A look at the rise in prices in the PV sector
A significant rise in silicon prices occurred in February and is affecting the various stages of the photovoltaic sector. Installers are worried: will they get the panels they need? Will their budget not be affected? The forecasts are not very good because the world demand for the construction of power stations has never been so strong, and reinforced by the 2020 construction sites which had to be postponed to 2021. The current year looked like a magnificent one. Will it be? Will we manage to supply silicon in sufficient quantities? The subject deserves analysis. Indeed, what if the Chinese took advantage of their quasi-monopoly on the production of panels to impose their world domination?
