According to the information from WoodMac, 19 percent of residential rooftops comprise products by Enphase. Over the year to come, the NASDAQ-listed business plans to enter the markets of 8 more countries in Europe and to double the revenue generated by the European projects. The company foresees the international residential SAM to increase from the current 2.5bn USD as of 2019 up to 4bn USD in the year 2022. If taken together with off grid solar-plus-storage, small-scale commercial solar, and residential storage, the values are to rise to 12.5bn USD compared to 3.3bn USD in the current year.
