Solar PV Modules: Pollution Free Electricity Source

Solar PV Modules: Pollution Free Electricity Source | Solar Energy & Resources |

Have you ever wondered why you have been using non-renewable sources of energy when you can easily generate electricity at cheaper costs? Have you ever thought how the pollution levels would go down and your savings would increase if you used something renewable to generate cheaper electricity? Thanks to the advancements in the field of sciences, homeowners can now easily generate electricity through the use of solar PV Modules. These modules use sunlight to generate approximately 1 kilowatt of electricity for every 100 square feet of panel space. That will surely save you oodles of money on your rising electricity bill, while helping you generate cleaner energy. With more and more PV Panel manufacturers in India trying to encourage increased use of solar energy, you can easily get more discounts and special subsidies on installing highly efficient solar panels.

Solar PV Modules are an efficient, effective source of providing cleaner, pollution free energy. The power generated from these modules can work to decrease, slow and even stop global working. If you are environmentally conscious, then these modules can be important solutions for slowing the global warming crises.

Apart from being a pollution free source of energy, Solar PV Modules also save the society of hundreds and billions of rupees. Apart from reducing the threat of global warming, these panels help in reducing the cost of revamping the environment, ensuring that the regular electricity production doesn’t cost our society a lot of money.

PV Panel Manufacturers in India agree on the fact that the country is a ripe destination for Solar PV Modules. Considering the amount of sunlight this Asian country needs, it is the perfect location for installing panels and generating cleaner electricity. Apart from being pollution free, this energy source will also provide Indians tons of savings, with at least a few thousand dollars saved every year in an Indian location with average amount of sunlight. And the electricity bill isn’t the only way that a user saves. PV Panels can help in saving home costs, provide better designs for construction of new properties and therefore, help in tons of saving.

Because of its pollution-free solutions, Solar PV Panels also ensure reliability, especially in a country like India where rising and setting of the sun is fairly consistent throughout the year. PV Panel manufacturers in India claim that this will help users to get reliable amount of energy through solar panels every year. In fact, this provides energy independence as the users, particularly in areas where fuel or electricity is relatively costly will not have to be dependent upon fuel. And then, there are so many jobs that will be created for the youth if more and more people opt for solar energy PV Modules.

Overall, Solar PV Modules offer an incredible solution for global warming and prove to be an effective, pollution-free source of energy generation.

The Future of PV Module Manufacturing

The Future of PV Module Manufacturing | Solar Energy & Resources |

The PV module manufacturing sector is going through protracted downturn that was triggered in 2010. After years of growth and sustained profits, the industry is facing supply-demand imbalance due to aggressive manufacturing in 2010-11 and rigorous curtailing of subsidies. The imbalance is not expected to change in 2014 but as revealed in recent studies, the industry is likely to develop post 2014. The studies based on analysis of 100 countries also forecasted that the global PV installation demand must reach 40GW to 45GW to correct this imbalance.

Apart from the larger changes, the PV module manufacturing sector will also see double digits rise by the end of the year 2014 along with recovery in capital spending in the solar manufacturing industry, rise of demand in new markets and stabilization of module prices. However among these optimistic predictions, the industry faces stronger challenges such as worldwide criticism on the vigorous rise of renewable, problems in manufacturing value chain and ongoing changes in the government policies across the globe.
Having said that, there is a need to understand the changes that have occurred in the major PV manufacturing countries and what will be the dominant future trends.

The global scenario
China is expected to dominate the global PV module installation market and will see a rise from 6.3GW to a projected growth of 8.6GW. However, the major change is forecasted for Japan with the country becoming the second largest market after china. Japan is expected to see a rise from 3.5GW to 6.3GW in the coming years. On the other hand Germany has seen a downfall in the PV manufacturing market due to government imposed FiT changes and remained as low as 3.8GW.  

The global PV installations are expected to rise and some of the key future developments would be:

• The PVESS (Photovoltaic energy storage systems) is expected to rise from 192MW in 2013 to 753MW in the next few years.
• Solar capital spending is forecasted to rise by 42% and touch a mark of US$3.3 billion.
• The PV installation market in Latin America will rise from 300MW in 2013 to 1.4 GW.
• PV inverter shipments will increase by 13% generating total revenue of $1.8 billion.
• China PV installation market isn’t expected to touch the projected growth of 8GW.
• Unsubsidized PV market will contribute a total share of 700MW worldwide.

The Indian Scenario
Coming down to the Indian scenario where the PV installation has not achieved the targeted growth of 2GW in 2013 and remained to just 1.2GW. Against the present backdrop of oversupply of PV modules has caused trade tensions at global level, the Indian PV manufacturers filed a petition contending to dump the imports from China, USA, Taiwan and Malaysia. Further few other solar manufacturers filed a fresh petition in 2013 asking to include Japan and EU in the anti-dumping allegations. The consequences of this act can’t be predicted until and unless it’s enforced, but it’ll definitely have a significant impact on Indian solar sector.

Shashank Kirloskar's insight:

The solar industry is recovering at the global level and so is the PV module manufacturing industry. 2014 and years ahead will see some new trends emerging in the industry. Let’s understand what can be those future trends.
