    Solar Market in Poland small

    /23rd September 2019, RENEWABLE MARKET WATCHTM/ The solar photovoltaic development in Romania was started with small scale photovoltaic installations below 30 KW in 2006. Contrary to the rapid expansion of the wind market in Romania, the photovoltaic power capacity remained relatively unchanged by the end of 2011. With the introduction of support mechanisms in the law in 2008 and the subsequent amendments in 2010, 2011 and 2012, the Romanian photovoltaic energy market started growing since the second half of 2012. Thus, the country's solar PV market performed impressive growth in 2013 and was amongst the best performing solar markets in the world. Romania had a cumulative photovoltaic installed capacity of only 41MW for 2012 and only for one year, this capacity exceeded 1,293MW (1.29 GW) by the end of 2014, which was a more than a 20-fold increase from the 2012 level. Romania finished the year 2013 at fourth place in Europe by installed new photovoltaic capacity measured on a year-on-year (y-o-y) basis.

  • Europe Net Metering and Self-Consumption Solar PV Market Outlook 2016 - 2025

    Europe Net Metering small

    /30th November 2016, RENEWABLE MARKET WATCHTM/ Distributed solar power,  which has been the backbone for the bulk of the solar PV sector’s growth in  Europe,  is moving towards self‑consumption and net metering according to recently published report Europe Net Metering and Self-Consumption Solar PV Market Outlook 2016 - 2025. In February 2015, the European Commission published its new Energy Union strategy depicting a vision in which “citizens take ownership of the energy transition, benefit from new technologies to reduce their bills, participate actively in the market”. Besides greater consumers’ involvement, the energy transition will require much more renewables. This paradigm shift has already started: In 2014 and for the first time, renewables produced more power than nuclear in Europe. And this trend will continue: according to the European Commission’s forecasts, renewables will cover around 45% of our electricity demand by 2030, and their share is expected to grow to 60% ÷ 97% by 2050. This represents a major opportunity to establish a clean, secure and resilient energy system on which the European economy can grow.

    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.

    Belgium Solar Photovoltaic PV Power Market Outlook 2020 2030 Small

    /3rd September 2021, RENEWABLE MARKET WATCHTM/ The Czech Republic is the fourth most energy-intensive country in the EU mainly due to the high intensity of its industry (such as metallurgy, steel and coal). After Germany and Poland, the Czech Republic is the third-largest coal producer in the EU. Although gains have been made in reducing energy intensity in the industry sector, the potential for energy efficiency improvements in the buildings and transport sectors is substantial. Energy use and carbon dioxide emissions in these sectors are growing. Energy efficiency improvement is considered a priority to reduce energy consumption and address climate change while also providing benefits for energy security. Investments in new renewable energy generation capacity in the Czech Republic are moderate in the past five years. Coal remains the primary energy source for electricity production, followed by nuclear power and hydropower. However, activity on the solar photovoltaic (PV) power market in the Czech Republic has been increasing since 2018, according to the recently published study Czech Republic Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Power Market Outlook 2021 ÷ 2030.
