Climbing the ladder to the top: Italian photovoltaic market report


By Daniel Pohl, Head of the Corporate Communications Department, EuPD Research

Apart from some obstacles and bureaucratic hindrances, the Italian PV market has recently joined the upper echelons of the solar industry. Along with small and medium-sized systems, the commercial and large-scale segment in particular has a great deal of promise. Even though the local industry is still trying to block the domestic market from international competitors, increasing numbers of foreign investors are entering the market.
