    Bulgaria and Romania with Gigawatt New Capacity Additions in Solar Photovoltaic PV Power by 2024 small

    /18th December 2020, RENEWABLE MARKET WATCHTM/ Solar photovoltaic (PV) power in the European Union had a strong performance in 2020 despite the negative health, social and economic effects of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, revealed the recent update of Europe Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Power Market Outlook: 2020 ÷ 2030.  The EU member states installed 18.2GW of solar power capacity in 2020, an 11% improvement over the 16.2GW deployed in the previous year, according to the recently released report EU Market Outlook for SolarPower 2020-2024 by SolarPower Europe. With minimal solar power installation activity in Bulgaria and Romania in the last few years, the prediction model of SolarPower Europe shows the up-and-coming gigawatt new solar photovoltaic (PV) capacity addition opportunities for Bulgaria and Romania by 2024. SolarPower Europe’s growth assumptions are much higher than the targets formulated by EU member states in their National Energy and Climate Plans (NECP). But with drivers for solar energy in Europe only getting stronger, the foundation is laid for further rapid growth in the coming years.

  • Current State of the Solar Photovoltaic Energy Market in Romania

    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.

    New Horizons for Solar Power Market Romania small

    /18th May 2020, RENEWABLE MARKET WATCHTM/ Romania had the cumulative installed capacity of 1,390 MW (1.39 GW) as of 1st January 2020, according to the recently published report Romania Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Power Market Outlook: 2020 ÷ 2030. The 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. After that, Romania was an emerging market for photovoltaic energy investments amongst SEE countries by the end of 2014. The maturing photovoltaic markets in Germany, Spain, France, Czech Republic, Greece, Italy and Bulgaria allowed investors to look for new opportunities among South-East European (SEE) nations and Romania was one of the best alternatives. Furthermore, Romania was one of the major destinations for the Chinese solar power plant investors in Central and Eastern Europe between 2012 and 2015. By the end of 2011, the country had approximately 3 MW installed capacity, by the end of 2012 this capacity increased fourteenfold to approximately 42 MW, and with a more than thirty-fold explosive growth cumulative installed capacity reached 1,293 MW (1.29 GW) by the end of 2014. However, solar photovoltaic market growth in Romania between 2015 and 2019 was moderate, with only 97 MW of newly installed capacity in this period.

    Three Seas Initiative Investment Fund Small

    /26th May 2021, 3SIIF/ The Three Seas Initiative Investment Fund, invests in RP Global-backed renewables developer Enery Three Seas Initiative Investment Fund S.A. SICAV-RAIF (‘3SIIF’, ‘the Fund’) announces that it has made its first investment in the energy sector, acquiring a significant interest in Enery Development GmbH (‘Enery’), an operations-led renewable energy developer. The existing shareholders, RP Global and Enery Management, will remain invested with a long-term vision to partner for growth within the Three Seas region. The investment is due to complete following merger control approvals. Enery owns a portfolio of 85MW of operating solar generation assets in Bulgaria, Czech Republic and Slovakia and has a significant development portfolio of over 2GW in a number of Three Seas countries, including Romania, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic and Slovakia. Solar Photovoltaic (‘PV’) generation has yet to be widely deployed in Central and Eastern Europe (‘CEE’) despite the ideal conditions with high levels of irradiation and availability of suitable land. The increasingly pressing requirement to decarbonise the CEE region is expected to present substantial opportunities for renewables investment in the near term.
