One of the most encouraging aspects of the UK solar industry during 2021 was the emergence of a sustainable commercial rooftop sector. Here, Finlay Colville, head of market research at SPP publisher Solar Media, discusses the types of companies that have been planning new PV builds since the start of 2019.
In an exclusive blog ahead of the launch of Solar Media's new rooftop solar report, Finlay Colville reveals how UK solar rooftop deployment is set to exceed 500MW next year in what constitutes a landmark moment for the sector.
Finlay Colville, head of market research at Solar Media Market Research, assesses how the UK’s utility-scale solar pipeline has developed this year as the industry prepares for a bumper build-out period in 2021.
Finlay Colville, head of market research at Solar Media, reveals how new entrants with ambitious build-out plans have taken the UK’s large-scale solar pipeline beyond 9GW, ahead of a free webinar on the subject next week.
Lauren Cook, analyst at Solar Media Market Research, analyses the current status of the UK and Ireland energy storage markets, detailing where there are similarities and differences in how the markets have developed, along with future opportunities.
Ahead of the eagerly anticipated RESS auction in Ireland, Solar Media Market Research analyst Lauren Cook delves into the project pipeline to understand where the successful projects could be built.
The pipeline of large-scale solar farms in the UK saw a massive uptick in April 2020, with a record level of new capacity added. Finlay Colville, head of market research at Solar Media, has all the details.
The latest monthly release of the UK Battery Storage Project report reveals over 1.3GW of battery storage projects at the ‘ready-to-build’ stage.
The pipeline of energy storage projects now established in the Republic of Ireland has reached 2.1GW, with an additional 330MW of projects located in Northern Ireland, according to the first release of the Solar Media’s new Republic of Ireland Storage Project Database Report.
Lauren Cook, analyst at Solar Media Market Research, explores the detail behind the data in the UK's battery storage market, as new applications continue to swell.
As much as 500MW of additional large-scale battery storage capacity could be built in the UK in 2019, increasing its capacity by more than 70% to 1.2GW. Lauren Cook, analyst at Solar Media Market Research, reports.
Finlay Colville, head of Solar Media’s Market Research division, takes a look at some of the emerging trends to look for in UK solar in 2018, and what they mean for the country’s largest asset holders.
With the release of the most recent Capacity Market pre-qualification register, the UK’S utility-scale battery storage pipeline has now reached nearly 8GW. Solar Media market research analyst Lauren Cook takes a deep dive into the projects that made it through pre-qualification, and what these results mean for the projects likely to get built in 2018.
The UK’s large-scale battery storage installations have reached 100MW of capacity, made up of around 50 individual sites larger than 250kW. However, as Solar Media Market Research analyst Lauren Cook explains, data from the UK Battery Storage Project Database report shows that this is just the beginning, with revenue stream patterns emerging to show how projects are proving to be successful.
Our own Finlay Colville reveals that a new 300MW site, to be located in the south of the UK, is moving closer to planning, shifting the UK large-scale pipeline towards the 4GW mark.
In a set of two blogs to be featured this week on Solar Power Portal, Finlay Colville provides the first ever full breakdown of who owns the UK’s entire cumulative solar PV capacity, deployed as of the end of 2016, adding up to about 12GW of capacity.
