PHOTOVOLTAIC POWER PLANTS
PHOTOVOLTAIC POWER PLANTS IN ITALY
With 8.6 MW of installed capacity, Italy is one of the most important locations in the PV-Invest portfolio. Already in 2009, the first Italian PV-Invest power plant “Lequile II” was acquired. Good solar irradiation values in combination with high feed-in tariffs form the basis for the attractiveness of Italy as a photovoltaic location. 20-year state feed-in tariffs guarantee the lasting success of these investments. Italy already covers 9% of its electricity needs from photovoltaic electricity.
Given the rapid development of PV capacities within a short space of time, Italy opted to stop the feed-in tariff subsidies for new plants a few years ago. This led to an increase in the value of existing PV power plants in Italy.

PHOTOVOLTAIC POWER PLANTS IN SLOVENIA
Slovenia with its location on the southern end of the Alps has excellent conditions for photovoltaic power plants. The southern part of the country in particular enjoys good levels of sunshine. Feed-in tariffs were agreed for 15 years. New feed-in tariffs will no longer be granted, which is why PV-Invest acquires existing photovoltaic power plants with still applicable tariffs. PV-Invest operates PV power plants in Slovenia as community investment projects under the Moja elektrarna brand (www.mojaelektrarna.si).

PHOTOVOLTAIC POWER PLANTS IN BULGARIA
In Bulgaria, PV-Invest operates two photovoltaic power plants with an output of 5.5 MW. Bulgaria had a narrow time frame for attractive investments in PV power plants, an opportunity PV-Invest took advantage of in building and operating these two facilities.

PHOTOVOLTAIC POWER PLANTS IN HUNGARY
During 2018, PV-Invest has completed 3 Mwp PV-installations in Hungary. The total envisaged PV-capacity in this country is targeted with 6-7 MWp to be completed by the end of 2019, bringing PV-Invest into a serious market position in this relatively new PV-market.

PHOTOVOLTAIC POWER PLANTS IN GERMANY
In 2015, PV-Invest in Oberempfenbach, Bavaria, built its first German photovoltaic power plant with a capacity of 3.6 MW. Despite no longer being the global market leader, Germany is still by far the largest PV market in Europe. Even if the sunshine levels are not comparable with Italy’s, Germany still provides the required stability in the country portfolio. Subsidised feed-in tariffs for 20 years enable the corporate strategy to be given direction in the long term.

PHOTOVOLTAIC POWER PLANTS IN IRAN
330 days of sunshine a year and a well-developed electricity network make Iran one of the most attractive future markets for photovoltaics. In 2017, PV-Invest commissioned its first PV power plant with 1.2 MWp in the south of the country. The investment is additionally hedged by Österreichische Kontrollbank (OeKB) in terms of political risk.

PHOTOVOLTAIC POWER PLANTS IN MACEDONIA
As part of the strategic portfolio diversification, the market entry was made by the end of 2016 with the purchase of an existing 1 MW PV power plant. The company’s activities in Macedonia include photovoltaic and small hydropower plants.

POWER PLANTS IN BOSNIA HERZEGOVINA
In Bosnia Herzegovina, the focus of PV-Invest is primarily on small hydropower. At present, most of the country’s electricity production is still coal, which is why the use of renewable energies leads to considerable CO2 savings.

PHOTOVOLTAIC POWER PLANTS IN FRANCE
Although France is not one of the core countries of PV-Invest, two smaller PV power plants have already been built. These two power plants were expanded by another 200 kWp in 2017. As the electricity feed-in tariffs in France are guaranteed by the state for 20 years, further projects will follow in this lucrative market.

Community Investment PV Power Plants
PV – Invest also offers the model of community investment in the group. This enables members of the community to invest in solar facilities, even with small amounts, and become co-owners of a PV power plant themselves.
