Emerging Markets Drive Global PV Installations to Record High

Emerging Markets of PV Installation

Recently, PV Info link, an industry research firm, released its latest analysis report, announcing that, driven by various favorable policies, the global PV new installed capacity exceeded 170 million kilowatts in 2021. That creates a new record high while the emerging megawatt market continues to emerge. The global PV new installed capacity is expected to exceed 200 million kilowatts in 2022.

The latest statistics from the PV Info link show that the global PV new installed capacity reached 172.6 million kilowatts in 2021, increasing 23.1% yearly. In addition, Turkey and other emerging markets performed well.

Dr. Smith, the solar energy expert, pointed out that more than 70% of the global PV market was concentrated in Europe and the United States. Today, the global PV market shows a blossoming, comprehensive development. Brazil, Turkey, and other emerging markets are an eye-catching performance. The number of megawatt markets has been raised to 20, compared with 11 in 2018 increased by 9.

According to Rodrigo Lopes Sauaia, CEO of the Brazilian Photovoltaic Solar Energy Association (Absolar), PV power prices have fallen by 70% in the past nine years, one of Brazil’s most competitive power. In this situation, the cumulative installed capacity of PV power in Brazil has grown from 7,000 watts in 2012 to approximately 13 million kilowatts by 2021. Nowadays, Brazil has become the third-largest renewable energy market globally, and PV power generation has become the sixth-largest source of electricity in Brazil.”

Dr. Smith also affirmed the role of emerging PV markets in boosting the scale of new PV installations worldwide.” South Africa, Saudi Arabia, Morocco, Algeria, and other PV markets have seen significant new demand, driving the rapid expansion of the PV industry in the region. ”

Meanwhile, Dr. Smith also highlighted the positive effects of the long-term power purchase agreements (PPAs) that multiple governments allow PV power producers to sign with green power purchasers. “Long-term fixed tariffs are conducive to enhancing the willingness of power generation companies to develop and build power plants. After implementing the PPA policy in Europe, the installed scale of PV power plants that signed PPAs exceeded 30 million kilowatts, driving the growth of the newly installed scale of PV in Europe.

Industry media journalists pointed out that governments are increasing their support for developing PV power projects to achieve their respective carbon reduction goals. According to the world photovoltaic industry association, as of November 2021, 177 countries worldwide are considering or have announced net-zero emission targets, accounting for 90 percent of the total, which has also contributed to the increased recognition of PV power generation by large companies. Citing data from a third-party industry research firm, the reporter indicated that 67 companies signed an initiative to commit to 100% green energy usage in 2021. By the end of 2021, 355 companies worldwide had made these commitments.

PV Info link believes that global PV market demand will further increase in the above context. In 2022, the global PV new installed capacity will reach 214 million kilowatts.

In the coming years, Dr. Smith expects that the global PV new installed capacity will maintain rapid growth; and the annual increasing installed capacity will reach 232 million kilowatts – 286 million kilowatts from 2022-2025.

新兴市场推动全球光伏装机量创新高

Emerging Markets of PV Installation

近日,行业研究公司PV Info link发布最新分析报告,宣布在各种利好政策的推动下,2021年全球光伏新增装机容量超过1.7亿千瓦,这创造了一个新的历史高点。预计2022年全球光伏新增装机容量将超过2亿千瓦。PV Info link的最新统计数据显示,2021年全球光伏新增装机容量达到1.726亿千瓦,年增长23.1%。此外,土耳其和其他新兴市场表现良好。

太阳能专家史密斯博士指出,全球70%以上的光伏市场集中在欧洲和美国。如今,全球光伏市场呈现出百花齐放、全面发展的局面。巴西、土耳其和其他新兴市场表现抢眼。兆瓦级市场数量已提升至20个,与2018年的11个相比增加了9个。

据巴西光伏太阳能协会(Absolar)首席执行官Rodrigo Lopes Sauaia介绍,光伏发电价格在过去九年中下降了70%,是巴西最具竞争力的电力之一。在这种情况下,巴西的光伏发电累计装机容量已从2012年的7000瓦增长到2021年的约1300万千瓦。如今,巴西已成为全球第三大可再生能源市场,光伏发电已成为巴西的第六大电力来源”。史密斯博士还肯定了新兴光伏市场在推动全球新增光伏装机规模方面的作用”。南非、沙特阿拉伯、摩洛哥、阿尔及利亚和其他光伏市场出现了大量的新需求,推动了该地区光伏产业的快速扩张。”

同时,史密斯博士还强调了多国政府允许光伏发电产品与绿色电力采购商签订长期购电协议(PPA)的积极作用。”长期固定电价有利于增强发电企业开发建设电站的意愿。欧洲实施PPA政策后,签订PPA的光伏电站装机规模超过3000万千瓦,带动了欧洲光伏新增装机规模的增长。

行业媒体记者指出,各国政府为实现各自的碳减排目标,纷纷加大对发展光伏发电项目的支持力度。据世界光伏产业协会统计,截至2021年11月,全球有177个国家正在考虑或已经宣布净零排放目标,占总数的90%,这也促进了大型企业对光伏发电的认可度提高。

记者引用第三方行业研究公司的数据表示,有67家公司签署了一份倡议书,承诺在2021年实现100%的绿色能源使用。到2021年底,全球有355家公司做出了上述承诺。PV Info link认为,在上述背景下,全球光伏市场需求将进一步增加。2022年,全球光伏新增装机容量将达到2.14亿千瓦。

未来几年,史密斯博士预计,全球光伏新增装机容量将保持快速增长;2022-2025年,每年增加的装机容量将达到2.32亿千瓦-2.86亿千瓦。
