For over 20 years, Ciro Capricano has been working in the field of renewable energies. Already in 1987, as a student at the polytechnic of Ruesselsheim and self-employed member of the research group "Windenergie" (Wind Energy), he was among the pioneers developing wind turbine generators. After graduating in physics in 1990, he became deputy head of the reasearch group "Windenergie" (Wind Energy) of the polytechnic of Ruesselsheim which he left in 1993. In the same year, he founded the engineering office NET with the scope of developing and planning projects in the filed of renewable energies.
Since then, Ciro Capricano has put an emphasis on wind energy. Among others, he has been involved in the development of one of the first gearless wind turbines with a permanently excited magnetic generator. In the 90's, he focussed on opening up the German wind market and he was then managing director of several companies. This was followed by the development of other wind markets in Europe.
In the last years, he has mainly been working on the Italian wind market. He has been providing advice to planners in the planning and optimisation of projects and assistance in their negotiations with wind turbine producers and financial institutes. Consequently, he avails of a well-found knowledge of the market and is part of a strong network consisting of German and international project planners, finance providers and legal consultants.
