Trends 2013 in Photovoltaic Applications. Survey Report of Selected IEA Countries between 1992 and 2012
As part of the work of the IEA PVPS Programme annual surveys of photovoltaic (PV) power applications and markets are carried out in the reporting countries. The objective of the Trends reports is to present and interpret developments in the PV power systems market and the changing applications for these products within that market. These trends are analyzed in the context of the business, policy and non-technical environment in the reporting countries.
This report is prepared to assist those responsible for developing the strategies of businesses and public authorities, and to aid the development of medium term plans for electricity utilities and other providers of energy services. It also provides guidance to government officials responsible for setting energy policy and preparing national energy plans.
The scope of the report is limited to PV applications with a rated power of 40 W or more. National data supplied are as accurate as possible at the time of publication. Accuracy of data on production levels and system prices varies depending on the willingness of the relevant national PV industry to provide data.
This report presents the results of the 18th international survey. It provides an overview of PV power systems applications, markets and production in the reporting countries and elsewhere at the end of 2012 and analyzes trends in the implementation of PV power systems between 1992 and 2012.
