The Dutch government encourages the production of renewable energy in the Netherlands. Renewable energy is better for the environment, makes the Netherlands less dependent on fossil fuels and is beneficial to the economy.

Dutch solar sector

The Dutch Solar sector is blossoming. Sales of Dutch solar systems is expanding exponentially, mainly due to investment in research-and-development and innovation.  The Dutch industry is a leader in technology and a worldwide supplier of high-tech equipment –the majority of the solar panels produced worldwide have Dutch technology inside. Dutch research has also contributed to more knowledge and use of thin-film, of building integrated systems, applications in infrastructure and in the environment.  New techniques such as floating PV with bi-facial crystalline Silicon and layered solar systems being able to take up energy from the different hues of the colour spectrum for more efficiency.
