2014 Q3 France new PV installed capacity 286MW rose 41%

Polaris solar PV net news: the latest data showed that third quarter of 2014, France new PV installed capacity of 286 megawatts. However, the decline in grid-connected applications FIT subsidies and project size

France Enerplan professional solar Union released the latest data showed that third quarter of 2014, France new PV installed capacity 286 megawatts, not only from the increase, compared with 41%.

Data claims that three quarters of installed capacity of more than 1 MW photovoltaic power plant accounted for 46% of the total installed capacity of more than, compared with 62% in the same period last year. Enerplan report noted that France and its overseas territories total PV installed capacity has reached 5.16 GW, of which nearly half of the capacity (2.33 GW) is located in France four southernmost mainland areas.

However, the lower scale than in 2013 for the new project 8.7% drop to 1.975 GW. In addition, new applications to FIT the subsidy mechanism projects are falling seriously scale down 15%–installed capacity below 9kW system, installed capacity less than 100kW of project size is only 12 megawatts.

Reported in the third quarter, France 41% per cent collapse in the total grid-connected applications, to 177 megawatts.
