“WINNERS OF THE PV AUCTION '2016-2017-2018”
NEW DATABASE OF PHOTOVOLTAIC COMPANIES FROM THREE AUCTIONS
As reported by IEO in last year's report "Photovoltaic Market in Poland '2018" at the end of 2020, the total installed capacity in photovoltaics according to current trends could amount to approx. 1.2 GW, taking into account both the auction system and other models of PV installation. But because of the potential short investment cycles and projects in progress, it would be possible to achieve even 3.2 GW of PV power sources.
So far held three auctions of renewable energy (photovoltaic installations), within which won a total of 990 PV projects belonging to 549 companies, and their total capacity is nearly 0.9 GW.
- I Auction (AZ / 3/2016) - December 30, 2016.
- II Auction (AZ / 1/2017) - June 29, 2017.
- III Auction (AZ / 9/2018) - November 15, 2018
The figure below shows a comparison of the number of projects and companies won and project power for individual auctions for PV installations.
In the opinion of IEO, the 3rd Auction from November 2018 will definitely bring in the most real projects from the previous ones (it is estimated that the total capacity of the projects won will exceed 500 MW). So who are the winners of this auction? Based on the results of the auction, the Institute for Renewable Energy prepared an update of the database of companies "Winners of the PV auction '2016-2017-2018". The new database includes information about who won the Auction on November 15, 2018, which companies are the owners or co-owners of the winning companies, along with information on the management of these companies. The database also includes winners from the first and second auctions and a comparison of the results of all the auctions and winning companies. Taking into account the currently changing market for photovoltaic projects, where more and more investors are choosing to buy projects after the auction, the database "Winners of the PV auction '2016-2017-2018" may be useful for investors who want to increase the portfolio of their investments for "secure" projects with guaranteed auction support.
The total amount of electricity contracted in the November auction from photovoltaic and wind sources with a capacity below 1 MW was approx. 8.2 TWh, and its value nearly PLN 2.9 million. Auctions in the basket for "small" solar and wind farm projects won 554 offers submitted by 251 manufacturers, among which there were several wind energy companies. The number of winning auction entities from 2018 is similar to the number from the 2nd Auction, however, the number of projects won in the 3rd Auction is much higher than in the 2nd Auction (this means that more and more entities submit several offers). The average price at which the manufacturer decided to sell electricity from photovoltaic power plants is 352 PLN / MWh. In comparison with the averages from previous auctions, it can be noticed that the price for energy from solar sources is the lowest from previous ones, but similar to the price from the first auction.
The chart below presents a price comparison for PV projects in auctions of prizes and reference prices, taking into account the plans of the Ministry of Energy regarding the auction in 2019.
Some companies took part in previous auctions, thus expanding their portfolio with new auction projects. The market also includes companies unrelated to previous PV auctions, which have shares in the winning companies.
In order to learn more about the companies that won in all auctions for electricity from RES for photovoltaic sources, as well as companies and people who own them, we encourage you to read the latest update of the base of companies "Winners of the PV auction '2016-2017-2018"
