The project is the fourth floating solar array that Belectric develops and builds in Israel.

New hybrid inverters for rooftop PV from Germany

The BW-HY3600 and BW-HY4600 inverters can be integrated with existing on-grid or off-grid PV systems and a battery storage system of 48V. Both devices, according to German manufacturer Bosswerk, have AC and DC coupling and are particularly suitable for residential and commercial solar arrays.


RWE reportedly considering sale of Belectric

According to media reports, the separation from the photovoltaic project developer is said to be part of the energy company’s plans to streamline its renewables business.

High PV system prices, falling FITs make small solar unviable in Germany

The payback time in Germany for new solar systems below 10 kW is increasing. According to EUPD Research, it could be almost 22 years by as early as 2023.


German researchers want to reduce manufacturing costs for electrolysers by more than 25%

A number of Fraunhofer institutes in Germany want to make green hydrogen more cost-competitive and are working to identify the best and most economical processes for the production of electrolyzers. They intend to build a digital library of future-proof electrolyser manufacturing processes with which the investment costs and even the return on investment can be determined in advance depending on the planned production volume.


Smart sticker for smart solar modules

The sticker is based on a blockchain technology developed by German start-up Authentic Network. Meyer Burger uses the application for the photovoltaic modules it produces in its new factory that opened in Freiberg at the end of May.
