The report published by the JRC indicates that all EU countries have made good progress in PV energy production. However, regardless of the geographical diversity of the countries, there is still potential for all Member States to increase their PV production. Between 2014 and 2015 alone, the total EU PV production increased by around 8.7% and totalled about 96 TWh at the end of 2015.
A large part of this increase can be attributed to the United Kingdom and the Netherlands who grew their already large PV capacities by 40% and 30% respectively. Switzerland almost doubled its capacity, while Austria and Denmark also made good progress.
