Asia Growth, Mega-Deals Define 2012's Top Solar PV EPC Firms

Not surprisingly, increased solar energy adoption in Asia is manifesting in these EPC rankings . The firm's 2011 findings showed a number of big gains by Chinese integrators. For 2012, Chinese firms took four of the top 10 spots and eight in the top 30. The Chinese market "continues to grow rapidly" with massive domestic demand for ground-mount projects — and its EPC segment, thanks in part to links to state-owned utilities, "remains largely impenetrable to foreign firms," noted Ash Sharma, senior director of solar research at IHS. Also illustrating regional growth is India's Larsen & Toubro, which completed an estimated 200 MW of projects in 2012, nearly double what it accomplished the year before. India massively ramped up its solar capacity in 2012 to nearly 1 GW, and will probably top that in 2013. The emergence of multimegawatt-scale projects continues to influence EP...
