DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/5jj38w/end_customer) has announced the addition of the “End Customer Survey on Photovoltaics 2015” report to their offering.
Despite decreasing module prices, the number of installations in the Photovoltaics-segment below 10 kWp has declined since 2011. Reasons for this are unclear. In spite of decreasing feed-in tariffs, a Photovoltaics plant nowadays may generate a return of 3% to 5%. Merely 15% to 30% of the produced electricity needs to be self-consumed. This is feasible also without an energy storage system.
Also the newly introduced EEG charge on self-consumed electricity does not apply to Photovoltaics plants below 10 kWp. lt should therefore not pose an obstacle to end customers with small rooftop-installations. Nevertheless, the amount of installations significantly dropped in 2014.
From an economic point of view, Photovoltaics is still a profitable investment – this makes it hard to understand the current development. In addition, Photovoltaics plants offer further advantages like electricity self-sufficiency and environmental protection. Therefore, the aim of the study is to find reasons for the lack of investment and to gain a better understanding of the end customer.
