The world’s best solar PV (photovoltaic) projects now offer the cheapest electricity in history, according to the IEA (International Energy Agency). In this European Solar report, we provide a high level introduction to the use of PV within the EU. Also, one of the largest global PV markets. Despite rapid growth the PV sector currently provides only 4% of the EU’s total electricity. Not unexpectedly Covid has impacted the ongoing rollout. Even so, the resilience shown has been impressive and there is a hope of a post pandemic bounce. Owing to the green tilted 750 billion Euro recovery as well the recent commitment to make the EU a climate neutral area by 2050. With this in mind, recent evaluations have estimated that PV will provide 62% of the EU’s electricity by this date.
To summarise, this is potentially a golden opportunity for investors.
