Bulgaria and Romania set to be EU solar hotspots

Each of the nations, like Greece, will have gigawatt-plus solar additions in 2024, according to Solarpower Europe, enough to carve out a 3% slice of an anticipated 35 GW regional market.

Industry body Solarpower Europe has predicted Bulgaria and Romania will emerge from the “rest of the EU” pack to each claim 3% of the region’s solar market in 2024.

The forecast was made by the trade group as it launched its EU Market Outlook for SolarPower 2020-24 report this morning.

The study reveals Europe recorded its second best year for solar in 2020 despite a Covid-ravaged 12 months, with member states adding 18.2 GW of new generation capacity, a rise of 11% on the 16.2 GW added last year. That is second only to the 21.4 GW added in 2011, said the trade body.
