Portugal in energy storage push as PV auction calendar builds

The Portugal’s PV auctions in mid-2019 and early 2020 will offer up 1.35GW and 700MW, respectively.

According to PV-Tech News, Portugal is to kickstart its energy storage sector by arranging its first ever dedicated auction next year, PV Tech can reveal.

João Galamba, secretary of state of energy, told this publication of plans to tender 50-100MW worth of capacity for dispatchable renewables in 2020, at a date that has yet to be decided.

The energy storage drive comes as the socialist government of prime minister António Costa works to deliver a boom of solar PV, whose contribution last year (1.5% of national power use) was far outstripped by wind (23%).
Two PV-specific auctions this year and next will lay the foundations of Portugal’s plan, which requires boosting PV capacity from 572MW in 2018 to 1.6GW by 2021 and 8.1GW-9.9GW by 2030. ——————–***——————–
