The purpose of SolarPower Europe is 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 yr.
“It has by no means been clearer that vitality coverage is a safety coverage. The European Union has dedicated to help Ukraine by ending Russian fossil gas 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 houses with photo voltaic vitality – and cut back gasoline demand by greater than 100 liquefied pure gasoline tankers. Immediately, 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 yr, we sat down to speak with Power Commissioner Kadri Simson concerning the historic photo voltaic numbers in 2022,” he mentioned and added: “In 2023 we anticipate about 54 GW of recent photo voltaic. [capacity]. In a state of affairs with excessive ambition, we forecast as much as 68 GW. This path may be necessary. [The International Energy Agency] Inform us that the EU wants 60 GW of recent photo voltaic by 2023, to make up for Russia’s gasoline deficit. So, in 2023 we are going to work with business, coverage makers, and residents, within the race to arrange for photo voltaic.
