|Title:||Trends in photovoltaic applications|
|Description:||The IEA Photovoltaic Power Systems Programme (IEA PVPS) is one of the collaborative R & D agreements established within the IEA and, since 1993, its participants have been conducting a variety of joint projects (tasks) concerning the applications of photovoltaic conversion of solar energy into electricity. IEA PVPS Task 1 has the responsibility to facilitate the exchange and dissemination of information on the technical, economic, environmental and social aspects of photovoltaic power systems. An important deliverable of Task 1 is the annual Trends in photovoltaic applications report. This report gives information on trends in PV power applications in the PVPS member and other countries and is largely based on the information provided in the national survey reports which are produced annually by the nineteen participating countries. In a PV market environment of increased stimulation of demand and tightening of supply, this paper presents the latest available information from the 2006 round of surveys, compiled and analyzed shortly before the Dresden conference, and includes the topics of market growth, public budgets, the industry value chain, prices, economic benefits and new initiatives. This information covers calendar year 2005 and is presented in greater detail in the 2006 Trends report.|
