    /MUNICH, June 10, 2022, 13:15 BST, PVEurope, BayWa r.e. Renewable Energy GmbH/ BayWa r.e. has commissioned a solar park with battery storage in Villingen-Schwenningen in Baden-Württemberg/Germany. The plant combination is supported by the innovation tender of the Federal Network Agency. The solar park, with a capacity of 7 MW, can generate approximately 8 million kWh of green electricity annually, which is equivalent to the consumption of 2,500 average households in Germany. The storage capacity of the 3 MW battery storage is 4 MWh. Marc Krezer, Head of Project Development PV Germany, comments on the commissioning: "We would like to thank the Villingen-Schwenningen municipality for the good cooperation and are pleased with the timely completion and commissioning of the Spitalhöfe solar park. From now on, the plant combination can feed electricity into the grid. The storage facility makes an important contribution to grid stability and security of supply."

    /MUNICH, October 26, 2023, 14:30 GMT, BayWa r.e. Renewable Energy GmbH/ BayWa r.e. has secured €6.5 million in funding from the EU’s LIFE Programme, which will be used to develop six projects across five countries by 2027, combining agriculture with solar power generation. All six projects are either first or significant steps forward for their respective markets. Working closely with EU representatives, landowners, and local communities, BayWa r.e. aims to develop the commercial viability of Agri-PV and to demonstrate its benefits as an effective climate-adaptation strategy for fruit and crop cultivation in Europe. BayWa r.e. has been instrumental in proving the benefits for using Agri-PV to supplement fruit farming at scale (fruitvoltaics). As part of EU LIFE ADAPT-PV, three of these new projects, in France, Spain, and the Netherlands, aim to increase fruitvoltaic projects’ resistance to climate change by providing a combination of crop protection and generation of green solar energy, within an innovative financing model.

    /14th October 2021, BayWa r.e. Renewable Energy GmbH, Fraunhofer ISE/ BayWa r.e., a pioneer in Agri-PV solutions, and the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE, together with other research partners, have built the first Agri-PV research facility for apples and espalier fruit at the Nachtwey organic fruit farm in Gelsdorf in Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany. The primary objective of the project, which is funded by the German Ministry of Environment, Energy, Food and Forestry of Rhineland-Palatinate (MUEEF) and the Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture (BMEL), is to increase climate resilience in fruit growing and to ensure safe and sustainable apple production with additional solar power generation. As part of the project, which will run for five years, numerous factors will be investigated on eight varieties of apple.

  • Poland Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Power Market Reached 3.89 GW in 2020 - Trends, Investments, Financial Model, Analysis, COVID-19 Impact

    Poland Solar Photovoltaic PV Power Market Outlook 2020 2030 Small

    /17th March 2021, RENEWABLE MARKET WATCHTM/ Solar photovoltaic (PV) power market in Poland reached the impressive 3.9 GW cumulative installed capacity (up from 1.3 GW in 2019), revealing the recent update of Poland Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Power Market Outlook 2020÷2030. This market report offers an incisive and reliable overview of the photovoltaic sector of the country for the next 10 years period 2020 ÷ 2030. Poland is a very interesting market, due to its political and economic stability, high prices for electricity, and heavy dependence on coal and lignite in power generation, which should be changed to comply with EU renewable policy. The country is well on track to reach its NECP goal of 7.8 GW of solar by 2025. The Polish institute IEO has reported that by December 2020, 10 GW worth of preliminary grid project permits were acquired, marking the sustained growth of solar in Poland. Because of cuts in FIT’s announced in Germany, Spain, France, UK, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Bulgaria Romania, and Italy, Poland represents a stable investment environment in Central-East Europe. Consuming 77 million tonnes of coal per year, Poland is the 10th largest coal consumer in the world and the 2nd largest in the EU, after Germany. The Central Mining Institute of Poland estimates that coal production will fall by one third in 2030 if no investments are made in the sector.
