EnBW takes over Solar Projects in Germany


The German companies EnBW and Procon Solar GmbH have agreed that the former will take over solar projects from the latter. These will be pre-developed photovoltaic projects located in Brandenburg, Germany. They will have a capacity of 400 MW and EnBW will have the option to develop another 400 MW.

A step-by-step project recovery

EnBW takes over several pre-developed solar projects of Procon Solar GmbH with a capacity of 400 MW. It will then be possible to add another 400 MW. This joint step ensures Procon Solar’s contribution to the energy transition and strengthens EnBW’s position.

Furthermore, by 2025, EnBW expects renewable energies to make up half of its generation portfolio. Contracts with Procon Solar cover solar projects in various stages of development. Also, they will have to be carried out in two stages.

On July 1, 2022, the transfer of the photovoltaic projects in the advanced development phase (400 MW) to EnBW will take place. At the same time, EnBW will take over nine employees of Proton Solar and will keep their Cottbus location as an office. Then, by early February 2023 at the latest, other projects in the early stages of development (400 MW) will follow.

In addition, EnBW is committed to retaining the current project development team and its expertise. Thorsten Jörß, head of project development for photovoltaics at EnBW, is pleased about this. According to him, this is a real advantage for his company since it allows him to keep the richness of the current expertise. In this way, the company remains well positioned for other projects in the region.

EnBW wants to remain a reliable partner in the energy transition

Harald Schmoch, Head of Renewable Energy at EnBW, explains:

“It is important for us to be a reliable partner in the energy transition. This is true for the people and communities of Brandenburg as well as for the energy-producing region of Lusatia.”

He adds that their experience working locally can bring real benefits to the region. Moreover, EnBW is strongly committed to Brandenburg. The company already owns three solar parks in Weesow-Willersdorf, Gottesgabe and Alttrebbin with a combined capacity of 500 MW.

It is important to Klaus Hoff, Managing Director of Procon Solar, to entrust his projects to competent and committed employees. In EnBW, he says, he has found a strong partner for the energy transition. In fact, he appreciates his local roots and his increased knowledge of the environment.

HySynergy: Everfuel and Crossbridge launch phase 2

Everfuel and Crossbridge Energy announced that they have signed a long-term agreement. It determines the terms of the hydrogen supply for one stage of the HySynergy project, currently under development. This is a major milestone for the smelter, which is expected to reach a capacity of 300 MW. Everfuel and Crossbridge Energy launch the second phase of HySynergy Everfuel and Crossbridge Energy have approved commercial terms for the first stage of the HySynergy smelter development. Three stages make up phase two of the development, corresponding to three sections of 100 MW capacity. Section A is expected to produce up to 40 tons of renewable hydrogen per day. The Crossbridge Energy refinery will use this hydrogen to produce more sustainable fuel. It is also intended for the mobility and industrial sectors as a zero-emission fuel. Jacob Krogsgaard, CEO of Everfuel, welcomes the agreement with Crossbridge Energy: "The long-term agreement on commercial terms with Crossbridge Energy is an important element for the HySynergy Phase II development project. We share a strong partnership and look forward to continuing our collaboration on the construction of a large-scale PtX facility that will be a game changer for the energy transition in Denmark.

Tata Power Solar inaugurates a Floating Solar project

Tata Power Solar, a wholly owned subsidiary of Tata Power, has just accomplished a remarkable feat in India. In fact, it has just commissioned the largest floating solar power project in the country. Despite the technical difficulties, the company was able to deliver the project on time, proving its commitment to the energy transition. Tata Power Solar achieves a technical feat Tata Power Solar inaugurates India's largest floating solar power project. The latter is located on a body of water of about 141 hectares in the backwaters of Kayamkulam, in Kerala. In addition, this project has an installed capacity of 101.6MWp. This project is the first of the floating solar photovoltaic power plants (FSPV) with a power purchase agreement. In addition, it has obtained a commercial operation date (CoD) certification designating it as complete and operational. Tata Power Solar has built a platform on the water on which the entire solar power plant floats. 134 cast pile foundations, drilled to a depth of 20 meters, anchor the entire project to the waterbed. This supports the central monitoring and control stations and the 33/220 kilovolt distribution substation. The entire array includes floats and solar panel modules. Tata Power Solar had to...


CIP invests in Onshore Wind in Spain

In a press release, CIP announces its commitment to onshore wind energy. With an investment of 70 million euros, the group is pursuing its commitments made at the COP 26. In effect, CIP is providing a CI GCF I credit to Capital Energy, a major Spanish renewable energy developer. CIP wants to develop onshore wind power in Spain First of all, Capital Energy wants to develop onshore wind power in Spain. With this in mind, a financing agreement was signed between the two entities. The CIP loan will provide a total of 70 million euros. This will facilitate the development and construction of a 1 GW portfolio of onshore wind assets in Spain. Thus, onshore wind power will be deployed throughout Spain with construction and operation between 2023 and 2025. Second, CIP emphasizes the historic nature of the credit to Capital Energy. This transaction is the first investment of the new CI GCF I fund. In addition, the financing will allow Capital Energy to accelerate the construction and deployment of its onshore wind assets. CIP will support its partner in its strategic plan to become an independent power producer. Finally, Nicholas Blach-Petersen, CIP partner and co-manager of CI GCF I,...
