WiNRG is a German group specializing in the construction of renewable projects for third parties and for its own portfolio. The company , which has its headquarters in Lisbon for the Iberian Peninsula, announced that it has connected to the grid in Portugal three of the six projects that it is currently developing and that together they have a combined installed capacity of 205 MW.

The three newly connected photovoltaic plants are located in Amareleja, Cartaxo and Ferreira do Alentejo, and add up to 74 MW. The three remaining projects will be connected to the grid at the beginning of 2021. These are the Santarém (23 MW) and Moura (49 MW) photovoltaic plants, which have already been completed and are only awaiting connection to the grid by the network operator. The Lagos plant (59 MW) is still under construction. Once in operation, the group's Portuguese portfolio will generate around 345,000 MWh per year.
