  • The Potential Market for Rooftop Photovoltaic in Thailand has Exceeded 100 Billion Baht!

    The Potential Market for Rooftop Photovoltaic in Thailand has Exceeded 100 Billion Baht!

    Apr 29, 2022

    According to "Thailand China Daily" report on April 17, home improvement rooftop photovoltaic power generation is becoming the standard for Thai real estate developers to develop low-rise housing projects in the future. Thanks to the reduction in the cost price of power generation panels and related equipment and the government's increase in the price of grid-connected power purchases, the current investment and cost recovery period has been shortened to 5 years, And the monthly electricity bill can be saved by more than 3,000 baht. At present, the overall cost of investment and installation of home-built rooftop photovoltaic power generation installations in Thailand has dropped by at least 66% compared with 6 years ago. The current price of a set of equipment with a power generation capacity of 3.2 kilowatts is 169,000 baht, or about 32,000 RMB. The development prospects of the home-installed solar power generation market in Thailand are very broad. It is currently estimated that at least 2.3 million households in Thailand are eligible for home-installed solar power generation installations. If 20% of them choose to install this equipment, it means a huge service market worth 137 billion baht. It is reported that major real estate developers in Thailand have made home improvement rooftop solar power generation a standard configuration for current or future low-rise residential projects. Especially in the high oil price environment and Thailand has abundant sunshine resources, the cost of key equipment such as photovoltaic panels will be reduced, and more and more families will choose home-furnished power generation equipment. UISOLAR has a variety of photovoltaic roof mounting solutions to meet the needs of the local market.

  • Cancel PV VAT! UK plans to reach 70GW of PV installations by 2035

    Cancel PV VAT! UK plans to reach 70GW of PV installations by 2035

    Apr 15, 2022

    According to foreign media reports, the British government recently released an energy security strategy shows that the goal of increasing the country's installed photovoltaic power generation capacity by five times. The strategy is in response to growing uncertainty in the energy sector, recent high oil prices, and volatility over the past month due to the conflict between Russia and Ukraine. Prime Minister Boris Johnson said: “We are developing a bold plan to expand and accelerate the development of cheap, clean and safe energy in the UK over the next decade, from new nuclear to offshore wind. This will reduce our vulnerability to prices. Volatility affects international energy dependence, and we can achieve energy self-sufficiency using cheaper electricity.” Regarding how to facilitate the deployment of photovoltaic systems, the UK government is planning to negotiate rules to simplify the roll out of photovoltaic systems and will help the photovoltaic industry create 10,000 jobs by 2028, which is almost double what was previously expected. Under the strategy, residential and commercial rooftop PV developers will be consulted on relevant permit development rights to radically simplify the planning process and will consider the best way to utilize public sector rooftop PV systems. The last revision to the licensed development rights for rooftop PV in the UK was in 2015, when the licensed development threshold for rooftop PV was raised from 50kW to 1MW. The UK government will also revise performance standards to make installing PV systems a must-have for new homes and buildings. The recent removal of VAT on residential PV systems in the UK is evidence that the strategy is already supporting the technology. For the installation of large-scale photovoltaic systems, the UK government will negotiate changes to planning rules to strengthen policies in favour of development on non-protected land. This includes ensuring that the community continues to be able to have a voice on developments and working to protect the environment. The British Photovoltaic Association welcomed the release of the strategy, claiming that by 2035, installed PV systems in the UK will grow from the current 14GW to 70GW, a fivefold increase in installed capacity and more jobs. Chris Hewett, chief executive of the British Photovoltaic Association, said, “The UK government’s plan to increase installed PV system capacity by a factor of five by 2035 shows that it now has goals in line with the UK PV industry. The announced plans, CFD auctions and potential Changes to the low-cost financing package could significantly speed up the deployment of PV systems and create thousands of jobs, cut energy bills and make the UK more energy secure."
