Last week’s Renewable Energy India exhibition was a busy, bustling affair that highlighted the rude health and impressive energy of India’s solar sector. There are still many hurdles to overcome, however, if India is to develop its own domestic manufacturing industry.
The project will be developed by local renewable energy developer Soliwind. Around 30% of the energy needs of the airport will be covered by the power output of the PV system.
The Australian Energy Market Commission (AEMC) has introduced new regulations to stabilize the national grid as coal-fired plants are increasingly phased out and more solar and wind capacity is brought online.
Solar had the largest share in the final procurement round, with PV developers securing 382 of the 390 assigned feed-in tariff (FIT) contracts. Around 35% of the offered contracts are projects in indigenous communities.
The U.S. microinverter specialist has partnered with Indian solar module manufacturer Waaree to produce AC solar modules integrated with its microinverter technology.
Azure Roof Power, a subsidiary of Azure Power, will install solar panels on Indian government buildings across 10 states, after winning the right to build 50 MW of PV capacity in an auction held by Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI).
Australian homeowners and businesses installed 40.3 MW of small-scale solar capacity in August, up roughly 30.6% from the preceding month, according to figures from the nation’s Clean Energy Regulator.
