The signs for solar in Europe are set for strong growth in 2019.
Based on a series of new year predictions from experts within the renewable energy industry, solar energy capacity across Europe is set to jump from 9.5 gigawatts to 13.5 GW (42.1%) by the end of 2019, with the European Union set to make up 12% of the global solar module market.
Renewable energies underwent somewhat of a worldwide renaissance in 2018, with Europe, driven by political and social factors from the European Union, showing particular enthusiasm for a renewable-based future. In its 2018 renewable energy directive, the EU announced that all 28 member states would have to source 20% of their energy from renewables by 2020. Come December, the bloc further reinforced its commitment to renewables by calling on members to increase their renewably-sourced energy quota from an originally stated 27% to 32% come 2030.
