The Lithuanian renewable energy company will initially install 12 power plants at a cost of around €11 million.
The company, which was one of Europe’s largest OEM module manufacturers, has decided to close its Polish manufacturing facility, due to an expected drop in demand.
The two companies have signed a license agreement. The first pilot projects with the semitransparent perovskite solar cells are planned for this year in Poland
The solar park is being developed as an “energy cluster” in the frame of the recent reform of Poland’s Renewable Energy Sources (RES) Act.
A PLN 40 billion (around €9.4 billion) Polish support scheme for renewable energy has been approved by the European Commission. Meanwhile, Guernsey-based Sequoia Economic Infrastructure Income Fund has agreed to provide financing for ReneSola’s 55 plants in Poland, each with a capacity of 1 MW.
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.
Researchers from the Institute of Physics of the Polish Academy of Sciences (PAS) and the renowned Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL) have collaborated on a new technique for the creation of perovskite solar cell materials. The technique replaces traditional solvent based processes with steel ball mill grinding.
Solar projects with a capacity above 1 MW will compete with wind projects in a 150 MW renewable energy auction to be held in Poland by the end of this year, according to local research institute IEO.
Solar had likely the largest share of the 472 projects awarded in the auction, which was open to PV, wind and hydropower projects up to 1 MW.
