Market study ´ENABLING PV in Russia´ published

Eclareon, together with the German Solar Association (BSW-Solar) and the Russian section of EUROSOLAR, has examined the potential of solar power generation in Russia in recent months. Here, possible applications were analyzed using the example of the two Russian regions of Krasnodar and Kaliningrad, workshops were held in both regions and possible projects were calculated. Now the results of the project funded by the Federal Foreign Office are available in the form of a study.

The analysis focused on the potential of medium-sized solar parks, PV-diesel hybrid power plants and small rooftop systems. One result of the analysis is that several applications in the south of Russia can already be economically exploited today. The most interesting aspect economically from today is to supplement diesel generators with solar power systems and reduce diesel consumption accordingly. Possible fields of application are, for example, agriculture and tourism.
