France/Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes: call for expressions of interest for photovoltaic projects in communities
Ademe and CNR (Compagnie Nationale du Rhône) are launching a call for expressions of interest (AMI) for the "Development of photovoltaic solar resources on public property" in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region. The AMI is aimed at local authorities with fewer than 100,000 inhabitants and energy associations, and is designed to develop and implement medium-sized photovoltaic projects (maximum 500 kWp) on the roofs and shades of local authority parking lots.
This objective of massification should also make it possible to achieve "an equipment rate that meets the challenges of the energy transition " as well as regional objectives, while structuring the photovoltaic sector on buildings and parking lots by creating jobs.This massification objective should also make it possible to achieve "an equipment rate commensurate with the challenges of the energy transition" as well as regional objectives, while structuring the photovoltaic sector on buildings and parking lot shades by creating jobs.
The total budget available is 1 million euros, with the Ademe and CNR sharing half of the funding. The winners will be supported for three years: the financial support will be used to pay a photovoltaic development officer employed by the winning structure, "with a view to making the position permanent ". Applications are open until August 21, 2023.
