DESCRIPTION

This is Bolivia’s first large-scale photovoltaic project. It entails the construction of a 50 MW photovoltaic (PV) power plant in the Altiplano region, in the highlands of western Bolivia, and its connection to the Bolivian national grid. The PV plant boosts electricity generation by approximately 100 GWh/year and contributes to the diversification of the Bolivian energy mix, reinforcing Bolivia's national strategy to develop renewable energies (wind and solar), which are expected to reach 70% of installed capacity in 2025.

RESULTS
  • Construction of a 50 MW photovoltaic power plant in the Altiplano region.
  • Electricity generation of 100 GWh/year.
  • Greenhouse gas emissions reductions at 50 000 t/CO2 equivalent per year.
