Russia is making plans to reduce solar’s share in the country’s upcoming auctions for renewable energy projects. Of an additional 1 GW of capacity to be added in 2018, the major part will go to wind energy projects, leaving just 57 MW to PV.
Late last month, Poland held its second renewable energy auction, open to solar, wind and hydro power projects. 472 new projects were awarded, with a maximum size of 1 MW per project. As expected, solar received the largest share.
