OPDE given green light for 10.8 MW UK solar farm

first_imgOPDE given green light for 10.8 MW UK solar farmThe Spanish solar group will further broaden its growing UK presence with the completion of this latest solar plant in southern England. September 29, 2014 Ian Clover Installations Manufacturing Markets Markets & Policy Share Spain’s OPDE has been granted approval to develop a new 10.8 MW solar PV farm in the English county of Somerset, augmenting the company’s U.K. solar footprint in the process. Planning consent was granted today for the development of the solar farm, close to the town of Crewkerne. Earlier this year OPDE successfully connected a 12 MW solar plant in Alresford, Hampshire, and is also due to begin construction a 7 MW solar farm in Kent and a 9 MW PV project in East Sussex. The company has targeted the growing U.K. market in recent months and has been eager to push through these latest large-scale solar PV projects ahead of the proposed subsidy cut planned for next year. April 1, 2015 sees the removal of the Renewable Obligation Certificate (ROC) for solar PV plants greater in size than 5 MW. This change in funding will make large-scale solar development in the U.K. less attractive. Its replacement, the Contracts for Difference (CfD) scheme, has a much smaller pot of funds from which the industry can draw, and will serve to suppress the large-scale solar sector at a time when the industry is soaring. Nevertheless, OPDE plans to install more than 200 MW of solar PV capacity in the U.K. over the next few years, and also has bold plans to develop projects in the emerging Latin American markets of Brazil and Mexico.Popular content The Hydrogen Stream: 20 MW green hydrogen plant in Finland, two Australian projects move forward Sergio Matalucci 20 April 2021 pv-magazine.com Storegga, Shell and Harbour Energy want to set up a 20 MW blue hydrogen production facility in the U.K. Australia’s Origin Energy wants to build a hy… Enabling aluminum in batteries Mark Hutchins 27 April 2021 pv-magazine.com Scientists in South Korea and the UK demonstrated a new cathode material for an aluminum-ion battery, which achieved impressive results in both speci… ITRPV: Large formats are here to stay Mark Hutchins 29 April 2021 pv-magazine.com The 2021 edition of the International Technology Roadmap for Photovoltaics (ITRPV) was published today by German engineering association VDMA.

Cristiano Ronaldo vows to come back stronger after injury

first_imgCristiano Ronaldo said Monday that he intends to come back stronger for the upcoming season despite the injury he sustained while playing for Portugal in their victorious Euro 2016 final.The Real Madrid striker, who played a key part in leading his country to a maiden major title, limped off in tears with a knee injury in the first half of the final against hosts France earlier this month. The 31-year-old has a sprained ligament in his left knee, and Spanish sports daily Marca reported that he is unlikely to return to action before Real’s third game of the domestic La Liga season. “Hi everyone! I just wanted to thank all my fans,” Ronaldo said in a video on his Instagram account. “I wanted to tell them that all is well and that I will come back much stronger.Thank you, long live Portugal!” After suffering the initial injury, the three-time Ballon D’Or winner tried to play on but had to be replaced in the 25th minute, before striker Eder grabbed the only goal of the game in extra time.last_img read more
