time between the start of the renovation to the cash out of the tax credit is long. ADRE performs the construction work and handles all the financing bureaucracy with the Bank to which the property owners can pay using the tax credits.
Several projects are already in place. This loan is intended to leverage the company’s activity and finance the beginning of several other renovation projects.
Improvement in buildings’ energy efficiency: the solutions implemented by ADRE consist in the installation of photovoltaic plants, energy-efficient building envelopes, electric vehicle chargers and energy-efficient windows. A building renovated by ADRE with the Primavera in Casa program reaches the A-Class in building efficiency. This is an important step for Italian buildings and energy efficiency strategy, since Italy is one of the countries with the largest amount of energy used per m2 (more than 1,5 times higher than the EU average), and its buildings are on average E-Class. A more efficient house consumes less energy, thus leading to lower CO2 emmissions and better thermal comfort.
Improvement in buildings’ anti-seismic resistance: Italy is one of the Mediterranean countries with the highest earthquake risk, and only 25% of buildings are made considering earthquake-resistant principles. The solutions implemented by ADRE consist of works on the reinforcement of the building’s main structure, to increase anti-seismic resistance.
Sustainable buildings and infrastructure: ADRE has renovated around 100 buildings already, and this loan will support the Primavera in Casa to reach more buildings. For the renovation, ADRE uses only non-toxic and some biodegradable and recycled materials.
Creation of jobs: the implementation of this project will allow ADRE to hire up to 10 people in the next years.
In the last years, ADRE has been operating in the hydro-powered energy market in countries such as Albania and Macedonia.
When the Superbonus law was implemented in Italy, the company directed its efforts to the property rehabilitation business and sought legal and fiscal support from expert companies, such as Deloitte and KPMG, who guarantee tax and legal due diligence on each project and a provider for technical due diligence.
The company expects the amount raised will result in an increase of sales between 700.000€ to 1.000.000€.
Money will be used to cover the working capital during this “time mismatch” on a specific project.
ADRE HYDROPOWER SRL was founded in 2001 by Claudio Francesco Barbano in Rome (Italy) as a civil construction company. Over the years, it has entered Albania, Kosovo, Serbia, South America, Indonesia, and South Africa. investing in hydropower plants. In 2009, it entered Chile and Indonesia and recently South Africa.
In 2012, one of the company’s projects (Albanian Hydropower Plant) received financing from the European Bank of Reconstruction, with an EU incentive for its contribution to CO2 emission reduction
With the implementation of the Superbonus law in Italy in 2019, ADRE created the project “Primavera in Casa”, to rehabilitate buildings to make them safer and more efficient.
ADRE has a large pipeline of condominiums to begin restructuring and has already begun work on several others. These renovation works will make Italian buildings more energy-efficient, thus reducing CO2 emissions and costs for the owners.
