Terawatt scale by 2022
The solar field is no stranger to breaking records. Probably the most remarkable figure to emerge from SolarPower Europe's new 'Global Market Outlook' is that the global solar sector will reach terawatt scale by 2022-- just four years after the 500 GW milestone was reached. Michael Schmela from SolarPower Europe sets out the reasoning behind this and also various other key searchings for in the record.
