Portugal Stalls Solar Plans in Response to Covid-19 Crisis

Amid the Covid-19 outbreak, Portugal has decided to postpone its 700MW solar energy licensing auction until the market stabilises.

According to analytics company GlobalData, the delayed auction is a result of market unpredictability and may not be rescheduled until the pandemic subsides.

Somik Das, Power Analyst at GlobalData, said: The fate of the auction depends on investor interest and confidence, which will largely depend on the successful implementation of projects subscribed under last year’s auctions.

With a proper plan of action in place, the nation may manage to abide by the 2030 targets it had initially set.
