The Three Seas Fund Makes its First Energy Investment in RP Global-backed Renewables Developer Enery Development Gmbh

Three Seas Initiative Investment Fund Small

/26th May 2020, 3SIIF/ The Three Seas Initiative Investment Fund, invests in RP Global-backed renewables developer Enery Three Seas Initiative Investment Fund S.A. SICAV-RAIF (‘3SIIF’, ‘the Fund’) announces that it has made its first investment in the energy sector, acquiring a significant interest in Enery Development GmbH (‘Enery’), an operations-led renewable energy developer. The existing shareholders, RP Global and Enery Management, will remain invested with a long-term vision to partner for growth within the Three Seas region. The investment is due to complete following merger control approvals. Enery owns a portfolio of 85MW of operating solar generation assets in Bulgaria, Czech Republic and Slovakia and has a significant development portfolio of over 2GW in a number of Three Seas countries, including Romania, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic and Slovakia. Solar Photovoltaic (‘PV’) generation has yet to be widely deployed in Central and Eastern Europe (‘CEE’) despite the ideal conditions with high levels of irradiation and availability of suitable land. The increasingly pressing requirement to decarbonise the CEE region is expected to present substantial opportunities for renewables investment in the near term.

Croatia Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Power Market Development in the Clean Energy Transformation Context – Insights, Political Climate, Energy Strategy, Forecast, Renewable Market Watch

Croatia Solar Photovoltaic PV Power Market Development Renewable Market Watch small

/12th May 2021, RENEWABLE MARKET WATCHTM/ This decade shall be crucial for the clean energy transformation of Croatia, reveals the Renewable Market Watch™ in its report Western Balkans Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Power Market Outlook 2021÷2030. The country has considerable potential for developing solar energy and increasing energy independence. The energy transition council of Croatian President Zoran Milanović was established in 2020 and estimated the country’s solar potential to 6.8GW. However, to harness this potential effectively, Croatia will need to adopt more ambitious solar energy targets, ensure clear renewable energy investment direction in the power sector, and develop its modern electricity grid. The clean energy transition and development of the solar power sector can contribute to GDP growth and new jobs creation. Renewable Market Watch estimates that solar photovoltaic power capacity in Croatia will increase significantly in the following years compared to its current level assuming the tendered and planned large scale projects. The abundance of solar irradiation in Croatia shall enable photovoltaic energy to become an increasingly cost-competitive power generation source and attract new investments.

The European Investment Bank (EIB) Approved € 2 Billion for Wind and Solar Power

EIB backs 3.4 billion investment for climate action and clean energy small

/22nd April 2021, EIB/  € 3.4 billion of new financing approved today by the European Investment Bank (EIB) will accelerate shift towards renewable energy and sustainable transport, corporate innovation, improved housing, education and communications. “The green transformation of the global economy gathers speed. The green energy and sustainable transport projects approved by the EIB, the EU’s climate bank, today demonstrate the vision, ambition and partnership needed to slash greenhouse gas emissions this decade and beyond. I am thrilled that this week the European Union agreed to be climate-neutral by 2050. Tomorrow President Biden will host world leaders and renew the shared determination to fight the climate crisis. The return by the US to the community of countries committed to the Paris Agreement goals and to climate action is hugely welcome news, an essential and urgent step toward multiplying the effect of individual actions through global cooperation”, said Werner Hoyer, President of the European Investment Bank.

Europe Net Metering and Self Consumption Solar Photovoltaic PV Market Outlook 2020 2030 small

/22nd March 2020, RENEWABLE MARKET WATCHTM/ The current levels of dependence on fossil fuels, the need of reducing the carbon emissions associated with energy use and the prospects of developing a new and highly innovative European technology sector make distributed solar photovoltaic energy generation increasingly attractive. To understand how we may unlock the self-generation potential, the analysis Europe Net Metering and Self-Consumption Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Market Outlook 2021 – 2030 has been conducted with primary research, interviews, first-class sources of information, case studies and desk research. Based on our findings, the study drew conclusions and recommendations on developing a more comprehensive policy and regulatory framework for residential and commercial prosumers. Today, renewable energy sources have become a significant contributor to the energy transition occurring in Europe. According to the EU Green Deal, substantial fossil fuel capacity needs faster decommissioning to ensure that the EU reduces carbon-intensive power plants by 2030. The rate of replacement of carbon-intensive energy sources by renewable energy to date has already resulted in GHG emissions reductions in the EU electricity sector. Residential and commercial prosumers installing rooftop and building-integrated (BIPV) solar photovoltaic systems and energy storage shall have a vital role in the European clean energy transition by 2030.
