Development & operation of PV plants in Germany
Building on our decades-long market presence in the field of onshore wind energy in Germany, we are adding photovoltaics to our field of activity and continuing our success story. This includes the conclusion of PV utilisation contracts, the planning, development and construction as well as the operation of large-scale ground-mounted solar farms in the megawatt league under our own management. In addition, as an innovative player for renewable energies, we combine PV projects with suitable storage solutions – including flexible financing options. Direct contracts with electricity consumers (power purchase agreements) are also part of our expertise.
If you own vacant land that is suitable for the realisation of a PV project, we should get to know each other – regardless of whether it is for lease or for sale. Or if you would like to sell a PV project that is currently being developed or has already been completed – in this case, we would also be happy to make you an interesting offer.
Your added bonus: As part of the international EDF Renewables Group, EDF Renewables Germany can draw on many years of experience with regard to the planning, development and construction of PV plants worldwide.
Advantages of Power Purchase Agreements
For some time now, so-called Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) have been the talk of the town. By concluding PPAs, consumers – usually large industrial companies – secure access to electricity from renewable energy sources and thus make themselves independent of price fluctuations on the electricity market over the duration of the PPA.
In the planning and development, as well as the subsequent construction and operation of PV plants, we can provide remuneration for the electricity produced on the basis of PPAs as well as remuneration in accordance with the Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG) – and thus take the project-specific requirements and particularities into account in the best possible way.
Solar energy worldwide
Solar energy is a reliable, low-carbon and increasingly competitive solution for generating electricity from renewable energy sources. The solar market is developing rapidly due to improved technologies and falling production costs. Global capacity increased by a factor of 66 between 2004 (3.7 GW) and 2015 (247 GW), with around 70 GWp of new capacity added in 2016; at the same time, the price of photovoltaic modules has been reduced by 90% in 10 years.
In addition to onshore and offshore wind energy, photovoltaic projects represent another business segment of the EDF Renewables Group worldwide. The company operates PV plants in France and North America and has recently gained a foothold in several growth markets in South America, Asia and the Middle East.
