Bureaucracy hampering solar PV installation

The PV Legal consortium has launched a comprehensive online database with data on project development processes and bureaucratic barriers hampering solar photovoltaic (PV) systems in 12 EU countries.

The PV Legal project, an initiative co-funded by the Intelligent Energy Europe Programme of the European Commission, aims to provide a thorough research and analysis of all the steps and costs incurred in order to comply with administrative and legal requirements when setting up a solar PV system in one of the EU countries.

Although most EU countries recognise the potential of solar PV and implement support policies the national PV markets are not yet expected to grow to its full potential due to bureaucratic hurdles.

As a next step the project partners will address recommendations to policy makers and grid operators in the main European solar PV markets by means of advisory papers as well as national forums (conferences) and ad-hoc workshops.
