Portugal plans to kickstart next month the solar tender it had postponed as the country began its campaign to contain the COVID-19 emergency, the government has confirmed.

Contacted by our sister site PV Tech today, a spokesperson from Portugal’s Environment Ministry said that the 700MW solar auction launch – initially due in late March – will take place instead on 8 June 2020, with plans to reveal the winners by the end of August.

The tender includes an option for energy storage to be added to project proposals, participating on a price competitive basis and with payments for merchant services to be capped to hedge costs for the public purse, as Energy-Storage.news reported back in March as the postponement came to light.
