Need a report that reflects how COVID-19 has impacted this market and its growth?
The Trinidad and Tobago solar energy market is expected to grow at a CAGR of more than 0.8% during the forecast period of 2020 – 2025. Factors such as rising environmental concerns and high cost of grid expansion are expected to be major drivers driving the market. Also, advancement in technology leading to solar panel manufacturing cost reduction and increase in efficiency has been a major factor for the growth of the Trinidad and Tobago solar energy market. However, the lack of interest by international companies to develop utility size solar power projects in the country has hampered the growth of the market.
The gradual shift from energy generation from conventional sources such as coal and natural gas to clean energy is expected to help grow the Trinidad and Tobago solar energy market.
The country is actively working towards developing its solar energy resource by floating various tenders. This is expected to create a huge opportunity for solar market players in the country.
Trinidad and Tobago is expected to witness significant growth in the forecast period, over rising environmental concerns, economic benefits of solar power generation, and higher dependency on solar power for electricity during power cuts.

Key Market Trends
Increasing Demand for Clean Electricity to Drive the Market
Increasing demand for clean and stable energy is one of the primary drivers for the solar power generation market in the country. The country has been one of the most active countries in relation to policies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and drive towards cleaner energy.
Rooftop solar offers the benefits of modern electricity services to households that had no access to electricity, reducing electricity costs on islands and in other remote locations that are dependent on oil-fired generation, as well as enabling residents and small businesses to generate their own electricity.
Usage of local energy sources or distributed generation reduces energy losses due to line loss i.e. the power lost in transmission and distribution of electricity over long distances.
Overall, the electricity generation has been rising in the country at a stable rate. The majority of electricity is produced from natural gas, but the country has set ambitious targets for electricity generation from renewable energy resources like solar energy.
Therefore, the aforementioned factors are expected to drive the market in forecast period.

Lack of International Investments to Restraint the Market
There has been a significant lack of investments by foreign companies in the country in the renewable sector. This has hampered the development of utility size solar projects in the country. Due to the lack of investments, the solar capacity of the country has remained stagnant between 2-3 MW since 2010.
In February 2020, the government floated a tender for a 130MW solar power in a bid to attract foreign investors. The tender received a total of 11 proposals.
In June 2019, the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) gave USD 3 million to the country to develop its solar power projects.
Therefore, the lack of foreign investments by large international companies is expected to be the major restraint of the solar power market in the country.
