The renewable energy sector has broken records going from strength to strength

20 april 2020
Despite the coronavirus pandemic rage, the renewable energy industry has reported new records establishment. This is a good omen for the upcoming ENEX / ENEX New Energy

Lock-down and quarantine period Poles have had to face are reflected in energy consumption.  The COVID-19 pandemic has had a real impact on the economy. The portal reads that according to the Polish Economic Institute , electricity demand in some countries has fallen by as much as 15%.  This decrease is supposed to be the direct result of social isolation imposed by the authorities.  The power need  decreases and thus obsolete power units and power plants which offer the most expensive energy are being ramped down.  Consequently, renewable energy has priority and must be taken up into the grid. Thus this slow-down does not apply to RES.

The  portal shows Germany as the example. From 6 to 12 April solar energy accounted for 23% of all electricity generated in that country  which makes it the highest result in history. The previous record was - 21.1%  in mid-2019.

The record was also broken in Spain -  the Spaniards have added 4GW of PV power, therefore they now have 9 GW of installed capacity.  According to Spanish  REE network operator, the electricity generation in March 2020 reached 1.049 TWh. This represents  all-times record in  PV electricity generation. Compared to March 2019, this result is 29.1% higher. The records make REE optimistic before the upcoming summer.

We hope that only positive news will come from Poland and the whole world. The upcoming Fair of Renewable Sources of Energy held in Poland ENEX 2021 will see the coronavirus pandemic a thing of the past.
