DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 12, 2018--The “European Solar Power Market, Forecast to 2025” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

Following a significant drop in capacity addition in 2016, the European solar PV industry staged a recovery in 2017 by adding 8.6 GW solar capacity. The region is expected to add 16.5 GW by 2025 and grow at a CAGR of 8.4%.

The European solar market generated 9.64 billion in 2017. It is expected to perform well in 2018 and generate revenue of 11.7 billion, increasing by 23.3% over the previous year.

Continuing declines in solar PV costs, re-modelled support schemes and regulations, and energy storage alternatives are the key drivers for the market. Self-funding, power purchase agreements (PPAs) and leasing will remain the main financing models in EU countries. New business models such as on-site direct wire mini PPAs will be used to overcome regulatory barriers.
