Smart Solar Technology has secured Turkish government support to build a vertically integrated solar module factory in Izmir, Turkey.
SolarApex has built what it calls the world’s largest rooftop PV array. A 140 MW project on a steelmill will help Turkish steelmaker Tosyali to shift its production to carbon-free “green steel.” Chief Marketing Officer Besime Özderici says the project could be an example for other energy-intensive industries.
Turkey’s new provisions state that self-consumption projects and solar irrigation installations can be built without the need for construction permits.
The average global price of solar kilowatt-hours fell 13% on 2020’s prices, as around two-thirds of the renewables capacity installed last year was cheaper than the lowest-cost fossil fuel alternative.
The Turkish authorities will provide winning projects in the nation’s latest solar tender with 15-year power purchase guarantees. Domestic content requirements for equipment have played an important role in the procurement exercise.
The Turkish Ministry of Energy has completed, thus far, only the tender’s first 300 MW tranche, and the three winning bids ranged from $0.0257/kWh to $0.0293/kWh
