Denmark launches a call for tenders as the first in the country to show how low of a price solar power can claim as an energy source. The Danish Energy Agency has officially launched a pilot tender for a total of 20 MW.
The farms will have up to 2.4 MW each and some of them – a portion equivalent to a total of 2.4 MW – can be located in Germany. This international aspect of the tender was dictated by the European Union's discontent with the Danish Public Service Obligation scheme (PSO), which is considered an unfair disadvantage to players from other countries. Germany is, however, in the midst of a similar call for tenders concerning a total of 50 MW, and the generous German state is theoretically willing to place all 50 MW in Denmark.
