The Italian wind energy specialist has acquired 100% of ForVei, a company that owns 30 PV plants across northern, central and southern Italy.
The government of the African country has issued an expression of interest in seeking consultancy companies for the environmental and social impact assessment of a 20 MW PV power project.
According to the auction’s preliminary results, solar may account for 55% of contracted power with 3.0 TWh. Final results will be announced on November 22.
Solar will have the same ceiling price as thermoelectric and biomass power projects, while wind and hydro will have a maximum price of $83/MWh and $85/MWh, respectively.
The solar facility, which was entirely financed by Netherlands’ Ministry of economic affairs, is located on the island of Sint Eustatius.
The Polish government said the auction was cancelled due to some adjustments relating the EU state aid rules that must be done in the legislation for renewables.
