Solar PV South Africa: World's Attractive Emerging Market

South Africa is currently ranked in the top percentile of emerging Solar PV market attractiveness rankings. The rankings are compiled from evaluations focused on the macroeconomic environment, potential market size, project lucrativeness and pipeline maturity. The high rankings of Solar PV South Africa came after the country’s public announcement of its target of building 8.4 GW of PV by 2030, joint with the triumph of its large-scale tendering process in attracting investment to fulfil this goal. Furthermore, the trade industry in the country has cultured well-established policies that are friendly to commercial banks for funding. The introduction of Power Plant Hybrid solutions (Diesel & Solar PV) into this emerging economy has made Solar PV South Africa one of the most attractive emerging market globally.

Thailand is ranked second to Solar PV South Africa. Research has shown that Thailand's ranking as one of the most attractive emerging Solar PV market reflects and shows the extent to which investors are eager for the country’s adder scheme. This is a scheme under which the government pays feed-in premiums pay-outs to solar power producers as incentives for power production. With this program recently being discontinued and replaced with a tariff feed-in scheme, Thailand has consequently been in danger of becoming a less attractive PV market for most investors.
