Annual Decline for Feed-in Tariff Should be Set at 4% in Order to Meet 2025 PV Installation Goals, Says EnergyTrend
According to the latest “Solar Powering Taiwan: Special Report” by EnergyTrend, a division of TrendForce, Taiwan’s PV installations made it past the 1GW mark for the first time in 2018, attracting man...  more
A team of Russian and Italian researchers have successfully developed a new type of Perovskite PV cell which utilizes a special nano material known as MXene to increase its performance. According to the researchers, the use of MXene can boost the efficiency of the PV cells for electric charge conversion by as much as 20%....  more
[Solar] Price Trend: As the Price Difference Between the Downstream Products Narrows, Robust Demand Will Emerge Before the Chinese New Year
The price trend of the overall market is still unclear this week, which is related to the average contract price of the upstream wafers by estimation. The upstream polysilicon and wafers will maintain its slow upward trajectory. ...  more
Thanks to their high efficiency, the global capacity of bifacial PV cells will triple in five years, topping 21 GW by 2024, for 17% of the world’s total PV-cell capacity, according to a report from Wood Mackenzie Power & Renewables. ...  more
The floating photovoltaics, according to the World Bank’s report, has come a very long way. The first floating solar energy was built in Japan in 2007. Soon countries like France, Italy, South Korea, Spain, and the U.S. all followed suit and tested with their own installations of smaller scales, which are mainly for research and demonstration....  more
[Solar] Swiss Firm Develops Energy Kites to Harvest Strong Winds at an Altitude of 500 Meters for Power Generation
A radical concept developed by a Swiss firm has upended the popular understanding that capturing wind energy for electricity generation requires tall wind turbines with huge blades erected on land or at sea. TwingTec, a spin-off from the Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology (Empa), has developed an airborne wind energy (AWE) system that works similar to flying a kite....  more
