Hungary could start accepting household applications to join the country's feed-in tariff scheme again "as soon as this year," Minister of Energy Affairs Csaba Lantos said in an interview published in the latest issue of weekly Mandiner.

The government suspended household applications to join the feed-in tariff scheme in the fall after home solar panel volume outpaced network capacity.

Lantos told Mandiner that Hungary's solar capacity could reach 10-12 GW by 2030, well over its 6 GW target.

Hungary's electricity network is being upgraded to boost capacity for more renewable energy, but that power should be used close to where it is generated, he said.

He added that the potential of energy communities, at the municipal or even residential building level, is still "untapped" and could contribute to cutting grid losses and reducing network load.
