Cyprus’ largest PV park is operating subsidy-free

The 8 MW facility has been developed by a cement producer to supply around 10% of the annual electricity needs of its nearby factory.

The audit agency said at least half the EU member states will be unable to reach their 2020 renewable energy targets, including the Netherlands, France, Ireland, Poland and the U.K. It recommends citizen participation and more renewable energy auctions to increase investment and raise volume in the EU clean energy sector. Cross border renewables trade and grid improvements are also highlighted as necessary for a successful energy transition.
