A guide to keeping solar panels clean and functional

One of the outcomes of 2015's COP21 summit was the push for a unified uptake of renewable energy to ensure a sustainable future for the planet. Solar power is one of the most reliable renewable sources, with a number of government schemes and initiatives in place across Europe to encourage more businesses to install panels. However, in order to ensure longevity of the panels themselves they must be kept clean and functional. Mark Burnett, VP of the Lubricants and Fuel Additives Innovation Platform at global water, energy and maintenance solutions provider NCH Europe, explains how effective solar panel cleaning is key to truly sustainable power.

Geothermal Power Market Showing Strong Growth, New Report Finds

Geothermal power showing sustained strong growth through 2016 according to a new report by the US Geothermal Energy Association (GEA). Projects now under development when completed would increase capacity outside the U.S. by 25% according to GEA.

SUNCNIM has Raised €60 Million to Finance the World's First Fresnel Renewable Energy Thermodynamic Power Plant with Energy-Storage Capacity

"The plant will be the world's first in terms of technology. Designed to be eco-friendly and 100% recyclable, it will employ SUNCNIM technology using "Fresnel mirrors". The thermal energy produced will be stored and converted into electricity via a steam generation process", explains Roger Pujol, SUNCNIM's Chairman.

PVinsights: Solar prices except modules rebound as demand recover

Polysilicon prices rebound mildly in this week. All major Chinese polysilicon makers have successfully digested excess inventories in September, as the demand in the downstream has seen an obvious recovery, so as to follow the price uptrend of the downstream to raise their prices accordingly. On the other hand, non-Chinese polysilicon makers are still adjusting their price quotes lower as to trim the price gap with the Chinese makers. Hence, although Chinese polysilicon makers have obviously pushed prices higher, the average polysilicon prices this week grow mildly as offset by the descending overseas polysilicon prices.
