Since their inception in 1985, Statkraft have become a key player in the green energy sector thanks to their hydro, wind, solar and biomass projects. Due to their success, the renewables group founded their investment division Statkraft Markets in 1999. Their focus is on global energy solutions and trading for their customers. Statkraft Markets is at hand to arrange power purchase agreements for subsidy-free wind and solar projects.
In February 2022, Matrix Renewables confirmed their PPA agreement with large-scale renewable energy developer Statkraft. The 50MW solar plant located in the south of Spain will have a total installed capacity of 50MW. The 10-year PPA will begin in the second half of 2022, which is when the solar project will become operational. Statkraft aims to locate more PPA in this region of Spain, having first expressed interest in purchasing contracts in 2021 to exploit Spain's high solar potential.
