Solar suppliers Proinso has extended its PV modules operation in Japan by opening a new branch in Tokyo.

The company said the new branch formed part of its strategy to focus on new international markets, with at least 88% its income is generated from international sales through its network of branches in Japan, Greece, Italy, US, UK, Spain, Canada, China, Australia, India and Thailand

In the wake of the Fukushima nuclear disaster, Japan implemented feed-in tariffs to promote renewable energy, expecting resulting drops in demand for nuclear power.

Japan is in the top-five ranking for countries with the largest PV solar capacity: 7,000MW installed as of late 2012. The market is expected to grow over the next years, in a country where 800,000 new homes are built on an annual basis and where solar PV installations are 80% residential and 20% non-residential.

    Looking back, 2014 was a year of convalescence for a PV industry still battered and bruised from a period of ferocious competition. End-market demand continued apace, with analysts towards the end of 2014 predicting the year would see between around 45 and 50GW of deployment. That has begun to feed through to the supplier end of the market, with all the main manufacturers announcing capacity expansions in 2015 and further ahead.

    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.
