A patchwork of policy drivers, coupled with rapidly falling system costs, presents a multitude of opportunities globally for solar PV investment outside of developed European, North American and Asian markets. These opportunities span the entire PV value chain, and their geographical dispersion as well as local complexity will present both growth markets but challenges for solar companies. In this study, IHS will examine the diverse, and potentially high-growth prospects of solar PV deployment in markets that have yet to emerge with the combined capabilities across its macroeconomic, energy strategy, and industry insight teams.
Europe's bubbling solar photovoltaic (PV) market is on the verge of bursting after recent years of explosive growth, setting the scene for significant transformation through 2013. As a result of this boom and bust, Europe's PV development landscape is shifting at a rapid pace. IHS EER's comprehensive study analyzes the shifting European PV market landscape, assessing the factors pushing Europe solar PV deployment, identifying development opportunities, and evaluating the strategies of developers, system integrators, and utilities.
The US solar industry is gaining momentum with over 18 GW of utility-scale solar projects in the pipeline, including 12 GW of photovoltaic (PV) and 6 GW of concentrated solar power (CSP). While the growth scenario for US solar is optimistic, the competitive landscape has shifted dramatically from several years ago. IHS EER's in depth study analyzes they key factors driving solar adoption across the US, factoring in regulatory mandates, developing cost trends, and the economic environment impacting project build-out in the near to medium term.
The solar PV value chain is rapidly diversifying as manufacturers and component suppliers strategically position to capture the 100 GW of PV forecasted by 2020. Key to the shift is an expanding geographic footprint, increasing manufacturing capacity, and the launching of next-generation technologies. This study details the strategies utilized to overcome the mixed regulatory, financial, technology, and demand hurdles shaping the market for PV component suppliers currently and in the future.
Amidst a rapidly changing energy landscape, the concentrated solar power (CSP) sector is battling to secure a foothold as a competitive renewable technology. Confronted with increased competition from other renewable technologies, and long development leads times, the pressure increased significantly for the CSP industry in 2010. IHS EER's Global CSP study provides actionable strategic market intelligence while offering a global perspective on long term trends across both established and emerging CSP markets.
