June 29, 2021

PV Tech:

Solar PV bidders picked up around 2.2GW of capacity in Poland’s latest renewables auctions, the country’s Energy Regulatory Office (URE) has announced.

An initial auction for projects with a capacity larger than 1MW contracted nearly 24.7TWh of electricity and will result in the development of PV plants with a combined capacity of more than 1.2GW as well as onshore wind farms totalling 300MW. The lowest solar bid was PLN0.209/kWh (US$0.05538/kWh).

Another auction for plants up to 1MW sold 11.9TWh of energy, with solar bidders securing all available capacity. The auction, which saw a lowest bid of PLN0.207/kWh (US$0.05485/kWh), will lead to the construction of solar projects with a total capacity of almost 1GW.

Due to the large number of bids submitted in the auction for smaller projects, winning bidders were selected not only based on the offered prices, but also the order in which bids were submitted.
