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.
