Albania has launched its first tender for utility-scale onshore wind power plants. Individual projects with a capacity of between 10MW and 75MW can apply.
Several projects will be chosen; total tendered capacity equals 100MW and this may be increased to 150MW in the coming months, in line with the country’s renewable energy targets. Developers are invited to submit their qualification submissions by mid-June 2022. This will be followed by a request for proposals from applicants successful in the first phase. The announcement of the successful bidders is expected in the first half of 2023. The Albanian Ministry for Infrastructure and Energy is running the tender. The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) has been supporting the Albanian authorities in the introduction of competitive procurement processes for renewable energy projects.
