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.
The country’s cumulative installed PV capacity reached 1.6 GW at the end of February, according to the national grid operator.
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.
Solar has covered 5.8% of Italy’s power demand so far this year. Newly installed PV capacity for the first four months of this year, meanwhile, has reached 116 MW, around 6.4% up from the same period in 2017.
New additions for the first 10 months of this year totaled 352 MW, representing 12% growth compared to the same period a year earlier, and enough solar to meet 8.7% of total power demand.
As of the end of September, the country’s cumulative installed PV capacity reached 7.68 GW.
Around 48 MW of the new capacity comes from ground-mounted PV plants, while PV systems installed under the tenants’ solar power supply regime in July and August have reached 108 kW.
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.
