New solar-air dual-source heat pump design based on blower fans

Scientists have utilized two blower fans with two roll-bonded bare plates to create a heat pump that can operate in variety of ambient temperature and solar radiation conditions. The system has an average daily coefficient of performance of 3.24.


The Hydrogen Stream: German hydrogen collaboration strategy takes shape

Dutch company Gasunie will collaborate with two German transmission system operators (TSOs) and one Danish TSO to import green hydrogen from the Netherlands and Denmark. Meanwhile, French independent power producer (IPP) HDF Energy commits to co-develop project in Morocco, and two Japanese companies move ahead with hydrogen production plant in Malaysia.


Malaysia launches 30 MW floating solar tender

Kuala Lumpur-based utility Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) has started accepting applications for the development of a 30 MW (AC) floating PV plant at a reservoir in eastern Malaysia.

New research sheds light on off-grid solar costs in remote villages

An international research group has assessed the economic feasibility of exclusively powering remote villages in Pakistan with off-grid solar-plus-storage projects. They said that their proposed system configuration has a “justifiable” net present cost.

Machine learning for predictive maintenance in large-scale PV plants

Scientists have developed a machine-learning model – utilizing K-Means and long short-term memory techniques – that aims to overcome ‘fault detection and classification’ in the operation and maintenance of large-scale solar PV farms.


The Hydrogen Stream: Malaysia, Singapore mulling hydrogen pipeline

City Energy and Gentari have agreed to study the feasibility of building a hydrogen pipeline from Malaysia to Singapore.


Solar PPAs surging in Southeast Asia

Malakoff and MMC Group have agreed to deploy 500 MW of solar in Malaysia, while Citicore has agreed to supply 7.5 MW of solar to utility Clark Electric Distribution Corp. in the Philippines.


GoodWe finalizes 10.9 MW solar plant in Malaysia

Chinese solar inverter and battery producer GoodWe has completed the construction of the 10.95 MW Solar Citra Project in Malaysia, with Apricum senior advisor Moritz Sticher telling pv magazine that although the scale of the plant is ‘small’ every project in the Southeast Asian country counts.

Southeast Asia has technical potential to deploy over 1 TW of floating PV

A group of researchers from the US National Renewable Energy Laboratory assessed the potential for floating PV (FPV) plants at reservoirs and natural waterbodies in 10 Southeast Asian countries. It found that the overall FPV technical potential for the region ranges from 477 GW to 1,046 GW.


The Hydrogen Stream: Hydrogen buses less efficient than battery models

Italian researchers have compared the performance of hydrogen and electric buses in northern Italy, while DNV has released its guidelines to validate claims related to low-carbon renewable hydrogen and ammonia attributes.
