Hungarian 150MW solar power plant project obtains $125m investment proposal

With the EU raising the price of lignite in an effort to reduce greenhouse gases and fight against climate change, the Hungarian government has decided to turn toward renewable energy as a source of power. With a view to increasing solar panels from 500MW to 30,000MW by 2022, Hungary is seeking to step away from coal and other fossil fuels towards more sustainable energy sources.

The 150MW (megawatt) project will be split into three groundmounted 50MW solar plants in targeted areas of the country using the best available solar PV technology on the market. These solar plants will then feed into the national grid as energy security and diversification of sources has become a priority issue within the country, and the EU at large.

This solar project is a perfect fit in Capital Corp’s ongoing Green Energy Initiative, which has been active for well over a decade.

Mr Gilles Herard, Jr, Capital Corp Merchant Banking’s Managing Director, structured the funding proposal for this project.

Most of Hungary’s power demand is met through importation, and the country’s National Energy Strategy aims to increase its share of renewable sources of energy. This project will dovetail into the country’s efforts to reduce energy dependency and increase efficiency through the use of renewables, among others.

A consensus statement establishes the protocols to assess and report stability of perovskite photovoltaic devices
Moscow, Russia (SPX) Feb 03, 2020
The existing characterization procedures to evaluate emerging photovoltaic devices are not appropriate for halide perovskite solar cells, a new generation of solar cells called to overcome the present state-of-the-art technologies. A vast group of scientists with Prof. Pavel A. Troshin representing Skoltech has reached a consensus on the suitable procedures and the variables to be reported in stability studies of this kind of solar cells. The consensus statement, highlighted in the last issue of N … read more
