Markets & Trends

Battery storage – a key resource in the MEA energy transition

Solar and other renewable energy sources are rapidly growing their share in the energy mix all over the world. And as this grows, so too does the importance of energy storage in balancing the intermittent output of solar and wind and ensuring electricity is available wherever its needed. In this pv magazine Webinar, we’ll focus in on the role of storage across the Middle East and Africa regions, where we not only see batteries being deployed to support regional grids, but to provide backup power to commercial operations, form microgrids, and firm up the supply to off grid and rural electrification projects.

Cutting out the cracks: Advantages of thermal stress cutting

Since their introduction midway through the last decade, half cut cells have grown to become an industry standard technology adopted by virtually every module manufacturer. And as we see larger formats and other innovations that require cells to be cut into three or more pieces, the trend is only set to grow further; and this places the processes used to cut the cells at the heart of PV manufacturing. In this pv magazine Webinar we’ll take a closer look at the innovative thermal laser separation developed by 3D-Micromac, comparing this to the traditional ‘scribe and break’ processes still widely used in PV manufacturing, and taking a look at Voltec Solar’s production line in France where the TLS tool is in operation.

Supply chain transparency on the rise – Where is the solar industry?

Why are supply chain transparency and sustainability important? Are there tangible business advantages? Our upcoming pv magazine Webinar seeks to address these questions, by hearing from experts in both solar and the electronics industry, to understand what solar companies can do to ensure supply chain best practice.

Waterproofed: new cable testing, standard for Floating PV

Join this upcoming pv magazine Webinar to learn about the outlook for floating PV (FPV) and challenges facing investors; the TÜV 2Pfg 2750 standard, and the first certified water-resistant PV DC cable according to the new standard.

Solución de inversor de gran potencia para red trifásica de bajo voltaje en América Latina

El nuevo inversor de 60kW para red trifásica de 208-240 VCA del fabricante chino Solis será analizado en un Webinar de pv magazine, en el cual se analizará cómo este tipo de aparato puede adaptarse a las características de muchos mercados fotovoltaicos latinoamericanos, con un enfoque particular en México, Colombia y Argentina.

Can you design sustainable PV backsheets without compromising performance?

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.

Why bigger is better when bifacial modules meet single-axis tracking in the APAC region

Australia’s large-scale solar segment has adopted the combination of bifacial modules with single-axis tracking – delivering on LCOE and power output during the times of the day when wholesale prices are high. With large-format modules now coming on the market, will the wider Asia-Pacific region follow suit?

Policy, innovation, markets: will residential batteries hit the big time in 2021?

The last decade saw residential storage take off, achieving vast industry growth and customer adoption in a relatively short time. While the 2010s became the decade of residential solar, can energy storage follow the same blueprint for success in 2021?

A good pairing – Inverter and storage compatibility in a changing European residential market

Battery storage is much talked about in the solar industry. But when is a battery an economically sensible addition to a solar rooftop? Together with this webinar’s initiative partner Solis, we will discuss residential storage opportunities across various European markets. There will be insights and lessons learned from mature residential solar markets such as the UK, but we will also look ahead and see what some newer markets such as Belgium, Poland, and Sweden hold in terms of residential storage deployment opportunities.

Packed with Power: High-powered solutions for agile utility-scale solar projects

Utility-scale PV in Europe is set for rapid growth in 2021. But with opportunities come challenges, and new large scale solar markets are emerging in new regions and countries. This geographical expansion can mean complications when it comes to grid connection requirements, supply chain management, and system design and construction. Join this special pv magazine Webinar to hear from market analysts, technologists, and project financiers, to learn how the new generation of solar project components can unlock 2021’s market opportunities.
