Valerio Vadaachino is part of the Business Development team in Enel Green Power North America, as reference manager for the development of new initiatives of Enel Group in the North American energy market. The relevant increase of distributed and renewable generation in this market requires an intensive upgrade of the electricity grids as well as project engineering knowledge of Smart Grids technology and innovative solutions to satisfy new fast-growing needs. I’m providing technical and commercial support in the area of Smart Grids and Microgrid solutions in order to generate and commission new business integration with this technology. I’m supporting the development and implementation of an array of different technological solutions and business models that are project specific and mirror the project solution methods and practices used by Enel Group worldwide. That includes designing project cases and production coordination of alternative energy initiatives that will utilize Smart Grids technology. Creation and management of valuable partnerships with leading local and global companies are among my main activities to boost the business development strategy. Maintaining continuous contacts with executive managers and high-level institutional representatives complements the day-by-day issues I’ve to face with. I’m providing my long and deep expertise in the energy business processes for this highly specialized, technical area, in which EGPNA and the whole Enel Group are developing new energy alternatives and business opportunities. Therefore a high team leadership is necessary to duly engage the right people inside the company and manage the relationship with external partners to achieve good results in such a fast paced and competitive environment.
