Enel, through its subsidiary EGPC, currently operates a portfolio of plants in Chile that have a combined installed capacity of over 1 GW, of which 452 MW comes from wind power, 492 MW from PV solar

The world's leading independent certification company Bureau Veritas certified the Sunny Central 2200/2500-EV central inverters from SMA Solar Technology AG (SMA) in accordance with IEC standard 62109-1/2.

Renewvia Energy is conducting a feasibility study for the development of solar microgrids in key geographies in Kenya funded by a grant from the U.S. Trade and Development Agency(USTDA) as part of the Power Africa initiative.

Verengo, Inc., Southern California's leading residential solar panel installer, with over 20,000 systems installed,announced the proposed sale of substantially all of its assets to Crius Solar Fulfillment LLC, a subsidiary of Crius Energy Corporation and an affiliate of Crius Energy, LLC, a leading energy solutions company that provides electricity, natural gas and solar products to residential and commercial customers.

UBM India, India’s leading exhibitions organiser, successfully concluded its epic 10th edition of its flagship event, Renewable Energy India (REI) Expo held from 7th to 9th September 2016 at the India Expo Center & Mart, Greater Noida.

Geostellar, the nation’s original online solar energy platform, announced the launch of Solar Family, a program that recruits and trains independent Solar Professionals across the country to offer solar energy in their communities.

ENGIE has taken a 6.6% equity stake in Heliatek, the German industrial startup specialized in the manufacture of organic photovoltaic film in order to develop innovative decentralized energy production solutions.

The ongoing recovery of the European solar industry is in jeopardy because of a renewed wave of dumping exports by Chinese solar manufacturers.

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.
