Solar Power Market Size Will Reach USD 293.18 Billion By 2028 |

Pune, India, April 19, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The world solar power market size was USD 170.55 billion in 2020. According to a report by Fortune Business Insights, the global solar power market is expected to reach USD 293.18 billion by 2028, growing at a CAGR of 6.9% at during the forecast period. Rising demand for rooftop solar panels for commercial and residential applications to fuel the growth of the global solar energy market. The company is focused on increased use of clean energy, which is driving demand for commercial solar power. The blockchain industry uses renewable energy for mining, which increases the demand for solar energy globally.

The economic fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic is affecting many industries and, with major economies suffering an unprecedented contraction, it will take a long time for businesses to return to pre-pandemic growth levels. The growth of the solar energy market is also experiencing considerable setbacks due to supply chain disruptions and delayed projects, driven by social distancing measures and staggered shutdowns. As a result, the market showed a low growth rate in 2020 and reached a value of USD 184.03 billion in 2021.

Solar Energy Industry Growth Factors:

Increase research on solar energy storage to drive the market

Solar energy is at the forefront of renewable energy sources, due to its abundant availability and high reliability. With hopeful hearts, scientists are intensely engaged in researching the potential of solar energy to provide sustainable energy to the world and curb the worsening effects of climate change and global warming. For example, in March 2021, researchers at Duke University, USA discovered how the molecular structure of halogenated perovskites can help provide the most favorable properties for broader solar energy applications.

Another study conducted by scientists from Linköping University in March 2021 found that solar cell efficiency can be improved by 33% to 40% by exploiting a phenomenon known as singlet fission. The team also solved the problem of energy loss during this process, a discovery that can greatly increase the potential of solar cell technology. This research plays a key role in deepening the presence of solar energy in the production and storage of energy.

Incorporation of AI in solar energy management to illuminate market insights

Artificial intelligence (AI) has proliferated across a wide range of industries and is transforming the solar industry as well. Governments and private companies are increasingly using the power of AI to optimize solar power plant operations and scale up solar projects. For example, the US Department of Energy (DOE) has deployed IBM’s artificial intelligence software for its SunShot initiative. The software combines cloud information, sensor networks and local weather stations derived from sky cameras and satellite images. In Australia, New Energy Solar announced in March 2019 that it would use advanced predictive technologies at its Manildra solar power plant, in partnership with Canberra-based solar forecasting provider Solcast. The introduction of AI in solar management therefore creates huge opportunities for players in the solar industry.

Analysis of the solar market by region:
