Provide a sound basis for decision-making with solid dates to help increase investment in new emerging solar technologies such as DSC.
REASONS FOR DOING THE STUDY
The development of a primary supply of clean and sustainable energy is a top global issue. Fossil fuels account for around 85% of global energy demand, with the burning of these resources linked to global warming and climate change. The statistics for increasing energy demand and depleting fossil fuels are alarming: (i) global energy consumption is expected to increase twofold by 2050; and (ii) due to depleting fossil fuel reserves, additional energy demand equal to today's total energy consumption is expected in the next three decades. In 2014 energy consumption stood at around 15 Terawatts (TW), but is expected to rise by another 15 TW by 2050, due to continued industrialization. Among renewable energy resources, solar energy alone has the potential to meet the world's primary energy demand, which would require covering less than 0.4% of our planet's surface with 15% efficient solar panels. Alternatively, using 25% efficient solar panels, a solar farm with an area of around 400 km by 400 km in the Sahara desert would meet the projected energy demand. Above all, energy derived from sunlight is 200 times more abundant than all other renewable energy resources combined. This report will provide information on DSC technologies, which may be useful to investors and decision makers. In addition, this report includes an analysis of market advances since 1991 — when Michael Grätzel — inventor of third-generation solar technology — published the first report — through to 2014, including forecast trends and sales from 2015 to 2020.
SCOPE OF REPORT
The scope of this study encompasses the major DSC markets, according to region, through to 2014, with forecasts from 2015 to 2020. This BCC Research analysis also compares DSCs against other commercialized solar technologies, such as monocrystalline silicon, polycrystalline silicon and thin-films (e.g., amorphous silicon, cadmium telluride, copper indium diselenide). Further, the report analyzes each technology — but will focus on DSCs and examine its current and potential efficiency — assess the current market status of each, examine their future market impact and give PV production and sales volumes for 2014, as well as projections during the period from 2015 to 2020. Various technical issues are discussed and a thorough economic analysis of each technology and its impact on future growth is presented. We also examined the main areas where DSC applications show strong potential in the short and medium term, and conducted a comparison with other major PV technologies in the market: BIPV, PV production plants and integration into low-power consumer electronics. In this report, we analyze the PV industry on a global basis, including manufacturing capacity and consumption by various regional markets. We also examine the research efforts of research centers and companies over PV technologies, in particular DSCs.
