Australia’s QUT discovers process to lower the cost of renewable hydrogen

Hydrogen holds promise for harnessing renewables to produce clean fuel for transport, growing a green energy-export industry, and overcoming seasonal intermittency challenges in the grid. On the road to viable hydrogen production every cost-efficiency measure counts.


Bifacial tracker pitch an important design factor in maximizing energy gain

The pitch of bifacial trackers is an important design factor in maximizing energy gain, says Soltec, which recently spoke during a pv magazine webinar on how its trackers can help to increase energy yields in large-scale bifacial PV installations. Read on to discover the answers to your questions from albedo to backtracking and everything in between.

Taiwan votes in favor of nuclear power

On Saturday, voters in Taiwan approved a referendum to stop the phase-out of nuclear power. Some fear the decision could slow down the development of the renewable energy industry on the island.


Don’t bury the problem! What a new standard means for cables in PV plants

A recent pv magazine webinar looked at how a new TÜV Rheinland standard will significantly alter the expectations of cables for direct burial at PV power plants. The high interest from participants meant there were more questions than time allowed. You can now find the responses to those that went unanswered, below.


Building bankable utility-scale solar+storage projects

With declining costs, and increasing amounts of solar+storage added to electrical grids across the globe, there is a growing need to understand how to build bankable projects. In a recent pv magazine webinar, we discussed just this.


US: Duke issues $1 billion in inaugural green bond offerings

In what it touts as one of the largest green bond transactions issued by a U.S. utility, Duke Energy Carolinas has issued bonds to further renewable energy development.

The weekend read: C&I challenges and innovations

In the jargon-heavy world of solar-speak, C&I handily condenses Commercial and Industrial into a snackable sub-section of the PV industry. But as sub-sections go, the C&I space has perhaps the greatest scope for flexibility, offering a raft of possibilities from ground-mount through to ingenious use of rooftop space. For module manufacturers, C&I also means something else: Challenges and Innovations, writes Ian Clover, Manager Corporate Communications, Hanwha Q Cells.

Bifacial PV and tracking: Q&A with JinkoSolar

On October 25, pv magazine will host a webinar, powered by JinkoSolar, in which the China-based manufacturer will present the case for using bifacial modules in large-scale solar plants, and discuss the influencing factors and their impact on bifacial PV tracking. In the following Q&A, JinkoSolar’s Andrea Viaro, Head of Technical Service Europe, JinkoSolar, and Colin Caufield, VP of Sales North America, Soltec provide a sneak peak into the technology and the advantages tracking can bring to bifacial technology.
