New bio-inspired based algorithm to improve PV output under partial shading

The novel algorithm is based on the behavior of marine animal tunicates and reportedly provides remarkable results in terms of power errors. It was tested in four PV system configurations with five different shade patterns.

The Hydrogen Stream: Gulf nations moving forward with tech cooperation

Acwa Power and Eni have signed a hydrogen development deal, while AFC Energy has signed an agreement with Tamgo to sell hydrogen generators.

ACWA Power reaches financial close for 200 MW solar project in Egypt

With an overall investment cost of US$182 million, the Kom Ombo plant is expected to be commercially operational in January 2024.


Saudi researchers apply distributionally robust optimization to wind, solar project siting

Saudi scientists created a new deep learning technique based on distributionally robust optimization (DRO) to identify the most suitable locations for utility scale wind and solar power projects. They applied the model to Saudi Arabia and found it provides ‘more realistic’ results than deterministic or robust models.


Saudi Arabia to power green hydrogen project with 2.2 GW of solar

Sungrow has agreed to supply inverter technology for a 2.2 GW solar plant under development in Oxagon, Saudi Arabia. The PV installation, which will be the largest in the Middle East upon completion, will provide power for Neom Green Hydrogen Co.’s (NGHC) $8.7 billion green hydrogen project.


TotalEnergies-led group nails financing for 119 MW of solar in Saudi Arabia

A consortium led by TotalEnergies has secured financing for a 119 MW project that it won in a 2021-22 tender held by the Saudi authorities. It will be located in Wadi Al Dawasir.

Temperature coefficient of short circuit current may not be proper metric for perovskite-silicon tandem solar cells

Researchers in Saudi Arabia have conducted a series of tests to investigate the temperature coefficient of the short circuit current in perovskite-silicon tandem solar cells and have found that it may not be considered a proper metric to assess these devices’ performance and behavior.


Perovskite solar cell based on indium sulfide ETL promises 20.15% efficiency

An international team has sought to use indium sulfide as an electron transport material in a perovskite solar cell. The result is a device with lower defect density and improved performance.
