Conflict: Existing solar-related trade remedy orders and investigations between the United States and China are causing significant adverse and unintended effects across the global solar supply chain, without sufficiently
A new report from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) finds that Chinese success in solar manufacturing is driven primarily by scale and supply-chain development, instead of low labor costs and/or direct subsidies. The report suggests that Chinese success could be replicated in the U.S.
With widespread U.S. concerns over India’s trade practices and policies, the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) – along with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) and nearly 40 other leading American business groups – are urging Vice President Biden to raise these concerns during his visit to India later this month.
The U.S. solar market had a strong first quarter of what is expected to be another record year for the industry. Installations grew significantly over deployment levels in Q1 2012. The growth in Q1 2013 was driven in part by record first quarters in the residential and utility segments.
The Solar Energy Industries Association has joined the U.S.
Add summary: U.S. Solar Market Insight™ is a collaboration between the Solar Energy Industries Association® (SEIA®) and GTM Research that brings high-quality, solar-specific analysis and forecasts to industry professionals in the form of quarterly and annual reports. Released March, 2013.
In 2007, the U.S. solar energy industry saw a glimpse of a gigawatt future. There was signi?cant growth in the commercial and residential PV markets and a new utility-scale segment for PV emerged with the fastest growth of all segments representing over 15 percent of the annual U.S. installed PV capacity. The ?rst concentrating solar power plant was built in more than 15 years with dozens more utility-scale projects in the pipeline. The expansion of the solar water heating market continued. Thousands of U.S. jobs were created and billions of dollars were invested. And, the industry strengthened its presence in Washington and our united coalition support across the country.
