Preparados para un futuro solar: el paquete climático de la Comisión es un logro histórico, pero una mayor ambición es posible

Last December SolarPower Europe released the solar power market figures for 2019, as well as their forecasts for the period 2020-2023. The report reveals that 2019 was one of the best years ever for solar in the EU. The region installed 16.7 GW – a 104% increase over the 8.2 GW added the year before. Furthermore, 2019 also showed the strongest solar growth since 2010, when the EU PV market also increased by 104% during the first European solar boom, although to a lower level, reaching 13.4 GW.
