November 14 (Renewables Now) - The Danish Energy Agency (DEA) has received 15 winning proposals totalling 19 MW in a solar photovoltaic (PV) tender for projects below 1 MW.

The tender was launched in September with the aim to support about 35 MW of projects. According to the released results, published last week, the weighted average price of the winning bids stands at DKK 0.1297 (USD 0.2/EUR 0.017) per kWh, with proposals ranging between DKK 0.1/kWh and DKK 0.149/kWh.

The tender, capped at DKK 0.15 per kWh, will lead to the construction of 19 solar systems and contracts worth DKK 62.2 million. All plants have to be connected to the grid within two years from signing the 20-year contracts.

Overall, DEA received 18 proposals from 11 developers for 21 projects with a combined capacity of 21.1 MW. The latest tender is the first of two scheduled for this autumn. In the second tender, both wind and PV projects will be able to participate.
