According to reports, because of the declining support rate, the economy of the British solar deployment subsidy project is at its most critical stage, and its deployment capacity has been reduced by half. Around the future uncertainties of solar modules and unit minimum import price limits (MIP) and the macro problems of the UK, the industry has been in trouble.


Nevertheless, building regulations, system cost efficiency, new business models, and increased energy storage mean that the industry is ready for a new deployment phase. In terms of energy storage, the deployment speed is expected to be slower than people think.


"The estimated launch date has been postponed for several years." Ron Shen, vice president of international sales of GoodWe, a manufacturer of inverters, said, "but we are working with different partners on different housing projects. I really look forward to the harvest season of energy storage projects. At present, many projects have completed financial settlement, legal problems have been resolved, and now is the time to launch energy storage projects. "


Inverter Manufacturer Growatt is adjusting its product line to meet UK household electricity demand, but its demand is lower than that of the United States and other countries.


Lisa Zhang, Deputy Marketing Director of Growatt, said, "we have branches and service capabilities. Now there are some inspiring building codes, so we hope that the market will have more demand for small solar energy and energy storage systems. We are looking at some low-power energy storage products to meet customers' needs.


Sungrow is the world's Three Largest Inverter Manufacturer in the UK market. Sungrow uses the UK as a platform to liaise with international investors and provide services to its existing customers until deployment begins.


"I'm not so worried about the British market. Our market analysis is very long. "  William Zhou, vice president of Sungrow, said: "we are not in a hurry to pursue success. Britain's economic base is very solid, all of which means rising electricity demand. Under the appropriate conditions, even if the solar power is low, the UK can achieve the grid parity, and the cost of solar energy is still falling, and the market will grow very quickly. "
