What Makes Solar-Plus-Storage Projects Successful for an Innovation Tender?

Free Webinar

Tuesday, November 03, 2020 | 11:00am–12:00am CET | Webinar Language: German

This year the Federal Network Agency has for the first time carried out a so-called innovation tender with a volume of 650 MW. 133 bids with a volume of 1,095 MW were received, so the tender was almost twice oversubscribed. A total of 73 bids with a volume of 677 MW were accepted. Of these, 394 MW were accounted for by 28 plant combinations, 27 of which were combinations of solar plants with storage tanks. Which combination projects were successful, and why? The smarter E webinar "What makes solar and storage projects successful in the innovation tender" shows background information and analyses. Because the next innovation call for proposals will be in September 2021!

During the webinar participants can submit their questions to get them answered by the experts in the live Q&A. In addition, both the recording and the speakers' presentations are made available to all registrants after the webinar.
