EDPR has actually been granted with a grid connection in a floating solar public auction in Portugal.

The company has actually safeguarded 70MVA of grid connection capacity at Alqueva for a period of 15 years, which is expected to permit it to mount approximately 154MW of renewable capacity.

The grid connection capacity is expected to enable EDPR to mount as much as 154MW of renewable capacity, consisting of 70MW of floating solar PV under the contracts for difference it has been awarded.

It also permits 14MW of solar overcapacity as well as 70MW of hybrid wind capacity, both excluded from the CfD.

The project is estimated to be operational in 2025.

This strategy incorporates the optimization of grid connection as well as hybridisation of sustainable technologies to promote the acceleration of the power change, EDPR claimed.
