Solar electricity generation (PV) is playing a substantial role in the energy transition. It is expected that PV can supply 25% to 30% of the energy demand in The Netherlands in 2050. Already in 2030 we expect to reach the 50 GWp installed capacity. In order to guide the route towards this goal, it is important to address a number of questions. Two important questions among them are:
- Where exactly do we foresee the installed PV capacity to be developed?
- What are the innovations needed to realize this in a technically and economically feasible way?
In order to address these questions, the Dutch government via the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO) commissioned a study that resulted in a new roadmap for PV systems and applications in The Netherlands. You can download the roadmap here.
