France makes further cuts to FiTs

Following its deliberations on April 19, the French Commission for Energy Regulation published the new feed-in tariffs for solar PV installations up to 100kW this week. The rate is dependant on the number of applications to the CRE in the previous trimester. Residential BIPV applications amounted to 37.4MW and non-residential applications were 102.4MW resulting in a decrease to the FiT of 4.5% and 9.5% respectively.

Ground-mounted installations will fall to €0.1079 and residential BIPV arrays have been set to a maximum of €0.1934.

    Now that the PV industry has unquestionably entered a new growth phase, all eyes are on which technologies will win through into the mainstream of PV manufacturing. PERC, n-type, p-type bifacial, heterojunction – all have become familiar terms in the ever-growing constellation of solar cell technologies. The question is which will offer manufacturers what they are looking for in improving efficiencies and cutting costs.

    Although the past few years have proved extremely testing for PV equipment manufacturers, falling module prices have driven solar end-market demand to previously unseen levels. That demand is now starting to be felt by manufacturers, to the extent that leading companies are starting to talk about serious capacity expansions later this year and into 2015. This means that the next 12 months will be a critical period if companies throughout the supply chain are to take full advantage of the PV industry’s next growth phase.
