It is likely that the UK will become the largest solar photovoltaic market in Europe in 2014, NPD Solarbuzz new report shows UK Deal Tracker.
How was it possible? Well, the Brits know how to appreciate clean energy. Dominance UK regarding photovoltaic market in Europe is largely due to a large increase in solar photovoltaic projects this year ̶ over 120 large photovoltaic solar projects were approved, many of which will be completed before the end year.
In the last six months, the Department of Energy and Climate Change launched the " Solar PV Roadmap " in the UK and reports "Solar PV Strategy", in order to reach 20 GW of cumulative capacity by 2020, says Finlay Colville, Vice NPD Solarbuzz cited by Clean Technica.
"While long-term objective involves both solar systems on the roof and ground mounted systems, solar photovoltaic farms over 10 MW will contribute enormously in 2014. "
To understand exactly how fast the UK market development, we must take into account the following ̶ so far, over 325 MW – class photovoltaic solar projects have been completed in the UK; of these, more than 60 have an installed capacity of over 10 MW. At the same time projects over 444 large photovoltaic currently in various stages of development.
" If Britain will be the largest PV market in Europe in 2014, global component suppliers and project developers need to understand quickly the dynamics of solar photovoltaic industry in the UK ", scored Colville . " The combination of choosing the right partners and attractive photovoltaic projects will ultimately determine winners and losers in the next 12 months. "
