In late June, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection placed a Withhold Release Order (WRO) on products containing material from China’s largest metallurgical-grade silicon (mg-Si) manufacturer. We will discuss the ramifications of this decision on the U.S. solar industry and look at the critical points from the WRO to understand how solar goals and plans could be affected.
Europe’s booming solar markets have seen new grid code compliance standards being introduced recently, and we will discuss what that exactly means for plant operators.
While the quality of materials and components has thus far been a particular focus for manufacturers looking to offer premium products that stand the test of time, sustainability is increasingly on the agenda as end-of-life waste mounts, and customer and policy demands change. A growing number of manufacturers recognize the benefits of integrating sustainable design and production principles, like lower long-term costs, due to material reuse, for example, without compromising on other aspects.
Utility scale solar developers are increasingly factoring in very long project lifetimes in their financial models. Given this, expectations for the durability of the components have never been higher. The mounting structure is literally the component on which the weight of these expectations rest – whether fixed tilt or single-axis tracker. But is the material from which the mounting structure is constructed built to last 25, 30 or even more years in the field?
Join this pv magazine Webinar to learn about the new GE inverter offering to the Australian marketplace and to get an inside look at its technical capabilities from four industry experts.
With grid congestion and curtailment plaguing utility-scale PV development in many parts of Australia and the proposed 5-minute settlement by AEMO, live from October 2021, the case for coupling solar arrays to large-scale storage is becoming increasingly compelling. But how can solar + storage projects be effectively executed? And what are the keys for developing a successful business model?
The PV module technology landscape has an unavoidable feature in 2020: bigger modules with higher power output. But do bigger modules based on standard cell technologies really deliver? pv magazine Australia is partnering with Risen Energy Australia to examine what innovation looks like from the wafer, right through to the cell and a module – to investigate why 210mm wafers and the next-generation of heterojunction can cut through on cost and performance.
This pv magazine Webinar will investigate the prevalence of cracking and its impacts on plant performance, with data gathered from a wide range of crystalline silicon modules already installed and in operation, and examine how First Solar’s thin-film modules present a very different scenario when it comes to the risk of cracking. Join the discussion with our four experts!
If there ever was a time to learn how to effectively sell solar remotely – it’s now. The current situation will require new tools and techniques to win people’s solar hearts and minds. Join us for this timely pv magazine Webinar and be part of the conversation!
You are invited to join us online for the pv magazine Storage Highlights Ceremony!
The five Gigawatt Winners pitch their winning applications to the expert jury panel with a subsequent discussion by the independent leading analysts.
