The record low price was offered for the 600 MW Al Shuaiba PV IP project, which competed in the second round of the country’s procurement scheme for renewable energy.
The U.K.-based analyst has raised its outlook for new PV additions in 2021 by around 23 GW. Due to strong demand, leading module manufacturers are sold out for the first half of the year.
JinkoSolar VP Dany Qian said that high demand cannot stop prices from rising for at least the next six months or longer, until sufficient capacity ramps up.
A new report from the U.S.-based analyst predicts that new PV additions for 2021 may range from 163 to 221 GW next year and from 179 to 240 GW in 2023. According to BloombergNEF, the current supply bottlenecks for glass and polysilicon will unlikely halt the global PV market.
In cold climates, floating ice and frost heave need to be considered in designing the anchorage system. Kane Wang of Sungrow Floating offers more tips.
Australian researchers said that oOff-river” pumped-hydro is not only able to overcome the typical topographical issues of conventional pumped-hydro but also is cheaper.
The tool allows users to collect data on single municipalities from a dataset of 3,500 places. Alberta, Manitoba and Saskatchewan have the country’s highest solar radiation levels.
Researchers in China are proposing a new technique to recover polyethylene glycol terephthalate (PET) and ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) in solar panels at the end of their lifecycle. The two materials represent around 15% of the total material in a wasted solar cell, with a share of 10% for EVA and 5% for PET, respectively.
