Releases its first sustainability report, re-emphasizing Encavis’ commitment to thinking, acting and working sustainably in all dimensions
Releasing its annual report, German renewable energy company Encavis AG announced that it has achieved a strong operating growth in 2020, surpassing the revenue and operating earnings forecasts in 2020, despite COVID-19 and other corresponding obstacles and delays.
The revenue showed an increase of 7% at €292.3 million ($345.10 million), where in 2019, it was at €273.8 million ($323.26 million). The operating cash flow increased by 12.5% to €212.9 million, where in 2019, it was at €189.3 million ($223.5 million) and the operating earnings per share (EPS) was at €0.43 ($0.51).
Wind parks contributed around €14.4 million ($17 million) and the Group’s asset management around €4.9 million ($5.79 million) to the revenue growth of €18.5 million ($21.84 million). Revenue of the Group’s solar parks only slightly declined due to the additional revenue from the Spanish solar park La Cabrera compensating partially the less favourable meteorological conditions compared to last year’s record level. The company also registered an increase in operating cash flow by around€23.6 million ($27.86 million), where asset management contributed a significant€10.3 million ($12.16 million).
“The continuing expansion of the portfolio and the high degree of availability of our installations contributed to us being able to achieve our forecast targets in spite of more or less average meteorological conditions in many parts of Europe,” said CFO of Envcavis AG Dr Christoph Husmann.
The financial year 2021 will benefit from the continuing expansion of the portfolio, especially when two major projects in Spain will begin contributing full-year revenue and earnings for the first time. The company’s Management Board expects an even stronger increase in revenue to over €320 million ($377.81 million) in 2021. The company also plans to achieve operating earnings (EBITDA) of more than €240 million ($283.36 million) and operating EBIT of over €138 million ($162.93 million). This would result in operating EPS of €0.46 ($0.54). The operating cash flow is expected to exceed €210 million ($247.94 million).
Last year, Encavis had expanded its geographical area of operations for solar power to Denmark with a development partnership with GreenGo Energy Group a/s. For Encavis, this partnership is aligned with its new growth plan to expand its power generation capacity to 3.4 GW by 2025 (see Encavis Plans Big For Denmark Solar Market)
