Tag: solar energy in Asia

Asia’s population will reach about 4.6 billion by the end of 2019, which is more than half of the world’s populace. However, most Asian members are developing countries that solar energy development has received lower priority compared to developed communities like the United States and Europe. Nevertheless, Asia has been regarded as one of the fast-growing markets in the upcoming decades as there are more and more resources and capital being put into it, and Asia has abundant solar radiation and lots of flatlands. Solar energy in Asia will continue to thrive since new market forces in Southeast Asia and the ASEAN are being raised.
