Padua, Italy, February 27, 2021 (Solar Business Hub) — Eurostat figures show that Northern-European countries are keener on using renewable energy such as Latvia where the gross consumption of renewable energy sources (RES) amounts to 41.0%, which is the third-highest share of RES in the European Union (EU) after Sweden and Finland.
Latvia’s primary renewable energy sources are biomass and hydropower, however, solar power opportunities are also being developed even in low-radiation areas where photovoltaics is still convenient and efficient. Such is the case of the 200 kW ground-mounted system installed by Latvian energy company AJ Power for the fish-canning company Banga Ltd at its factory to reduce the company’s costs over the long term.
