Albania is preparing a public call for solar power projects at two former military airports while Slovenia intends to establish a public-private partnership at an army barracks in Ljubljana.

The Albanian Investment Corp. (AIC) aims to build two photovoltaic parks of an overall 34 MW in peak capacity on two unused lots owned by the Ministry of Defence, Scan reports. According to a preliminary analysis from a year ago, the areas have high solar radiation potential.

A tender is in the works for a consultant for a feasibility study for unused army airports in Shkodër and Saranda, with a budget of EUR 64,000. The locations span 31.8 and 8.6 hectares, respectively. The selected company will be tasked with providing the cost and profitability figures and financing options.

Slovenia will look for an investor within a public-private partnership to install photovoltaic systems on the roofs of buildings at an army barracks in Ljubljana

The Government of Slovenia issued a regulation for a planned public-private partnership for photovoltaic facilities at the Edvard Peperko military barracks in the capital city of Ljubljana.

The upcoming concession is aimed at achieving the army facility’s self-sufficiency and saving energy. In addition, the government is planning to use public funds to renovate the ten structures at the site to cut their primary energy consumption by half and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 648 tons of carbon dioxide equivalent per year.

The solar power project is for the roofs of existing and new buildings. It is estimated at just over EUR 5 million. The photovoltaic facilities should provide 3.7 GWh per year or almost two times more than the electricity consumption at the barracks, according to the regulation. They are scheduled to be installed by 2024.
