Impact of Russia-Ukraine War

The Russia-Ukraine war has the potential to significantly impact various industries, including the solar energy sector and projects such as solar carports. One immediate concern is the disruption of the global supply chain, as both Russia and Ukraine play crucial roles in supplying raw materials, components, and technologies essential for solar panels and related infrastructure. The interruptions in the supply chain could lead to delays or increased costs for solar carport projects. Moreover, the geopolitical uncertainty resulting from the conflict dampens investor confidence and financing for such projects, as investors adopt a more cautious approach amidst heightened instability. In addition, energy markets could experience volatility, affecting the price of fossil fuels and electricity, which in turn could influence the economic viability of solar energy projects, including carports.

Rise in Government Incentives

Solar carports and other renewable energy initiatives are supported and encouraged by numerous municipal and state governments. Tax credits, subsidies, discounts, and advantageous net metering laws are a few examples of these incentives that make PV carport installations financially appealing. For instance, a bill requiring solar panels in parking lots with at least 80 spaces was approved by the French Senate in 2020.

In July 2023, car parks with 80 to 400 spaces must meet this requirement within five years. Properties with more than 400 parking spaces must achieve this goal within three years from July 2023.

These government incentives play a crucial role in driving the adoption of solar carports and other renewable energy initiatives. Tax credits, subsidies, discounts, and favorable net metering laws are among the various incentives offered to make photovoltaic (PV) carport installations.

The solar carport market is segmented into Design Type, Vehicle Arrangement and Application.

Solar Carport Market by Design Type

By design type, the market is categorized into V-Shape, T-Shape, L-Shape and Y-Shape.

Competing Energy Sources are hindering the Solar Carport Market Demand

A cheap and easily accessible energy source is natural gas. It is a strong choice for companies trying to save energy expenses when combined with developments in natural gas technologies, such as Combined Heat and Power (CHP) systems. In areas with abundant and reliable wind resources, wind farms and turbines provide a sizable amount of electricity.

When it comes to renewable energy sources, solar carports and wind power are competitors for businesses looking to be sustainable. Particularly in places where electricity rates are low, a lot of businesses still rely on electricity supplied by the grid. For several businesses, grid electricity is a more practical and hassle-free choice. Some companies investigate bioenergy and biomass options, such as producing energy from organic materials.

Solar Carport Market by Vehicle Arrangement

By vehicle arrangement, it is bifurcated into one row and double row.

Renewable energy sources are substituted with these forms of energy. Businesses might see hydropower as a clean and dependable energy source in areas with access to water resources. There are benefits to hydropower in terms of energy stability and dependability. Cogeneration, another name for CHP systems, is the simultaneous production of appropriate heat and electricity. They are regarded as energy-efficient and are a desirable choice for companies looking to maximise their energy usage. Geothermal energy is an appropriate renewable energy source in areas with geothermal resources as it provides reliable power generation, independent of weather fluctuations.

Solar Carport Market by Application

On the basis of application, the market is classified into commercial, residential, and industrial.

Shift in Solar Energy to Cut Carbon Emissions

Rising number of industries, including parking lots, residential complexes, and commercial and industrial buildings, are implementing solar carports due to the need to maximise space utilisation and reduce carbon emissions through the use of renewable energy. As a result, solar-style carports have been incorporated into EV charging stations, allowing EV owners to comfortably charge their cars while utilizing solar electricity.

For instance, in April 2023, iSun, Inc., one of the leading solar energy and clean mobility infrastructure companies, received a 2.2 MW solar carport contract to one of the nation’s largest financial institutions in Ohio for $7.7 million.
The project highlighted Sun’s ability to originate projects and create value for new customers, including through turnkey engineering services with growing EV Infrastructure. It was scheduled to begin by the second quarter of 2023. Moreover, in September 2020, Tata Power entered into a power purchase agreement (PPA) with its entity Tata Motors to commission & install a solar carport at Tata Motor’s Chikali plant in Pune.

In addition, in April 2023, Six Flags installed a 12.37 MW solar-powered carport and battery storage system in Los Angeles in April 2023 in collaboration with Solar Optimum & DSD Renewables.
