Photovoltaic installations on large parking lots?

In a recent press article, the Minister of Energy raised the enormous energy potential that the some 100 hectares of parking areas in Luxembourg would represent if they were covered with structures and solar panels were installed on top. This is why the deputy of the DP Max Hahn wanted to know from the minister how he intends to mobilize this potential.

« An engem rezenten Zeitungsartikel huet den Här Minister dat enormt Potenzial fir Solarenergie ugeschwat, dat déi ronn 100 Hektar Parkfläch zu Lëtzebuerg géife bidden, wann een se am Stil vun engem « Carport » géif iwwerdecken a Photovoltaikanlagen drop installéieren.

Donieft huet den Här Minister och annoncéiert, dass eng PV-Anlag op de Killweieren zu Raemerech beim Belval soll installéiert ginn.

An deem Kader wollt ech dem Här Minister fir Energie folgend Froe stellen:

– Wéi gedenkt den Här Minister d’Potenzial vun de Parkflächen ze mobiliséieren ?

– Ginn et scho Pläng fir nei Subside fir d’Geschäfter z’incitéiere fir a) hir Parkfläch z’iwwerdecken a b) Photovoltaikanlagen drop z’installéieren ?

– Wa jo wéi géifen déi ausgesinn ? Fir wéini kéinten se agefouert ginn ?

– Ass virgesinn, änlech dem Solarkataster fir Diecher, och e Plang mam energeetesche Potenzial vu Parkflächen z’erstelle fir rauszefannen, wou et am sënnvollsten ass, Carport-PV-Anlagen opzeriichten ?

– Kann den Här Minister weider Informatioune ginn zum PV-Projet op de Killweieren zu Raemerech ? Fir wéini kann dermat gerechent ginn, dass déi Anlag a Betrib geholl ka ginn ?

– Ginn et nach weider Projete vu PV-Anlagen, déi op Waasserfläche sollen installéiert ginn ? »

Answer

In order to mobilize the great potential of PV facilities on parking lots, the government has so far mainly gone the way of tendering, where effectively three projects have already been awarded the contract. In addition, smaller carports are already eligible for the feed-in rates. As far as the solar cadastre is concerned, it is being analysed whether it would not be possible to not limit it only to buildings, but also to include other areas. Meanwhile, the potential for PV plants floating on artificial waters would be rather small in Luxembourg.

Has the presence of the stink bug already been confirmed in Luxembourg?

The stink bug is an invasive insect native to Asia that causes many headaches for winegrowers, fruit and vegetable producers. These bugs can indeed cause very serious damage in vines, orchards or vegetable gardens. DP MPs André Bauler and Gusty Graas asked the ministers concerned whether these insects had already spread in Luxembourg and whether damage had already been detected in crops.

What about the validity of the Covid-19 vaccination?

Some countries restrict the validity of the Covid-19 vaccination for entry into their country. For people who were vaccinated at the beginning of the year, the validity of the vaccination will therefore expire soon. The DP MPs Claude Lamberty and Carole Hartmann asked the responsible ministers whether Luxembourg also plans to introduce such a validity limit and what can be done at EU level.

A “repair bonus” to boost the circular economy?

With a bonus, the Ministry of the Environment in Thuringia wants to encourage people to have their electrical appliances repaired instead of throwing them away. DP MP Max Hahn therefore asked if this would not be a way to strengthen the circular economy also here in Luxembourg.
