New study - rooftop solar could provide 40% of US electricity demand says @NREL

Rooftop solar could provide nearly half of US electricity demand 31. March 2016 | Applications & Installations , Global PV markets , Market & Trends , Markets & Trends | By: Giles Parkinson A major new study has significantly lifted the potential of rooftop solar PV in the United States, saying rooftop solar alone could provide 40% of all the electricity needs of the world’s biggest economy, and around half if module efficiencies continued to improve. Rooftop solar systems could provide 40 % of all the electricity needs in the United StatesFlickr/orngejuglr The study by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory says the estimated potential from rooftop solar has been revised upwards by more than 80 % since the last study in 2008, mostly because of improvements of module efficiencies, building availability and solar modelling. In all, NREL estimates potential rooftop solar i...
