Researchers from NREL, Fraunhofer ISE and Japan’s AIST have released a new paper which looks at the barriers to deploying multiple terawatts of solar PV and what can be done to overcome them.
Increasing demand for solar power in China has prompted analysts to boost their 2017 estimates, forecasting an increase of more than 9% this year, with the annual global market reaching 85 GW.
The PV Market Alliance has released its official solar installation figures for 2016, which show a 50% growth from 2015 with a total of 75 GW installed. This was mainly driven by a mammoth year of installations in China, although the future would seem less auspicious as the two biggest markets show signs of retraction.
The collaboration between the two companies is moving beyond Panasonic running the Tesla/SolarCity gigafactory, and will enable Panasonic to re-open a factory in Japan.
