Slovakia launches first renewables auction

Slovakia’s Ministry of Economy has floated the country’s first technology-neutral, large-scale renewable energy auction. Through the pilot procurement round, the government aims to allocate 30 MW of power generation capacity. Successful projects will secure 15-year feed-in premium payments on top of the wholesale electricity price. As per the tender guidelines, the size of solar projects to be bid should range from 100 kW to 2 MW. Non-PV facilities must be at least 500 kW in scale and can go up to 10 MW each. A ceiling price of Euro 0.08498 per kWh has been set for the electricity generated by solar and wind power projects with other clean energy technologies set a maximum tariff of Euro 0.10680 per kWh. Slovakian state-owned energy company Slovenskýplynárenskýpriemysel will buy the electricity generated. Developers have until April 30, 2020 to submit bids.
