SolarPower Europe goals to attain a brand new file for the set up of photovoltaic manufacturing items in 2023, after the excessive of 2022, mentioned Aristotelis Chantavas, the president of the group in a message for within the new 12 months.
“It has by no means been clearer that vitality coverage is a safety coverage. The European Union has dedicated to assist Ukraine by ending Russian fossil gasoline imports to the EU. About 41.4 gigawatts of photo voltaic [capacity] put in within the EU by 2022, sufficient to energy greater than 12 million further properties with photo voltaic vitality – and cut back fuel demand by greater than 100 liquefied pure fuel tankers. In the present day, greater than ever, European coverage makers are conscious of the main position of photo voltaic in local weather and vitality safety efforts. Earlier than the brand new 12 months, we sat down to speak with Power Commissioner Kadri Simson in regards to the historic photo voltaic numbers in 2022,” he mentioned and added: “In 2023 we count on about 54 GW of latest photo voltaic. [capacity]. In a situation with excessive ambition, we forecast as much as 68 GW. This path may be vital. [The International Energy Agency] Inform us that the EU wants 60 GW of latest photo voltaic by 2023, to make up for Russia’s fuel deficit. So, in 2023 we’ll work with trade, coverage makers, and residents, within the race to organize for photo voltaic.
