A variety of factors led to the drop in polysilicon prices over the past year, but JinkoSolar notes that this decrease has slowed amid a short-term bump in supplies that still lags behind strong levels of wafer manufacturing capacity.
A new portable battery system from Mango Power features a capacity of 3.5 kWh, expandable to 28 kWh by stacking up eight systems. The new product can be used for different off-grid applications and as a residential backup solution.
With the current supply disruptions, and even keeping in mind the possibility of future challenges, BASF sees the importance of creating solutions that are more sustainable and addresses the need for energy efficiency and conservation.
Weather conditions have a huge influence on photovoltaic output. Even intermittent cloud cover can have a dramatic effect on incident solar energy, while other factors like air temperature, wind direction and speed, precipitation, humidity, and air pressure can all influence the efficiency of solar cells. Monitoring weather conditions accurately is crucial to understand variations in PV plant performance.
Among the innovations on display by Bluetti was the new solar-powered generator, the EP600+B500
Solar inverters remain a rapidly changing market, as powerful smart features continue to show their worth. Smart features and monitoring, along with battery storage compatibility, support for EV charging, heat pumps, and more, have all become increasingly necessary. And manufacturers that don’t respond quickly find themselves behind as new manufacturers elevate the market to cover growing needs, as homes, businesses, and vehicles electrify. New products bring fresh competition delivering complete overall solutions.
Following its exit from the solar business, LG Electronics is setting its sights on the Energy Storage Systems (ESS) sector. In addition to new products, it is also eyeing European market expansion. Sven Armbrecht, LG Electronics sales manager for Europe, and product manager Kyuwon Heo explain why solar installers can count on the group for heat pumps and integrated battery storage systems.
Taiwan-based solar PV monitoring service provider, thingnario, which uses AI to interpret large data sets, has reported that large solar parks can save as much as US$4,000 per megawatt in avoidable losses each year. The data comes from over 3,200 PV sites in Taiwan, studied over four years. The company believes higher-quality O&M monitoring can recover much of these costs through its proven strategies.
SolarApex has built what it calls the world’s largest rooftop PV array. A 140 MW project on a steelmill will help Turkish steelmaker Tosyali to shift its production to carbon-free “green steel.” Chief Marketing Officer Besime Özderici says the project could be an example for other energy-intensive industries.
Huawei Digital Power Technologies, a unit of Chinese multinational tech giant Huawei, recently signed a deal with Ghana-based solar developer Meinergy Technology to build a 1 GW solar plant coupled with 500 MWh of storage in Ghana over the next years. Under the terms of the deal, Huawei will supply solar-plus-storage systems for the project. Meinergy will be responsible for the development and construction of the facility. pv magazine recently spoke about the project with Kevin Wu, CEO of Meinergy, and Peter Acheampong, Deputy Director of Renewables for the Bui Power Authority, which owns the installation.
