To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change what levels of solar photovoltaic deployment he expects in (a) 2012-13, (b) 2013-14 and (c) 2014-15, broken down by (i) 0 to 4kw and (ii) 250kw to 5MW installations.

DECC's estimates of future deployment levels are set out in the impact assessment supporting the current consultation on solar PV cost control, available to view at:

www.decc.gov.uk/assets/decc/Consultations/fits-review/4320-feedin-tariffs-review-phase-2a-draft-impact-asses.pdf

The impact assessment does not break deployment down by installation size.

Estimates of future solar PV growth are extremely uncertain, and depend on a number of assumptions such as future PV costs, and the growth of the PV market. DECC is continuously reviewing its estimates in the light of the latest evidence, and will provide updated assessments for the final impact assessment published alongside the Government response to the current consultation.
