Solar produces 6,000 MW of electricity in Hungary

Industrial-scale solar parks and households' inputs combined have managed to produce 6,000 megawatts of electricity in Hungary, the energy minister said on Tuesday.

On a sunny day solar produces the country’s basic electricity needs, with average consumption being 5,500-6,500 MW, Csaba Lantos said at the inauguration of MVM Next Energiakereskedelmi’s customer service office in Kalocsa, in central-southern Hungary.

He said the government planned to increase the share of renewable energy further and significantly expand storage capacity. Meanwhile, the Paks 1 nuclear power plant’s life cycle is being extended and the Paks 2 power plant is being built, he noted.

“We’re working to make sure that Hungary’s power generation capacity is greater than demand for electricity,” he added.
