  • This market report offers an incisive and reliable overview of the photovoltaic sector of the country for the next long-term period, 2024 ÷ 2033. The United Kingdom (UK) is an island country located off the northwestern coast of mainland Europe. The UK comprises the whole island of Great Britain—which contains England, Wales, and Scotland—as well as the northern portion of the island of Ireland. The name Britain is sometimes used to refer to the United Kingdom. The capital is London, among the world’s leading commercial, financial, and cultural centres. The country has a total area of approximately 248,532 square kilometres (95,960 sq mi), comprising the island of Great Britain, the northeastern one-sixth of the island of Ireland (Northern Ireland) and many smaller islands. This makes it the 7th largest island country in the world.

    The UK offers prosumers some of the widest possibilities in Europe through financial incentives such as the Smart Export Guarantee (SEG), a sort of market-based mechanism that replaced the feed-in tariff or direct subsidies, but also by allowing prosumers to make the best use of their assets, providing their flexibility to the energy system. The UK's residential solar market is currently in a state of rapid growth. This growth is being driven by a number of factors, including rising electricity prices, the desire for energy independence, the increasing availability of financing options, and the growing popularity of solar battery storage systems. The current cumulative installed PV capacity in the UK grew up from 2.8 GW in 2013 to over 15.9 GW at the end of 2023.  The country is among the best performers in Europe in the share of installed small-scale solar generation capacity (<1 MW). Current government plans and legislative changes show firm intentions to continue the existing support and increase solar self-consumption and the number of prosumers.

    The report provides a complete picture of the market situation, dynamics, current issues and future prospects. You will find more than 120 pages of valuable information in this unique, in-depth analysis of the UK photovoltaic market will receive an overview of how the military conflict in Ukraine and the European Union's decision to make a significant reduction of Russian gas and other energy commodities import will impact it. With comprehensive market data, this report brings clear and concise insights to help investors in their decision-making process. As 2022 and 2023 were challenging years for the photovoltaic industry, the time for making the right decisions during 2024 and the next few years is limited. A fast-changing market environment requires relevant and accurate information. For your convenience, we offer the opportunity for orders with customized report content.
