An ltalian senior industry official said, with the impact of PV
subsidy reducing, Italy, the world's second largest PV market, 2012
new PV capacity will decline to over 1.5GW-2.5GW, decreased
significantly compared to 9.3GW in 2011.
Italian green energy incentive policy management agency GSE
operations director GerardoMontanino said " new PV capacity this year
