This is the first edition of AMA Research’s report on non-domestic rooftop solar PV covering: warehousing, factories, retail, schools, higher education, leisure & hospitality etc. It provides an analysis of the annual and cumulative deployment of solar PV capacity across the rooftops of non-domestic buildings.
There is an estimate of the breakdown of the deployment of capacity by end-use sector and a forecast of which sectors have the greatest potential for future growth.
We also identify key stakeholders including commercial and industrial landlords and investors, retail groups and other major tenant organisations.
The PESTLE analysis offers a detailed review of key growth drivers and potential barriers to the rate of uptake.
On 27 February 2022, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change finalised the second part of the Sixth Assessment Report, Climate Change 2022: Impacts, Adaptation and Vulnerability, the Working Group II contribution to the Sixth Assessment Report.
In summary, it states the world has reached a point when humans and nature are being pushed beyond their abilities to adapt and that over 40% of the world’s population are ‘highly vulnerable’ to extreme weather events linked to climate change like floods and heatwaves.
Following COP26 and the UK’s government’s commitment to zero CO2 emissions by 2050 there is now a sense of urgency that fossil fuel dependent countries must cut their use right back while also investing much more heavily in renewable energy, with a major focus on wind and solar power.
In line with the government’s Sixth Carbon Budget, by 2035 greenhouse gas emissions need to be reduced by 78%. Between them, the CCC states wind and solar power will need to provide 75-90% of the UK’s electricity in 2035, with solar power alone delivering 60TWh a year.
Published in late 2021, the report Lighting the Way from Solar Energy UK says it is ‘catalysing our members to pave the way for 40GWp of solar energy capacity by 2030’. This means around 25GWp will need to be delivered over a 9-year period, equating to 2.7GWp a year.
