IEA: Annual New PV Installations To More Than Quadruple To 650GW By 2030 11 / 2022.Nov
A few days ago, the International Energy Agency said in its "World Energy Outlook 2022" report that photovoltaics and wind power are the most important ways to reduce emissions from the power sector. The agency said the share of electricity generated by photovoltaics and wind will increase from 10% in 2021 to 40% in 2030 and even 70% in 2050.

In 2021, the global photovoltaic installed capacity will reach 150GW. Solar panel prices have fallen by 80% over the past decade due to economies of scale and continued innovation across the supply chain. As a result, photovoltaics have become the most affordable power generation technology in many regions of the world. The International Energy Agency expects annual new PV capacity to more than quadruple to 650GW by 2030.

By 2030, annual solar and wind capacity in the U.S. will increase by 2.5 times from current levels, thanks in part to the introduction of the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA). The new target also drives a massive accumulation of clean energy in China, where coal and oil consumption will peak by 2030. The EU's accelerated deployment of renewable energy and increased efficiency means that EU demand for gas and oil will fall by 20% and coal consumption by 50% in the decade to 2030, the report said.

The average selling price of solar panels rose for the first time in 2021, rising by about 20% compared to 2020 due to higher freight rates and prices (especially higher polysilicon prices). The IEA said that while module prices remained high in the first half of 2022, continued innovation, in-depth improvements in materials and improved energy efficiency will further reduce costs.

The International Energy Agency said the energy crisis triggered by the Russian-Ukrainian conflict could accelerate the transition to a more sustainable energy system. While fossil fuel consumption will peak during this decade, it will still decline in the long run. The International Energy Agency forecasts that investment in climate-neutral technologies will exceed $2 trillion annually by 2030 through the U.S. Inflation Reduction Act, the European Union’s Renewable Energy Plan, and other programs in Japan, South Korea and China. This equates to an increase of more than 50% from current investment levels. However, this would still fall short of the 1.5°C target – a target that would require a $4 trillion investment by 2030.
