Solar stocks such as Renasola (NYSE:SOL) jumped significantly higher on Tuesday after Maxim Group Analyst Aaron Chew forecast an upbeat 2012 for the alternative energy. The analyst said that he expects 30 gigawatts of demand during 2012 and that China will surpass German as the world’s largest market with 5.5 gigawatts of solar ion this year. The move comes after Deutsche Bank analyst Vishal last week stated that unexpected strong demand from Germany, Italy and the U.S. could benefit the solar sector in the fourth quarter. The analyst stated “inventory levels across the supply chain are now at record low levels and we believe record December month shipments (in Germany) is likely to create a sense of rush among installers”.
