Commercial Prosumers as Catalysts for Solar PV Adoption in South East Europe

The solar PV market in the South East Europe (SEE) region is on the cusp of a significant transformation, driven by a combination of factors including stronger project economics, the improved availability of financing, as well as rising electricity and carbon prices.

While each country has a different electricity market and faces unique challenges, the economic fundamentals of customer-sited solar PV investments have entered a promising new phase.
