Brandenburg-Briest Solarpark is photovoltaic power station, located at a former military airfield in Brandenburg, Germany. At the time of its completion, it was the largest solar park in Europe.[1] Equipped with Q-Cells solar modules, it consists of three sections, namely

  • Brandenburg-Briest East (30 MW)
  • Brandenburg-Briest West (30 MW)
  • and Briest-Havelsee (31 MW)

that add up to a total installed capacity of 91 megawatts (MW), sufficient to supply the electricity needs of more than 11,500 households.[2][3]
