How Ready Are Europe's Grids for Solar PV Interconnection? A consortium of European solar groups has updated its dat

Funded by the European Commission's Intelligent Energy for Europe (IEE) program , PV GRID was launched in May 2012 (running until October 2014) to identify and reduce administrative barriers to large-scale integration of solar PV into Europe's electricity distribution grids. It builds on progress made by the PV LEGAL project (July 2009-Feb. 2012), which ultimately identified four main areas of barriers hampering PV installations in Europe: permitting procedures, grid connection rules and technical standards, grid connection procedures, and grid capacity issues. (Note that most of the administrative hurdles to large-scale solar PV integration focus on grid integration.) PV LEGAL also created an online free database tracking information about processes, legal resources, and costs and time required to complete each step in development of a PV system. When PV LEGAL was about t...
