PVinsights: Solar Takes Advantage Of Weakening Dollar

The overall price of solar module continues its downward trend with limited scope. As the market is still struggling with oversupply, limited trade volumes have been seen after the holiday season in Europe and America as companies are still planning the year ahead at the start of 2017, resulting in a minor price decline in EU and US. Meanwhile, the price in Japan, India, and China remained firm this week due to relatively decent demand in the region. Furthermore, after the sharp decline last quarter, the overall price adjustment has slowed down due to weak dollar and slowing price competition in the global market, but the pressure resulting from oversupply still exists. Thus, the overall solar module prices drop slightly this week.

Solar Could Beat Coal to Become the Cheapest Power on Earth

Jessica Shankleman  and Chris Martin for Bloomberg:  Solar power is now cheaper than coal in some parts of the world. In less than a decade, it’s likely to be the lowest-cost option almost everywhere. In 2016, countries from Chile to the United Arab Emirates broke records with deals to generate electricity from sunshine for less than 3 cents a kilowatt-hour, half the average global cost of coal power. Now, Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Mexico are planning auctions and tenders for this year, aiming to drop prices even further. Taking advantage: Companies such as Italy’s Enel SpA and Dublin’s Mainstream Renewable Power, who gained experienced in Europe and now seek new markets abroad as subsidies dry up at home. Since 2009, solar prices are down 62 percent, with every part of the supply chain trimming costs. That’s help cut risk premiums on bank loans, and pushed manufacturing capacity to record levels. By 2025, solar may be cheaper than using coal on average globally, according to Bloomberg New Energy Finance.   Cont'd...

PVinsights: Holiday Season Tempers the Momentum of Price Slump

Solar module prices continue to drop this week, but the scope is relatively limited in comparison to previous weeks. Although solar panel sectors continue to struggle with oversupply, the thinning trading in EU and US during holiday season, the stabilized solar panel prices in China, and the tempered pace of strong dollar have all resulted to a limited drop of module prices this week. Because the solar panel prices in EU and US had experienced sharp reduction, due to the fierce competition before the year-end of 2016, the descent of solar panel prices in these regions have seem to be relieved temporarily this week. Moreover, although solar panel prices in these regions remain depressed, a lull in trading from the holidays has led the prices to be less volatile. Meanwhile, solar panel prices in China remain firm this week thanks to the solid domestic demand.
