Solar Trends to Watch for 2017

2016 marked a record year for solar energy. As of December 2016, solar power is cheaper than wind and cheaper than fossil fuels. What does that mean for the future of the solar industry, and more specific to our interest, what does that mean for solar generators? The bottom line: now is the time to invest in solar energy including solar generators.

Giant Wind Turbines Now At Eight Megawatts, And Getting Larger

Peter Kelly-Detwiler for Forbes:  News arrived in late December from the waters off the United Kingdom that the first of MHI Vestas (a joint venture between Vests and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries) 8.0 megawatt (MW) turbines is now delivering commercial power to Dong Energy’s Burbo Bank Extension. The entire 258 MW project – to be completed in Q1 of 2017 - will need only 32 such turbines. This is a significant milestone, as wind turbines have become increasingly more powerful over a relatively short timeframe. This 8 MW machine is currently the largest commercial turbine in the world. Less than ten years ago, at the original Burbo Bank project, a 3.6 MW turbine was inaugurated, the largest in the industry at the time.   Cont'd.. .

Swiss Firm to Use Solar Power for Space Tourism

Financial Tribune:  SolarStratos, a Swiss startup, has unveiled an airplane that uses solar power to lift people to the edge of space and return them gently to earth. The company revealed its “solar plane”, a 28 foot-long aircraft that will be the first manned aircraft entirely powered by solar energy to rise above the stratosphere and bring passengers close to the stars. The solar power airplane has a wingspan of 81.3 feet and weighs 992 pounds. It will take two hours to ascend to the edge of space some 15 miles above the earth. SolarStratos will stay there for 15 minutes before beginning a three-hour descent back to earth.   Cont'd...

PVinsights: Solar Panel Continue To Record New Low

Solar panels lead losses in supply chain this week as serious competition added to the mounting price tension in the regional solar markets. Amid the expanded capacity in SEA, top tier Asian solar panel makers can gain access to the US market without high tariff rates and are offering strategic price reductions in order to compete with the western rivals and tier-1 Chinese manufacturers for more market shares. Recently, Hanwha Q-cell has been the dominant player that fuels price competition over major solar markets in EU, Japan and most noticeably in the US. Therefore, as Chinese module makers are also forced to join the price war, solar panel prices in these regions are further driven down by such competition. Moreover, solar panel prices in EU and US are further pressured due to thinning trading ahead of the year-end holiday period.
