Policy and Emerging Markets: Setting the Stage for the Next Wave of Solar Deployment

July 8, 2016 | State of the Market Report

Solar has risen to become a credible source of energy as a result of supportive policies from the mature markets of Germany, the U.S., and China. However, as these country dial-back their policy support, a new set of countries are emerging that are targeting increased solar deployment through a host of policy support. Given the varied conditions found in each country, it is unclear how impactful these new markets will be to the global solar market. As such, all industry stake-holder should be aware of how the global landscape of the solar industry will shift as emerging markets take hold. Within Latin America, Southeast Asia, the Middle East, and Africa we find there will be key leaders while most of the largest markets will host steady deployment.
