“The installed capacity in #PV in the PPS on 1.03.2020 amounted to 1596.5 MW (based on data submitted to the TSO). This is an increase of 183.2 percent. year on year and by 8.4 percent in the period I 2020 - III 2020”, said in PSE.
At the end of 2019, PSE reported that the country’s installed capacity had reached 1.29 GW, from around 1 GW of solar in late September 2019 and just 486 MW of PV at the end of 2018. This means that in the first two months of this year, around 297 MW of new PV systems were deployed.
Last year’s strong growth was mainly driven by incentives for rooftop PV and the extension of net metering access for businesses. The Polish government is also supporting commercial and industrial PV, as well as large-scale solar, through renewable energy auctions.
Solar power continues to occupy a leading position in terms of installed capacity among all renewable energy sources globally and in Ukraine in particular. Successful business development in the field of solar energy, latest world trends and successful business models of solar energy, as well as the latest technological solutions and services will be presented on 9th International Solar Energy Conference and Trade Show of Central and Eastern Europe CISOLAR 2020. The event will be held on July 15-17 in Kyiv: on July 15 – business conference (Fairmont hotel, 1 Naberezhno-Khreshchatytska Str.), on July 16-17 – the largest trade show of new energy technologies in solar energy (M82 exhibition center, 82 Mezhyhirska Str.).
