Renewable power generation costs in 2019: Chapter (Solar PV module cost trends)

62 RENEWABLE POWER GENER ATION COSTS 2019 RECENT MARKET TRENDS By the end of 2019, over 580 GW of solar PV systems had been installed, worldwide. This represents a 14-fold growth for the technology since 2010. About 98 GW of newly installed systems was commissioned just during 2019. These new capacity additions were the highest among all renewable energy technologies for the year. Growth in 2019 was driven by continued new capacity additions in Asia, with the region contributing about ...
