Since 2015, PV Energy supports the Caribbean twin-island state Antigua and Barbuda in achieving its target to generate 20 per cent of the national required electricity from solar energy. The close cooperation with the government of Antigua and Barbuda resulted in the agreement to build a 10 MWp sun2live solar clean energy generation project and 6.4 MWh energy storage cluster. One of the large-scale projects realised within this contract is the 3 MWp sun2live solar power plant at the V.C. Bird International Airport Antigua. This substantial facility, sensitively engineered and adapted to the special requirements of an airport and the islands’ utility APUA, underlines the pioneering role of the island and its commitment to sustainability. Moreover, PV Energy equips more than 50 schools, community centers and other public buildings on the twin-island state with sun2roof solar installations. The versatile range of realised projects and installed clean energy solutions provides proof for the joint venture’s excellent expertise in the renewable energy sector.
