This month, the solar industry counts a total of 20 deals closed, with an overall capacity of 2161 MW, more than halving the capacity transacted compared to August. Spain can still be found on the top of the podium, followed by the U.S. and Poland in the amount Megawatts involved.
Among the biggest deals, Glennmont Partners, fund manager in London, acquired a 473-MW portfolio of solar projects in Spain from Grupotec Servicios Avanzados SA. The value of the purchase remains undisclosed. The location of the solar pipeline acquired is in central and southern Spain, to be built using Tier-1 solar technology. Glennmont will be assisted from Grupotec during the construction and operation stages. The power purchase agreements (PPAs) definition is ongoing and contracts will be agreed during the construction stage.
The wind industry comes back from the August standstill with a significant spike in the capacity transacted globally, with 14 deals signed, and a total capacity of 6349 MW, +238% compared to last month. The protagonists for this months have been the U.S., the Netherlands, and Laos.
The most relevant deal in the wind industry saw Iberdrola took over Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP) in regards to the two co-developed wind projects off the U.S. coast, taking its offshore projects to 30% of its total pipeline. Avangrid will pay $167.5 million for 50% stake in an 804 MW project in Connecticut, and up to 1.2 GW project in Massachusetts. The sum of projects, counting additional 800 MW in Massachusetts could drain investment of around $12 billion, the company said. CIP will take over a separate project up to 2.5 GW in the same area.
