The Cypriot renewable energy policy was introduced in 2009 and then revised last year, with 9MW installed so far.

Although the government has placed an annual cap on the total volume of new installations, there is no limit on the size of plants. The maximum capacity for a large (21 – 150kW) PV plant is 2MW per year.

For 1012, the authorities are considering removing the PV cap altogether as well as a proposal for an additional category of 150kW – 10MW. There have also been calls to introduce a bidding process with a total capacity of 50MW.

Alongside the feed-in tariff, an Energy Fund has been implemented. It subsidizes the difference between the FiT and the current market price for electricity. This is expected to rise from $0.0297 to $0.0878 this year. The Cyprus Institute of Energy manages the operation of this fund. The final approval of investments is carried out by the Energy Fund Management Committee – made up of six members from the main public energy and industry authorities in the country.

  • Photovoltaics International 25th Edition

    In this issue we offer some insights into what the next wave of photovoltaic technologies may look like as that upturn gathers pace. Industry observers have been in broad agreement that the major next-gen PV technology innovations won’t happen straight away. But there’s also little doubt that the search is now on in earnest for the breakthroughs that will come to define the state of the art in the industry in the years to come.

  • Manufacturing The Solar Future: The 2014 Production Annual

    Although the past few years have proved extremely testing for PV equipment manufacturers, falling module prices have driven solar end-market demand to previously unseen levels. That demand is now starting to be felt by manufacturers, to the extent that leading companies are starting to talk about serious capacity expansions later this year and into 2015. This means that the next 12 months will be a critical period if companies throughout the supply chain are to take full advantage of the PV industry’s next growth phase.
