The Current Situation and Perspectives on the Use of Solar Energy for Electricity Generation:The Use of Solar Power in Other EU Countries

The Use of Solar Power in Other EU Countries

As more solar PV markets develop considering the EU as a whole, in some countries, mainly in the Northern and Eastern EU member states, the use of solar PV for the generation of electricity is either low or nonexistent. Slovenia installed 27 MW in 2010, which is a good market level for a population of 1.9 million.

Other markets remain either small or are unlikely to add much to the EU solar PV market in the future. Of these, Romania and Hungary remain untapped. In the North, although grid parity has almost been reached in Denmark without using incentives (by using the existing net-metering scheme instead), the prospects of a huge solar PV market developing are at least a decade away (see Tables 4.8, 4.9 and 4.10).
