Chinese slowdown and falling costs of solar power were two of the reasons global clean energy investment fell 18% in dollar terms last year
NEXTracker™, a Flex company, announced today it has partnered with CleanMax Solar, India's largest solar developer for corporate consumers, to supply 30 MW of its advanced NX Horizon single-axis trackers to a project in Tamil Nadu. The grid-connected project will deliver energy to a major IT consumer in Chennai, under a long-term contract with CleanMax Solar. Set up under the Group Captive Scheme, 100% of the electricity generated will be consumed in Tamil Nadu. The system is expected to be operational by the end of Q1 2017.
The overall price of solar module continues its downward trend with limited scope. As the market is still struggling with oversupply, limited trade volumes have been seen after the holiday season in Europe and America as companies are still planning the year ahead at the start of 2017, resulting in a minor price decline in EU and US. Meanwhile, the price in Japan, India, and China remained firm this week due to relatively decent demand in the region. Furthermore, after the sharp decline last quarter, the overall price adjustment has slowed down due to weak dollar and slowing price competition in the global market, but the pressure resulting from oversupply still exists. Thus, the overall solar module prices drop slightly this week.
