Trends in solar modules – Interview with RenewSys CEO

Avinash Hiranandani, global chief executive officer and managing director of RenewSys India, speaks to pv magazine about solar module technology trends and the company’s manufacturing focus.

India added 438 MW of solar capacity in Q3 2020

The new solar capacity added during the three months ending September includes 283 MW from large-scale installations and 155 MW rooftop.

India deployed 400 MW of rooftop PV in Q2

India added 399 MW of new rooftop solar capacity in the second quarter (July-Sept) of fiscal 2020-21. By comparison, just 188 MW was installed in the corresponding period last year.

Solar microgrid powers Indian health center

The Indian Institute of Science (IISc) Bangalore has installed a 5.2 kW solar system linked to 150 Ah of lead-acid battery storage in a project supported by the Sunrise program led by Swansea University, in Wales.

The best renewables combination for off-grid power supply

Scientists in India have proposed a model to design an off-grid, hybrid energy system based on a combination of solar, wind, biomass, biogas and fuel cell, linked to storage, for electrifying a cluster of three village hamlets in the Indian state of Karnataka. The model is implemented through the HOMER software and a genetic algorithm.


India announces $3bn package to attract solar module and advanced battery manufacturers

An ambitious, $19.5 billion, five-year expansion of a previous domestic industry spending program includes money to attract investment into the sustainable energy and transport technologies.


World could add more than 900 GW of solar by 2025 if politicians grasp the nettle – IEA

With the International Energy Agency publishing its latest five-year clean energy forecast today, pv magazine takes a look at the solar content of the 162-page document.


Standalone PV with pumped storage could deliver LCOE of $0.053/kWh

A new Indian study shows that standalone PV systems combined with pumped storage could be a solution to energy poverty in developing nations. This easily deployable, chemical-free approach might be best in countries that lack battery-recycling rules, the researchers said.


DC voltage regulation technique for grid-connected solar-plus-storage

Researchers in India have developed a new method to operate a solar-plus-storage system in a stable manner under varying operating conditions. They claim that their novel technique enables the regulation of the DC link voltage and is able to compensate reactive power while supplying active power to a local load in grid-connected operation.


Evolving risks could hurt PV investment flows in India

The Indian solar sector has remained buoyant amid the pandemic, with 15.3 GW of solar capacity approved in the first half itself. However, concerns are rising among India-focused investors.
