Soitec’s CPV technology selected in more than 10 new solar power plant projects in France
With the recent announcement of the winning bids of the second call for tenders from the French Energy Regulatory Commission (CRE, Commission de Régulation de l’Energie) for the creation and operation of solar power plants with installed capacity of more than 250 kWc, Soitec, the world leader in semi-conductor materials for electronics and energy, sees its concentrator photovoltaic (CPV) modules included in 80% of the projects selected.
Construction of the projects that have just been selected should be completed by spring of 2016
Published in March 2013, the CRE’s second call for tenders calls for allocation of a volume of 20 MWc for ground plants exclusively based on CPV technology, plus a volume of 80 MWc for ground plants based on at least 50% on CPV, with a total minimum of 60 MWc allocated to CPV technology.
