Webinar /// Opportunities in the Dutch PV market - heading towards 20 GW

Thursday 13 April 2017 - 16:00 CEST - Language: English (RECORDINGS AVAILABLE)

The Dutch PV market is flourishing. Installed solar PV capacity has reached more than 2 GigaWatt. Experts believe that this could grow to 20 GW in less than 10 years. A netmetering program is stimulating the residential market, and there are many cooperative initiatives for RE and PV. Moreover, the SDE+ subsidy led to thousands of approved applications for C&I projects, ranging from 10 kiloWatt to over 100 Megawatt. The SDE+ (Stimulering Duurzame Energieproductie/Encouraging Sustainable Energy Production) is an operating grant. Producers receive financial compensation during 15 years for the renewable energy they generate. The SDE+ subsidy scheme is already running since 2008. The budget for 2017 is 12 Billion Euro.

For anyone with an interest (to get involved) in the Dutch PV market, this webinar will be of great value by giving you a quick overview of the landscape and state of the market. More in depth information and experiences with the SDE+ subsidy will be discussed at the 9th edition of the leading Dutch PV conference ‘The Solar Future NL’, 18th of May 2017 in Baarn (NL).
