Global Solar Capacity to Exceed Global Nuclear for First Time....

The global solar market has been downgraded for 2017. A worrying sign? Hardly. Even with a 4-gigawatt downward adjustment in projected installations, it's still going to be a record-breaking year for new solar capacity additions -- yet again. The 81 gigawatts expected this year are more than double the amount of solar capacity installed in 2014. And it's 32 times more solar deployed a decade ago. (In the year 2000, global installations totaled 150 megawatts.) Those numbers come from GTM Research's latest edition of the Global Solar Demand Monitor , which closely tracks market-moving and market-dooming developments in countries around the world. One of the most telling statistics: By 2022, global capacity will likely reach 871 gigawatts. That's about 43 gigawatts more than expected cumulative wind installs by that date. And it's more than double today's nuclear capacity. In...
