The race for carbon neutrality has sparked a remarkable surge in adopting renewable energy, particularly in the PV industry. This sector has experienced rapid growth in capacity and technological advancements.
Predictions from BNEF indicate that the global newly installed PV capacity will surpass 350 GW in 2023 and is projected to reach nearly 700 GW by 2030. Notably, utility-scale PV systems are set to dominate with over 50% of the total PV installed capacity worldwide, outranking other applications.
However, utility-scale PV plants confront mounting challenges:
- Expanding into unconventional geographical settings such as deserts, gobi, hills, mudflats, and offshore areas has heightened safety requirements for PV plants.
- The capacity of individual utility-scale PV plants is steadily increasing while on-grid electricity prices continue to decline.
- The rapid rise in renewable energy adoption, exceeding 50% in some regions, presents a significant hurdle to stable power grid operation.
The emerging market demands drive a fresh wave of technological evolution, propelling utility-scale PV plant development into a new era.
