France added 176 MW of solar in first three months of the year

Quarterly new additions were 15% lower than in the October-to-December window. The France Territoire Solaire thinktank said the lower volumes could be explained by the initial impact of the coronavirus crisis.


Official statistics show UK deployed just 233 MW of PV in 2019

The country’s cumulative capacity reached reached 13.35 GW at the end of 2019. The statistics also show that 2019 may have been the slowest year for the UK solar industry since 2010. According to the UK Solar Trade Association, however, the official figures released by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strateg are based on incomplete datasets and growth, particularly for PV systems above 50 kW in size, should be stronger.


Module prices continue to slide

After China’s National Day holiday, demand started picking up at a slow pace, but the anticipated installation rush did not occur as expected, due to land and financing issues, as well as the return of winter. These factors will also delay the timing of more than 6 GW of capacity to the first half of next year. PV InfoLink has thus downwardly revised its estimates for installed capacity in the fourth quarter to 11.3 GW in China and 30 GW globally, bringing this year’s global demand forecast to below 120 GW.


India will auction 80 GW of solar, wind capacity by March 2020

The Indian Government plans to tender 60 GW of solar and 20 GW of wind capacity by March 2020. This would complete the planned auctions for its targets of 100 GW solar and 60 GW wind installations by 2022, leaving two years for project execution, according to an year-end review by the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE).


India: 25% safeguard duty will threaten ongoing solar PV projects

The two-year period of the recommended safeguard duty is very short, discouraging any investment in setting up new solar manufacturing capacity, say analysts and companies pv magazine spoke to. At the same time, for solar project developers, the duty will impact tariffs to the tune of 12-15%, posing an immediate threat to viability of projects under execution, they add.


France deployed 484 MW of PV in first nine months of 2017

As of the end of September, the country’s cumulative installed PV capacity reached 7.68 GW.

Swedish Energy Agency revises statistics: new additions for 2016 totaled 79.2 MW

The new numbers reveal that the Swedish solar market grew by 63% last year compared to 2015, and that it surpassed 200 MW of cumulative installed power.


France registers 233 MW of new PV capacity in first half of 2017

The country’s cumulative installed PV power reached 7.4 GW as of the end of June. Around 115 of the newly installed capacity for the six months of this year come from installations exceeding 250 kW.


GTM Research: Global solar capacity to rival nuclear by end of 2017

Information from the latest edition of GTM Research’s Global Solar Demand Monitor shows that solar’s globally installed capacity is rapidly catching up with that of nuclear, and that solar could in fact grow to more than double nuclear’s current capacity within the next five years.


Brazil’s PV capacity tops 237 MW, 1 GW expected by the end of 2017

According to provisional numbers provided by the government, large-scale solar plants have totaled 145 MW at the end of June, while PV distributed generation has reached 92 MW.
