2013 review: Solar goes east - Growing global PV markets expected in 2014

2014-01-09 |

After the upsetting experiences of 2012, 2013 was a much better year for the global solar industry. 2012 started with a trade war raging on three continents and collapsing PV prices across the value chain, which continually pushed more companies to bankruptcy.

The CPUC is expected to decide on a final number for the target in the coming months. But many have seen the “cost-effectiveness” part of the equation with curiosity: “if cost-effectiveness is a requirement,” they ask, “why are procurement targets necessary?” It's a sensible question - and the CPUC’s conclusions show that specific targets are key to getting much-needed storage solutions onto the grid.
