DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The “Africa Solar Energy Market Size and Outlook Report by Installed Capacity, by Demand, by Project Capacity (2019-2029)” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The African solar energy market has enormous potential due to its abundant solar resource. Africa is also called a ‘Sun Continent’. Over half of the population in Africa do not have access to electricity. Solar energy if properly deployed, can help the region to reduce its dependence on traditional power types such as coal and oil. It is also an efficient way of power generation in remote areas.

Indeed, there is a vast potential for solar energy to expand renewable energy share in the total energy mix. Governments across the region are devising ways to support the solar energy market. Many global solar energy giants are also taking keen interest and increasing their focus on the region. The enormous untapped potential has yet to be explored in countries such as Algeria, Angola, Egypt, Ethiopia, Ghana, Morocco, Namibia, Nigeria and Tanzania.

In South Africa, the Renewable Energy Independent Power producer Programme (REIPPPP) has been playing a pivotal role in supporting the solar energy market. We expect that the country will continue to support the renewable market, particularly solar energy and will remain the dominant player in the region.

Kenya is also keen to produce more electricity from solar power parks. The government is providing various incentives such as feed-in-tariff for using solar panels. Kenya has set a target to achieve 200 MW of solar panels electricity by 2022.

The solar energy market in Africa is far behind than other regions due to poor economic conditions and lack of infrastructure, among other reasons. Moreover, the political and economic turmoil in the past had pushed most countries far behind in the developing energy infrastructure. The lack of funding and technical know-how is some major factors which keep the solar energy industry underdeveloped.

We expect that in most countries, the existing power infrastructure needs to be upgraded while new capacities need to be installed. Solar energy can be in the best position to help the region in the energy sector through faster and efficient ways.

Key Topics Covered:

DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The “North East Asia Solar Energy Market Size and Outlook Report by Installed Capacity, by Demand, by Project Capacity (2019-2029)” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The solar energy market in North East Asia has shown remarkable growth, mainly driven by China. Over the past few years, China has taken over all other countries in clean and eco-friendly energy in terms of installed capacity, including solar projects.

China is currently considered the leader in the solar market with many major companies expanding their business globally. The Chinese government is continuously trying to support the sector further by providing various incentives. Some new laws are passed in China to control carbon emissions and to reduce dependency on petroleum-based products. By toughening regulations around electricity produced from fossil fuel, renewable sources like solar energy will likely to gain more market share.

Japan, South Korea and Taiwan are also active in promoting solar energy. Japan plans to increase the electricity generation mix mostly from solar PV, but it is still facing some several challenges in promoting its domestic solar PV industry. The cost of solar system installation and generation are still high. In addition, the grid and land availability are the other two factors responsible for slow growth in the PV market.

The Japanese government is investing heavily in solar energy with the introduction of feed-in-tariff and subsidies. It has been a global player working across the entire value chain including polysilicon, ingot, wafer, cells and module producers. Japan is mainly focusing on the export of solar panels as the domestic installation level is lower than annual production.

South Korea is trying to increase its renewable power share. It has a strong solar PV manufacturing industry base. It plans to cut its dependence on nuclear power, which would help solar PV adoption. The Korean government introduced a feed-in tariff system, making it compulsory for power generation companies to purchase electricity produced from solar panels. South Korea is also encouraging power generation companies to invest in building large scale solar power plants.

Key Topics Covered:

  • Solar energy generation by country 2014-2029 (TWh)
  • Solar power capacity by country 2014-2029 (GW)
  • Solar power project capacity by plants 2019 (MW)

DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The “North America Solar Energy Market Size and Outlook Report by Installed Capacity, by Demand, by Project Capacity (2019-2029)” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The US solar market is expected to face some issues as the Trump administration priorities are different from the previous governments. The US imposed 30% import tariff on crystalline silicon solar cells and modules from China in 2018, which is scheduled to decrease by 5% yearly, ultimately reaching 15% in 2021. We expect that the tariffs impacted some solar projects due to increased solar panel prices, but local manufacturers are benefiting from tariffs.

Solar Energy Market in North America is mainly dominated by the US. Canada, Mexico and the US have set various regulatory frameworks and policies to develop their renewable energy from various sources such as solar and wind power. Feed-in Tariffs (FIT) and Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS) systems are also adopted the US, Canada and Mexico to endorse the renewable energies.

The solar energy market in the US is on the rise due to the increasing demand for electricity. Furthermore, the falling costs of solar power modules coupled with the government initiatives to increase renewable shares in the total energy mix, are driving the solar power market in the country. In addition, environmental policies in favour of renewable energy, the expanding investor interest in the sector and the advanced technologies have also underpinned the solar energy market.

Some other key factors behind the solar power market growth are the declining cost of solar generation, the advancement in battery storage technology, and grid operators growing expertise is helping to compete with other conventional technologies.

The US states also set their capacity targets, which has further fuelled the solar market. The solar power sector becomes one of the largest and fastest-growing markets for electricity generation. The solar electricity is now economically competitive with conventional energy sources in various states of the country, including California, Hawaii, Texas and Minnesota as they aim to switch to renewable energy resources. Some states are even targeting for 100% renewable such as Hawaii set a target to have 100% renewable energy by 2045.

Canada and Mexico also set some goals for solar energy as both countries have the potential to generate a substantial amount of solar energy. Both countries are working to encourage the use of solar energy in residential, commercial and industrial sectors. The solar market is getting traction as the Canadian government planned to achieve the target of 6,300 MW of solar electricity by 2020, although it would account for just 1% of total electricity generated in Canada.
