INDICATORI_DEI_SERVIZI_A_BREVE_TERMINE_Q12023_1.jpgDuring 2022, the harvesting of renewable energy from grid-connected PV systems was estimated at 289.5 GWh, an increase of 13.2 per cent on the previous year.

 Stock of PVs: 2022

The stock of PV installations amounted to 32,452 of which 85.2 per cent were installed in the region of Malta and 14.8 per cent were in the Gozo and Comino region. The Northern Harbour and Western districts accounted for 37.5 per cent of the total stock of PV installations with 6,316 and 5,861 installations respectively. When compared to 2021, the stock of PV installations increased by 4.9 per cent. The percentage increases were highest in the South Eastern district (5.7 per cent) and lowest in the Gozo and Comino district (4.0 per cent) (Table 1, Map 1).

The domestic sector accounted for 93.5 per cent of the total stock of PV installations, followed by the commercial and public sectors, accounting for 5.7 and 0.8 per cent respectively. Most increases in new PV installations resulted from the domestic sector. The Northern Harbour district had the highest stock of PV installations in the domestic sector (Table 2 and Maps 2, 3).

Maps 1 to 3 illustrate the concentration of grid-connected PVs, featuring point data on 250m2 grid cells. Map 4 illustrates the spread and intensity of domestic PV installations per 1,000 population by locality, indicating that the top 10 localities were in the region/district of Gozo and Comino. When analysing the results by district, Gozo and Comino district had an average of 114 domestic installations per 1,000 population, followed by the Western and South Eastern districts at 84 and 68 installations respectively. The lowest ratio was registered in the Northern Harbour district, with 37 installations per 1,000 population.

Production of energy from PVs: 2022

Total kWp amounted to 221,148.1, an increase of 8.3 per cent over 2021. The commercial sector accounted for 52.0 per cent of total kWp, followed by 45.6 and 2.3 per cent in the domestic and public sectors respectively. The peak power rating of an average PV system in the domestic sector stood at 3.3 kWp, whereas that for the commercial and public sectors amounted to 62.1 and 19.2 kWp respectively (Table 3 and Map 5).

When compared to the situation in 2021, generation of energy from grid-connected PVs increased by 13.2 per cent, totalling an estimated value of 289.5 GWh. Most energy was generated in the South Eastern and Northern districts at 22.8 and 17.1 per cent of the total GWh respectively. Increases were highest in the Southern Harbour district (14.8 per cent) and lowest in the Western district (9.7 per cent) (Table 4 and Map 6).
