10 September: Renewable energy investment firm Cubico Sustainable Investments has entered into agreements to acquire three operational, fixed-tilt, ground-mounted solar PV projects in the Algarve, Portugal, totalling 29.4MW, from CEF Energia Ibérica B.V., a solar power plant company backed by Glennmont Partners.

The three solar PV projects to be acquired are Avalades (15.8MW), Ferreiras (6.8MW) and Sol Cativante V (6.8MW).
