The latest analysis in the impact assessment which accompanied the Government Response to Phase 2A of the Comprehensive Review of the FITs scheme demonstrates that under the central scenario, 11.9 GW of PV would be installed under the FITs scheme by end of financial year 2020-21; the upper scenario is 21.100 GW by end of financial year 2020-21. Projections of future PV deployment are extremely uncertain, and will depend on future movements in factors such as solar module prices.
