Image of post in post detailed view

The French Ministry of Ecological Transition has released the findings of the fourth installment of the P rogrammation Pluriannuelle de l'Energie PPE2 ground-mounted PV tender series. A total capacity of 1,519 MW, the largest amount awarded since the French energy regulator Commission de régulation de l'énergie (CRE) started conducting the tenders, was granted to 129 projects. The tender was open to PV projects ranging in size from 500 kW to 5 MW. The minimum carbon footprint was set at 200 kg CO2 eq/kW and the maximum at 550 kg CO2 eq/kW. The commissioning time was extended from 24—30 months. The procurement process concluded with an average price of €0.0824 ($0.0868) per kWh. According to consulting firm Finergreen, 39 developers were identified among the winners and 22 secured less than 20 MW. The next tender, to be held on November 20, 2023, by CRE, will have a capacity of 925 MW. In April, the French government announced two tenders: one for 1.5 GW of ground-mounted PV and another for 800 MW of rooftop capacity. These tenders were launched to address the high failure rate of the previous round of tenders for large-scale PV plants. The tender for rooftop PV for commercial and industrial buildings was concluded with an average price of €0.10195 (US$0.1074) per kilowatt-hour.
