Maximizing the Portuguese solar potential via flexible solutions

Innovative Business Models | Energy Storage | Project Finance

How come Portugal’s cumulative solar capacity by the end of 2022 (2.59GW) was smaller than the annual capacity additions that Spain (3.4 GW) and not-that-sunny Netherlands (3 GW) managed to add that year? Boasting the highest solar radiation in Europe, Portugal has huge PV potential. However, despite often reaching over 50% of renewable energy production, only ~6% of that power output comes from solar. Investing in new technologies such as energy storage, floating solar, and green hydrogen, and simplifying the permitting process without sacrificing the environmental needs of Portugal are necessary updates to make. Thankfully, all these different strategies are being worked on and the Portuguese government is investing in the country's renewable future. A striking example: Europe's biggest solar park is being built in Santiago do Cacém, Portugal!

We are excited to return to this land of possibilities. This year we invite you to join us again in Lisbon for the Solarplaza Summit Portugal to explore the new technologies that are being invested in as well as emphasize the importance of self-consumption in the Portugal solar market, and the updates being made to the national grid. We are ready to harness the power of the Portuguese sun alongside you by fostering the sharing of knowledge and network!
