Berlin awards contracts of tech-neutral auction where only PV submitted bids, while Athens announces new 482.03MW PV exercise in July after price-smashing April tender.
Solar projects larger than 20MW will be able to compete with wind for state support at tech-neutral tender, the latest for country hoping to reach 7.7GW of installed PV by 2030.
Traditionally wind-leaning Nordic state could witness PV surge from 998MW in 2018 to 5GW in 2030 and 7.3GW by 2040 via mix of auction and free-market approach, government stats show.
European Commission’s green light will see country inject up to €5.4bn into PV, wind and others via auctions and contracts for difference until 2021.
Figures released by regulator show bids of 200.26MW have been tabled for 300MW tender, seeking to support solar installations of 20MW or below.
