Solar was also the prevailing source in the “autumn round” of the 2017 SDE+ program for large-scale renewable energy projects, accounting for 60.7% of all preassigned capacity. Overall, 5,456 PV projects proposals, totaling 3,221 MW, were submitted.
The pilot phase will be implemented during a six-month period. Interconnected residential PV storage systems from Sonnen will be used to stabilize the power grid via blockchain.
ECN spin-off LeydenJar has developed a lithium-ion pouch cell prototype that increases the storage capacity of rechargeable batteries by 50%. With these advances devices such as electric cars, smartphones, laptops and other battery-based products can enjoy longer durability, they claim.
The Dutch research institute ECN also believes that 20 GW of installed PV capacity could already be reached by 2035.
The funds will be used to deploy around 25 MW of projects under the SDE+ program for large-scale solar and renewables.
Dutch headquartered construction firm Heijmans has announced plans to install noise barriers featuring integrated bifacial solar modules on a 400 meter stretch of the A50 road, close to the southeastern town of Uden.
The 15.5 MW project, planned for the Netherlands’ Groningen region, is expected to come online in December.
