Conergy is acting as general contractor on this project and is responsible for the entire planning and engineering of the park as well as for the construction and the supply of the components. The Conergy plant will not have to rely on any feed-in tariff, but will be profitable thanks to “green certificates” and so-called “Power Purchase Agreements” (PPAs). Under these agreements, the energy provider purchases the solar electricity at a fixed price.
2 May 2013 - Hamburg – Conergy is expanding its collaboration with energy suppliers further and joining public utility company Stadtwerke Winsen (Luhe) as well as representatives from Harburg District Council at the inauguration of a 100 kilowatt Conergy solar power plant, which is taking place at 2 p.m. today, Thursday, 2nd of May 2013. The rooftop plant is located on the Harburg District Council building in Winsen an der Luhe, south of Hamburg in Germany. The district had offered a lease on the 600 square metre roof area in the autumn of 2012. Stadtwerke Winsen (Luhe) won the tender for this project in close cooperation with Conergy. Acting as general contractor, Conergy was not only responsible for the planning and configuration of the plant as well as the supply of the components but also for the construction, for which it collaborated with its certified partner Schmidlein Solar.
30 April 2013 - Hamburg / Cape Town – Conergy is expanding its international presence with its entry into the South African market. In Cape Town, in the suburb of Milnerton, Conergy and its partner Solsquare have realised the country’s first plant for a home for disabled people. Solsquare acted as general contractor on this project, collaborating closely with Conergy in the planning and engineering. The 62 kilowatt grid parity plant operates with 100% own consumption and does not have to rely on any help from state-backed feed-in tariffs. The 48 residents of the home and their 12 carers will cover around 70% of their electricity requirement from the plant in the summer and achieve a level of autonomy of 45% in the winter. The rooftop plants also represent one of the first projects with so-called “automated output power management”, which prevents solar power being fed into the grid in line with Cape Town city regulations. The majority of the funding for the project came from the “Energy and Environment Partnership” (EEP), a European development programme for South and East African countries.

As Madhya Pradesh harbours 19% of India's tiger population and 10% of the world's tiger population, the MPFD has a mandate to protect and ensure the maintenance of viable populations of the Bengal tigers.
31 October 2012 - In its latest study, Bloomberg New Energy Finance (BNEF) classified Conergy as one of the so-called “Tier 1” manufacturers of crystalline photovoltaic modules. Bankability is the key criterion for tiering: “In most cases, banks are the strictest party when it comes to verifying the quality of the components and engineering, procurement and construction services providers (EPCs). By ‘bankable’ we understand manufacturers whose modules would be financed in non-recourse projects by non-development banks. Such modules need to have historically high quality standards.”
18 October 2012 - Hamburg – Together with the local Company Spercheios S.A., Conergy realized four solar power plants for private Greek investors. The four plants with a total capacity of one megawatt were all being constructed using Conergy PowerPlus modules from the factory in Frankfurt (Oder). The power plants will produce a total of 2,800,000 kilowatt hours per year – sufficient to supply 722 households. At the same time, the plants will avoid 2,000 tonnes of CO2 being emitted, thus benefitting the environment on the Hellenic peninsula.
16 October 2012 - Hamburg / Barcelona, 16 October 2012 – The organic restaurant La Sal Varador on the beach of Mataró in Barcelona Province is breaking new ground with Conergy’s aid. With the feed-in permission obtained, the path is clear for the first Conergy plant in Spain that will be competitive without any subsidies, combining own consumption with connection to the grid. During the Spanish moratorium in the summer, system supplier Conergy had set up this pilot project in collaboration with its two installation partners Eco 100 and SolarTradex to demonstrate new possibilities for Spain’s solar future with the grid parity in mind. The conclusion is simple: solar is also a cost-effective choice without subsidies in cases where a substantial amount of power is required during the daytime.
11 October 2012 - Hamburg – Conergy has handed over a 544 kilowatt in-roof system to the investor, Alubel, in Italy. The roof-integrated solar power plant has been installed at the premises of Alubel, a manufacturer of metal roof systems and wall cladding, in Bagnalo in Piano, Reggio Emilia. The solar specialists have installed around 2,300 Conergy PowerPlus modules on more than 9,000 square metres of the factory's metal roof. The modules generate around 572,000 kilowatt hours of electricity a year. This is enough to supply more than 160 households with clean energy and more than the total electricity consumed by Alubel at its company premises. 33 Conergy IPG T converters feed the electricity into the Italian grid. The system is monitored using the Conergy VisionBox.
9 October 2012 - Arbuckle, California – Conergy Projects Group has broken ground on a 725 kW photovoltaic system for T&P Farms out of Arbuckle, California.
