The analysts expect the few months before the Renewable Obligation Certificates scheme ends will drive a bumper quarter for solar installations in the U.K.
The first three months of next year will see record-breaking levels of utility-scale solar PV installations in the U.K. as developers rush to complete projects before April 1, 2015, according to IHS.
From that date, ground-mount solar PV systems larger than 5 MW will no longer be eligible to receive subsidy under the Renewable Obligation Certificates (ROC) scheme, prompting a rush that will see as much as 1.3 GW of utility-scale solar added.
Solar Farm, England.
Ground-mounted solar farms larger than 5 MW have propelled the U.K. solar industry to new heights this year, with more expected in Q1 2015.
