Abstract: Over the last two decades, grid-connected solar photovoltaic systems have increased from a niche market to one of the leading power generation capacity additions annually. In 2018, the newly installed solar PV power of over 100 GW was more than all the world-wide cumulative installed PV capacity until the mid of 2012. Total installed photovoltaic electricity generation capacity exceeded 500 GW at the end of 2018. Despite a 20% decrease in annual installations, China was again the largest market with over 44 GW of annual installations. Decentralised photovoltaic electricity generation systems combined with local battery storage have substantially increased as well.
