Specifically, the consolidated results of TERNA ENERGY during the first half of 2021 were reported as follows:

The burden of 94.4 million Euros in the consolidated financial results corresponds to the result from the divestment of the three wind farms in Texas, USA, as estimated and disclosed in previous announcements.

It is worth emphasizing that the development of the Group continues uninterruptedly, with its investment plan evolving smoothly but also intensively in all areas of activity. The Group's goal to reach 3,000 MW of total installed capacity (wind farms, photovoltaic parks and storage systems) within the next five years, stands. In this context, the company recently put an additional 30 MW of wind farms in operation, in Greece. TERNA ENERGY Group had a portfolio on 30/06/2021 of more than 1,300 MW in operation, under construction or ready for construction in Greece, Central and Eastern Europe. Also, additional wind projects with total capacity of more than 1,800 MW in various areas in Greece are in the phase of licensing maturity. At the same time, new photovoltaic parks with a total capacity of 1,700 MW are being planned and developed and storage systems with total capacity of about 2,000 MW are being promoted. Finally, the Group has been active in offshore wind parks, where it plans, in joint venture with OCEAN WINDS, to develop projects in the Greek seas.
