Why Drones Are 'Game-Changing' for Renewable Energy

Julia Pyper for GreenTechMedia:  Amazon caused quite the stir in 2013 when it announced plans to launch a drone delivery service. People were both thrilled and horrified at the thought of flying robots delivering toilet paper to our doorsteps. Some drone enthusiasts hoped to see Amazon launch a drone-based solar installation service -- but alas, that business doesn't exist. Yet. Drones are already disrupting the solar sector, however. This week at Intersolar North America, DroneDeploy, a cloud software platform provider for commercial drones, and DJI, a leading maker of drones and camera technology, announced a partnership that is expected to dramatically increase the efficiency of solar panel installation and inspection using drone-based thermal imagery capture and analytics. The companies claim that customers can reduce residential solar system measurement times by up to 50 percent and reduce commercial measurement times from days to minutes. In addition, on-board thermal imagery can help to ensure that equipment is in the optimal position for maximum production.   Cont'd...

PVinsights: Solar prices fall on worries about oversupply

Solar price fell this week amid sign of a global oversupply and evidence that producers have now adapted to lower prices. Due to the shrinking demand in China, the 2nd tier Chinese module manufacturers, who heavily depend on the domestic demand and rapidly expand production capacities, have suffered most severely with increasing stockpiles. Due to the entry limitation by trade barriers in EU and the US, the 2nd tier producers enhance fierce price competition in China, India, and emerging countries to get rid of the stockpiles. Although 1st tier Chinese module makers intend to stabilize the price quotes, the attempt is limited in success due to the pressurized prices offered by the 2nd tier suppliers.
