Nearly one in three RES project plans submitted to December’s licensing round are problematic as they display territorial overlaps concerning envisaged project sites, energypress sources have informed.
More than 30 percent of 1,864 producer certification applications submitted to the December round claim overlapping territory for RES project development, especially in the solar energy sector.
This latest concern comes as yet another sign of an overheated market and this condition’s possible repercussions.
The territorial overlap problem makes clear that a significant number of project plan licensing applications were lodged in a haphazard fashion without any organized registration work for land claims, placing in doubt the feasibility of these project plans.
Licensing application numbers were also sizeable for an ensuing round last month. A total of 477 applications representing 8.8 GW were submitted, increasing the likelihood of the implementation of filters, currently being examined by the energy ministry, to block baseless applications from licensing procedures.
