Installations of PV power plants in 2008


By Denis Lenardic, PV Resources, Jesenice, Slovenia

The past year was characterised by MW-range solar power plants and it was also a year with the highest market growth related to large-scale photovoltaic systems ever. Not only in Spain, where progress does not need to be commented upon at all, but also in some other countries where the cumulative installed power increased significantly. In the European Union progress was observed in among other countries Italy, Czech Republic and France; the German market however decreased slightly but in terms of capacity of installed power output Germany was, despite the market explosion in Spain, almost the same as in year 2007.
