Wood Mackenzie has predicted that the UK will join Europe’s “vanguard of subsidy-free utility-scale solar PV” in 2019 as project costs continue to fall. There are already a handful of sites that have reached that benchmark and a considerable pipeline is growing behind those.
Remote mines, cement factories and shopping malls are a major catalyst for commercial and industrial (C&I) PV in Africa. A new survey from consultancy THEnergy aims to capture the progress so far and the scale of the opportunity to come. The firm's managing director Dr Thomas Hillig explains more, including how you can help assist the work.
In a set of two blogs, Finlay Colville provides the first ever full breakdown of who owns the UK’s entire cumulative solar PV capacity, deployed as of the end of 2016, adding up to about 12GW of capacity.
