Luxembourg’s vice prime minister and economy minister, Étienne Schneider has announced that the country’s cabinet has adopted a new draft legislation for self-consumption from solar energy on Feb. 21.
The new provisions, Schneider said, are aimed at changing the law regulating the energy system and at enabling prosumers take an active role in the Luxembourg’s future energy landscape.
According to the new rules, owners of solar power generators, as well as communities running collective PV projects, will be allowed to self-consume part of the produced power, and to sell excess power to the grid. Furthermore, the self-consumed power, the government said, will be exempted from paying grid fees.
Schneider also announced that on February 24 a tender for the installation of PV projects exceeding in size 500 kW has been launched. Private citizens and enterprises are entitled to participate to the tender. “With this kind of tenders, Luxembourg will reach its national targets for renewable energy,” said Schneider.
The new energy strategy of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg aims to increase the share of renewables in its energy mix from around 6% currently to 70% by 2050. About 2.4 GW of solar energy power generation capacity is expected to be installed in order to reach this target.
