Photovoltaic breaks another record. On Friday around noon, Polish photovoltaic sources worked with an average power of 8,376.15 MW, according to data from the power transmission system operator Polskie Sieci Elektroenergetyczne (PSE).
Thus, the result from March 29, 2023, which was 7,539.08 MWh, was improved. In turn, on February 28 this year. it was 6996 MWh.
According to PSE’s hourly data, the record photovoltaic capacity was maintained on Friday from 11 am. Instrat.
“As he said, so he did: a record 8,376 MWh of electricity from #PV in the Polish system between 12 and 13. The peak value very precisely corresponded to the forecasts of @pse_pl” – added in another entry.
Marek Józefiak, spokesman for Greenpeace Polska, pointed out the clear improvement of the previous record. “There is a photovoltaic record, and not just any – better by 10 percent.” he noted.
Photovoltaics in Poland
From the report of the Energy Regulatory Office (ERO), published in the second half of March this year, shows that at the end of 2022, over 1.2 million micro-installations were connected to the power grid, 99 percent of which were connected to the grid. of them are photovoltaic installations. Their installed capacity was over 9.3 gigawatts (GW).
In 2019, the installed capacity of micro-installations RES exceeded 1 GW. This means that over the last four years the installed capacity has increased ninefold.
The President of the Energy Regulatory Office, Rafał Gawin, pointed out that “the importance of this type of distributed generation sources in our country will increase, especially in the context of the energy transformation and the construction of a new energy market architecture, in which it is desirable to produce and consume energy at the local level”. “However, the introduction of such a capacity of micro-installations into the power system requires an urgent adaptation of the network infrastructure” – he added.
