Solar still largely underestimated

Two recent studies have separately shown that many scenarios assessing global decarbonization pathways are still predicting too-low future PV capacity and too-high LCOEs for the solar technology. The researchers analyzed scenarios provided by scientific researchers, government bodies and non-governmental organizations, including the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), the European Commission, the Indian government, the International Energy Agency (IEA), and the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), among others.

Denmark introduces incentive for green heating

Danish gas transmission system operator Evida will exempt homeowners and individuals that want to abandon gas and choose renewable energy for heating from paying the grid disconnection fee. The scheme will be run on a first-come, first-served basis.

Danish solar developer secures unsubsidized 112 GWh power purchase agreement

Better Energy will connect 111 MW of solar generation capacity in Jutland to the grid this year after landing a power offtake agreement from Centrica.

Seven-year PPA for 34 MW solar park in Denmark

Denmark’s Better Energy is building the PV facility in Denmark’s southernmost region. Danish pharmaceutical company Lundbeck has agreed to buy the power generated by the plant over a seven-year period.

EU records annual rise of 7 TWh in third-quarter solar output

European renewables, including Spanish solar, made big gains as energy demand recovered before the second wave of Covid infections. Nuclear was a notable loser, in part because clean energy volumes in the north of the continent drove down power prices sufficiently to make reactors uncompetitive.

More PPA-linked big solar under development in Denmark

Luxcara and Be Green want to build 415 MW of unsubsidized solar in Denmark. The authorities are planning four solar parks, with the electricity to be sold to power consumers under power purchase agreements.

Denmark’s Better Energy designs solar park for lowlands

Better Energy is developing a new pilot project to demonstrate how future solar parks can be built on restored wetlands, not only reducing CO2 emissions by producing green power, but also by restoring carbon-rich lowland areas to wetlands.

Apple data center in Denmark powered by 50 MW of solar

European Energy has built a solar array and is now constructing a wind farm to provide Apple’s data center in Denmark with 100% renewable energy. The PV project, which features bifacial panels, is the country’s largest unsubsidized PV installation in operation.

Unsubsidized 200 MW PV plant under construction in Denmark

Better Energy is building the project on cultivated organic agricultural land in the municipality of Holstebro.

Techno-economic analysis of PV-powered golf carts

Danish researchers have shown that adding 250 W solar panels to all of the buggies in a 50-cart fleet is a profitable investment. With an upfront investment of around €75,000, annual benefits of around €15,000 are possible, they claim.
