Belgium, like many other countries across the world, just saw another solid year of solar power growth. 2012 didn’t come close to its record solar growth in 2011, and it was just a bit shy of the 528 MW it added in 2009, but 2012’s 525 MW now bring it up to a total of 2,600 MW of solar power capacity.

According to a translation from the APERe (Belgian Renewable Energy Association) website, “With 2600 MW installed to date in Belgium, [photovoltaics] can cover 14% of Belgian housing consumption (3500 kWh / year), or 2.8% of consumption total electricity (80 TWh / year).”

Here’s a chart of Belgium’s annual and cumulative solar power growth over the past 6 years:
