PricewaterhouseCoopers released an analysis of the solar PV markets across Europe and emphasizing the UK market. PwC claims that there will be substantial increase in the installation of Solar PV in the next ten years, but there are a number of obstacles to overcome. In order to captivate this potential growth, individual firms and government must focus on the five big barriers: consumer awareness, upfront funding, and consistency of policy, access to capital and UK skills shortage. The above graph explains the rise of PV if all the five barriers are overcome. (Better generation Ltd, 2009) There are three types of PV commonly used in UK- Môn crystalline, Polycrystalline and Amorphous with and efficiency of 12-15%, 10-13% and 3-6%.
