November 2 (Renewables Now) - Chinese distributed energy investor Unisun Energy Group is initiating construction work on a 11.6-MW solar power plant in Hungary.
The ground-mounted facility is being built in the village of Tiszaszolos and is the first phase of a larger project that could be expanded in the future to at least 50 MW, according to a company announcement. Upon completion, the plant will benefit from the country’s feed-in tariff (FiT) scheme, known as KAT.
The combined installed capacity of Hungary’s solar power plants has increased to 129 MW since 2015 and it is expected to continue to rise by 59 MW on average a year, Unisun said in a statement.
The Chinese company has been involved in projects around the world with a combined capacity surpassing 1 GW and is now looking to aggressively develop renewable energy projects in Europe.
