Different countries have different energy policies and different situation between the photovoltaic installation owners, the utilities and utility customers. The market development for a new product follows certain «rules of thumb» for the market introduction and penetration. The author has described this situation in the paper “success stories of photovoltaic financing in Europe” 1997. Six years later it is an opportunity to evaluate the improvements on the PV market development in Europe and elsewhere.|
