Cutting Poland’s CO2 with subsidy-free solar and a VPPA

Around 80% of Poland’s energy needs are currently met from coal-fired generation – however there is a huge and growing appetite for renewables, particularly from the commercial and industrial sectors.

These businesses are attracted by the competitiveness of new renewable generation technologies as well as requests for improved green credentials from their stakeholders. With extensive experience in developing large-scale subsidy-free solar projects, BayWa r.e. was keen to be part of the country’s energy transition.

Solar powering Western Australia’s remote homes

Delivering a safe and secure power supply to a region that covers an electricity network of around 100,000km and consists of some 800,000 power poles is a challenging task for any utility. 

Over the last couple of years, Western Power has embarked on a mission to improve the power supply service to customers in this remote part of Australia, which are usually fed by long power lines.

These can sometimes stretch for 100s of kilometres and serve just a handful of customers. Currently, 50% of Western Power’s overhead distribution network serves less than 3% of the region’s population – a network that is exposed to the extremes of weather and prone to frequent outages.

Western Power felt there had to be a better way of delivering electricity to customers in a reliable, safe way. The company undertook an initial trial supported by BayWa r.e., to test the viability of installing utility-grade stand-alone power systems (SPS) comprising solar panels, power electronics, batteries and back-up generators, and is now rolling out the trial more widely to hundreds of homes.

Solar installations bear fruit for Netherlands Agri-PV

Fruit growing is an important part of the Netherlands’ agricultural sector, with the climate lending itself to a range of crops, from raspberries and strawberries to apples and pears. 

However, the same climate also comes with its own challenges for fruit farmers, who need to protect their crops from extremes of weather such as hail, rain and strong direct sunlight. And these extreme weather events are predicted to increase due to climate change.    

Historically, the structures used to protect fruit crops often succumb to the ravages of weather or to daily wear and tear, with regular replacement and disposal required. A process which can be expensive and time consuming for farmers.

Repowering the local community

At BayWa r.e. we’ve always seen the future of renewable energy schemes placed firmly in the hands of the communities that benefit from them.

So, when the German region of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern brought in the Citizens and Municipalities Participation Act in May 2016, we saw this as a fantastic opportunity to start future-proofing our processes and get local citizens involved. 

The act states that wind farm developments in the area must offer at least 20 per cent of shares to people living in the immediate vicinity and to the local municipality, so we reviewed our timelines and sought to bring them in on the project as early as possible.

An industry first for service standards

The ongoing operations management and maintenance of renewable energy plants is crucial to ensuring they operate at peak efficiency. 

A skilled service provider will make the difference between an underperforming plant and one that achieves optimised outputs and higher yields.

But all service providers are not the same. And in a rapidly evolving market where digitalisation is transforming what service providers can offer, investors and owners of renewable energy plants need to make sure they have the very best partners in place. 

To provide transparency and give plant owners confidence they are working with the very best, SolarPower Europe brought together leading service providers to form the Operation & Maintenance (O&M) Task Force.

Their mission? To create an industry first – the Solar O&M Best Practices Mark.
