Off-grid solar for Himalayan food chains

Decentralized solar devices such as PV-powered portable irrigation pumps are technically viable solutions to meet the energy needs of food value chains across the high-altitude Hindu Kush Himalaya region, according to a new report by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA).

FoxEss unveils compact single-phase inverters for residential PV

FoxEss has released new inverters with nominal power ranging from 0.7 kW to 3.3 kW, a maximum efficiency rating of 97.4%, and a maximum European efficiency of 96.8%. They measure 290 mm x 220 mm x 116 mm and weigh in at 5.4 kg.


Indonesia may add 66 GW of solar by 2030, says IRENA

The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) says that solar could become the backbone of Indonesia’s energy system by 2030. However, the nation’s own expectations are still far off from IRENA’s scenarios.


Equinor acquires Danish solar developer

Equinor is set to fully acquire developer BeGreen, which has a project pipeline of more than 6 GW in Denmark, Sweden and Poland.


Air-source heat pump for harsh, cold climates

Carrier will soon begin field tests for a prototype air-source heat pump for cold climates. It is designed to provide high-efficiency heating performance in harsh climates with temperatures equal or below negative 29 degrees Celsius, while being grid-interactive. The US-based heating tech specialist expects to commercialize the solution by 2024.


ADB, EDC launch 2 GW solar program in Cambodia

The Asian Development Bank (ADB) and Électricité du Cambodge (EDC) have signed an agreement to develop 2 GW of solar in the Southeast Asian country. EDC will conduct a nationwide study to identify potential solar and storage projects for implementation up to 2030.

Construction begins on El Salvador’s first state-owned solar park

El Salvador’s Lempa River Hydroelectric Executive Commission (CEL) has started building a 17 MW solar park. It is the first to be owned, designed, planned and executed by the national authorities. It is scheduled to start operations in December 2023.

SPIC, Ocean Sun switch on offshore floating solar-wind pilot

State Power Investment Corp. (SPIC) has started operating the world’s first offshore floating solar plant integrated with an offshore wind turbine, at a pilot site off the coast of China’s Shandong province. It features floating PV tech from Norway’s Ocean Sun.

Solinteg unveils hybrid inverter series for C&I applications

Uninterrupted PV generation without storage

An Israeli scientist has proposed a way to achieve uninterrupted PV power on the moon without using energy storage. The proposal involves the installation of PV panels around a 360-degree latitudinal ring close to one of the moon’s poles. There would be no inter-array shading, and static vertical PV arrays and arrays mounted on single-axis vertical trackers could be viable mounting structures.
