Netherlands Solar Market Small

/LONDON, May 6, 2024, 11:00 BST, RENEWABLE MARKET WATCHTM/ The Dutch solar market maintains a good balance between its segments, positioning it as the leading European country in solar capacity per capita. Considering the limited space for ground-mounted installations, the industry is exploring innovative solutions such as on- and off-shore floating solar and solar carports and increased local participation in renewable energy projects to enhance social acceptance and integration. The cumulative installed PV capacity grew from 0.5 GW in 2012 to over 22 GW in 2024. The country is among the best performers in Europe in the share of installed small-scale solar generation capacity (<1 MW). Current government plans and legislative changes show firm intentions to continue the existing support and increase solar self-consumption and the number of prosumers.
