Interesting news.

Two small bits from me: one, multi-junction cells are feverishly developed in Germany too. Two, this years' expectation of new German photovoltaic (PV) installations has been raised by the industry association from 360 to 450 MW (previous years' world record was 363 MW), as the supply problems seem to be topping out. (Germany may overtake Japan in total installations too in two years, and all-European production may catch up with Japan in a little longer.)

Finally, for 2004 data, you can view truckloads of statistics at the IEA-PVPS site.
