EDPR Sunseap scales up its renewables presence in China achieving a total of 130MWp of distributed generation projects
16MWp rooftop PV project in Shandong China, one of EDPR’s largest rooftop solar projects
18 January, 2023
EDPR Sunseap announced today its solar projects in China reached a total capacity of approximately 130 Megawatts-peak (MWp). This includes approximately 30 solar projects that are completed, under construction or secured. More than 40% of the total capacity(53MWp) is already in operation, including a 16MWp rooftop system in Shandong, one of the biggest rooftop solar projects in EDPR to date. The secured and under construction projects are expected to be fully operational by first half 2023.
The 53MWp of completed projects are built on rooftops for commercial and industrial clients across several provinces such as Hebei, Shandong, Jiangsu, and were completed between the years 2021 to 2022.
These completed projects will generate over 63 million kWh of energy annually, or offset approximately 52,858 metric tonnes of carbon emissions*, which will help to contribute to China’s national goal of achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2060.
An EDPR Sunseap spokesperson said: “2022 has been a year of growth and new opportunities for EDPR Sunseap as we scale up our presence in the Asia Pacific region. We are honoured to work with like-minded Chinese partners, and will continue to grow our presence in China by building more renewable energy systems as we look forward to another successful year.”
