The Netherlands could add one other 3.3 GW of recent PV capability in 2022, which might be sufficient to convey its put in solar energy to a complete of 17.6 GW.
This emerges from new numbers launched by the nation’s state-run Rijksdienst voor Ondernemend Nederland (RVO) company, which reveals that, if the above-mentioned numbers can be confirmed by precise deployment, all PV programs put in within the nation could cowl greater than 12% of its electrical energy demand. The RVO cites examples of tasks the place photo voltaic just isn’t lastly deployed , resembling owing to rooftop constructions discovered to be unsuitable for photo voltaic modules, or the place new tasks will not be instantly related as a result of grid congestion.
Furthermore, the RVO reported that the put in PV capability reached 14.4 GW on the finish of 2021, when photo voltaic accounted for round 9.3% of complete energy demand. Most of this capability – 8.6 GW – comes from programs exceeding 15 kW, with the remaining 5.8 GW represented by smaller installations.
Moreover, the company stated round 3.5 GW of recent PV installations had been related to the grid within the Netherlands in 2021. This exceeds by round 200 MW the info launched by the Dutch Central Company for Statistics in March, when the newly put in photo voltaic capability was estimated at round 3.3 GW.
The SDE++ program for big scale renewables continues to be the primary driver for deliberate and contracted PV capability within the nation.
A latest report from the Netherlands Organisation for Utilized Scientific Analysis (TNO) said that the Netherlands may attain as much as 132 GW of PV by 2050.
