Vattenfall is building two new solar parks

Vattenfall wants to build a 46 MW open-space solar park in Nauen near Berlin. Another large-scale photovoltaic project with 23 MW is to be built in Silberstedt in Schleswig-Holstein. Vattenfall wants to market the solar power generated there via long-term power supply agreements (PPA). There is no state funding for the two solar parks, according to Vattenfall's press release.

According to the current planning status, the solar park in Silberstedt, which is located around 130 kilometers north of Hamburg, should be completed in the third quarter of 2024. The photovoltaic system in Nauen, 40 kilometers west of Berlin, is scheduled to be completed at the beginning of 2025. In continuous operation, both solar parks together should generate an amount of electricity that mathematically corresponds to the needs of around 20,000 average German households.

According to Vattenfall, Vattenfall has launched subsidy-free solar parks with a total installed capacity of 150 MW in Germany in 2023. Germany's currently largest agri-PV project, Tützpatz in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, has been under construction since September with 79 MW of installed capacity. Vattenfall plans to expand electricity generation from photovoltaics in its markets by 300 to 500 MW per year.

The Swedish energy company has reorganized its business in Germany. In addition to the ground-mounted PV systems, Vattenfall is also expanding the area of photovoltaic installations. However, the group has exited district heating in Germany.
