Despite concern about the impact of COVID-19 on investment in the solar sector, low technology prices have helped ensure the sector is optimistic.
Elgin Energy has partnered METKA EGN to progress 76MW of solar to energisation.
There is a "huge opportunity" for solar in Ireland, with the Renewable Electricity Support Scheme (RESS) providing a route to market for the technology.
Solar developer Elgin Energy has secured £4.7 million of funding to complete the late-stage development of a 250MW-strong UK solar portfolio.
A 50MW solar farm has been approved at a former RAF airfield, giving Elgin Energy the green light to develop Scotland’s largest consented solar project in the early 2020s.
A consented solar farm risks not being built because of a last-minute planning application for a 20-metre mast to provide an internet connection to the site.
