Swissolar, the trade association representing the Swiss solar sector, has announced that it expects 1.5GW of new solar capacity to be installed in Switzerland in 2023, an increase of almost 40% on capacity additions in 2022.
If these forecasts are met, Switzerland will boast a total installed capacity of just over 6.2GW, which will account for 10% of the country’s total electricity consumption in 2024. This would be an encouraging development for the Swiss renewables sector, as the government set a target of meeting 10% of the country’s energy demand with solar power by 2025 back in 2011, and Swissolar is optimistic that this rapid rate of development will continue.
