    Cyprus Net Metering small

    /26th March 2018, RENEWABLE MARKET WATCHTM/ Cyprus is located at the Eastern Basin of the Mediterranean Sea with a subtropical climate. With an area of 9,251 km² and coordinates at 35°N and 33°E, Cyprus lies at the crossroads of Europe, Africa and Asia at the crux of the busy shipping and air routes linking the three continents. The solar irradiation in Cyprus is one of the highest in Europe with more than 320 days of the year considered sunny. Meteorological measurements showed that the annual solar irradiation is approximately 2,002 kWh/m² with a standard deviation of 32 kWh/m². According to Photovoltaic Geographical Information System (PVGIS), measurements taken from crystalline PV systems with inverter efficiency 96 %, showed an average annual yield of 1,672 kWh/kWp. The rapid decline on solar PV  technology costs, the attractive efficiency increase on  PV  modules available for the residential sector and European Parliament public policies on energy to address the climate change issue have substantially increased the number of consumers that have decided to start producing energy under net metering and self-consumption solar support schemes in Cyprus.

    /31st October 2018, RENEWABLE MARKET WATCHTM/ Decline in solar PV equipment costs in the past few years, the attractive efficiency increase on PV modules available for the residential sector and state support on renewable energy to address the climate change issues have substantially increased the number of consumers producing energy under net metering and self-consumption solar support schemes in Ukraine. The State Agency for Energy Efficiency and Energy Saving of Ukraine (SAEE) has reported that over 3,000 households have installed residential solar photovoltaic (PV) installations, which is 2.5 times more than in the same period in 2017 (1,214 households). Regarding the solar radiation, Ukraine is placed in the European zone in category “B”. Ukraine has a large potential market for solar energy projects. The size of solar radiation reaches from 800 to 1,450 W/m² per year. According to the intensity of solar radiation Ukraine can be divided into 4 regions: West, Central, South-East and South. The average amount of solar energy received annually in Ukraine is about 1,200 kWh/m2.

Economic growth in Asia maintains a steady pace. Gross domestic product (GDP) in the region is forecast to expand by 5.3 % in 2016. Several Asian countries experience energy shortages and alternative energy sources are increasingly important to fulfil local energy demands. 

  • Boost in New Solar PV Capacity Installations in Lithuania under Improved Net Metering Scheme

    Turkey PV market 2013 small

    /26th February 2018, RENEWABLE MARKET WATCHTM/ Lithuania’s new government supports renewable energy and intends approximately 200 MW of new residential and commercial solar photovoltaic (PV) capacity under an improved net metering scheme to be installed in Lithuania over the next three years. In Lithuania, renewable electricity generation plants with the total installed capacity of up to and including 10 kW are promoted through a sliding feed-in premium, i.e. the difference between the guaranteed tariff and the sale price for electricity generated from RES. This price shall not be lower than the average market price of the previous month. It shall be calculated according to the procedure set by the NCC (Chapter III Art. 20 Par. 2 and 14 Law on Energy from Renewable Sources).

  • Hungary to Increase Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Capacity

    New Hope for Solar Market In Poland Small

    /17th January 2018, RENEWABLE MARKET WATCHTM/ The Hungarian Government is willing to establish a sustainable energy economy in all aspects, where beside environmental and social sustainability, cost-effectiveness also prevails. The expansion of renewable energy systems can help to decentralize our power supply system, and it opens up new directions of development such as a smart grid system. Hungary imports nowadays approximately 30% of its power. In the meantime, 50% of the country’s power is generated from a single nuclear plant (Paks Nuclear Power Plant). János Lázár, the minister heading the Prime Minister’s Office announced in the middle of December 2017, the government’s plans to minimize Hungary’s energy imports in the next 10-20 years. He said Hungary should cover one half of the country’s total demand from the upgraded Paks Nuclear Power Plant, and the other half from solar photovoltaic (PV) power plants.
