Comparison of installed capacity of the three leading countries in the photovoltaic market

the Internet 2018-12-26 10:04:56
globalSolar energyThe three leaders of the market – China, India, and the United States – installed a total of 48 GW of solar energy in the first nine months of 2018. China's 34.5 GW installed capacity is still far ahead of the world, and India is the first time this year with the United States photovoltaic installed capacity.
In the first three quarters of 2018, India’s new solar installed capacity ranked second. According to China National Energy Administration's public data, China's installed capacity in the first three quarters was 34.5 GW, compared with 6.6 GW in India (source: Mercom) and 6.5 GW in the US (source: SEIA).

United StatesPhotovoltaicThe installed capacity exceeded India for two consecutive quarters. In the second quarter of 2018, the United States installed 2.3 GW of photovoltaic power and 1.6 GW of installed capacity in India. In the third quarter, the installed capacity of new PV in the United States was 1.8 GW, and India was still 1.6 GW. China's PV installed capacity was 14.45GW in the second quarter, and 8.71GW was added in the third quarter.

Although the installed capacity of the United States in the second and third quarters exceeded that of India, India’s surprisingly installed speed in the first quarter of 2018 – installed capacity exceeded 3 GW, India, slightly ahead of India’s installed capacity in the first three quarters .

According to a recent report by the US Solar Energy Industry Association (SEIA), in the third quarter of 2018, the US solar market installed 1.7 GW of solar PV, a 15% decrease from the third quarter of 2017 and a decrease from the second quarter of 2018. 20%. The report predicts that the installed capacity of photovoltaics in the United States will be 11.1 GW.

As for India, Mercom said in a recent report that the Indian market is struggling to cope with issues such as safeguards tariffs and commodity service taxes. It is expected that PV installation growth will be weak in the fourth quarter, and new PV installed capacity is expected in India in 2018. Will reach 8GW.

As for China, according to the National Bureau of Statistics, by the end of November 2018, the installed capacity of photovoltaics in China was 38.11GW. During the period from August to November, the installed capacity of photovoltaics was increased by less than 2GW per month. The installed capacity of photovoltaics is about 40GW.

Authorities such as BloombergNEF, IHS markit, Solar power Europe, and IEA (International Energy Agency) have predicted the new PV market in 2018, with installed capacity ranging from 100 to 110 GW.

Among them, Solar power Europe predicts 102GW of global PV installations; BloombergNEF expects 109GW of installed capacity worldwide, and 46GW of new PV installations in China; IEA and IHS markit have significantly lowered global installed forecast data after China's 531 New Deal, and IEA predicts minimum installed data of 83GW. The most positive situation is the global new PV 101GW. IHS markit will reduce the global PV installed data forecast from 113GW to 105GW after the 531 New Deal. China's PV installed data will be reduced from 53GW to 38GW, and recently increased to 40GW.
