Solar Energy Outlook for 2014

What’s the outlook for solar energy this year? Renewable Energy World recently released a great article on how solar energy in 2014 will compare to last year.


“In Q3 alone, 930 megawatts of PV were installed in the United States — and in the last two and a half years, total global PV capacity grew from 50 megawatts to over 100. Sure, 2013 saw its share of failures and disappointments. But according to some of the best and brightest minds in the solar industry, the coming year may play itself out as the dividing line between past and future.”


Clean energy expert Jigar Shah thinks that one of the most heavily underestimated solar markets in the world today is the U.S. “I think you’re going to see extraordinary growth in the U.S. next year, through 2016,” Shah confidently stated. “Many are projecting somewhere in the neighborhood of 7,000 to 8,000 megawatts in 2016. But that number could easily be doubled to 14 megawatts in 2016 alone.”
