  • Constructing Bulgaria's first hybrid power facility, the 237-MW Tenevo Solar Park. It will be accompanied by 250 MW of wind turbines and 250 MW/500 MWh of battery storage. A joint investment by Eurowind Energy and Renalfa IPP, it will drive Bulgaria's green transition and provide a strong boost for renewable energy in southeast Europe.
Bulgaria's 237MW Solar Park Starts Construction

Construction has begun on the 237-MW Tenevo Solar Park in Bulgaria, which is the first phase of a large renewable energy complex. The next phase will add 250 MW of wind turbines and 250 MW/500 MWh of battery storage to the solar installation. The joint investment of Danish company Eurowind Energy and Vienna-based Renalfa IPP via the EURA IPP joint venture will be completed in early 2025. Solarpro Holding, a subsidiary of Renalfa, will construct the solar park. This is the first hybrid power generating facility of its kind in the country and one of the biggest and most complex clean energy projects in southeast Europe. It will provide a strong boost for green transition in Bulgaria and is an example of how renewable energy can drive the energy transformation of coal mining regions. Renalfa IPP owns over 450 MW of renewables generation and has another over 1 GW in development and construction.
