• Lightsource BP Acquires Three Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Projects in Italy with a Capacity of 156 MWp

    /6th May 2021, Lightsource bp/ in Italy, Lightsource bp continues to boost its utility-scale solar portfolio by acquiring three projects from Horizon Firm, a trusted developer specialized in solar, totalling 156MWp across the country. Two of the projects are based in Sicily, in a low solar plant massification density area, in the province of Agrigento: the Canicattì project (40.9 MWp) and the Torre di Mastro project (58.2 MWp). The third project, Manfredonia (57.4 MWp), based in Apulia, will be developed as an Agri-PV with the aim of virtuously integrating agriculture and renewable energy. These projects cast light upon the two regions’ strategic roles for the development of RES in line with the national objectives of energy production and decarbonisation.

  • Self-Consumption Solar PV Systems Easier for Installation in Castilla-La Mancha Region of Spain Due to the Efforts of the Spanish Photovoltaic Union (UNEF)

    /9th March 2021, UNEF/ The Spanish Photovoltaic Union (UNEF) has managed to get Castilla-La Mancha to approve the adaptation of the regional urban planning laws regarding the self-consumption solar PV systems. These facilities are treated through prior communication, which considerably speeds up administrative processing. With this, it would already be more than half the Autonomous Communities that have eliminated this administrative barrier to self-consumption solar PV systems and, therefore, streamlined the approval processes.

  • UNEF Celebrates the Success of the Spanish Auction Model for Photovoltaic Energy Competitiveness

    /9th February 2020, Global Solar Council/ The Unión Española Fotovoltaica (UNEF) doubly celebrates the success of the first renewable energy auction in Spain call since 2017 in which photovoltaic energy has demonstrated its competitiveness by achieving 2,036 MW of the 3,034 auctioned MW. It also congratulates itself because the awarding has been widely distributed among companies and has covered all sizes of projects, accommodating a wide variety of players.
