“2022 has shown us the extent to which war, climate crisis and uncertainty in energy supply impact on modern society” said Sunotec CEO Bernhard Suchland. “At the same time, it has become clear what a positive difference the solar industry can make.”
Founder and CEO Kaloyan Velichkov added that such enormous growth in a relatively short time is only achievable if land for solar plants is used as efficiently as possible and that in the case of solar parks, this ranges from former agricultural fields, where native wild plants are sown between and under the modules for more biodiversity, to the use of land that presents natural obstacles to farming.
“At the Verila solar park in Bulgaria, for example, we have to cope with hilly terrain that is sometimes as steep as 18 degrees” Mr Velichkov said.
Sunotec’s ability to register even greater growth in the number of gigawatts installed in 2023 depends on factors such as supply chains and approval procedures, according to CEO Bernhard Suchland. The first solar farms to be completed in 2023 include Doellen, Germany (91 MWp), Bubney, United Kingdom (40.4 MWp), Groot Roodehaan, The Netherlands (33.3 MWp). Numerous others are under construction.
