Main driver of growth

The main reason for possible growth is the transformation of Enel Russia's business. The company decided to completely reformat and follow the global trend of combating climate change. To do this, she sold her coal-fired Reftinskaya GRES in 2019., which brought in ⅓ of total EBITDA, and invested the funds in renewable energy facilities. it, sure, reduced operating and financial results, but the company expects, what will catch up with the commissioning of new green capacities.

At the end of June 2021, the first renewable energy facility was opened - the Azov wind farm. It was a significant event for the company: starting from this moment, Enel Russia will start receiving increased payments under CSA - capacity supply agreement.

RES development. According to the forecasts of Skolkovo and RANEPA specialists, in Russia, the wind farm market will grow from 2020 to 2035 in 4 times.

Arguments against

Zero dividend risk for 2021. There is a risk due to the growth of net debt and huge capex - by the end of 2021 net debt / EBITDA will reach its maximum and amount to 4,1. In the next three years, the volume of the investment program of Enel Russia will amount to 36.7 billion rubles.

Multiple increase in net debt. By 2023, net debt will grow to 42.2 billion rubles.
