Netherlands to add 3.3 GW of solar this year 2023-02-08
According to data from the state-run agency RVO, the installed solar capacity in the Netherlands will reach 17.6 GW by the end of the year, which can meet at least 12% of the country's electricity demand.
The Netherlands is on track to add another 3.3 GW of new PV capacity in 2022, enough to bring the total installed solar capacity to 17.6 GW.

Newly released figures from the Dutch state-run RVO Nederland show that if the above figures are confirmed by actual deployments, all installed photovoltaic systems could cover more than 12% of electricity demand. The RVO cited multiple examples of solar projects not being deployed, such as new projects not being immediately connected to the grid because rooftop buildings were found to be unsuitable for solar panels, or because of grid congestion.

In addition, RVO reports that installed photovoltaic capacity has reached 14.4 GW by the end of 2021, with solar accounting for around 9.3% of total electricity demand, with the bulk of this capacity – 8.6 GW – coming from systems above 15 kW, with the remaining 5.8 GW coming from smaller installations.

The agency also said that around 3.5 GW of new PV installations would be connected to the grid in the Netherlands in 2021, some 200 MW higher than figures released by Statistics Netherlands in March, when new installed solar capacity was estimated at around 3.3 GW.

The SDE++ program for large-scale renewable energy remains the main driver of planned and contracted PV capacity in the country.

According to a recent report by the Netherlands Organization for Applied Scientific Research (TNO), by 2050, the Netherlands is expected to generate 132 GW of photovoltaic power generation.
