The acquisition of Solarcentury and its PV project pipeline represents a “big step up” for Statkraft as it looks to become one of the world’s leading renewable companies in the next five years, CEO Christian Rynning-Tønnesen has said.
BayWa r.e., Enel Green Power and Solarcentury are among the 20 participants in a new European Union-funded project that aims to increase the performance and reliability of solar PV components and systems.
The era of subsidy-free solar is well underway in a growing number of markets, with Europe leading the way. As Solarcentury’s Peer Piske explains, the greater sensitivities around modelling zero-subsidy projects mean new approaches to design and planning are required by developers
UK-based solar developer Solarcentury posted record profits in excess of £20 million in its last financial year, helping the company plot a course to complete an international pipeline that now amounts to 6GW.
PV company Solarcentury and PV/wind operator Encavis AG have started construction on the US$250.5 million Talayuela Solar Project, a 300MW PV project being developed in Cáceres, Extremadura, Spain. Once completed, it will be one of the largest and most powerful subsidy-free solar developments in Spain to date.
