PVinsights:A warning on oversupply

Both multi- and mono-crystalline module prices plummet obviously this week. Ongoing supply growth and falling demand continues to weigh on the solar panel prices, as the fierce price competition has extended globally. In China, the price correction of multi-crystalline module has declined obviously in July, as Chinese module makers leverage strategic pricing in attempts to win the limited solar projects. Due to the entry limitation by trade barriers in EU and the US, the 2nd tier Chinese producers suffer the most with accumulated stockpiles and have to enhance fierce price competition in China, India, Japan, and the emerging countries, where no punitive tariff enforced, to dump their excessive inventories. Meanwhile, in the US, solar panel prices are also being pressured with some quotes lower than $0.50/watt as 1st tier Chinese module makers seek to increase the shipments via its overseas capacities to compensate the worse-than-anticipated sales in China.

Panasonic Activates Online Simulator for Dutch Homeowners to Visualize Benefits of Installing Solar

Panasonic, a world-renowned leader in consumer electronics across a wide array of industries, today launched a new, online solar simulation platform for Dutch homeowners. Building upon Panasonic's UK launch earlier in 2016, the free and interactive "Simulate your Solar System" platform now enables homeowners residing in the Netherlands to input their address, roof characteristicsand yearly electricity consumption to provide a personalised estimate of their home's solar potential and showing them how close they can get to a 100% reduction of their current yearly electricity costs using Panasonic HIT®'s high-performance solar modules.

SolarWindow Reveals First-Ever 'Invisible System' for Transporting Electricity on its Electricity-Generating Window

The company's SolarWindow™ generates electricity when its transparent organic coatings are applied in thin layers on to glass surfaces. The SolarWindow™ Intra-Connection System, announced today, moves electricity within these electricity-generating coatings to the company's previously developed 'invisible wires'. In turn, these 'invisible wires' transport electricity across the surface to the edge of the glass, where it's connected to building electrical systems.

Belgian scientists make novel water-from-urine machine

Reuters:  A team of scientists at a Belgian university say they have created a machine that turns urine into drinkable water and fertilizer using solar energy, a technique which could be applied in rural areas and developing countries.

While there are other options for treating waste water, the system applied at the University of Ghent uses a special membrane, is said to be energy-efficient and to be applicable in areas off the electricity grid.

"We're able to recover fertilizer and drinking water from urine using just a simple process and solar energy," said University of Ghent researcher Sebastiaan Derese.

The urine is collected in a big tank, heated in a solar-powered boiler before passing through the membrane where the water is recovered and nutrients such as potassium, nitrogen and phosphorus are separated.  Cont'd...

Flex-Core - Flexible Split-Core Current Transformer

Flex-Core - Flexible Split-Core Current Transformer

The FCL model split-core current transformers have multiple benefits, including a flexible twisting motion for ease of application. Installing a split-core CT means there is no need to disconnect your primary conductor(s) which reduces downtime. Many customizations are available including extended secondary lead wire lengths, various outputs including 5A, 1A, 1VAC, and 0.333VAC, and custom rubber inserts to help center the CT and maintain accuracy. The FCL models can be used in applications up to 720VAC and have an operating frequency from 50Hz to 400Hz.
