  • Renaissance for Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Market in Spain

    CEE and SEE Countries Solar PV Market Outlook 2016 2025 Small

    /14th November 2018, RENEWABLE MARKET WATCHTM/ The European solar photovoltaic (PV) market passed through a transition period in the past few years from feed-in tariffs dominated. It is changing to a subsidy-free market driven by tenders and corporate power purchase agreements. Solar PV project developments in Europe are becoming less and less dependent on state incentive programs. They benefit from falling solar PV equipment costs, grid parity in Southern parts of Europe and emerging electricity prices for households and businesses. In 2017 European solar photovoltaic (PV) market scored 25 % growth compared to 2016. The advantages of net metering and self-consumption solar PV projects have also been supporting this growth. With the positive growth expectations for the European solar market, it is quite interesting to see the current situation in Spain as one of the leading solar markets in Europe in the past decade.

  • Self-Consumption Solar PV Systems Easier for Installation in Castilla-La Mancha Region of Spain Due to the Efforts of the Spanish Photovoltaic Union (UNEF)
