Photovoltaic Agriculture: a Perfect Combination of modern agriculture and photovoltaic power generation

There is no denying that at present solar energy is the safest, most reliable and cleanest natural energy in the world. Photovotaic agriculture, a new agriculture industry, can convert solar energy photovoltaic into electricity and apply to agricultural activities, such as planting, breeding, irrigation and plant diseases. Generally speaking, photovoltaic agriculture plays a significant role in wide applications of modern agriculture and has high ecological and economic benefits.

China's Countryside to Embrace an Explosion of Distributed PV Generation

On May 25th, Zhang Gaoli, a member of Central Politburo Standing Committee of the Communist Party and Vice Premier of the State Council attends and speaks at the TV conference concerning a new wave of upgrading and transformation of rural power grid.

PVinsights:The depreciation of RMB enhances solar slump

After a roaring start to the year, the excitement over polysilicon has dissipated this week due to the weakened sentiment and the RMB depreciation. In China, although Chinese polysilicon manufactures still intend to increase the price quote, the attempts are limited in success as buyers are reluctant to accept any further price hike. As the result, polysilicon price in China this week stays clam in RMB term, but convert into a slight drop in dollar term due to the depreciation of RMB. As for the polysilicon outside of China, the price tumbles more obviously than China, with spot price falling closer to $15/kg this week.

Offshore Wind Arrives in U.S. Waters

By Daniel Cusick, ClimateWire for Scientific American:  The first offshore wind farm in the United States is set to begin delivering power to Rhode Island’s electricity grid by year’s end, a milestone that could help reshape energy markets from New England to South Florida, experts say. But for U.S. offshore wind power to achieve its full potential, as much as 4 gigawatts of capacity, it will need a major influx of capital and know-how, much of which will come from Europe, where the technology has a 25-year performance record and now accounts for 11 GW of generation capacity on the continent. Representatives of top U.S. and European wind firms—including executives of Deepwater Wind, the firm building the 30-megawatt Block Island Wind Farm off Rhode Island—told industry peers gathered on the Gulf Coast last week that the industry should act now to establish the technical, logistical and policy frameworks to build more offshore wind farms in the United States.   Cont'd...

Nanomaterials could double efficiency of solar cells by converting waste heat into usable energy

Devin Coldewey for TechCrunch:  An experimental solar cell created by MIT researchers could massively increase the amount of power generated by a given area of panels, while simultaneously reducing the amount of waste heat. Even better, it sounds super cool when scientists talk about it: “with our own unoptimized geometry, we in fact could break the Shockley-Queisser limit.” The Shockley-Queisser limit, which is definitely not made up, is the theoretical maximum efficiency of a solar cell, and it’s somewhere around 32 percent for the most common silicon-based ones. You can get around this by various tricks like stacking cells, but the better option, according to David Bierman, a doctoral student on the team (and who is quoted above), will be thermophotovoltaics — whereby sunlight is turned into heat and then re-emitted as light better suited for the cell to absorb.  Cont'd...
