Record results from Enphase, and the release of SMA’s solar microinverter in Europe will help fuel over 2 GW of solar microinverter shipments in 2017February 21, 2014“Record results from Enphase, and the release of SMA’s solar microinverter in Europe will help fuel over 2 GW of solar microinverter shipments in 2017” says Cormac Gilligan, Senior Analyst at IHS.
Tier 1 Solar PV Manufacturers Boost Expansions to Support Increasing DemandFebruary 21, 2014In 2012, IHS forecast the decline in PV capital spending would bottom out by 2013. With the solar shakeout seeming insurmountable in the not too distant past, positive sentiment has returned to the industry as demand growth and stabilized pricing has led to improved market dynamics.
PV capacity factors on the rise in CaliforniaFebruary 03, 2014On 17 December 2013, the California Public Utility Commission (CPUC) approved 164 MW of renewable power purchase agreements (PPAs) signed by Southern California Edison (SCE) during its fourth Renewable Auction Mechanism (RAM) auction.
Performance Guarantees – The gateway between technology and profitabilityJanuary 30, 2014The US ground market has grown by leaps and bounds during the last 3 years, from a little over 500MW in 2010, to over 3GW of installations (greater than 1MW in size), in 2013. The US ground market, as a market segment, is second in the world only to China. Not only are there large scale investments of over a billion dollars as with NextEra’s 485MW Blythe project , but many smaller investments at the 10-100MW range which raise a critical topic, and largely unspoken factor in project development.Subscribers Only
2014 PV Installation Forecasts – 40-55 GW?January 28, 2014Each year forecasts for how much new PV capacity will be added around the world are released. These are subsequently revised, updated, defended and invariably increased.
Top Trends for Global Photovoltaic Market in 2014 PredictedJanuary 23, 2014After two years of a punishing downturn, the global solar industry is on the rebound. Worldwide PV installations are set to rise by double digits in 2014, solar manufacturing capital spending is recovering, module prices are stabilizing and emerging markets are on the rise...
The recently published Chinese company 'cull list' will only have a minimal effect on global photovoltaic marketsJanuary 09, 2014“The recently published Chinese ‘PV industry standards’ will only have a minimal effect on global photovoltaic markets,” says Jessica Jin, solar analyst at IHS. “The government’s policy will accelerate...
Solar Inverter Shipments to Exceed 10 GW in Q4 2013December 13, 2013H2’13 inverter shipments are forecast to increase by 21% over H2’12 to reach 20.8 GW which, driven by a surge in inverter shipments in USA, Japan and China. These 3 countries alone accounted for 64% of inverter shipments...
Slowing European PV Market Impacts SMA Solar Technology’s 2013 Revenues and EarningsNovember 07, 2013SMA’s poor financial performance in 2013 is due to a sharp decline in the European PV market, growing competition, and intense price pressure in its key market segments. IHS predicts that the PV inverter market in Europe...
Slowing European PV market impacts SMA Solar Technology’s 2013 revenues and earnings, but it remains well placed to resume growth in 2014November 07, 2013SMA’s poor financial performance in 2013 is due to a sharp decline in the European PV market, growing competition, and intense price pressure in its key market segments. IHS predicts that the PV inverter market in Europe...
Polysilicon Price Stabilizes Despite Looming Trade DisputesPrices even set to increase during the next three monthsApril 24, 2013Following a sustained stretch of severe declines from February 2012 through the end of the year, solar polysilicon pricing has stabilized in early 2013, with prices steady in April and early May,...
Solar Polysilicon Pricing in October Declines by Highest Rate Since FebruaryWeak demand since January is the culprit; pricing to drop further before rebounding in DecemberDecember 06, 2012Global demand and pricing in October for solar polysilicon fell at the highest rate seen since February, indicating that supply still exceeds demand, according to the IHS Solar Polysilicon Price Index...
Global Photovoltaic Market Will Finish Year with Slower GrowthGermany, China, Italy, US and Japan will be the Top 5 solar markets for the yearNovember 16, 2012Global photovoltaic (PV) installations will finish the year with discernibly lower growth than in 2011, undercut by softer demand in light of continuing economic uncertainties and a general cooling in solar markets worldwide...
A Year of Turbulence for the Solar IndustryConsolidation, trade wars and price drops rule in the second halfOctober 22, 2012The first half of 2012 was tumultuous for the photovoltaic (PV) industry.
