USA: DisplaySearch has recently published a new report on the solar industry -- the Quarterly PV Cell Capacity Database & Trends Report.
Solar is a hot industry: PV cell production capacity will more than double between 2009 and 2013 as individuals, businesses and governments turn toward greener alternatives to satisfy their growing energy demands. It is also an uncertain industry: Technology is evolving; government policy is in flux; the market is global and hard to track.
Covering more than 230 solar cell manufacturers, the new Quarterly PV Cell Capacity Database & Trends report will illuminate developments in this industry, including which technologies are dominating, which companies are growing and where production is clustering.
Report highlights include
* PV cell capacity in megawatts, broken down by country, manufacturer, factory, technology, equipment, glass size, install dates and more.
* Historical and forecast ramped capacity from 2000-2013 with quarterly and annual sums as well as nameplate values.
* Graphical and database-style information for both quick reads and in-depth study.
