Past Webinar /// The Dutch Solar PV Market: market outlook & future grid developments explained.

Thursday 21 March 2019 - 15:00 CET - English spoken

The Dutch PV market is flourishing and has now reached between 4.3-4.5 GW of cumulative capacity, growing by 1.3-1.5 GW in 2018 according to estimates from Peter Segaar (PolderPV). The SDE+ subsidy again led to thousands of approved applications for projects last year, and projects are increasing in size. However, the surge of solar PV in the Netherlands is also resulting in challenges. Especially for the country’s electricity grid, this is increasingly becoming the case. 

This complimentary webinar is meant to provide in-depth insights into the future outlook of the Dutch PV market as well as the future grid developments. Jaap Baarsma, chairman of Holland Solar, will provide an overarching perspective of the market covering topics such as the role of subsidies, PPAs, the electricity grid, and the national climate agreement. Subsequently Huibert Baud, Manager Strategy & Innovation at grid operator Liander, will discuss the future grid developments and the accompanying challenges and solutions that are being sought.

HUIBERT BAUD /// MANAGER STRATEGY & INNOVATION - LIANDER
Huibert Baud (46) is manager Strategy and Innovation at the Dutch regional network operator Liander. Liander distributes electricity to 3.0 million customers and gas to 2.9 million customers in about one third of the Netherlands.

The Dutch market will continue to draw attention and excitement, as well as offer plenty of opportunities for investors and developers alike. Coming June 13th, we will again assemble the most relevant solar professionals in the Dutch PV market, and discuss the challenges and opportunities at the 11th edition of the leading Dutch PV conference ‘The Solar Future NL’, in DeFabrique, Utrecht.

PAST WEBINAR /// Incentives & Opportunities in the Dutch PV market explained

April 2018

The Dutch PV market is flourishing. Installed solar PV capacity has reached nearly 3  GigaWatt. Experts believe that this could grow to 20 GW in less than 10 years. A net-metering program, to be replaced by at FIT in 2020, is stimulating the residential market, and there are many cooperative initiatives for RE and PV. Moreover, the SDE+ subsidy again led to thousands of approved applications for C&I projects last year. 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 2018 is 12 Billion Euro, with applicable projects ranging from 15 kiloWatt to over 100 Megawatt.

This complimentary webinar is meant for foreign stakeholders with an interest (to get involved) in the Dutch PV market. More in depth information and experiences with the SDE+ subsidy and the opportunities and challenges in the Dutch PV market will be discussed at the 10th edition of the leading Dutch PV conference ‘The Solar Future NL’, 17th of May 2018 in DeFabrique, Utrecht (NL).
 

 

  • How much money is available and for who?

  • Why are not all granted projects (yet) realised?

  • What is likely to happen with the SDE+ in 2018 and 2019?

  • Lessons learnt and suggestions for foreign stakeholders

 

  • What does the Dutch PV market look like right now?

  • What are the current challenges?

  • What are the opportunities for foreign stakeholders and how to get started?

PAST 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).
