The Ministry of Infrastructure and Energy in Albania has announced on Monday that it has received 10 new expressions of interest for the construction of photovoltaic parks in the country.

The requirements of various companies for the construction of these plants have been numerous throughout the summer after the approval of tariffs that the government will apply. The price of 100 euros per MWh for the purchase of electricity and various support schemes has caused many to run after the renewable resources.

Although so far, all requests have come for solar photovoltaic plants and none for the Wind Farm plants.

Fier and Lushnja areas have also received the most numerous applications, 5 only in the latest announcement, but added dozens of other requests since August. Along with the high level of irradiance supply throughout the year, and good flat terrain is a factor that has caused Myzeqeja Region to emerge in the demands of private investors.

In the Darëzezë area in Fier region, company SOLAR RENEWABLE ENERGY seeks to utilize 3.6 hectares of land to install a 2MW plant. The value of the investment amounts to 1.7 million euros.

Again  the company “Favina 1” wants to repeat the same investment in the Korca region. In Korça, a similar investment is required by the companies “HIDROCENTRALI QARR & KALTANJ”, as well as “REJ” sh.a.
