Solar power in Hungary

Despite being far behind the rest of Europe, Hungary is making great progress with solar energy. Hungary had built more than 110 megawatts (MW) of photovoltaics by the end of 2015. In 2016, the country's capacity increased significantly, reaching 225 megawatts. In terms of solar energy resource potential, Hungary receives between 1950 and 2150 hours of sunshine per year, with an annual worldwide horizontal solar radiation of 1280 kWh/m2. Hungary has put in place the rules and incentives required by the European Union for the adaption of renewable energy sources. As of 2018, Hungary had 790 MWp of installed solar PV capacity. Solar accounted for 2.29 percent of total domestic electricity output at the end of 2017. By 2020, the EU hopes to have a 20 percent renewable energy mix in total energy consumption, and a 32 percent renewable energy mix by 2030.

Kaba Solar Park

In the city of Kaba, the company began building on the largest component of its Hungarian renewables portfolio: the almost 70-hectare Kaba Solar Park, which will offer electricity to more than 20 thousand households and have an installed power capacity of 43 megawatts. The solar power plant will use cutting-edge technology and is expected to last at least 25 years. According to plans, the Kaba Solar Park, located on 70 hectares and using more than 97 thousand solar panels, will start commercial production at the end of 2020.

Kapuvar Solar Park

The solar power plant, which is located near Kapuvár on a 220,000-square-meter industrial site, will offer electricity to about 10,000 houses and 30,000 individuals for the next 25 years. This is the country's second-largest solar power plant, with a peak capacity of roughly 25 megawatts, and is located on the former Flax mill site. The plant consists of 76 thousand high-quality solar panels as well as German technology.

Paks Solar Park

In Paks a new solar plant worth 9 billion forints (EUR 28.5 million) was developed.  The new plant, which has a capacity of 20.6 megawatts, will support around 8,500 families. MVM Group has funded 65 percent of the project with its own funds, with the rest coming from European Union funds.
