By 2020 United Kingdom solar is expected to achieve unsubsidized

Polaris solar PV net news: according to Bai Linzhi Thema1 and supported by the European Union released a report, at the end of the Decade, United Kingdom unsubsidized solar power is expected to flourish.

The report is coming: unsubsidized United Kingdom of solar energy (In Sight:Unsubsidised UK Solar) expects United Kingdom solar markets in all three sectors (ground installations, businesses and households) within the next decade under the condition of no subsidies, will be able to compete with traditional forms of energy.

The think tank believes that United Kingdom solar market will continue to benefit from lower cost solar hardware and increasingly sophisticated supply chain, which will see the system cost and Germany converge.

The report’s authors, finance company AlexaCapital partner Steven ˙ Reed (Gerard Reid), explained: “We firmly believe that solar power will become the cornerstone of the global power system. “However, the report makes it clear that, in order to make the United Kingdom solar to achieve their ambitions without subsidy, must be strong and consistent policy support.

Therefore, the research has developed a number of policy recommendations to help United Kingdom solar boom. Is mainly expressed in the report about the Government’s plans to make large-scale solar projects to compete with onshore wind power focus based on contracts for support of the auction, the report predicted, this would have a “damaging market”.

Reid added: “the road ahead is difficult to estimate and difficult. Our United Kingdom information is reduced to the Administration’s support for solar energy, but we need to slow. ”

The report also noted that solar penetration increases may endanger the United Kingdom the traditional power companies operating. Look to the residential solar, the report pointed out that unsubsidized PV will rely on battery storage, to maximize the use of power. The report warned that fails to include distributed generation and adapt it to the public sector could find themselves struggling.

A consulting company focused on energy and climate policy GWG Energy Steven ˙ Wynn (Gerard Wynn), as a co-author of the report, said: “because the batteries cost continued to decline, families will be able, in the absence of Government support, deployment of solar panels. Public and policymakers have underestimated the pace and impact of solar market growth, this could be another surprise. ”

The study predicts, forecasts of solar PV in the United Kingdom can be seen more follow up of E.ON, the company recently split into two separate entities; larger dealing with renewable energy and the other for fossil fuel and nuclear energy.

Wynn and Reid summed it up: “capacity with continued growth trend, coupled with cost-cutting has caught the attention of policy makers and analysts. Ignore these trends would be like ignoring fixed telephone lines be replaced by mobile phones. The fact is that solar power cost in down the track … … Our United Kingdom information is reduced to the Administration’s support for solar energy, but we need to slow. ”
