The "Global Market Outlook for Photovoltaics 2013-2017" includes PV market figures for 2012 and makes forecasts for the next five years for global and European markets. The world added more than 31 GW of new solar photovoltaic (PV) capacity in 2012 – roughly the same amount as in the record-setting year of 2011. This significant market growth came even during a period of economic crisis and industry consolidation.

After the euphoria of 2011, the European Union’s photovoltaic (PV) market slowed right down in 2012. EurObserv’ER puts newly-connected capacity in 2012 at 16.5 GWp compared to 22 GWp in 2011, which is a 25% slide. At global level the market generally held up, with just over 30 GWp installed, bolstered by the build-up of the America and Asian markets.

Disruptive Challenges: Financial Implications and Strategic Responses to a Changing Retail Electric Business16 Apr 13 - 10:08 CEST
This paper considers the challenges of integrating increasing amounts of distributed energy resources, the potential strategic responses to these challenges, and the likely investor expectations to utility plans going forward.
IEA PVPS published its new Snapshot report on Monday 8 April. Preliminary to its Trends Report that will be published in September 2013, this report provides estimated data about photovoltaic (PV) capacity in the 23 countries reporting to the IEA PVPS Programme. At least 96.5 GW of PV are now installed worldwide, while in 2012, we observed a ...
Germany wants to transform its power sector from nuclear and coal to renewables within the next four decades. This transition of Germany’s energy system is called Energiewende. The “12 Insights on Germany’s Energiewende” specifically describe the German context. However, we strongly believe that many of the developments we currently see in Germany will ...
WWF has a vision of a world that is powered by 100 per cent renewable energy sources by the middle of this century. Unless we make this transition, the world is most unlikely to avoid predicted escalating impacts of climate change. But is it possible to achieve 100 per cent renewable energy supplies for everyone on the planet by 2050? WWF called upon the ...
