first_imgWood Mackenzie: Global solar installations to hit 115GW in 2020 FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享PV Tech:In its latest quarterly market outlook, WoodMac forecasts that total solar installs will increase by 5% year-on-year to reach 115GWdc, driven primarily by a surge in activity within the Chinese market in the second half of the year.WoodMac forecasts that 39GWdc of solar is expected to be installed in China throughout 2020, an increase of 30% year-on-year, with more than two-thirds of that (27GWdc) installed in the second half of the year.Such a figure is broadly in line with other projections of the Chinese market for 2020 – IHS analysts revised their 2020 projections downwards from 45GW to 40-41GW, while the China Photovoltaic Industry Association’s neutral estimate forecasts 40GW to be installed – and comes despite short-term supply chain disruption and module pricing turbulence affecting some developers.Germany, too, looks set to record its best year for solar installs in eight years, with installations set to reach 4.5GW for the year, aided by the removal of a 52GW cap on feed-in tariff accreditations for new solar installs.The same cannot, however, be said in India, which continues to witness disruption caused by the pandemic. Wood Mac expects India to see a 42% slide in solar installs – coming in at just 4.9GW – despite the Indian government’s best intentions to help stimulate further deployment. Without additional policy enforcement, WoodMac has said India’s target of having a 100GW solar generation capacity by 2022 is unlikely to be met.And solar installations look certain to continue grow in the years ahead, setting new records in nearly every consecutive year out to 2025. The one exception will be in 2024, when the end of the investment tax credit in the US will dampen market appetite. By 2025, as much as 145GW of solar is expected to be installed every year.[Liam Stoker]More: Solar installs to reach 115GWdc in 2020 as robust recovery continues: WoodMaclast_img read more

first_imgAhmedabad: A resurgent Chennaiyin FC side has shifted focus to the AFC Cup in search of their first group stage victory when they welcome Nepal’s Manang Marshyangdi Club to The Arena Stadium here on Wednesday.Having drawn their opening group game 0-0 against compatriots Minerva Punjab two weeks back, Chennaiyin come into this one on the back of a narrow 2-1 defeat to FC Goa in the Hero Super Cup final three days back. Despite the loss in what was their third major final in five years of existence, Chennaiyin are buoyed by the upturn in their recent form. Head Coach John Gregory had overseen a six-game unbeaten spell in all competitions before the Super Cup final defeat, with four wins and two draws, a run which also saw them keep five clean sheets.CFC have been boosted by the return of midfielder Dhanpal Ganesh and left-back Jerry Lalrinzuala to the starting eleven in recent games. Both Indians made giant strides in their comeback from injury layoffs by playing from the start in the Super Cup semis and final.The Brazilian central defensive duo of skipper Mailson Alves and Eli Sabia along with custodian Karanjit Singh have also found form in both cup competitions. And young midfielder Anirudh Thapa was one of the standout performers for CFC in the run to the Super Cup final with two goals and two assists to his name.“The AFC Cup has inspired us and helped us regain our form and confidence. Playing in the AFC Cup is a huge honour and privilege for us and we wish to go as far as possible in this competition. Manang will surely pose a tough challenge, but we will be ready. The players are all focused,” said the Chennaiyin gaffer at the pre-match press conference. (IANS)Also Read: Sports Newslast_img read more
