Solar PV grid parity predicted by 2013 at earliest and 2019 at latest in Europe.

A new EPIA report forecasts grid parity in 5 main countries. For rooftop systems of 100 kW Dynamic Grid Parity comes in 2013 in Italy, and by 2019 across all five (2017 in the UK). 3kW or smaller installations come later by a year or two. Ground-mounted PV arrays of 2.5MW and larger will reach generation-value competitiveness (GVC: the point at which building a utility-scale PV array makes as much sense for an investor as building a combined-cycle gas plant) in Italy in 2014, followed by France and Spain (2015), Germany (2017) and the UK (2019).
