  • Year: 2022
  • Organisation: TIPS and WWF South Africa
  • Author(s): Kate Rivett-Carnac
  • Countries and Regions: South Africa

The push for more electricity generation, particularly renewable energy generation, is likely to result in a significant increase in Solar PV projects across the country. This is turn will drive demand for the components and services. Given this context, and to add to the existing body of knowledge on the Solar PV manufacturing value chain, this report provides insights on:

  • Inverter manufacturing.
  • Mounting frame manufacturing.
  • Materials for Solar PV.
  • Imports and exports of Solar PV components.
