10/2022 – EEPro approaches construction readiness of its 3.22 MWp Stoenesti project in Romania
With the recent decision of the Zoning Plan (“Plan Urbanistic Zonal” in Romanian), EEPro has overcome one of the most significant hurdles in the development of the 3.22 MWp project, Stoenesti, in Olt County, Romania. Thus, the achievement of construction readiness for the project is imminent.
EEPro already operates its own 4 MWp project near the capital city of Bucharest which was built back in 2013, still at the time of the Green Certificate subsidy.
“With the development of the Stoenesti project, we can draw on the valuable experience and contacts gained in Romania in recent years and simultaneously prepare ourselves for the development of significantly larger projects. In particular, we are relying on the recent opening of agricultural areas for ground-mounted systems. For the Stoenesti project, we are now looking forward to entering into an intensive exchange with financing and investing parties in order to implement the project quickly,” comments Kilian Libal, managing partner of EEPro GmbH.
07/2022 – EEPro wins bid for 1.7 MWp project near Leipzig
In the Bundesnetzagentur’s last bid deadline of June 1, 2022, the special-purpose entity of EEPro, EEPro 15th Solarpark Deutschland GmbH & Co. KG, was awarded 5.63 ct/kWh for its 1.7 MWp project Wiesenena, near Leipzig. Thus, the last hurdle has now been cleared, and the realization can begin quickly. The project is being built on a designated commercial area and therefore benefits from a statutory funding mechanism. “For the time being, it is planned to include the project in EEPro’s own portfolio, which will therefore be expanded to around 8 MWp,” says Kilian Libal, managing co-partner of EEPro GmbH.
01/2022 – EEPro starts the new year 2022 with an expanded portfolio
With the 1.5 MWp Sonnenberg solar park on a former landfill near Pasewalk put into operation last year, EEPro GmbH added its fourth project to its portfolio. “Even though the focus of EEPro GmbH is on the development of larger plants, we also take the opportunity to implement smaller plants, which we do not intend to sell, but rather to operate ourselves,” said Clemens Schumacher, managing partner of EEPro GmbH. With the Sonnenberg solar park, the portfolio of the EEPro group increases to about 6 MWp. Solar modules from the manufacturer, Phono Solar, inverters from the manufacturer, Huawei, as well as subframes from the manufacturer, Jurchen, were installed. The investment volume amounted to about 1 million EUR.
12/2021 – EEPro begins development on new PV projects in Romania
With high irradiation and electricity prices, Romania is one of the new target countries for the solar industry. EEPro has been able to build up further valuable experience in plant operation and power trading through its owned and operated 4 MWp project near Bucharest, which was completed while still under the green certificate regime in 2013. With this comprehensive foundation, EEPro is now focusing on the development of further projects in Romania, which will then be operated on a power market or PPA basis. Initial land has already been secured, although this is proving more challenging than expected due to strong regulatory protections on agricultural land and undesignated areas. Therefore, present development is still targeted at projects with a feed-in capacity of less than 10 MWp, for which the grid connection is also easier. However, the aim is to also enter the high-voltage large-scale plant market in the long term.
01/2021 – Construction begins on Sonnenberg Solar Park in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania
In January 2021, construction work has begun on our solar park, located on a former landfill site near Pasewalk. Initially, the first two subprojects (1.5 MWp in total) are to be commissioned in the 2nd quarter of 2021. Solar modules from the manufacturer, Phono Solar, and inverters from the manufacturer, Huawei, will be used. Since the surface of the landfill allows only shallow penetration depths, special screw system from the manufacturer, Jurchen, will be used as a substructure. The electricity produced in the two subprojects will be fed into the public grid of E.DIS AG. The subprojects remain in the portfolio of EEPro GmbH. The investment volume amounts to approximately EUR 1 million.
An extension of this free-field plant is currently in planning, whereby a remuneration of the electricity generated outside of the EEG remuneration system will be taken into account.
09/2020 – Roof system in Zehlendorf goes into operation
On the roofs of a fattening farm in Zehlendorf, Brandenburg, EEPro has put a solar plant with 495 kWp into operation. The electricity generated is fed into the e.dis grid. Solar modules from the manufacturers Phono and Jinko were used. The inverters were supplied by Huawei and the subframes by K2. A common utilization concept was used for the implementation, according to which EEPro committed itself to the renovation of the roof cladding. The system was incorporated into EEPro’s own inventory.
08/2020 – EEPro develops 8.3 MWp open space portfolio in Spain
EEPro has started the development of a ground-mounted portfolio consisting of three sub-systems with a total capacity of 8.3 MWp near Alicante, Spain. The project plots are located in close proximity to each other and will feed into separate medium voltage connection points. The portfolio is expected to be ready for construction in 2021.
07/2020 – EEPro starts project developments in Romania
EEPro secures large project areas along high voltage lines in Romania. Both the good irradiation values, the high electricity trading prices and the now approved PPA market give hope that a subsidy-free solar market can develop in Romania as well. EEPro is able to draw on extensive experience and an excellent network, which it was able to build up due to its existing “Tartasesti” project near Bucharest, with a capacity of 4 MWp.
