For the fourth year in a row Solarplaza is glad to share with you the latest edition of our ‘’Top 70 PV portfolios in Europe’’ overview. In recent years, falling government support, increasing competition and harsh financial outlooks have continuously been spurring market consolidation, with fewer owners holding portfolios of increasing sizes. And so the secondary market in Europe has become even more active with a record level of mergers and acquisition.
