Weekend read: From Mumbai to Bondi

Economic cooperation between India and Australia may open doors for investment in clean energy technology but challenges still abound in a competitive global market. Vibhuti Garg and Shantanu Srivastava, of the Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis, discuss the role that public funding and resource pooling could play in supporting manufacturing ambitions.


System design for PV-driven hybrid EV charging stations

Researchers in India have simulated a 4 kW solar power-based hybrid electric vehicle charging station using a three-stage charging strategy and found that the station is capable of charging 10–12 EVs with 48 V 30 Ah lithium-ion batteries.

5B eyes Australian expansion as work on Indian production plant begins

Modular solar pioneer 5B has commenced construction of a potential giga-scale production facility in India that is to improve its access to international markets, but the Sydney-headquartered company remains committed to its manufacturing operations in Australia.

Premier Energies unveils 590 W TOPCon bifacial PV modules

Indian manufacturer Premier Energies says its n-type TOPCon bifacial glass-backsheet modules are available in power outputs of 555 W to 590 W, with an efficiency rating of up to 22.83%.

Bluebird Solar unveils M10 half-cut PV modules

Bluebird Solar has developed half-cut mono passivated emitter and rear contact (PERC) solar modules based on M10-sized cells. The modules are available with outputs ranging from 400 W to 550 W.

Solar productivity negatively impacted by emissions and aerosols, study finds

A study by engineers at UNSW, published in the Renewable Energy journal, shows that aerosols and greenhouse gas emissions reduce the productivity of photovoltaic installations and that this differs according to the global region.  


Novel algorithm estimates global maximum power point in partially shaded PV systems

Developed by scientists in India, the global maximum power point (GMPP) technique is based on the voltage and current of strings in a PV array. The research group tested it in computer simulation, as well as through an experimental setup.

India’s green hydrogen will be cheapest in the world, says power minister

Already 5.8 million tonnes of green hydrogen manufacturing capacity is in different stages of installation in India, said power minister R.K. Singh at a summit in New Delhi recently.

Tesla proposes battery storage factory in India

Tesla has submitted a proposal to the Indian government to set up a Powerwall battery storage factory in India.

Indian scientists making high-purity polysilicon ingots from recyled PV cells

Indian scientists have produced high-purity polysilicon ingots from recycled solar cells using “spark plasma sintering” (SPS), and claim they may achieve a purity level comparable to commercially available products.
