Summary / Abstract: Photovoltaics is the renewable energy with the largest growth rates and with beyond 600 GWp installed capacity worldwide. In the last years, the manufacturing of PV products outside of China including Europe has seen a severe downturn, many formerly big companies went insolvent or stopped production. Yet, Europe has a reasonable and growing market for PV installations. In this paper we show the establishment of a new global player outside of China, with respect to solar power plant installation and operation as well as of integrated crystalline solar module manufacturing from ingot to module.
