France‘s Ministry of the Ecological Transition has reported results from the fifth round of the 282 MW solar tender for non-interconnected zones (ZNI) launched in 2019, which is open to PV projects – including those with a storage element – ranging in size from 100 kW to 5 MW.
In the round, 33 projects totaling 29 MW were selected in Mayotte and Guiana. Of the allocated capacity, 6.5 MW were assigned to installations with a capacity of between 100 kW and 500 kW on buildings or car park shades, while another 7.5 MW were awarded to projects of the same kind with capacities from 500 kW to 1.5 MW.
Furthermore, 15 MW was assigned in the category for ground-mounted PV plants with a power rating of 500 kW to 5 MW.
The French energy regulator – the CRE – had originally planned to allocate 27 MW in the procurement exercise.
According to Finergreen, which analyzed the tender's result, among the ten developers identified, Akuo Energy is far ahead, with 10 MW of the power to be installed.
