The partnership is expected to unlock opportunities for more extensive alliances within the utility-scale PV space.

This includes the prospects of volume expansion, and new technologies including batteries and solar tracking solutions.

The alliance could also extend to new markets in the future.

Trina Solar EMEA president Gonzalo de la Viña stated: “This cooperation is very special and exciting for Aquila Clean Energy and Trina Solar. We feel honoured that Aquila Clean Energy has chosen Trina Solar as a strategic module partner for developing their evolving project portfolio.

“Our companies share the vision of decarbonising energy generation and fighting climate change. We need to scale up solar PV deployment significantly, and this partnership is an important step towards achieving a net-zero future.”

In September 2022, Aquila Clean Energy secured €1bn ($1.1bn) from the European Investment Bank to support the development and construction of its renewable energy pipeline across Spain and Portugal.

The pipeline includes more than 50 projects, mostly solar and onshore wind, with a total power generation capacity of 2.6GW – sufficient for the annual consumption of 1.4 million homes.
