The impact of the Inflation Reduction Act on the global solar market

  • 2024-02-05 23:39:18
  • Junior Isles

This falls far short of government ambitions, and pales in comparison to the 1000 GW that China could produce if its factories were running at full capacity. The figures reflect how serious the oversupply situation is for the Chinese market, while the US faces mounting pressure to translate planned projects into reality.
