Macquarie’s Green Investment Group and Univergy International are to collaborate through a new business entity, Nara Solar to build over 700MW of PV projects in Spain, France and the Netherlands.
Nara Solar is being headquartered in Madrid and is expected to initially develop Univergy International’s existing European portfolio, said to be over 35 projects, totalling more than 700MW.
Yago Acon, CEO of Nara Solar, said: “The European solar market is gearing up a period of significant growth, particularly in Spain where falling costs have stimulated a reawakening of the industry. It’s an exciting time to be creating a new solar development platform that will generate new investment opportunities and help stimulate the growth of solar energy across Europe.”
Spain is expected to install over 8GW of PV projects through 2022, representing an annual growth rate of 21%.
Understanding bifacial’s true potential: technology innovation and technical bankability of bifacial
The deployment of bifacial PV technology is growing rapidly. It has proven to be the most effective solution to reduce levelised energy costs (LCOE) and increase the Investment Rate of Return (IRR) of PV systems, offering substantially improved energy yield compared to the use of standard mono-facial modules. Even though the concept is not new, it has been a niche technology for many years with uncertainties in predicting performance and optimizing installations. Today, bifacial technology is becoming mainstream, with capacity available at the multi-gigawatt scale and with corresponding global deployment of project pipelines. Join this webinar, presented by Andrea Viaro, as he discusses the award-winning Swan bifacial module with transparent backsheet from DuPont, its features, benefits and differences vs. standard glass-glass modules. Jinko Solar’s new bifacial technology innovations will also be highlighted, specifically covering profitability in deployment at utility-scale PV power plants. Andrea will be joined by Dr.Lars Podlowski who will give a comprehensive introduction to all aspects of bifacial PV technology, with a special focus on benefits and risks industry buyers and investors should pay attention to.
