Wood Mackenzie says in a new report that China could install 230 GW of PV and wind capacity and export more than 200 GW of solar panels in 2023. Unlike Europe and United States, the country is avoiding the high curtailment of PV and wind.
Australia’s Clean Energy Regulator has selected a new body to take over the role of accrediting solar installers and designers, a position previously held by the Clean Energy Council. The new organisation will be formally announced in February, 2024, with solar installers given three months to transition to the new scheme at no extra fee.
A Spanish-Algerian research group has tested how “cool roofs” could help increase power yield in rooftop bifacial PV systems. Cool roofs are based on coating materials with high reflectance properties.
Electric vehicle and battery energy storage manufacturing giant Tesla is aiming to “disrupt the traditional incumbents” in Australia’s electricity retail sector with its application for an electricity retailer licence having been accepted by the market regulator.
Egyptian researchers has developed a multi-string PV system with a converter control strategy, achieving 99.81% efficiency with a direct duty cycle for maximum power point tracking (MPPT).
Scientists from South Korea have designed new photovoltaic modules with both rectangular and triangular shapes and solar cells connected in parallel, which they said have higher partial-shading tolerance compared with cells connected in strings. The panels are reportedly less sensitive to partial-shading geometries than shingled modules.
A Dutch-German research team has tested how a series of framed messages may be used to boost PV system sales, addressing both self-interest and environmental concerns, and has found that all the proposed messages are effective at promoting the purchase of solar panel installations.
Indonesia has officially launched the largest floating solar farm in southeast Asia and already the proponents have agreed to more than triple the capacity of the 145 MW project as the nation looks to increase its renewable energy sources and switch away from coal.
A ‘Feasibility First Value Selling’ can transform solar sales processes, James Allston of Orkestra argues.
Fronius, Australia’s most popular inverter brand, has lost almost 35% of its marketshare this year due to major stock shortages. After a year of supply issues, Fronius Australia’s managing director told pv magazine that its backlog, including for the GEN24 Primo 10, should be cleared by the end of November.
