The digital transformation of energy increases the competitiveness of PV plants

FuturENERGY April-May 2020

ABB is committed to the energy transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy in Europe by developing and manufacturing smart products, in this case supplying electrification solutions for two new PV plants that are being constructed in Spain. The ABB equipment supplied to these solar plants simplifies the energy distribution systems, reducing investments in material and improving their productivity, reliability and cost-effectiveness. In short, these solutions enable the digital transformation of energy, providing more competitiveness at 500 MW of solar power generation.

This is the case of projects that Solarcentury is constructing in Extremadura and Andalusia. Having closed its financial year in November 2019 after signing an innovative PPA that covers the purchase price of approximately 75% of the production volume, the company’s projects are respectively: the 300 MWp Talayuela Solar, situated in Talayuela (Cáceres); and the 200 MWp Cabrera Solar, located in Alcalá de Guadaira (Seville).
