    UK PV DEMAND POISED TO JUMP

    PV Supply Chain Prepares for Q1'13 Demand Surge in the UK, According to NPD Solarbuzz; Strong Ground-Mount Demand Ahead of April 2013 UK Tariff Changes to Provide Opportunities for Low-Cost PV Module, Inverter and Racking Suppliers

    December 19, 2012 (SolarBuzz)

    Suppliers of solar photovoltaic (PV) modules and balance-of-systems components are preparing for a potential Q1’13 revenue windfall in the UK market. The windfall will be stimulated by anticipated downward revisions to Renewable Obligation Certificate (ROC) levels beginning in April 2013…[and a shift to] megawatt-scale ground-mount installations… to beat the end-of-March cutoff…

    “A significant pipeline of hundreds of megawatts of ground-mount applications accumulated in 2012, and successful projects delayed component purchases as global PV prices continued to fall. In what is expected to be a frantic rush for the lowest-priced off-the-shelf components, Asian module, inverter, and racking suppliers are now targeting further market share gains within the UK.”

    “Cumulative PV demand in the UK will exceed 1.6 GW by the end of 2012, with more than 94% of this demand installed during the past two years. This growth rate has elevated the UK to a top-10 global PV market in 2011 and 2012, and it has ensured that the UK is included in the leading PV suppliers’ global end-market strategies.

    “Moreover, the UK has a lower financial risk assigned to investments (compared to other legacy PV-rich countries within Europe), and many PV component suppliers are now planning long-term strategies based on sustained UK PV industry growth…As the UK PV market transitions from an emerging high-growth opportunity to a more mature and stable end-market, PV module and balance-of-systems suppliers have to adjust supply strategies to align with the leading downstream installers and project developers…”
