Sep 4 (Renewables Now) - A total of 5,575 MW of solar and wind power assets have changed hands in August, Green Dealflow says in its monthly transaction activity report.
Green Dealflow, an online marketplace for wind and solar projects, maintains a transaction database tracks equity transactions of solar and wind projects around the globe and below is a short overview of the activity in August.
In the solar industry, the report records 22 transactions amounting to approximately 1,700 megawatts, an increase of 12 transactions and approximately 1 gigawatt compared to July. The United States remains the country with the largest transaction activity, accounting for almost half of all transactions. While a larger number of operating assets were transacted, development- and construction-phase assets constitute the largest share of transaction activity by MW transacted. Compared to July, both buyers and sellers are reasonably diversified. Most buyers are financial investors.
The wind industry, unlike the solar industry, saw a decrease in both number of transactions and total megawatt transacted compared to July. The United Kingdom and the United States still constitute the largest share of transactions and megawatts transacted, however, to a lesser extent than they did in July. Most assets transacted and megawatts transacted are in operation.
