Solar PV Research

Understanding the growth of Solar PV across Europe

About the service

Learn more about the current state of the Solar PV market in Europe, how it is evolving, what the current trends are, and what opportunities show the most promise.

Our Solar PV Research provides insights and data on how the residential and C&I markets are changing, how some companies are innovating in the way PV is being sold to customers, and how some new business models related to self-consumption will be accelerating.

LCP Delta’s Solar PV Research provides data, insight, analysis, and opinion that allow you to understand the opportunities to sell Solar PV to residential and C&I customers, how different players are positioning themselves, what the regulatory frameworks are across Europe, and how customers might buy PV in the coming years.

We are seeing a new wave of solar PV installations across Europe, mostly driven by the energy crisis and the drive from customers to become less dependant of fluctuating electricity prices. At the same time, the electrification of heat and transport is transforming the way customers are using electricity. Finally European governments are increasingly pushing the installations of solar PV across sectors, to be less reliant on Russian gas and other fossil energies.

At the same time, Europe is seeing a wave of innovative companies who are backed by large amounts of capitals, and who are extremely aggressive in their business model to rollout Solar PV across Europe.

All of these combined is likely to drive the PV market to a sustainable growth and will help make PV a leading source of electricity in Europe
