Photo­vol­ta­ics

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.
