Official figures published: China installed 12.92 GW of solar PV capacity in 2013; Shift to distributed generation in 2014

Solar interview on PV markets in Latin America with José Ma Llopis, Senior Vice President Project Business, IBC SOLAR AG

2014-07-31 |

Mr Llopis, when it comes to expanding solar power capacity, Latin America is expected to be the front runner this year with a growth rate of 35%. What are the reasons for the increased use of photovoltaics? Llopis: The increasing demand for energy in Latin America along with the level of dependency on imported oil and gas prompted the governments to promote their own power generation projects, especially for solar and wind power. The new energy agenda of the Chilean government states, for example, that around 20 percent of the available power capacity should be provided by renewable energy by 2025. Read more...

It may also serve as a precedent for setting a transparent, market-based price for solar energy. This report explains the origins of value of solar, the compromises made to get the policy adopted in Minnesota, and the potential impact on utilities and solar energy producers. Read more...
