Global Solar Demand Monitor: Q2 2016

by Mohit Anand

The global solar market had a record year in 2015, adding 14GW to its annual rate of installations. 2016 is set to be another good year, with the market set to grow by 21%. The landscape is very diverse, with the top three markets making up the majority of demand, over ten major gigawatt-scale markets globally, and Latin America and the Middle East on the rise. At the same time, global solar policies are in a state of flux, transitioning away from direct subsidies to competitively procured solar, leading to more complex market dynamics and business models.
