With the results of the seventh round of tenders for renewable energies in Italy published yesterday, juwi was able to secure the feed-in tariff for three solar parks with a total installed capacity of 12.2 megawatts.
Perseverance pays off: The Italian subsidiary of German developer for renewable energy projects juwi secured the feed-in-tariff for three solar projects in the seventh round of tenders for renewable energies by the Italian grid agency Gestore dei Servizi Energetici (GSE): two projects are in Piacenza in the Region Emilia-Romagna and have an installed capacity of 4.5 and five megawatts respectively. The third project is in Carlino in the Friuli Venezia Giulia region and has a capacity of 2.7 megawatts. All three projects were developed by juwi and are also being implemented by juwi.
“After returning to project development and building up our project pipeline in recent years, the success of the tender round is an important milestone for juwi Italy. In addition to the projects for the tendering system, we also develop parks that are marketed entirely on a private-sector basis," explains Managing Director Daniele Moriconi. With the three project awards, juwi is one of the winners of the seventh round of tenders.
The German renewable energy pioneer has been active in Italy since 2007. At that time, juwi installed the first solar park in Italy in Bolzano, South Tyrol. More than 50 other projects followed with a total installed capacity of around 60 megawatts. Further projects are in the well-filled project pipeline.
A total of 49 smaller solar projects with up to ten megawatts and eleven large projects with up to 92.4 megawatts were able to secure the future feed-in tariff. The successful bids in the tendering round were between 6.263 cents per kilowatt hour and 6.86 cents per kilowatt hour. Solar projects with an output of 710.2 megawatts as well as wind projects with an output of 267.4 megawatts were selected in the joint tender.
