European Demand Boosts Top Lines for Chinese Solar Sector

The Bedford Report Provides Analyst Research on JA Solar & LDK Solar

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Apr 20, 2011) - Chinese solar stocks have been on the upswing over the last month as Japan's tragic nuclear crisis has led investors away from nuclear stocks and towards alternative energy plays such as solar. Reaction to the Fukushima nuclear power station crisis has been swift in Europe, while in the long term solar could become a significant factor in Japan's energy strategy. The Bedford Report examines investing opportunities in the Solar Industry and provides research reports on JA Solar Holdings Co. (NASDAQ: JASO) and LDK Solar Co. (NYSE: LDK).

Presently Germany consumes more than half the world's supply of solar modules. Following the Fukushima crisis, Germany is set to accelerate its shift from nuclear power to renewable energy and increased energy efficiency. The Fukushima crisis represented a tipping point for Germany's tolerance of nuclear's radiation risks, spurring thousands of German citizens to take to the streets protesting against nuclear energy.

Henning Wicht, senior director and principal analyst for photovoltaic systems at HIS iSuppli claims "Germany responded quickly by shutting down seven of its oldest reactors, potentially boosting the prospects for renewable energy in the country. Meanwhile, Italy indicated it might upgrade the role of solar within the country and accept higher volumes of sun-powered energy."

Italy's solar sector has surged since 2007, when generous production incentives were launched. On the downside the government is considering introducing an installed capacity cap for solar subsidies as part of its new renewable energy legislation, according to reports from Reuters. Italy's largest renewable energy association APER favours the German model, under which incentives are automatically reduced once installed capacity reaches a certain amount.
