Issue 315 - 14 Jan 2016 | 1 minute read

Some 14 photovoltaic (PV) plants with total 268MW capacity were commissioned in 2015 in the High Plateaux and southern regions, Centre de Développement des Energies Renouvelables director Noureddine Yassaa told the official Algérie Presse Service in early January. Yassaa has previously noted that the falling cost of PV panels since 2008 is working in Algeria’s favour. He said 2015 “was marked by the speeding up of photovoltaic plants construction by [state utility] Sonelgaz’s renewables subsidiary [Shariket Kahraba wa Taket Moutadjadida] SKTM in the High Plateaux and the south”.
