The attitude of European countries to photovoltaic

2023-11-01

European countries have different policies and attitudes towards photovoltaic to a certain extent, but most European countries actively support and promote the development of photovoltaic. Here is an overview of PV policies and attitudes in some European countries:


Germany: Germany is one of the leaders in the European PV market. The country has implemented a series of policy measures, such as the Renewable Energy Law, which provides subsidies and preferential electricity prices for photovoltaic projects and encourages people and businesses to install solar energy systems.


Spain: Spain was once one of the pioneers in the European PV market, but has experienced policy changes and reduced subsidies over the past few years. However, the Spanish government has recently begun to take steps to encourage the development of photovoltaic projects and set a new target to increase the share of renewable energy to 70% by 2030.


Italy: Italy has been one of the hot spots in the photovoltaic market in the past, promoting the construction of large-scale photovoltaic projects by introducing subsidy schemes and preferential electricity prices. However, in the last few years, the policy environment has changed, leading to a shrinking of the PV market. Recently, the Italian government has taken some measures to revive the photovoltaic industry.


France: France has set long-term clean energy goals and has set a solar power production target, which it plans to increase to about 40 GW by 2030. French government for photovoltaic projects

UK: The UK was once one of the largest photovoltaic markets in Europe, encouraging people and businesses to install solar systems through the introduction of subsidy mechanisms. However, in the past few years, the UK government has gradually cut PV subsidies, resulting in a slowdown in the market.


Overall, the attitude of European countries towards photovoltaic is generally positive, and most countries have adopted policy measures to support the development of photovoltaic. But as technology matures and markets change, some countries may also adjust their policies to meet new needs and challenges.
