SolarSuperState Association forecast: 1,300 GW of solar PV capacity will be installed in 2021 globally

On November 24th , 2016 the SolarSuperState Association (Zurich, Switzerland) published its Annual Report 2015 with a 5 year forecast of its president Wolfgang Hein for cumulative global capacities of solar photovoltaics (PV) power. According to Hein 1,300 GW of solar photovoltaic generation capacity will be installed in 2021 globally (2015: some 230 GW). The forecast is based on the assumption of an average annual growth rate of the net annual additions of 50% per year in the five year period 2017–2021. “Making global warming and the phase-out of fossil and nuclear fuels the first political priorities would require a substantial higher annual growth rate than 50% per year,” Hein says. “In order to avoid the collapse of the global economy as a result of massive climate change and the following migration, the short term shift to renewable energies is necessary.” A political...
