UK - Accodriding to Solar Media (www.solarmedia.co.uk), now that PV component prices have dropped to a point where the Renewable Obligation Certificate (ROCs) incentive is once more viable; the UK’s large-scale solar market is set for a revival.
Greg Barker, Minister of State for Energy at DECC, has announced his expectations of deployment under ROCs to be between 300MW-600MW this financial year.
Just last week UK-based company Hive Energy put forward plans to develop a 25MW solar park in Suffolk, partnering with Moser Baer to deliver the £40 million scheme which will add to the -~132MW of large-scale solar planned in the country.
Add to that Anesco’s 30MW+ plans, including its 5MW solar park in Fawley, and large-scale solar in the UK is back, big time.
Solar Business Focus UK magazine, the quintessential news source for UK solar professionals, is already distributed to all MCS certified installers within the UK. As a UK first, July’s edition with incorporate a Large Scale Solar feature, with a special extended circulation to EPCs.
As the EPCs learn about developing a UK park (by Lightsource), financing and integrating the system (by Octopus Investments and SolarCentury), and even study the planning of large scale (by Cornwall Council), this is your chance to position your products and be the solution to EPCs equipment needs.
