Presentation
Full-text available
Overview on development of photovoltaics in 2015. Analysis of installed capacities, cumulative installations, growth markets and sustainable development of PV markets. Focus on emerging solar markets with vital row for future market growth. Outlook on what will be future PV markets and how PV capacity will develop in years to come.
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The installed capacity of photovoltaics (PV) is rising steadily. Most PV is installed in highly electrified countries as on-grid systems. Further, there is an increasing number of emerging markets that show high growth rates and a relevant installed PV base. However, reliable installation rates for PV are available only for a small number of countr...

Analysis of global trade volume of solar modules and solar cells on per country basis.
Presentation
Full-text available
The installed capacity of photovoltaics (PV) shows a constant growth. The major part of PV is installed in highly developed countries. Further, there is an increasing number of emerging markets that show high growth rates of cumulative and annual PV installations. However, reliable installation rates for PV are available only for a small number of...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
The paper addresses the key question of assessing potential future PV development in every country. Especially after the phase out or in the absence of any financial policy support, subsidies or political barriers influencing PV development, a sustainable and thus highly predictable PV development is assumed. The method proposed in this paper is of...

Analysis of emerging PV markets. Projection of PV market growth until 2050.
Conference Paper
The installed capacity of photovoltaics (PV) is rising steadily. Most PV is installed in highly electrified countries as on-grid systems. Further, there are reams of small off-grid systems in rural areas of developing countries. Due to this, reliable installation rates for PV are available only for a small number of countries. For the end of 2014 S...
Conference Paper
Today's almost fully non-sustainable global energy system needs to be transformed towards a 100% sustainable basis. Solar photovoltaic (PV) is considered by a growing base of organizations and researchers as a backbone technology for global energy supply in the decades to come. Global energy scenarios of the recent years are compared in their level...

Further, there are reams of small off-grid systems in rural areas of developing countries. Due to this, reliable installation rates for PV are available only for a small number of countries. For the end of 2013 EP...
Conference Paper
Grid-parity is a very important milestone for further photovoltaic (PV) diffusion. An updated grid-parity model is presented, which is based on levelized cost of electricity (LCOE) coupled with the experience curve approach. Relevant assumptions for the model are given and its key driving forces are discussed in detail. Results of the analysis are...

Conference Paper
Mini-grids have been in operation for decades and supply remote areas that are not connected to any national electricity grid. Applications are available for rural villages, small cities or islands. Furthermore, mini-grids are used to supply remote telecommunication facilities or public applications, e.g. lighthouses, national parks, schools or mou...
Conference Paper
In terms of levelized cost of electricity, renewable energies are able to compete with cost of conventional grid electricity, as of today in relevant regions of the world. Partially, electricity being generated by renewable energy sources reached to be less expensive than conventional electricity from the grid. Thus, an electricity supply by renewa...

Conference Paper
The installed capacity of photovoltaic (PV) systems is rising steadily. Most PV systems are installed in highly electrified countries as on-grid applications. Furthermore, there are heaps of small off-grid systems in rural areas of developing countries. Due to this, reliable installation rates for PV are available only for a small number of countri...
Conference Paper
People in rural regions of various developing countries suffer on having no access to modern forms of energy, in particular electricity. This work is focussed on regions inhabited by these people and presents insights on the short financial amortization periods of solar home systems and photovoltaic pico systems. With amortization periods of about...
