Finlay Colville, head of market research at Solar Media, details precisely how the UK’s post-subsidy solar pipeline has soared to just shy of 3GW, while simultaneously forecasting something of a revival for UK solar in 2019 with 500MW to be developed.
Efficiency gains and productivity improvements are set to dominate the PV manufacturing landscape again in 2018, with strong investments continuing to flow into existing and new cell architectures, with gigawatt-level status now becoming the norm for the manufacturing segment, writes Finlay Colville.
Having waited many years for such a far reaching event to come together, the solar industry has just a few hours more to wait before the inaugural PV ModuleTech 2017 kicks off in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
With the Renewable Obligation Certificate (ROC) scheme for UK-based solar incentives finishing on 31 March 2017, the domestic sector once again showed its resilience by installing a healthy 640MW during Q1 2017.
PV CellTech will take place in Penang on 14-15 March 2017, and PV Tech took time out to talk with the event Chairman Finlay Colville on what to expect from the event and a detailed look at the speakers and topics that make up the full agenda of the two-day event.
One of the key sessions at PV CellTech 2017 in Penang, Malaysia, on 14-15 March 2017, is on GW-cell expansions across Southeast Asia and India, and there is a powerful selection of speakers lined up here. PV-Tech spoke to Finlay Colville, the PV CellTech conference Chair, and head of market research at PV-Tech’s parent company Solar Media Ltd.
The most exciting talk title at PV CellTech 2017 in Penang, Malaysia, on 14-15 March 2017, could be the presentation from Canadian Solar titled: Black silicon & diamond wire sawing of wafers - the future for multi c-Si technology. Here, Finlay Colville talks to Guaqiang Xing of Canadian Solar.
