Maria Chea, Camron Barati | January 22, 2018
In the second half of 2017, a number of utility-scale PV solar projects were awarded contracts with record low PPA prices for the US market. The decline of PPA prices has been primarily driven by continued technology and manufacturing innovation across the value chain. What is striking about the announced prices for these utility-scale plants is the timeline in which these deals have been made. Despite the strategies developers may have for their projects, success may ultimately depend on how stringent the remedies for the trade case will be.
Camron Barati | January 16, 2018
IHS Markit recently cut its PV installation forecast for the United States by over 6 GW from 2018 to 2021, primarily due to a weakened environment for utility-scale PV as new import tariffs threaten to negatively impact the economics of such projects. Provided new tariffs are eventually imposed at or around the 30% level proposed by the United States International Trade Commission (US ITC), IHS Markit forecasts the United States will remain a top 3 global market for PV, along with China and India, installing a total of 57 GW from 2018 to 2021.
