A report by BloombergNEF and Schneider Electric makes the case for governments to unlock huge rooftop solar potential, citing California’s solar mandate as a shining example.
A renewables investment report from BloombergNEF noted record growth for solar projects as wind power investment eased. A 1.8% yoy rate of growth was cause for concern, however.
Daqo expects another 180-220,000 metric tons of poly production lines to appear next year, enough to supply 240-250 GW of solar modules and 200-210 GW of generation capacity.
The nation produced 57% more solar cells in the first half of this year than in the same period a year earlier.
The Photovoltaics Report published by Fraunhofer ISE said that Europe had just 1.25 GW of solar wafer production capacity at the end of 2020.
Imports from South Korea and the U.S. dwindled, year-on-year, ensuring Germany’s Wacker and the Malysian unit of Korean company OCI will supply the bulk of the world’s non-Chinese solar polysilicon this year.

The study cites the cost competitiveness of renewables-powered green hydrogen by 2030 as a big game changer for the energy transition.
The Norwegian hydropower business wants to pay $152 milllion for the London-based clean energy developer which claims to have brought to life 1.2 GWp of project capacity in seven countries since 2013.
