Development of solar parks
Hungarian power plants are becoming obsolete, the current installed capacity of 8,900 MW may decrease to 6,900 MW by 2023, while the country’s energy consumption will increase by 1 percent per year. Together, the two parallel processes prompt the renewal of the Hungarian power plant portfolio, including the establishment of new – preferably carbon-neutral and green – energy generation capacities. SolServices Ltd. contributes to this process by developing solar parks with large installed capacities: through the selection of suitable sites, planning, permitting, compliance with ecological considerations as well as legal requirements, and careful consultations with local governments and NGOs.
There have been only a few examples of large-scale solar park developments in Hungary so far. SolServices Ltd. is actively involved in the development and implementation of the best practices. In order for our solar parks to provide the greatest added ecological and social value, we have launched a number of programs, including a complex biodiversity survey in cooperation with several nature conservation institutions. In addition, we are participating in the launch of technological developments and research to improve the efficiency of solar parks by involving Hungarian universities and research institutes.
Education and public awareness
In Hungary, it is necessary to continuously improve the level of general knowledge and public awareness about renewable energy sources. The backbone of our educational and public awareness activities consists of developing and mentoring local and national social programs that demonstrate the operation and the benefits of PV solar technology, as well as the need and opportunities for energy conservation through the use of tangible models, lectures, and interactive tools for all ages.
EU to give key role to solar parks in its new Biodiversity and Farm to Fork Strategy
After a long period of preparation, on 20 May 2020 the EU published probably the two most important documents of the next few years: the Biodiversity Strategy and the Farm to Fork Strategy. The fact that the two documents were published at the same time shows clear…
Solar panels are indeed recyclable!
Many international research shows that solar parks can compensate for the carbon footprint associated with their establishment – the manufacturing of the mounting structure and the solar panels, the installation of the system, as well as the construction of the…
What to produce on agricultural lands: crops or electricity?
In many places, instead of wheat, corn, carrots and tomatoes, the land will soon generate electricity in Hungary. This is seen as a harmful process by many people, primarily those who make a living from agriculture or related activities, while such developments are…
