>> Als het gaat om energie en klimaat 2 The Dutch PV Policy The Dutch government aims at an annual energy consumption reduction of 2%, a reduction of CO2 emissions of 30 % by 2020 (compared to 1990) and a contribution of 20 % of renewable energy to the total primary energy consumption in Photovoltaic (PV) is still relatively costly at this moment compared to other renewable energy sources and the policy is to reduce these cost asap. Grid parity expected between 2015 and 2020 but that does not make for a business case yet. Additional measures and innovation is needed. Therefore R&D expenditures are relatively high (top 10 world) and constant around 12M euro/year. In addition an impulse was given by the Innovation Agenda for Energy. Of the first tranche 9 MEUR a part will go to demonstration projects for the integration of PV in the build environment (BIPV). See SBIR 2010.
>> Als het gaat om energie en klimaat 3 The Dutch PV Market After an initial head start stimulation schemes were stopped all together in 2003 and the domestic market plummeted. SDE (Subsidy for Sustainable Energy) was launched in April The aim of the SDE is to promote roof top PV installations and prepare the different local market players for a larger domestic roll out in the nearby future. The total new PV power to be installed in this period ( ) in theory could be 78 MW, on top of the 60 MW installed end 2008 (see CBS statline) but there is a delayed effect for actual installation.
>> Als het gaat om energie en klimaat 4 The Dutch PV Market However, the budget for the SDE is established each year and the prices are Adjusted by ECN according the changing market electricity prices. The grants last for 15 years after the start of production. In 2009 this optional time period was limited to one and half years. In 2009 the SDE was adjusted to allow for larger systems: 1.A category of small PV installations between 0,6 KWp and 15 KWp with a basic 0,526 € KWh (of which 27,3 € is returned by the utility and 25,3 € is subsidy). 2.A second category of PV systems larger then 15 KWp and up to 100 KWp with a basic 0,459 € KWh (of which 0,076 is returned by the utility and 0,383 € is the actual subsidy).
>> Als het gaat om energie en klimaat 5 The Dutch PV Market In 2009 the initial SDE budget reached 88 million euro. Due to the overwhelming public interest on top of this an additional budget of 50.8 million € was allocated in 2009 to allow for another 11.8 MW installed capacity. For 2010 a total SDE budget planned of 93 million euro of which 69€ goes to the first category of small PV installations and 24€ to the second category of PV larger systems. The small category already opened and is overwritten. The large category opens 31th of May. The CBS data over 2009 are expected later this year, see Preliminary figures from Certiq B.V. (the green certificate issuing body) show a steady rise in the amount installed PV.
>> Als het gaat om energie en klimaat 6 The Dutch PV Market Apart from the SDE there are other financial advantages. An energy investment deduction (EIA) is available for companies that invest in energy saving measures and for PV up to a maximum of 3MW/peak a year. Only a tiny fraction of the total amount is accounted for by PV. Environmental investment deduction (MIA) and environmental investments (VAMIL) are available and under certain conditions “green loans” from the banks are applicable for PV systems. Sometimes local governments (cities/provinces) offer additional possibilities for PV deployment.
>> Als het gaat om energie en klimaat 7 The Dutch PV Market The Dutch PV market shows a controlled growth. Specific is maybe the emphasis and experience with BIPV. Apart from cost reduction of the PV modules and TCO additional cost reduction on the market side is needed and sought after. Bundling PV demand is an option and so are projects with housing cooperatives to name but two examples. To conclude: if you have a good idea do not try it alone!
