Photovoltaic Barometer 2014

78 798 MWp in the European Union at the end of 2013
The global solar photovoltaic market enjoyed a strong revival in 2013. Preliminary estimates put it in excess of 37 GWp, compared to 30 GWp in 2012 and 2011. The solar photovoltaic sector led the annual installed capacity ratings for renewable energies, taking worldwide capacity up to 137 GWp by the end of the year … a 35% year-on-year increase. At global level the high growth markets – China, Japan and America – contrast sharply with the contracting European Union market.
