Abstract
Solar power plants have become common during last few years in the middle Europe, especially in Germany. On the other hand, solar power has not grown in the Nordic countries, in spite of Denmark after the favorable net-metering legislation in the year 2011. Finland is one of these countries that has low solar power capacity. Many Nordic countries, such as Finland, have relatively low electricity price that is supposed to cause challenges for the viability of solar power production without legislation or does it? In this paper, the potential for solar power production in Nordic conditions is studied, simulated, and measured. A large scale solar power plant is built to Lappeenranta University of Technology (LUT).
