Transitioning to a New Era for Renewables in Central & Eastern Europe

Large Scale Solar Central and Eastern Europe

We covered a huge amount of ground in this year’s event, and it was encouraging to see the number of organisations who are now turning their attention to the region and the opportunities for growth.

Challenges still exist, and some such as connections to the grid were more prominent than others – featuring prominently in the discussions – but progress is undeniable. Technologies to reduce CAPEX costs featured heavily alongside new financial models – particularly PPA. However, many of the trends that came up featured topics of more mature markets, including ESG and governance and co-locating storage and solar showing that the CEE market is developing rapidly.

Next year’s Large Scale Solar CEE Summit promises to be even bigger as the industry grows and develops, and I am looking forward to seeing you there to share in your successes

As the market moves away from power purchase agreements, the possibility for a new breed of investors comfortable with market risk is emerging alongside the potential for some larger investors to bring trading in-house.
While recent solar auctions in Spain and Portugal have made headlines with low prices and high levels of participation, the power purchase agreement market will be key to helping both countries reach their 2030 solar deployment targets, it was suggested during a panel discussion.
Solar industry players should collaborate with governments and regulators to overcome floating PV permitting and bankability issues and unlock the potential of the technology in Europe, a panel has concluded.
With gigawatt+ markets in Poland (1.4 GW), Bulgaria (1.1 GW), Hungary (2.1 GW) and Romania (1.4 GW) according to SolarPower Europe figures, Central and Eastern Europe presents a huge solar opportunity through to 2025.
