UK to be ‘largest solar market in Europe in 2014’

UK to be ‘largest solar market in Europe in 2014’

The UK is forecast to be the largest PV market in Europe this year as a result of the rapid growth of solar farms, according to a new report.

It claims more than 120 large-scale solar projects have received planning approval, with many of them expected to be completed within the next 12 months.

China, Japan and the US were the top three solar markets in 2013, with Germany fourth and the UK rounding up the top five.

But more than 325 solar farms in the megawatt (MW) class will be completed in the UK by April next year, with more than 60 different sites having an installed capacity of more than 10MW, market research analyst NPD Solarbuzz said.
