Currently, the RenErGate Group develops photovoltaic power plants of the 100-kW and MW-class in the MENA region. Due to its well-developed infrastructure and excellent conditions for renewable electricity generation, the region offers an optimal environment for the market development in the area of renewable energies.
The MENA region is characterized by a large supply of space and high electricity demand. Local politics promotes the establishment of international companies and facilitates market entry. In addition, the region offers good development opportunities beyond national borders. The investment in PV power plants usually pays off within 5 years. The energy payback period of the power plants is considerably less than one year. The region offers an average global radiation of over 2,000 kilowatt hours per square meter and year. This extraordinary global radiation corresponds to 300 days of sunshine.
The focus of our PV projects lies prevailingly on the high-altitude and mountainous regions. Due to the falling winds on the ridges of the mountain foothills, there is a continuous air flow, which improves the operating points of solar cells by its cooling effect. Despite the high level of global radiation, the cooling effect avoids overheating and thus a reduction in the efficiency of the PV cells.
The particularly suitable environments for photovoltaic-based power generation are just one reason for choosing our locations. The well-developed infrastructure also enables the reliable and safe operation of PV power plants.
