Market Report 2013

Market Report 2013

Date : March 2014
Download the Report
With at least 37 GW of newly-added capacity globally, 2013 was another record-year for photovoltaic (PV) installations. The global PV cumulative installed capacity reached an impressive 136.7 GW at the end of last year, which represents a 35% increase compared to the year before.The internationalisation trend of PV markets already observed in 2012 accentuated in 2013, with Asia taking the lead over Europe as the n°1 region for new PV installations.
Global Market Outlook for Photovoltaics 2013-2017

Global Market Outlook for Photovoltaics 2013-2017

Date : May 2013
Download the Report
The "Global Market Outlook for Photovoltaics 2013-2017" includes PV market figures for 2012 and makes forecasts for the next five years for global and European markets. The world added more than 31 GW of new solar photovoltaic (PV) capacity in 2012 – roughly the same amount as in the record-setting year of 2011. This significant market growth came even during a period of economic crisis and industry consolidation.

Connecting the Sun: Solar photovoltaics on the road to large-scale grid integration

Connecting the Sun: Solar photovoltaics on the road to large-scale grid integration

Date : September 2012
Download the Report
“Connecting the Sun: Solar photovoltaics on the road to large-scale grid integration”, shows how Europe’s electricity system can integrate high levels of solar PV in the coming decades. In many ways, PV is already providing grid-integration solutions. PV is meeting a growing share of electricity demand at increasingly competitive cost without creating undue strain on the power system. By making smart choices now to improve energy infrastructure, European policymakers can ensure that the EU’s ambitious energy and decarbonisation goals are met. The increasing role played by renewable energy sources, including PV, requires a new perspective on Europe’s power system management.

Solar Photovoltaics Competing in the Energy Sector: On the road to competitiveness

Solar Photovoltaics Competing in the Energy Sector: On the road to competitiveness

Date : September 2011
Download the Report
“Solar Photovoltaics competing in the energy sector – On the road to competitiveness” shows that PV competitiveness with grid electricity can be achieved in some countries as early as 2013, and then spread across the continent in the different market segments by 2020. The study, carried out with support from the strategic consulting firm A.T. Kearney, shines new light on Europe’s future energy mix and PV’s role in it.
Photovoltaic Observatory - Policy Recommendations

Photovoltaic Observatory - Policy Recommendations

Date : March 2011
Download the Report
In the context of the fast evolution of the European PV market in recent years, the need to permanently monitor market dynamics has led to the creation of the Photovoltaic Observatory. The "Photovoltaic Observatory" identifies recommended conditions for market development and best practices for the sustainable development of PV by basing its analysis on examining existing policies of several key countries. The Photovoltaic Observatory also focuses on relevant regulatory issues, financial incentives, administrative barriers and grid connection procedures. EPIA advocates sustainable policies in order to keep the PV industry and market on a sustainable yet accelerated growth path.
Solar Generation 6

Solar Generation 6

Date : February 2011
Download the Report
"Solar Generation 6" aims at providing a clear and comprehensible description of the current status of the developing photovoltaic power generation world-wide and its untapped potentials and growth prospects in the coming years. During 2010, the photovoltaic (PV) market has shown unprecedented growth and wide-spread deployment of this environmentally friendly source of power generation. On a global scale, approximately 15,000 MW of new PV installations have been added during 2010, amounting the entire PV capacity to almost 40,000 MW.
Unlocking the Sunbelt Potential of Photovoltaics

Unlocking the Sunbelt Potential of Photovoltaics

"Unlocking the Sunbelt Potential of Photovoltaics" presents findings regarding possible scenarios under which the Sunbelt PV potential could be unlocked. The study further examines the countries which might be first in line to do so, given the attractiveness of PV for their economies and the overall investment climate they offer. While PV potential differs depending on country size and suitability, there is significant potential in every country of the Sunbelt. And jointly, the PV potential of Sunbelt countries amounts to a major contribution to satisfy power demand and decrease the world’s dependency on conventional fuel sources.
Photovoltaic Energy - Electricity from the Sun

Photovoltaic Energy - Electricity from the Sun

"Photovoltaic Energy - Electricity from the Sun" is dedicated to the widest audience and presents the many solar photovoltaic technologies, applications and benefits. This publication has been published in the frame of the Solar Days 2008 (updated in 2010).
