The solar power plants received a big announcement: the second round of applications has started

By RockedBuzz 7 Min Read

What is the level of the new announcement?

It was revealed in parallel with one another Ministry of Energy and the system supervisor Mavir, that the second publication and joint demand evaluation process started on November 30 (detailed details about the present free capacities and the technical and anticipated financial circumstances for becoming a member of). We arrived at this in such a manner that the announcement ought to have been made till November 11 after three postponements by the authorities, however a authorities choice the different day postponed the begin of the process to at the moment.

In the new process, distributors can apply for a assured connection ranging from 2029, and Mavir may even maintain a discussion board on the subject on December 14. On the foundation of the submitted requests, the distributors and the system supervisor decide the crucial community developments in the following years, and thus the processes develop into extra planable.

Important data concerning the second process:

  • According to our data, much like the first process, the alternative to use will now be open for 20 days.
  • We know that the already acquainted safety system shall be legitimate in the second process as nicely.
  • In order to keep up safety of provide, it’s a acknowledged objective, and even inevitable, to protect non-weather-dependent manufacturing capacities and to ascertain new ones.
  • From 2029, it’s doable to acquire a assured feed-in capability, however as the two bulletins point out, there shall be an acceleration lane for controllable standard power plants and storage if they aren’t fed into the grid throughout peak intervals of solar vitality manufacturing.
  • An necessary new piece of data is that these homeowners of solar power plants who’ve obtained the proper in the first publication process (see beneath) and who want to join sooner than the date of 2028, can obtain this in the event that they make their mission not depending on the climate for the obtained capability by altering know-how, so for instance the solar power plant battery storage is put in subsequent to it, or they change to a fuel engine, biomass or biogas power plant. It can be necessary that in the change of know-how they can’t enhance the already acquired capability throughout manufacturing.
  • It can be necessary that traders who have been capable of join earlier than the first round can submit a connection request for brand spanking new gear with out extra feed-in capability exterior of the publication process.

How are we now in the area of solar power plants and what are the prospects?

Solar power plant capacities are displaying a very sharp rise this yr, since in the first ten months of 2023 the whole put in capability of home solar power plants and solar programs elevated by greater than 1,500 megawatts. Just to point out this, it would not harm to document: since August, this yr’s enlargement has been persistently better than the progress achieved in the entire of final yr’s document yr. In reality, from January to the starting of November, extra capability was in-built Hungary than the whole till 2020.

All which means the quantity of solar power plants’ put in capacities is at present greater than 5,500 MW, of which about 3,300 MW is the mixed capability of industrial-sized (over 50 kW) and about 2,200 MW of small household-sized power plants.

This is how we proceed in phrases of put in solar power plant capacities:

  • About 3,300 MW of the initiatives that acquired the proper to attach earlier than the first publication process shall be linked yearly between 2024-2027 in a roughly proportionally distributed measurement, so it will enhance the put in capability by practically 1 GW per yr from the outset.
  • During the first publication process, which resulted in September and resulted in a critical drop-out, 127 solar power plants have been lastly granted the proper to hook up with a date ranging from the finish of 2028, with a mixed put in capability of 1,588 MW. In addition, 287 MW of storage might be created inside the framework of 63 initiatives, so the mixed storage capability can enhance tenfold.
  • At the second, as a result of final fall’s residential solar connection rush, roughly 1,000 MW of capability continues to be being built-in into the community in the HMKE phase.
  • With the residential Solar Energy Plus Program beginning in January, which is able to collectively assist the manufacturing and storage of inexperienced vitality in the gross accounting system, the quantity of residential solar panel capacities will proceed to extend.

The above means 5500+3300+1588+1000 MW solar power plant capability positively anticipated till 2028, i.e. no less than 11 GW, and industrial items producing for their very own functions (reverse wattage programs), extra residential capacities, and initiatives showing in the second publication process can entry this. The assured connection of the latter is just doable from 2029, as was additionally the case with the new wind farm initiatives primarily based on yesterday’s indication.

Because of all this, the ministry’s assertion says that

along with family solar programs, the whole capability of 12 gigawatts focused for 2040 in the National Energy Strategy could also be out there a decade earlier, by 2030.
