EF-Final-September 2004-117373 4 The Energy Foundation commissioned this study to evaluate the market potential for PV in 2010 under a cost breakthrough scenario. • The Energy Foundation believes that PV will play an important role in America’s energy future and that the U.S. economic, energy security and environmental benefits are large. – The future for the PV industry is bright under either business-as-usual or technology breakthrough scenarios. • This work was undertaken to develop an estimate of how large the market for PV systems would be under certain assumptions about future installed-cost reductions. – One objective was to increase investor confidence in the PV industry, and to encourage state and federal policy makers to continue and expand existing forms of policy and financial support for PV industry expansion. • Navigant Consulting, Inc. (NCI) assessed the market potential for PV in 2010, if an aggressive investment-led breakthrough in installed system price of $2/Wp 1 is achieved. – We emphasize that these cost reductions can only be achieved with strong, continued government support in the near term that creates a positive investment climate for private investors. • NCI conducted this study in collaboration with Clean Power Research. Introduction » Background 1) All data is in $/Wpdc unless otherwise stated.
