The Photovoltaic Grid Parity Monitor analyses PV competitiveness with retail electricity prices for residential consumers and assesses local regulation for self-consumption of fourteen cities in seven countries (Brazil, Chile, Germany, Italy, Mexico, Spain, USA - California).
It is based on a rigorous and transparent methodology and has used real and updated data provided by local PV installers, local PV associations and other reliable players from the PV industry. It also includes a specific and in-depth analysis of retail electricity rates for each of the 14 cities taken into consideration.
Grid Parity represents a unique opportunity to develop a local and sustainable power generation technology in a cost-effective way. Policy makers have the opportunity to create the proper frameworks to adapt the energy system to the increasing importance of distributed generation, and in so doing ensure that it is properly monitored, channelled, and regulated.
This Monitor aims at giving benchmark elements and good practice models to foster the development of local sustainable energy.
Two issues per year will be published.
