New Partnership: Frutti dell’Albero

Date: 09/05/2023

NextEnergy Foundation (“NEF”) is excited to announce a new partnership with Cooperativa I Frutti dell’Albero. I Frutti dell’Albero has provided services and organised activities for children with cognitive disabilities and autism spectrum disorders through a Laboratory in Macedonia, Italy since 2011.

In 2018, I Frutti dell’Albero began constructing a Day Care Centre in Fossanova San Marco, Italy; the Centre offers all the necessary aids for communication in addition to programmes and tools for the children’s autonomy so that they can interact effectively with professional educators and with each other. It is open on weekdays and is renowned for the psycho-educational services it runs.

NEF is installing a 10kWp rooftop solar system on the Day Care Centre. The system will cover the Centre’s energy needs, avoiding over 150 tonnes CO2e emissions over its lifetime and making the Centre fully sustainable.

An update will be provided on the installation in due course. Thank you very much to Gianluca Boccanera and Fausto Pappalardo from NextEnergy Group for developing the project with a solar installer and overseeing the collaboration with I Frutti dell’Albero.
