2012 solar PV year in review: A complex picture of a changing market

2013-01-24 |

The difficulties that the global solar industry experienced in 2012 were both clear and expected. Continuing excess solar photovoltaic (PV) manufacturing capacity spurred a collapse in prices across the PV value chain, creating consistently negative margins and negative profitability for upstream PV manufacturers. This led to a large number of bankruptcies, insolvencies and acquisitions, but also trade wars between the United States and China, the EU and China, and between India and everyone else.

Solar Interview on desert challenges: O&M in China’s solar market

2014-12-16 |

There is growing discussion around the effects of harsh climatic conditions on the O&M of PV plants. It’s not just an issue for China, is it? No, definitely not. With cumulative global PV capacities reaching ~180 GW this year, the O&M market for solar PV installations worldwide is already substantial. Out of this total, more and more PV installations are operating under demanding climatic conditions, such as in deserts or in highly polluted areas, and this will increase in the future, especially in emerging markets. These challenging environments require module manufacturers and power generators to adapt their module design and O&M strategies accordingly, which is vital for plant profitability. Read more...

Advanced Inverters – Recovering Costs and Compensating Benefits

2013-10-18 |

Advanced inverters will increasingly be required for distributed solar generators across the country. Georgia Power's latest interconnection agreement, for example, requires that small solar generators use advanced inverters to provision reactive power. Similarly, a group of Western utilities recently endorsed advanced inverters as an effective and affordable tool to regulate voltage and is working to make them mandatory for all new solar facilities within their service territories. While there is clear recognition that advanced inverters offer grid benefits, how to fairly allocate their costs and compensate their benefits is a topic of hot debate. Read more...
