The government of Albania has announced the results of the country's first utility-scale bidder-selected site auction for onshore wind.
Three bidders have been awarded capacity, totaling 222.48 MW, under the country's third renewable energy auction and the first for onshore wind, announced the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD).
The successful bidders are Total Eren with a bid of EUR 44.88/MWh for a capacity of 75 MW; Guris with a bid of EUR 74/MWh for 74.88 MW; and Verbund with a bid of EUR 74.95/MWh for 72.6 MW.

The EBRD has helped the Albanian authorities introduce competitive procurement processes for renewable energy projects.
