According to studies, the life expectancy of solar panels is about 32 years before decommissioning. During the life of photovoltaic panels, a 20 per cent decrease in power capacity might occur. Between the first 10 to 12 years, the maximum decrease in efficiency is 10 per cent, and 20 per cent when reaching 25 years.
The Law of Ukraine “On Amendments to Certain Laws of Ukraine on Improving the Conditions for Supporting the Production of Electricity from Alternative Sources” № 810-IX of July 21, 2020, from August 1, 2020, establishes new additions to the “green” tariff for RES facilities that use equipment made in Ukraine. If the share of Ukrainian-made
The Law of Ukraine on Amendments to Certain Laws of Ukraine on Improving Conditions for Supporting Electricity Production from Alternative Energy Sources, which provides for a reduction of the “feed-in” tariff, has entered into force
In particular, the following reduction of the “green” tariff is envisaged for SPP: -15% for SPP with a capacity of 1 MW and more, put into operation from July 1, 2015, to December 31, 2019; -2.5% for SPP with a capacity of 1 MW and more, put into operation from January 1, 2020, to October
Solar Energy Association of Ukraine continues a series of studies on the development of solar generation in Europe – we publish part 2 of the study
This time we analyzed the installed capacity of SPP to the population in Europe. As last time, the leader is Germany, which has one of the largest SES capacity per unit of population. And what about Ukraine? Ukraine is one of the most densely populated countries in Europe, but so far, it does not have
We wanted to investigate how Germany managed to reach 49 GW of solar power plants built (as of January 1, 2020). Andriy Gerus, Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada Committee on Energy and Housing and Communal Services, helped us with this. He recently drew attention to the successful results of applying the “feed-in” tariff in Germany
We decided to investigate whether Ukraine has a lot of installed capacity of SPP compared to the area of our country on the example of other European countries. Ukraine is one of the three largest countries in Europe by area. As of January 1, 2020, there were 5,487 MW of installed solar capacity in our
