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, 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. The combiners have gone through Highly Accelerated Lifetime Testing (HALT) guaranteeing all components are carefully vetted for highest reliability. 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.
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.

BRYAN CLARK for TheNextWeb: Part of its ‘Road to Tomorrow Initiative,’ Missouri’s Department of Transportation is teaming with Solar Roadways, an Idaho-based startup (seriously, what’s going on in Idaho?) to cover an undetermined length of Historic Route 66 with road-ready solar panels. Blair also told The Star that the bulk of its efforts will be crowdfunded. After receiving a $100,000 grant from the Federal Highway Administration to build a prototype, and a pair of $750,000 research grants from the US Department of Transportation, the group has raised more than $2 million of its own to complete the project through acrowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo. Solar Roadways’ panels are tempered safety glass that are as strong as they are efficient. In addition to harnessing energy from the sun, they also come with LED lighting to effectively replace road lines and signage. While obviously more expensive to install upfront, the panels do have the benefit of being completely modular, which would allow for quick and cheap repairs by just swapping out the broken panels rather than re-paving entire stretches of road.

The price correction of multi-crystalline wafer has enlarged this week as the demand drops noticeably. Yet capacity expansion from the 2nd and 3rd tier multi-crystalline wafer makers comes on stream recently, making the price of multi-crystalline wafer further depressed. Moreover, multi-crystalline wafer prices are also forced to comply with bigger correction in response to the deteriorating demand and prices of multi-crystalline cells. Similarly, the demand of mono-crystalline wafer also sees signs of faltering, due to the expanded price gap with multi-crystalline wafer and the weakening downstream demand.
