Solar Demand Higher than Anticipated

While 2018 was an unexpected growth year for solar, the market outlook is significantly higher for 2019 when EU PVSEC will be held in one of Europe’s most promising markets – France

The year 2019 is starting with plenty of good news for the global solar sector. Several market researchers have published their 2018 analysis – and it is much better than what they forecasted half a year ago. After the world’s largest market China had announced its solar restructuring efforts on 31 May 2018, most PV experts decreased their market outlook – with the most negative downgrade probably coming from Goldman Sachs’ analysts, who said last July that the solar sector would only install around 75 MW in 2018, down 24% year-on-year when compared to the 99 GW installed in 2017.

It turned out to be very different. Again, solar surprised everyone positively. Bloomberg NEF announced its 2018 preliminary solar numbers in mid-January, finding 109 GW of newly added PV capacity worldwide last year. This is even higher than the 103 GW, Taiwan based EnergyTrend published in early January.

EU PVSEC in France; Call for Papers Open

The innovation platform for the global PV solar sector, the upcoming EU PVSEC conference and exhibition, will take place from 9-13 September 2019 in Marseille, France, one of Europe’s most promising solar markets. The French government is eying 45 GW of solar by 2030, which means an addition of around 36 GW within 12 years or an average of 3 GW per year. Major French energy companies EDF and Total have also announced ambitious solar goals for their home country. While EDF wants to install 30 GW between 2020 and 2035 in France, Total said in 2018 it is looking at installing 10 GW within 10 years.

As usual, EU PVSEC will cover all relevant PV R&D fields – from wafers and cells to modules and systems as well as policy and markets. We invite you to send your abstract to present at the upcoming EU PVSEC in Marseille. Please note: The Call for Papers is open until 8 February 2019.
