Robert Velkey 2017.08.22.

The Hungarian government is providing support of 6.4 billion forints (EUR 21m) to a unit of Hungarian energy company MVM to build two solar energy plants, according to the official gazette Magyar Közlöny.

Hungarowind Szélerőmű will receive 3.2 billion forints for a solar plant in Orsozlány, near Budapest, and 3.1 billion for a plant in Felsőzsolca, in north-eastern Hungary.

Together, the plants will produce almost 155,000 gigajoules of renewable energy a year and reduce emissions of greenhouse gases by some 42,000 tonnes each year.
