Under the new auction systems, developers will bid on the price they will charge their power generation, with some exposure to the market price: CSP projects, biomass and biogas projects will secure 20-year contracts with a 15% market exposure, while solar PV and other projects will secure 12-year contracts with a 5% market exposure. The selected solar projects will have two years to be built from the date of awards, while the rest of the projects should be constructed within 4 years.
