Portugal has now fired the starting pistol of a solar tender it had been forced to delay by the COVID-19 crisis, amid plans to declare the winners by the end of the summer.

The 700MW solar auction initially due to launch in the spring kicked off instead on 8 June, with a Portuguese Energy Ministry spokesperson telling PV Tech that applications will be accepted until 31 July 2020.

Having launched the two-month qualification phase today, the government expects actual, hard bidding to begin around the last week of August, the spokesperson said, adding: “The auction solar winners are likely to be known in the very first days of September.”

The tender includes an option for energy storage to be added to project proposals.
