Positive outlook for Italy for photovoltaics is not encouraged during 2014

Italy in 2014 will be a market of 1 GW . This year at least 100 MW of facilities will be built without any kind of incentive and the volume will increase in subsequent years, predicts analyst Ash Sharma interviewed by QualEnergia.it .

A recent estimate on photovoltaics at IHS, a leading consulting firm in the industry, expected at the end of 2018 in the world there will be a capacity of around 400 GW, a conservative estimate compared to others, such as Solarbuzz , which provide about 100 GW more. Qualenergia.it asked some questions about the trends in the world of photovoltaics in Italy and Ash Sharma, Senior Director of Solar Research IHS Technology.

Mr. Sharma, in recent years the forecasts for the PV market, especially when they look at more than two or three years, they have almost always proved wrong by default. What led to the growth of the PV to exceed expectations?

Many countries have introduced generous incentives, and this has driven installations and supply of components for photovoltaic systems. The prices of the systems you are so down considerably in recent years , enabling the development of new markets and fostering a boom in solar installations in existing ones. In many cases, rapid growth in several markets were caused by excessive incentives such as Spain and the Czech Republic, with the next stop of the supply tariffs.
