140 MW rooftop PV project to help carbon-free ‘green’ steel industry

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.


Optimizing O&M strategy key for 35 year solar assets

Engineering, procurement and construction companies must take special steps to ensure that PV plants operate reliably and efficiently. Japan’s ORIX Renewable Energy Management (OREM) is one such company. pv magazine recently caught up with Executive Vice President Kazuhisa Yurita to discuss the current challenges of O&M.


Sungrow introduces new residential solutions with EV charger to enable more powerful, flexible renewable energy systems

Maximizing consumption of self-generated power has never been more relevant. Due to high electricity prices, both homes and businesses are on the lookout for cutting-edge tech solutions to optimize the use of their rooftop PV’s output and gain greater energy independence. And some new products coming from Sungrow are designed to do exactly that, pushing the envelope on innovation and quality.


Five steps to ensure battery quality

Rigorous process control is of utmost importance in lithium-ion battery manufacturing – thermal runaway can lead to catastrophic failures, including fires. For Growatt, there is no room for compromise when it comes to quality in battery manufacturing. Growatt’s ARK was recognized as “outstanding” in TÜV Rheinland’s stringent safety and reliability tests. It also won the prestigious All Quality Matters Award. Here are five steps by which Growatt has achieved this success.

In the far reaches of northern Mexico

In two remote regions of the Mexican state of Chihuahua, PV-powered microgrids bring electricity to a university and an agricultural ranch, neither of which are well served by the regional grid. The microgrids make use of lithium-ion batteries supplied by Growatt, alongside modules from local manufacturer SolarEver. The projects serve as an example of how products like Growatt’s off-grid inverters and energy storage solutions can bring reliable solar power to regions with limited energy access.

Solar’s happy place

As high-temperature, energy-hungry processes meet rationed electricity and sky-high grid prices, China’s commercial and industrial sector is piling on the solar. Supplying the boom, Growatt’s MAX 125KTL3-X LV inverters ensure maximum value.


Hanersun expands globally with TOPCon solar modules and energy storage solutions

Hanersun president Yunzhou Liu talks about its past, present, and future, including investment in a new manufacturing facility, global expansion, and increasing sales. 

Module cleaning is just the beginning

Optimizing the performance of solar panels often comes down to ensuring their cleanliness. Levels and types of soiling, local weather conditions and the surroundings of your plant can lead to soiling problems and subsequent energy losses. Over the past year, ChemiTek has worked with O&M companies and PV asset managers to develop a range of products that will solve specific soiling challenges the solar industry is facing – and recent testing has yielded impressive results.


Unlocking C&I around the world

Growatt will unveil multiple new products in 2022. It has already announced the global availability of its new flagship line of 125 kW MAX inverters for C&I solar applications and higher-power PV modules. Its new offerings also include batteries, marking the dawn of a new era of commercial solar and storage growth.
