February 19 (Renewables Now) - Total Quadran on Tuesday said its joint venture (JV) with renewable power producer Amarenco has won 17 MWp of projects in France’s latest tender for solar photovoltaic (PV) capacity.

Total Quadran, which is the French renewable power production unit of Total SA (EPA:FP), owns 50% of the Energie Developpement JV with Amarenco France. The partnership has grabbed 55 projects in the ninth call for rooftop solar capacity issued by the French Energy Regulatory Commission (CRE). Their award represents 11% of the total allocated volume, Total Quadran said.

Overall, Total Quadran and Amarenco have won more than 182 MWp of solar capacity from CRE’s rooftop tender programme, which was initiated in 2017, securing the largest portion of the awarded capacity. According to statistics provided by the French firm, Technique Solaire and Urbasolar come next, with 130 MWp and 126 MWp, respectively.

Earlier in February France selected around 150 MW of projects in the ninth rooftop solar tender that targeted commercial and industrial projects with capacities of between 100 kW and 8 MW. The average prices in the two bidding categories were slightly lower than in the previous round.
