Within carring out the theses at Riga Technical University, Claudio created and installed the first solar energy and wood pellets combined system in an apartment building in Latvia (Barona street 2, Sigulda, Latvia).

Currently Claudio has specialized in energy services (ESCO) with a target on development of energy-efficiency and renewable energy projects. In cooperation with the leading ESCO company RENESCO (www.renesco.lv), they had implemented several projects in Latvia. EPC (Energy Performance Contracting - EPC) for apartment owners allows them to restore the obsolete property and remediate the environment in which to live, without worrying about where to get the necessary funding and how to plan and carry out the project.

Also Claudio has specialized in modeling of heat power systems and feasibility studies. Claudio has directed and performed countless performance tests to CHP plants, boilers and other combustion plants.
