PVinsights: Solar prices slump on China demand freeze

The increased stockpiles and volatility in the solar panel market as a result of oversupply and geopolitical turmoil respectively, have accelerated the price slump globally. In particular, the slower demand in China has triggered fears over solar price turbulence, not just in China but across the Asia, with potential spillovers for the global market. As sentiment turns extremely pessimistic for the demand outlook for 3Q16, the 2nd tier Chinese module suppliers aggressively lower price quotes near USD 0.42/watt in order to win more solar projects and to digest their increasing production output.

Jiangsu Academy of Macroeconomic Research's non-grid-connected wind power seawater desalination system wins BlueSky Award

The system is a result of the combination of wind power and a sea water desalination system. The choice of power supply mode can be flexible according to the capacity requirements of the seawater component, with options being solely wind power driven, a wind power-battery hybrid, a wind and grid-connected hybrid or a multi energy cooperative mode.

Here's How Brexit May End Most British Wind Power

Andrew Follett for the Daily Caller:  Officials from Britain’s wind industry are terrified their subsidies and tax incentives will end because of the U.K.’s decision to leave the European Union, according to a report by Reuters published Friday.

The report found that British wind companies, particularly ones that specialize in offshore wind power, are worried that Brexit places the government subsidies and easy access to financing at risk. The industry is deeply dependent on these subsidies to make projects more economically viable. Britain’s political uncertainty following the pending resignation of Prime Minister David Cameron means cuts to subsidies are likely. The Brexit could also make it much harder for wind companies to get loans from European banks, which could significantly slow the expansion of wind power.  Cont'd...

PVinsights: Multi-crystalline cell price slumps to record low

Multi-crystalline cell price falls consecutively this week, closing at historical low this week. As the demand freezes in China after the installation rush comes to the end, multi-crystalline solar cell makers have seen sharp order declines from Chinese PV module makers. For most of multi-crystalline cell markers who heavily rely on Chinese orders, they have to offer more competitive price in order to get rid of the excess stockpiles and compete to secure the orders. Moreover, the oversupply situation should worsen as most multi-crystalline cell makers still maintain at full productions and have no intention on curtailing production.

Yaskawa - Solectria Solar Adds Premium Features and Options to Advanced String Combiners

Yaskawa - Solectria Solar, the leading U.S. commercial PV inverter manufacturer, announced today that premium features and options have been added to its DISCOM and ARCCOM string combiner lines.

They offer utility-scale and large commercial PV designers the design flexibility needed in combiners. These string combiners have already been used in multiple utility-scale projects in the United States from 30-100MW.

BMW electric-car batteries to be used as home energy-storage devices

 Stephen Edelstein for GreenCarReports:  Tesla Motors was the first carmaker to branch out from selling electric cars to offering standalone battery packs for energy storage, but others have followed the company's lead.

Mercedes-Benz and Nissan have stated their intentions to enter the energy-storage market, and now BMW is jumping on the bandwagon as well.

At the Electric Vehicle Symposium & Exhibition 29—known as EVS29—held this week in Montreal, Canada, BMW unveiled an energy-storage system that uses battery packs from i3 electric cars.

Developed in concert with German firm Beck Automation, BMW's system is designed to use either new battery packs or "second-life" packs that have degraded too much for continued use in electric cars.

Battery packs that can no longer function in cars still have enough usable capacity for energy storage.

BMW has tested the concept over the past five years with various research projects, including a 2013 "micro-grid" project with the University of San Diego, and a 2014 collaboration in Germany with utility Vattenfall to use electric-car battery packs as buffer to help stabilize electricity grids.  Cont'd...
