Finlay Colville joined Solar Media in June 2015 as head of the new Solar Intelligence activities. Until October 2014, he was vice president and head of solar at NPD Solarbuzz. Widely recognised as a leading authority on the solar PV industry, he has presented at almost every solar conference and event worldwide, and has authored hundreds of technical blogs and articles in the past few years. He holds a BSc in Physics and a PhD in nonlinear photonics.
GCL Systems Integration (hereafter ‘GCL’) has now been officially inducted into PV Tech’s exclusive Silicon Module Super League (SMSL) for 2016, with our team having previously alluded to aggressive capacity additions by the company in 2015.
Compared to the SMSL of 2015 – introduced by PV Tech to reflect key changes in PV module supply to the solar industry that have occurred in the past 12-18 months – GCL is effectively replacing Yingli Green Energy in the new elite subset of module suppliers to the industry this year.
For 2016, the entrance conditions are very clear: end-market shipment guidance (matched by our expectation/forecasts) of greater than 4GW this year.
This allows for a clear differentiation between the top module suppliers, and the chasing pack within which there are many guiding module shipments for 2016 in the 1-3GW band.
