The recent decision by the California Energy Commission to mandate solar on all new residential buildings starting from 2020 has had a noticeable impact on GTM Research’s solar forecast for the Golden State, bumping it up by 14% over 4 years, or around 650 megawatts (MW).

GTM Research has this morning published a new analysis which predicts global solar PV installations will exceed 104 gigawatts (GW) in 2018, and will continue to exceed 100 GW per year through to at least 2022.
The capacity of energy storage systems being deployed in the US will roughly triple this year (2018) on the back of rapidly falling costs and state- and local-level support, according to a new report released by GTM Research and the Energy Storage Association trade organization. So, to put that in simpler terms, the report predicts […]
The US smashed all prior records for installation of both grid scale and residential solar power in 2016 according to SEIA and GTM Research. Both expect the trend to continue into the first half of 2017.
64% of new US electricity generation in the first quarter of 2016 came from solar power installations. The extension of federal tax credits will give the industry a boost during the rest of this year.
Originally published on Cost of Solar. California is ground zero for solar energy in the United States. So, it seems logical to start our state-level solar energy deep dives here. In the article below, I’ll provide as thorough a look at California solar incentives + solar installers + solar costs as I’ve seen anywhere. Actually, it […]
Shayle Kann, the director of GTM Research, is predicting the US solar industry to continue on its impressive growth streak, and to play a “meaningful role” in the future of electricity in the US. The former Fullbright scholar, who now directs GTM Research, the market analysis, advisory and consulting division of Greentech Media, is behind the […]
The world’s top five most attractive countries for solar PV module manufacturing has received a boost from a “flurry of new module manufacturing capacity” in 2014. This, according to new research published by GTM Research today in its Global PV Manufacturing Attractive Index 2015 (PVMAX), which ranks the world’s most attractive countries in which to […]
While only 4 megawatts (MW) of solar photovoltaic (PV) + energy storage capacity was deployed in the US in 2014, significant change is coming to the sector, according to GTM Research. Altogether, less than 0.1% of all solar PV installations in 2014 were accompanied by energy storage systems. Amazingly, this is actually a decrease in installation […]
The US solar industry installed 1,393 MW of solar PV in the second quarter of 2015, pushing the country’s total cumulative capacity past 20 GW. The news comes courtesy of the new Q2 2015 US Solar Market Insight Report, published by GTM Research and the US Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA). Published on Tuesday, the report highlighted […]
