13.01.2016: The Dutch Association of Energy Network Operators (Netbeheer Nederland) announced that the PV systems registered on the online platform www.energieleveren.nl reached a cumulative capacity of 1.32 GW as of the end of December 2015. Netbeheer Nederland created the platform to register all renewable energy systems installed in the country, taking into account the lack of reliable comprehensive statistical data on the renewable energy sector. The country reached 1,048 MW of cumulative PV capacity at the end of 2014 according to the latest figures from Dutch statistics authority Centraal Bureau voor de Statistiek (CBS). This means that approximately 300 MW of new PV systems were registered in the country in 2015. In 2014 and 2013 the newly installed PV capacity was of 377 MW and 220 MW, respectively. Local PV expert and blogger Peter Segaar stressed that Netbeheer Nederland’s figures are only provisional and that the amount of new PV capacity for 2015 is likely higher. Segaar, which previously said he expected Netherlands to reach 1.4 GW of PV capacity at the end of 2015, has now predicted that the country could have also reached 1.5 GW. »There are still major shortcomings and data errors in the network operators’ database, and lots of PV-installations are still not registered,« said Segaar to PHOTON. © PHOTON
