Competitive on cost, reliable, and with zero carbon emissions; in 2023 solar energy is able to meet the needs of more consumers than ever before. As a result, the number of countries in which solar is now achieves over one gigawatt (GW) in annual installations is growing fast.

The flexibility of solar technology and its scalability is also proving invaluable. From large industrial rooftops, to small rural communities, PV has become an ideal energy solution, powered by high-performance new cell and module designs.

Pakistan is one solar marketplace in which these developments are particularly evident. PV installations surged past the 1 GW mark in Pakistan for the first time in 2022. However, developing successful PV projects in the country comes with a unique set of circumstances.

Developing solar in Pakistan requires strong local partnerships and experience in navigating local regulations and conditions. And the country’s hot, humid climate means that some PV technologies perform considerably better than others, and that close attention should be paid for product durability.

Join this pv magazine Webinar, delivered in partnership with Yingli Solar, to gain insights into the Pakistan solar market, and how high efficiency n-type PV products can deliver higher performance and excellent financial returns.
