There is a relatively large potential for the use of photovoltaic (PV) technologies in the Nordic countries, including Denmark. Optimally designed PV support policies are a main prerequisite for the utilisation of this potential. The paper provides an overview of the main (financial) public regulation measures to support PV development. Danish PV development is described briefly and the current Danish PV support scheme is presented and discussed in relation to some of the challenges of PV development. It is suggested that while Danish PV development seems ready to exit the demonstration phase and to enter the diffusion phase, the current net metering scheme may actually not be appropriate to facilitate such a transition.
