Renewable energy is “useful energy that is collected from renewable resources, which are naturally replenished on a human timescale, including carbon-neutral sources like sunlight, wind, rain, tides, waves, and geothermal heat” (Omar et al. 2014). According to the Eurostat database, the percentage of renewable energy sources in the energy mix of the European Union is increasing year after year (Europe, 2020). in 2020 target that the values reached in eastern European countries, 28.5% in Croatia, 24.3% in Romania, 21.7% in Slovenia and 16.9% in Slovakia and Hungary 12.6%. consequently, the government of Hungary took up our last position in renewable energy in 2020 and prompted it to develop a new climate strategy to improve this situation (Mekh, 2021). according to the new strategy, Hungary is estimated to be climate and carbon-neutral by the end of the decade. Among the alternative sources of renewable energy, solar energy is becoming the favorite, and with this research main aim is the utilization rate of renewable energy sources and the European green deal targets in Hungary. However, due to the drastic drop in the cost of solar panels in the energy mix of households, solar energy has become a favourite of renewable energy sources. In this research a survey technique was used, a survey was conducted with 210 households residing in Hungary. With survey find out what people think about their energy consumption regarding solar energy and how it fits today's challenges. the survey proved that people have important general knowledge about renewable energy sources. Even in 2020, a year when an economic contraction was experienced in many areas all over the world, great strides were made in the field of energy. It has come to a promising position especially in reducing foreign dependency on energy and obtaining clean energy. In the climate strategy, Hungarian government plans to create 8,000 mw of solar energy by 2050, which will be mainly used in households, municipal buildings, and the hospitality industry.
