    Although China’s National Energy Administration (NEA) has not officially announced connection figures yet, IHS Markit analysis of the changes in its monthly trend survey, preliminary analysis of the shipments of the Top 20 module players and analysis of the inverter shipment figures, suggest that China has once again demonstrated its ability to deploy huge amounts of PV in a short time and installations in the first half of 2017 in China will surpass initial estimations by several GW.

    Nevada regulators reinstate net metering, seek to increase RPS target In June 2017, Nevada regulators passed and signed into law a bill that will reinstate net metering and continue to push for increasing the State’s RPS target to 40%, up from 25%. When net metering was eliminated in December 2015, demand for residential PV in Nevada was significantly reduced. Restoring net metering will have an immediate and positive impact on the market, increasing demand for residential PV from the second half of 2017. Increasing the RPS target will ensure that long-term demand for utility-scale renewable energy sources in the market will remain strong.
