ReCreate unveils details of US solar cell, module factory

The new venture is expected to bring 2 GW of solar module manufacturing capacity to the US market within 18 to 24 months.

Mecosun offers concrete solar carport

Mecosun says it has introduced a new solar carport in three formats, using low-carbon concrete and an embedded module mounting solution.


Leasing models could help German solar installers cope with falling panel prices

Martin Schachinger, the founder of, explains how German solar installers are navigating the current slide in PV module prices – now as low as €0.08($0.09)/kW. He says that solar leasing could offer new opportunities, particularly in the nation’s commercial and industrial (C&I) sector.

Yield modeling platform for large-scale solar

Australian software developer PV Lighthouse has secured almost AUD 1.97 million ($1.32 million) to drive development of its SunSolve Yield advanced simulation engine, which is designed to improve yield forecasting for utility-scale solar projects.

Germany concludes rooftop PV tender with average price of €0.0894/kWh

The German authorities have reviewed 363 MW of bids to select 2559 MW of projects in the nation’s latest rooftop PV tender. The final prices ranged from €0.0795 ($0.0864)/kWh to €0.1019/kWh.

EneCoat to accelerate perovskite PV production

EneCoat Technologies, a Japanese solar perovskite developer, has raised JPY 5.5 billion ($35 million) from new and existing investors to finance new collaborations based on its low-temperature production process.

Ohmium opens second electrolyzer gigafactory in India

Ohmium has started operating a second electrolyzer gigafactory in India. The 2 GW facility near Bengaluru is expandable to 4 GW. It will produce polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM) electrolyzers to meet rising demand for green hydrogen.

k-Nearest Neighbors algorithm for PV power forecasting

Scientists in Iraq used a k-Nearest Neighbors algorithm to evaluate the operational status of PV modules under various conditions, including partial shading, open circuit, and short circuit scenarios. They found that the overall performance of the model in predicting power output was “notably accurate.”

New design for antimony trisulfide solar cells promises 30% higher efficiency

An international research team has proposed a series of optimization techniques for antimony trisulfide (Sb2S3) solar cells that may reportedly increase the efficiency of these PV devices to over 11%. The resulting new cell design is said to significantly improve band alignment control and parameter optimization.

Nevada partly covers peak demand with 690 MW solar-plus-storage project

The US state of Nevada will meet 10% of its peak demand with the now-operational 690 MW Gemini solar-plus-storage project outside of Las Vegas.
