Renewables Now:

Renewables company European Energy A/S has secured local council permission to install what it says will be the largest solar photovoltaic (PV) park in Denmark and in Northern Europe.

The company’s project for a 300-MW solar complex was approved by the municipality of Aabenraa, Southern Jutland region, with a “massive majority,” the developer said on Wednesday. Its proposal will require a total investment of over DKK 1 billion (USD 157.5m/EUR 134.3m).

The PV farm is planned to be built near Kasso, in proximity to future data centres and a major regional transformer station. Its construction is slated to begin early next year, while the power plant is scheduled to start feeding electricity to the grid before the end of 2021.

Once up and running, the solar farm will be capable of producing enough electricity for over 75,000 Danish homes. Its output will help offset 1110,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions annually.
