At present, ALCAAL Renovables has over 100MW of own SOLAR PV projects under development and further projects in the pipeline. We select our sites carefully, analysing every region we operate in detail, prioritising:
Competitive Solar Irradiation
We conduct initial assessment based on reputable global horizontal irradiation data followed by verification via the installation of adequate instrumentation on site.
No Environmental Constraints
We conduct initial assessment to identify possible environmental constraints early, in order to prioritise those developments with No Environmental Constraints. We follow up with full Environmental Impact Assessment.
Available Grid Capacity and Proximity to Loads
We prioritise sites where existing HV infrastructure exists locally and has sufficient spare capacity to accommodate the project, coupled with existing loads within reasonable proximity to minimise overall transmission losses.
Easy Access and Adequate Terrain
Identification of Risks and Opportunities, quantifying impact to project, establish mitigating plan and monitor progress.
Availability of Competitive Local Contractors / Workforce
We support the use of competitive local contractors and workforce such that our projects create a positive social and economic impact to the region where we operate.
