Solar PV is becoming increasingly mainstream and over the next five years it is expected to be responsible for the largest annual capacity growth for renewables, far exceeding hydro and wind power.

It is predicted that by 2022, global renewable capacity growth will be as much as 1,100 Gigawatts. This growth is being driven by the US and India while China has already passed its 2020 target for Solar PV.

Producing the kind of ultra high purity Polycrystalline silicon suitable for solar panels is a surprisingly difficult process. However OCI is acknowledged as a leader in this field and is now one of the world’s Top 2 Polysilicon producers.
