Solar energy developer Dhamma Energy, fully owned by Eni, has been awarded two solar pv plants in the latest energy tender in France, the CRE 4.10 auction.
One of the projects is a 1.5 MWp rooftop installation in a parking and the other one is a 5 MWp grounded-mounted solar plant. Both projects are located in the region of Nouvelle Aquitaine, in Southwestern France.
Construction of the projects is scheduled in 2022.
“Dhamma Energy has been awarded both the two projects that it had submitted to this latest solar tender auction in France. These are excellent news for the team. Dhamma Energy keeps growing in the booming French solar market, with grounded-mounted solar parks and also with rooftop installations,” said Dhamma Energy’s COO France, Sémir Chahed.
Dhamma Energy currently holds 120 MWp of solar plants in operation in France and a solar pipeline under development of almost 3 GWp in France and Spain.
Dhamma Energy was acquired in October 2021 by Eni gas e luce, a fully owned subsidiary of Eni, and is headquartered in Madrid. Eni gas e luce has been active in the retail electricity market since 2012 through Eni Gas & Power France, with 1.3 million customers.
