According to the requirements of the European Union the share of the renewable energy sources in used energy has to be at least 13% in Hungary, while the target is 14.65 %. By the up to date statistics our country has reached this level in total energy consumption, but in generated electricity it’s far leg behind the average of the EU countries.
To help the spread of the renewable energy sources there is a need for a sort of support system because the capital cost of these projects is quite high and the market value of the electricity is not high enough to make these investments rentable. In the countries of the world there are different support methods. In Hungary, currently there are two different support schemes, which are quite different from each other.
In the course of my thesis, I would like to compare these support systems, showing their particularities.
I will specifically analyse the possibilities of the photovoltaic plants in the renewed Hungarian support scheme. I will show its incentive for the orientation of the panels and the potential of the application of energy storage systems.
During my thesis, my research confines oneself to photovoltaic power plants because this is the only type of renewable power station which built-in performance can increase significantly in the near future.
