Irving, Texas February 02, 2013


The booming solar energy industry has been a key driver for the global solar PV wafer market. The market experienced exponential growth during 2006-2011; however, it is forecast to witness modest growth over 2012-2017 and reach $16,263 million by 2017.

Lucintel, a leading global management consulting and market research firm, has analyzed the global solar PV wafer market and offers its findings in its comprehensive research report, "Growth Opportunities in Global Solar Photovoltaics Wafer Market 2012-2017: Trend Forecast, and Opportunity Analysis."

This report studies the global solar PV wafer market with an in-depth analysis of all four regions: North America, Europe, Asia Pacific (APAC), and Rest of the World. In the global solar PV wafer market during 2006-2011, Europe dominated, in terms of both value and volume, followed by the APAC market. Strong growth factors such as clean energy agendas and high electricity prices are expected to maintain Europe as the global leader by volume and value over 2012-2017, followed by APAC.

Lucintel has identified that declines in solar subsidy rates, wafer handling, and kerf loss are the major growth challengers. Functional and technological advancements, shrinkage in polysilicon prices, and incentive programs are the drivers providing the market with a competitive advantage.

SolarEdge Technologies - EV Charging Single Phase Inverter

The SolarEdge PV inverter combines sophisticated digital control technology with efficient power SolarEdge's EV charging single phase inverter offers homeowners the ability to charge electric vehicles up to six times faster than a standard Level 1 charger through an innovative solar boost mode that utilizes grid and PV charging simultaneously. This product is the world's first EV charger with an integrated PV inverter. Reducing the hassle of installing separately a standalone EV charger and a PV inverter, the EV charging inverter eliminates the need for additional wiring, conduit and a breaker installation. By installing an EV charger that is integrated with an inverter, no additional dedicated circuit breaker is needed, saving space and ruling out a potential upgrade to the main distribution panel. Whether you own an EV now or just want to be EV-ready, future-proof your home with SolarEdge.
