Two projects developed by Energía Aljaval have been preliminary awarded by the Energy Secretary in the third long-term Energy Auction in Mexico

The Energy Secretary (SENER) published on November 22th the definitive results of the evaluation process based on the Economical Offers submitted by the participants in the Third Long-Term Auction. The average Price for clean energy has been established around US Dollars 20.57, what is representing one of the lower prices worldwide.

Within the awarded projects has been included two big projects developed by Energia Aljaval. 125MW PV project located in Sonora State and 104MW PV project located in Zacatecas State, these projects would be signing in the upcoming months a PPA with Comision Federal de la Electricidad (CFE) for selling the energy produced during the next 15 years and the Energy Clean Cetificates for the next 20 years.

There have been a lot of companies participating and at the end there were 46 companies that submitted the economical offer. At the end it has been selected 16 projects, of which 11 are solar PV projects.

The target provided from SENER was achieved reaching between all the offers the next figures for each year:

  • 5.49 millions of MWh, energy
  • 5.95 millions of Green Energy Certificates (GECs), and
  • 593 MW-year of Power.

That is fulfilling within 90.2% of the Energy purchasing offer, 97.8% of the GECs purchasing offer and 41.9% of the Power purchasing offer.

Regarding the awarded projects, 55.35% of the Energy and 58.31% of the GECs would be provided by solar PV projects. That means that the projects developed by Energía Aljaval are representing about a 14% with regards of the awarded solar projects in this Mexican tender. The rest of the energy and GECs would be provided through wind projects.

The awarded projects add a combined capacity of 2,562 MW, what means 15 new power plants awarded in this tender and with an approximate investment of 2,369 Millions of USD in the next 3 years.

Solar PV in Africa

The business case for PV in Africa is stronger than ever thanks to rapidly declining technology costs, according to a new report released by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA). »Solar PV in Africa: Costs and Markets«, estimates that installed costs for power generated by utility-scale solar PV projects in Africa have decreased as much as 61% since 2012. Today, installed costs for these projects are as low as $1.30 per watt in Africa, compared to the global average of $1.80 per watt. »In recent years, solar PV costs have dropped dramatically and will continue to do so with further declines of up to 59 per cent possible in the next ten years,« said IRENA Director-General Adnan Z. Amin.

Global capacity additions for solar PV have increased six-fold since 2009, a trend that is now beginning to materialize in Africa. More than 800 new MW of solar PV capacity was added in Africa in 2014 – doubling the continents cumulative capacity – and another 750 MW was added in 2015, finds the report. IRENA estimates that with the right enabling policies, Africa could be home to more than 70 GW of solar PV capacity by 2030.

Argentina Clean-Power Auction Attracts Proposals for 6 Gigawatts

Renewable energy developers in Argentina applied to sell 6,366 megawatts of power in an October auction, more than six times the amount the government plans to sell.

Wind farms accounted for more than half, or 3,478 megawatts of capacity, according to Sebastian Kind, undersecretary for renewable energy at the Argentina’s Energy Ministry. Solar projects represented 2,834 megawatts, while biogas and biomas each had 53 megawatts.

“I’ve never expected 6,000 megawatts,” Energy Minister Juan Jose Aranguren told reporters in Buenos Aires on Monday. “The first round of our program meets our goal to diversify the energy mix, having new energy costs so that we have enough to power the country’s development, and to reduce the impact of these activities on climate change.”.

President Mauricio Macri has made renewable energy development one of his government’s main priorities since taking office in December by establishing new regulations and organizing auctions. The government expects to attract…
