Impact of floating photovoltaics on thermal characteristics of lakes

A new study details how floating photovoltaics impact wind flow and irradiance on lakes, with the effect of influencing water temperature at different depths. However, the report’s authors say more research is needed on how to design systems for maximum benefit to the water bodies themselves.

Solar buildouts mapped to determine impact on biodiversity in US largest estuary

A group of researchers and data scientists from the Chesapeake Conservatory studied the construction of solar energy facilities in states surrounding the Chesapeake Bay Watershed and found that solar developments on already cultivated land did not adversely impact biodiversity.


Bahrain’s port to host $10 million solar project

The A.P. Moller-Maersk subsidiary says that by installing 20,000 solar photovoltaic panels, it will make Bahrain’s Khalifa Bin Salman Port the region’s first seaport to be fully powered by renewable energy.


Solarge opens first large-scale solar production line

Solarge, a Dutch panel manufacturer, says that its new factory will make two types of lightweight mono-PERC panels with low carbon footprints. It says it will design them to be reused at the end of their 25-year lifespans.


Inorganic perovskite PV cell hits 17.04% via fullerene-derivative interlayer

Researchers have achieved an efficiency boost of 15.44% to 17.04% in all-inorganic perovskite solar cells by incorporating a conductive fullerene-derivative interlayer between the perovskite and electron transport layers. They claim that this enhancement also improves thermal stability.


UK solar systems to be 50% cheaper by 2035, say UK researchers

University of Surrey researchers say that by 2035, the levelized cost of energy (LCOE) for small projects and utility-scale PV systems could decrease to GBP 149 ($187)/MWh and GBP 51/MWh, respectively.


Solarspace shifts TOPcon solar cell factory to full capacity

The second-phase launch of Solarspace’s $1.47 billion manufacturing facility brings its total global production capacity of n-type solar cells to 35 GW.


Guyana’s solar program set to free up state funds for other uses

The Guyana Utility Scale Solar Photovoltaic (GUYSOL) Programme will help Guyana to achieve the mission set out in its Low Carbon Development Strategy 2030, by reducing the amount that the government needs to spend on electricity subsidies.


Gravitricity to deploy prototype underground hydrogen storage system

Gravitricity, an Edinburgh-based storage specialist, aims to develop the first full-scale demonstration of its underground hydrogen storage solution by working with structural engineering contractor VSL Systems UK.


AMEA Power secures financing for 100 MW solar project in Tunisia

The African Development Bank (AfDB) Group has granted $37 million in loans to support the development of a 100 MW solar plant in Kairouan, Tunisia. The Tunisian authorities tendered the project in 2019.
