PVinsights: Solar Prices Send Bear Signal with Glut Concerns Lingering

Polysilicon price remain on a gradual slide this week. Although polysilicon price in China remain stable this week, price in overseas market has seen continuous decline. In China, since downstream wafer manufacturers currently remain high production utilization rates, solid demand fundamentals help to sustain the prices from falling in the short term. However, the price pressure continues to build up as more production capacities by major Chinese suppliers and new entrants will come on stream in near future. On the other hand, polysilicon in overseas market continue on the descent. With REC ramping up production and Wacker increase the volume in Pacific Asia, the increasing supplies outside of China are one of the reasons to deteriorate polysilicon prices. Moreover, as the downstream prices also see signs of weakening, it also impacts the polysilicon price trend. As the result, overall polysilicon prices drop continuously this week due to sliding prices in overseas market.

Global Annual Installed Capacity of Small and Medium Wind Turbines is Expected to Exceed 446 MW in 2026

Despite weakening policy drivers and competition from declining solar PV prices, the SMWT industry is still poised for growth. With a large amount of wind resource potential still available, plus several growing and emerging markets, the industry is anticipated to sustain itself into the foreseeable future. Click to tweet: According to a new report from @NavigantRSRCH, the global installed capacity of SMWTs is expected to grow from 176.4 MW in 2017 to 446.0 MW in 2026. 
"With historically leading markets such as the United States, the United Kingdom, and China seeing declining annual installed capacities of small and medium wind in recent years, other countries such as Japan, Denmark, and Italy are emerging as forces in the distributed wind market thanks to favorable government incentives," says Adam Wilson, research associate with Navigant Research. "We're also seeing a shift with medium-sized turbines as their niche slowly shrinks as drivers continue to favor small wind turbines for distributed wind and larger multi-megawatt turbines dominating utility-scale applications."  Full Press Release:

Solar & Wind - Featured Product

WS510 Secondary Standard

WS510 Secondary Standard

In the monitoring of large photovoltaic (Utility Scale), in assessing potential sites (Solar-assessment), or in up and coming electricity cost saving initiatives projects (Commercial & Industrial), the WS510 now provides the market a secondary standard pyranometer, ultrasonic wind speed, ultrasonic wind direction, temperature, pressure and humidity all in a single unit.. This sensor meets the high demands of the world meteorological organization (WMO) through the active valving at air temperature measurement and the inertia- and maintenance-free measurement of wind speed and wind direction on the ultrasonic principle. Equipped with a Kipp & Zonen pyranometer of the secondary standards, the WS510-UMB Compact weather sensor from Lufft unites the precision of a variety of meteorological individual sensors in a single all-in-one device, for the first time.
