Due to general cost reductions in the solar industry and the associated reductions of feed-in tariffs in a number of countries, the professional online marketplace
www.project-forum.biz reduces the marketplace fees. Thus, one of the most efficient tools for the sale of solar projects and power plants becomes even more attractive for project developers, EPC contractors and investors.
Offers remain free of charge, acquisition becomes cheaper
While the use of the marketplace will remain free of charge for vendors, the marketplace fees for buyers are being reduced by up to 33%. This ensures that transaction costs can be minimized sustainably. ‘We deliver on our promise to keep up with cost reductions in the solar industry’ said Karsten Kreissler, General Manager of ProjectForum4t2. ‘By introducing an additional discount for solar power plants above 5,000 kWp, we increase the appeal of our services for large ground mounted systems.’
ProjectForum4t2 is the alternative to existing distribution channels for solar projects. Concepts based on long brokerage chains or high commission fees will gradually be pushed out of the market. In contrast, the importance of cost-effective and trustworthy forms of marketing is constantly increasing.
One of the largest rooftop projects in Northern Italy sold
Shortly before the cut of feed-in tariffs in Italy, the project rights for a 1 MWp rooftop system were sold via ProjectForum4t2. The lean transaction process and the comprehensive documentation provided were among the success factors for a timely grid connection of the power plant before the official deadline for tariff-reduction. Due to a significant deterioration of the legal framework under the new ‘Conto Energia V’, ProjectForum4t2 expects a continuing market shift in Italy: Over the next months, more and more systems in operation will be offered via the online marketplace.
ProjectForum4t2 operates www.project-forum.biz, the first international and professional online marketplace for solar projects and power plants. The marketplace is the direct link between project developers, EPC contractors and investors. All offers are checked for completeness and consistency before publication. Each offer is associated with its own data room in which the comprehensive project documentation is stored. This ensures that only real projects are offered and unnecessary middlemen are excluded.
The team of ProjectForum4t2 has many years of proven experience in the development, planning, and implementation, as well as financing and management of solar power plants in Europe. Project Forum 4t2 GmbH was founded in 2010 and is based in Hamburg.
