EDP Renewables (EDPR) started working on its first photovoltaic facility project in the Netherlands.
The project has a capacity exceeding 12 MWp (9.4 MWac). This solar development will offer over 12 GWh of clean energy annually for the Dutch grid.
The photovoltaic facility is set to produce an annual output equivalent to the electricity consumption of more than 4,000 households in the region. Additionally, it will help prevent over 2,000 tons of CO2 emissions each year that would have been generated if the energy was produced using thermal sources. This marks a significant milestone as this facility is the first to supply clean energy to Google under a long-term contract signed in June.
Through acquiring Kronos Solar EDPR, EDP Renewables has expanded into new markets, including the Netherlands and Germany, and has established its presence in 13 European countries. Kronos Solar EDPR has a strong track record of successful projects and a substantial pipeline of projects in various development stages. Recently, the company successfully launched its first solar project in France, located in Neuilly-sur-Seine.
Having exceeded 5.7GW of installed renewable energy capacity in Europe, EDPR is fully committed to supporting the Netherlands in achieving its energy transition goals. The country aims to reduce CO2 emissions by 55% and obtain 75% of its total electricity from renewable sources by 2030, aiming to achieve 27 GW of installed solar energy capacity.
