& nbsp & nbsp Άγγελος Νικολάου & nbsp; & nbsp;
In an effort to break free from Russian hydrocarbons, the Commission has decided to reconsider its goals and invest in solar energy, in a bid to tackle the climate crisis at the same time. In order to boost the development of Renewable Energy Sources (RES), Brussels proposes to increase the primary target for renewable energy sources by 2030 from 40% to 45% under the “Fit for 55” package. They estimate that they will achieve this through the “European Initiative for solar roofs”, with the aim of reducing electricity and gas heating in homes, offices, shops and factories.
The program calls on EU governments to take action to reduce licensing time to three months for solar panel installations on roofs. This will be achieved with Community funding, while Member States will have to install solar energy systems in all suitable public buildings by 2025.

The Commission's strategy for solar energy is to double solar photovoltaic power by 2025 and to install 600 GW by 2030, in addition to the solar roof initiative with a gradual legal obligation to install solar panels in new public and commercial buildings and new residential buildings. Measures are also being proposed to integrate geothermal and solar thermal energy into modernized district and communal heating systems, as well as a Commission Recommendation to address the slow and complex licensing of large renewable energy projects, as well as a modification of the guidance. renewable energy sources for their recognition as a “supreme public interest”.
In particular, the Commission hopes that the measures decided will reduce gas consumption by 9 billion cubic meters per year by 2027 Investments in photovoltaics are estimated to cover 25% of electricity in the EU.
Furthermore, the Commission proposes the combination of photovoltaics with heat pumps and storage, so that homes can enjoy cheaper heating. It is noted that the installation of solar energy systems will be mandatory and for this purpose there are deadlines for adaptation of the Member States depending on the category of the building and the age.
According to the Commission the current from the solar panels are cheaper, while in the last decade their cost is lower by 82%.
Thus, by the end of 2022 the EU will: Increase the 2030 target for the share of Renewable Energy Sources to 45% from 40% Limit the duration of the permit for solar installations on roofs, including large ones, to a maximum of 3 months limit. & nbsp; Adopt provisions to ensure that all new buildings are “solar ready”.
Make rooftop solar installation mandatory for:
1) All new public and commercial buildings with a useful area of more than 250 sq.m. until 2026
2) All existing public and commercial buildings with a useful area of more than 250 sq.m. by 2027
3) all new residential buildings by 2029. The EU will also ensure that legislation is fully implemented in all Member States, allowing consumers in apartment buildings to exercise their right to collective self-consumption, without unjustified cost.
Access to solar energy for energy-poor and vulnerable consumers & nbsp;
The EU and the Member States will work together for: & nbsp;
Creating at least one energy community based on Renewable Energy in each municipality with a population of more than 10,000 by 2025.
Ensure that energy-poor and vulnerable consumers have access to solar energy, e.g. through social housing, energy communities or support funding for individual installations.
Supporting photovoltaics built into buildings for both new construction and renovations of existing ones.
Ensure full implementation of the existing provisions of the Buildings Energy Efficiency Directive in relation to the almost zero building energy standard for new buildings, including through specific guidance.
Member States should create strong support frames for roof systems, in combination with energy storage and heat pumps, on the basis of a predictable damping time of less than 10 years.
Member States, as part of such a framework and where needed to unlock investment, should set up a national support program to ensure from next year:
Massive rooftop solar development, prioritizing in the most suitable buildings for quick interventions (Energy Performance Certificate Categories A, B, C or D),
Combine solar energy installation with roof renovations and energy storage.
Projects with public & nbsp; funding
The Commission will monitor progress in implementing this initiative on an annual basis, with industry stakeholders and Member States. If fully implemented, this Initiative, as part of the REPowerEU project, will accelerate rooftop installations and add 19 TWh of electricity after its first year of implementation (36% more than expected in the “Fit for 55” forecast). By 2025, it will result in 58 TWh of additional electricity generation (more than double the “Fit for 55”).
Commission analysis shows additional investment in solar photovoltaics under REPowerEU will amount to € 26 billion between now and 2027, in addition to the investment needed to meet the Fit for 55 objectives.
Most of the funding will be private, but partly activated from the EU. The European Recovery and Sustainability Fund has already allocated at least € 19 billion to accelerate the development of Renewable Energy Sources.
Other means are contributing to this effort: Cohesion Fund, InvestEU, the Innovation Fund, the Modernization Fund, Horizon Europe and the LIFE program. The Connecting Europe Facility and the EU Renewable Energy Facility will also support cross-border cooperation on solar projects.
