Quercus Assets Selection S.C.A. SICAV - SIF, through its subsidiary Lux Renewable Holdings SA, has supported the construction of a 20MW photovoltaic plant in the town of Celano (in the Abruzzo region), which was unfortunately hit by an earthquake in 2009.

A new poll released by the San Diego Union-Tribune listed locally-based Sullivan Solar Power as the top solar power company in San Diego.

The Capital Gold Group has published its internal think tank study, "Sustainability, Solar, and Silver," for global publication to institutional and accredited investors for immediate release.

Canadian Solar Inc. (the "Company", or "Canadian Solar"), one of the world's largest solar power companies,announced that its wholly owned subsidiary Recurrent Energy has reached commercial operation of the 100 MWac/134 MWp Mustang solar power project in Kings County, California.

A new 1.5 MW roof top solar power plant was installed at the integrated international cargo complex of the Chennai International airport and it has become operational and started generating power.

In an attempt to leverage the growing focus on India’s solar energy sector, state-run Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd (BSNL) plans to lease out its telecom factory at Bhilai in Chhattisgarh for manufacturing solar equipment.

APM Terminals Inland Services, South Asia has signed a contract with Mahindra Susten to provide exclusive Third Party Logistics (3PL) services in India for an upcoming 260 mw solar power project in Andhra Pradesh. 

Solar Energy Corporation of India Limited (SECI) is to introduce a payment security mechanism to support its Viability Gap Funding (VGF) for solar projects.

Tamil Nadu has now reached Number One position in solar power capacity addition. India’s total installed solar capacity has grown by over 80 per cent in the last 12 months to reach 8,100 MW. 

We have estimated the capacity creation of solar power based on the total capacity addition needs of the power sector and the share of the incremental capacity that solar could take as  follows:

Photovoltaic (PV) module technologies are characterized according to Standard Test Conditions (STC) as per IEC 60904-31. 

PV panels create unique waste-management challenges along with the increasing waste streams forecast. Apart from in the EU, end-of-life treatment requirements across the world for PV panels are set by waste regulations applying generically to any waste rather than dedicated to PV. 

Mercom Capital Group, llc, a global clean energy communications and consulting firm, forecasts another year of solar growth with installations expected to reach 64.7 GW in 2016 up from 57.8 GW forecast for 2015.

PV panel waste streams will increase alongside worldwide PV deployment. This publication is the first to quantify potential PV panel waste streams in the period until 2050. 

Liquidity risk may be a key concern to renewable energy investors when, for instance, utilities are affected by liquidity constraints or when the timing of cash receipts and payments is mismatched. 

Risk mitigation is especially important in renewable energy projects because of their high upfront capital requirement. Financial de-risking instruments accompanied by sound policy can reduce the financing costs of renewable energy investment and help attract capital at scale (Waissbein et al., 2013).

Directing energy sector investment towards renewables means dissolving market barriers currently obstructing the development and financing of renewable energy projects. The technical aspects of renewable energy, lack of familiarity, limited knowledge and skills among project proponents and local financial institutions all reinforce a lack of track record and reliable investment data, especially in emerging markets. Investors find it hard to identify attractive projects, and project developers find it hard to identify investors. This often becomes a key barrier to renewable energy investment. 

Faced with far-reaching changes, policy makers will need to reconsider a wide array of existing policies.

Mr. Kiran Patil, Managing Director, PLG Clean Energy Projects Private Limited

Do you feel the Indian solar market is overheating and needs to cool down to avoid problems in the long run?

My view is, the Solar market in India is evolving, it is not overheating.

With a target to have an operational solar power capacity of 100 GW by March 2022, the Indian government hasannual capacity addition targets for the next few years. By early March this year more than 5.7 GW of solar power capacity was operational in India.The Ministry of New & Renewable Energy (MNRE) plans to add 12 GW,15 GW and 16 GW solar power capacity in the financial years 2016-17, 2017-18 and 2018-19, respectively.
