Which risks & challenges is the project currently facing?

The involved parties (mainly Siemens and Wien Energie) could not find common contractual terms to agree on.

Which are critical or seem invincible? Please provide a detailed description

Siemens could not give the commitment for the site of the PV system for more than 5 years. Wien Energie needed a commitment for at least 10 years.

- If yes, which ones and how?
Would this example be a good add to the Wiki?

No
Have relevant internal recommendations / lessons from the WIKI’s best practices been used for the project development? 
If yes, which ones and how?

No
