  • Belgium Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Power Capacity Exceeded 6 GW in 2020 - Trends, Investments, Forecast, COVID-19 Impact, Renewable Market Watch

    Belgium Solar Photovoltaic PV Power Market Outlook 2020 2030 Small

    /26th February 2021, SolarPower Europe, RENEWABLE MARKET WATCHTM/ Belgium recorded its best year for new installations as cumulative installed solar photovoltaic capacity exceed 10 GW at the end of 2020. A study conducted by Ecofys, suggests that Belgium could set a renewable energy target between 22,5% and 27,2%. The association recommends an objective at 25% renewables minimum. Solar photovoltaic (PV) power in Belgium 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: 2021 ÷ 2030.  Each of Belgium’s three regions has its own regulatory framework for solar and renewable energy. The country has the potential to reach 18 GW of solar capacity by 2040, according to the grid operator Elia. Solar PV developments have very good prospects in Belgium as solar technology costs are going down.

    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.

  • Corporate Sourcing of Renewable Energy and Corporate PPAs with a Rapid Growth in Europe Informed Renewable Market Watch™

    /LONDON, June 28, 2021, 14:00 BST, EINPresswire/ With the increasing costs of electricity, fluctuations of fossil fuel prices, and unpredictability of these costs, the corporate renewable PPA market segment will play an increasing role in renewable energy capacity development in Europe by 2030, revealing the recently published study Europe Corporate Renewable PPA Market Report 2021 ÷ 2030. The potential for the renewable corporate sourcing market in Europe, which includes both power purchase agreements (PPAs) and other forms of corporate sourcing, is significant. Until 2018, wind accounted for 90% of the contracted capacity in Europe, but recent growth in solar PPAs has further driven market growth.

    France Surpassed 10 GW Cumulative Installed Solar Photovoltaic Capacity in 2020 Small

    /12th January 2021, SolarPower Europe, RENEWABLE MARKET WATCHTM/ France crossed the significant capacity threshold of 10 GW installed in 2020. It is now halfway towards its MAEP (Multi-Annual Energy Programme) goal of 20.1 GW of solar capacity by 2023, according to SolarPower Europe. Secondly, despite the impact of the pandemic, France produced 4.46 TWh of solar in the third quarter of 2020, thereby beating its record from 2019 (4.43 TWh). This is a significant achievement and an important step towards building back better. 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 climate targets that have been set are also promising. The Climate & Energy Law adopted last year confirmed the Energy Transition for a Green Growth law with 2030 targets. The detailed MAEP sets out the requirements for each type of technology, and the targets for 2028 now lie between 35.1 GW and 44 GW in cumulative capacity. To keep in line with these targets, the annual market growth rate will need to rise to 2 GW/year between now and 2023, and then 4 GW/year between 2023 and 2028. As a result of these targets, solar is positioned to be one of the most important contributors to the French energy transition.

  • Season's Greetings 2021 by Renewable Market Watch

    Seasons Greeting 2021 Renewable Market Watch small

    /23rd December 2020, RENEWABLE MARKET WATCHTM/ The global energy system is undergoing rapid transformation. With the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Climate Agreement serves as inspiration, countries, cities, and corporations worldwide continue to take meaningful action on renewable energy development. 2019 was another historic year for the global renewable power sector mix over the past year. Renewable energy sources have continued to dominate new additions to the world’s power generation over the past year. Renewable capacity reached 2,537GW globally by the end of 2019, up 176GW from the previous year. More solar PV capacities were installed globally than any other power generation technology. Solar alone saw more new capacity deployed than fossil fuels and nuclear combined. Solar added almost twice as much capacity as its renewable peer, wind power. A total of 97.08GW of grid-connected solar photovoltaic (PV) capacity was installed globally in 2019, according to the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA). This led to a total global cumulative solar photovoltaic (PV) power capacity of over 580GW in 2019 after the solar exceeded the 300GW mark in 2016 and the 400GW level in 2018.

  • Season's Greetings 2023 by Renewable Market Watch

    /LONDON, December 16, 2022, 10:00 GMT, RENEWABLE MARKET WATCHTM/ The global renewable energy capacity growth is going to reach a new record level at the end of 2022. The world is in a global energy crisis that has not been seen for decades. The main drivers of this crisis were the growth of commodity prices since 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic and recovery period, the disruption of supply chains, and Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.  Europe is at the centre of this crisis, but it has significant influence over the markets and economies worldwide. However, according to the Renewable Market Watch™,  the newly installed global renewable energy capacity will grow by more than 3500 GW by 2032. There is no power to stop renewables progress for the following ten years.
