Solar Market Outlook in the Netherlands
The Netherlands solar power market is one of the fastest growing solar markets in Europe. In 2020, it managed to deploy 2.93 GW of solar capacity and it marks a growth rate of 40%. This data pushed the cumulative figure of the country’s solar market to 10.11 GW. Since 2017, there has been consistent growth for the Dutch solar power market.
Majority of the solar power installations in 2020 were in the residential segment but the industrial and large-scale installations had their fair share, too.
Despite failing to meet its EU 2020 renewable energy target of 14% (the Netherlands is only 12.5% by 2020), the country is well on its way to making solar as its primary renewable energy source.
The Dutch government is promoting the solar market growth through national SDE+ auctions to provide greater financial incentives to investors. They are also making it happen through the Power Purchase Agreements.
The projected solar installation capacity in the Netherlands by 2050 is at 38 GW to 125 GW.
Solar Energy Equipment Supply Capacity in the Netherlands
Solar panel companies are quite abundant in the Netherlands. There is also a growing number of renewable energy manufacturers in the country.
The Netherlands also has easy access to solar energy suppliers for the residential and industrial segments.
Top 8 Major Seaports & Logistics in the Netherlands
The Netherlands is one of the most important and largest seaports in Europe. It is also accessible to a wide range of logistics and passenger ports. This makes it easy to procure solar power equipment for those who wish to shift to renewable energy sources.
The top logistics and seaports in the Netherlands include the following ports: Port of Amsterdam, Port of Rotterdam, Port of Alkmaar, Port of Den Helder, Port of Breskens, Port of Dordrecht, Port of Harlingen, and Port of Moerdijk.
Solar Cleaning Machine
What is a Solar Panel Cleaning Equipment?
Solar Panels generate power by absorbing sunlight. The more they absorb the sunlight, the more energy they can produce. But problems with efficiency in power production arise when dust and other impurities get stuck on the surface. These impurities can block the sunlight from reaching the solar cells.
To tackle this issue Solar Panel Cleaning Equipment is used to clean the surface of the panels. This equipment consists of various cleaning agents and cleaning hardware. This equipment is brushed with long handles that have a wider span to clean the farthest part of the panels.
Where is the Panel Cleaning Equipment used?
Panel Cleaning Equipment is mainly used in cleaning the Solar panels. They can be used to clean the rooftop solar panels or panels in solar power plants. Cleaning equipment gives the best results when used regularly as once the dust and mixture start to build on the panels it’s very hard to get rid of.
Types of Panel Cleaning Equipment
Based on the shape and size of the panels and the entire Solar Plant, Solar Panel Cleaning Equipment is categorized into two categories.
- Automatic: Automatic panel cleaning systems are installed in large Solar Plants. There are three types of systems: robots, automatic cleaning and rinsing systems, and cleaning sheets integrated into panels.
- Manual: Manual Solar Panel cleaning kits are available in the market for Solar Roofs.
How does Panel Cleaning Equipment work?
Solar Panel cleaner is applied to the surface of the panels, and a brush is used to clean the dust and stains off. These special Solar Panel cleaning solutions are effective in cleaning bird droppings and hard stains. Also, a proper solution can increase the life of any panel without damaging the surface.
