The global Coronavirus outbreak may disrupt solar and energy storage sectors

Utility Dive says eight provinces in China have announced work stoppages because of the coronavirus outbreak—including Jiangsu province, which houses several solar manufacturing campuses.

This could cause shortages in product supply, which in turn, could start a chain reaction leading to an increase in solar pricing.

Also, analysts at Wood Mackenzie estimate that China’s battery storage production capacity could drop by 10% —​ or 26 GWh —​ of earlier forecasts for 2020.
