The European PV market has experienced robust expansion. The year 2018 brought 11GW of new installations in Europe itself and achieved growth of 20% compared to 2017. The forecasts for 2019 are equally optimistic.
In residential areas, the market will benefit greatly from EU regulations for passive housing. In short, the newly constructed buildings would have to meet the strict requirements of energy efficiency.
In reality, the only way to meet these conditions is solar energy. Although already popular, PV will be become the standard. As a result, the integrated systems will gain in importance, which is already noticeable in the countries like the Netherlands, Switzerland, Germany and Sweden.
