Energy

Energy transition is a reality, and at our engineering company, we are committed to creating a more sustainable future. The transition to a low-carbon economy is an urgent necessity, and we are here to assist our clients in achieving their goals in this field.

In the European Union, the Green Deal sets the target of achieving carbon neutrality by 2050. This entails a significant reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and an increase in renewable energy production.

At Increscendo, we are committed to this goal and work on projects that support this energy transition. Our focus on renewable energy includes planning, designing, and on-site support for concentrated solar power (CSP) and tower projects, photovoltaic, wind, and biomass energy projects. Additionally, we offer consulting services to help our clients identify energy efficiency opportunities and reduce greenhouse gas emissions in their operations.

We are dedicated to the energy transition towards a low-carbon economy. We provide innovative solutions in renewable energy and technical consultancy to assist our clients in achieving their sustainability and emission reduction objectives.
