Hungary is continuing its goal of diversifying its energy sources, this time with a focus on solar power.
According to MTI, China National Machinery Import and Export (CMC) laid the cornerstone of a 32 billion HUF (100m EUR), 100MW solar park in Kaposvár (SW Hungary) on Monday.
Innovation and technology minister László Palkovics told the event that Central Europe’s largest solar park would be built in Kaposvár. The project will support the country’s climate policy targets, including making Hungary a country that can produce energy in a carbon neutral way by 2050.
“The solar park will contribute to developing a well-balanced and sustainable energy mix in Hungary and guaranteeing the country’s energy security,” he said.
The park is expected to be completed by December.
