The result, confirmed by Germany’s Institute for Solar Energy Research Hamelin (ISFH), was achieved on a heterojunction solar cell based on an M6 wafer.
Pivot Power, part of EDF Renewables, has activated a 50 MW lithium-ion energy storage system in Kemsley, Kent supplied by the technology group, Wärtsilä, to support the integration of renewable energy into the UK’s National Grid.
China’s president has detailed plans to accelerate the planning and construction of large-scale wind and PV projects in desert areas, while Wuxi Shanghai announced new granular silicon and nano-silicon production capacity expansions.
Huawei Global Digital Power Summit 2021 is set to open on October 16 in Dubai with more than 300+ individuals attending the physical event, including executives from Dubai Electricity & Water Authority (DEWA), Group42, ACWA Power, du, Uptime Institute and Engie.
With the rise of large formats and n-type products beginning to make themselves known, these are exciting times for PV module manufacturing. Residential and commercial installations are also growing strongly in Europe and elsewhere, meaning there’s plenty to talk about with a module manufacturer that has long worked to establish itself in this space. In the following interview, Sascha Rossmann, vice president of global sales and Marc Ortmanns, Head of European marketing at Winaico provide a market update and closer look at the Taiwan-based module producer’s technology roadmap for the coming years.
German manufacturer Solarwatt today announced the opening of a new 300 MW module production facility, as well as new battery pack assembly lines, located on the outskirts of Dresden. The company invested around €35 million in the new lines and says it will begin delivering modules produced on the new equipment to customers as early as next week.
The manufacturer has raised the cost of all its products. Elsewhere, Xinyi is planning to deploy 5 GW of solar in Heilongjiang province and the China Electricity Council has reported the nation added 22 GW of solar in the first eight months of the year.
AntaiSolar has secured a 400 MW contract from Ningxia Jiayang Energy and Longi has raised the prices of all its wafers. Elsewhere, GCL New Energy has announced the sale of another 198 MW of project capacity.
Brazilian researchers have proposed a new mathematical model to change parameters for wind and solar resources and different levels of energy demand. The model was originally conceived for tropical regions, but it can actually be used in any location. The new methodology models a highly complex system featuring wind turbines and PV modules, as well as solar collectors, fuel lines, gas boilers, engine-generator sets, recovery boilers, absorption and compression chillers, and grid electricity.
On September 2, Trinasolar and the Fraunhofer ISE, the largest solar research institute in Europe, discussed the theme of the importance of product reliability and system value of a 600W+ module in achieving the lowest LCOE.
