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.
Over the last several years, solar energy technologies have been, or are in the process of being, deployed at unprecedented levels.
The Renewable Electricity Futures Study (RE Futures) is an initial investigation of the extent to which renewable energy supply can meet the electricity demands of the contiguous United States over the next several decades.
The Solar Deployment System (SolarDS) model is a bottom-up, market penetration model that simulates the potential adoption of photovoltaics (PV) on residential and commercial rooftops in the continental United States through 2030.
The Sustainable Energy in America 2013 Factbook offers a fresh look at the state of innovation in our U.S. energy portfolio. This Factbook - researched and produced by Bloomberg New Energy Finance and commissioned by the Business Council on Sustainable Energy - offers simple, easy-to-understand benchmarks on the contributions these new energy technologies are making today.
Solar dehumidification uses solar generated heat to power a dehumidifier to remove the humidity from indoor air. This reduces the amount of grid-supplied electricity needed for air conditioning.
Solar heating and cooling is a clean, reliable and cost-effective technology that is reducing utility bills for thousands of homes and businesses. Today, Americans across the country are at work manufacturing and installing systems that significantly reduce our dependence on imported fuels. We need smart policies to expand this fast-growing job-producing sector.
