PVinsights: Solar prices extend longest losing streak since 2016

The prices of both multi-crystalline and mono-crystalline modules continue to tumble this week. The slower demand in China has triggered fears over solar market turbulence, not just in China but across the Asia, with contagious spillovers to the global markets. The solar panel prices in China have experienced a great pressure as the competition among the suppliers become extremely intense in order to compete for limited solar projects especially after more domestic production capacities ramped up by Chinese 2nd tier suppliers. Meanwhile, in order to digest the excess stockpiles that left from slow China demand, the 2nd tier Chinese module suppliers also intend to strengthen its presences in the key solar markets, India and SEA where no punitive tariff are enforced. Hence, solar panel prices in these regions have seen fierce price competition with price quotes around $0.40/watt.

Obama makes new push on solar power

Timothy Cama for The Hill:  The Obama administration is making a new large-scale effort to encourage deployment and use of rooftop solar power on homes.

Numerous agencies announced new or strengthened coordinated efforts Tuesday aimed at increasing solar installations in houses owned by low- and moderate-income Americans, including a new goal for solar installations and a policy change to increase access to a key financing mechanism for solar power and energy efficiency.

“This is an approach that cuts across the government to try to take advantage of the fact that the cost of renewable technologies has come down dramatically during President Obama’s tenure, and we want to advantage of that a try to encourage more homeowners to actually benefit directly from that dynamic,” Brian Deese, a top adviser to Obama, told reporters.

The administration is dubbing the effort the “Clean Energy for All Americans Initiative.”  Cont'd...

Future ready: the road to renewable power quality

In a perfect world, all industries and applications would be fuelled by renewable energy and provide us with sustainable power. Unfortunately, there are many problems to resolve before industries can fully rely on a consistently sustainable source of power.

Screen cleaning powder can help maximise solar panel efficiency

An increased push from the United Nations (UN) to combat climate change will lead to a wider adoption of energy from renewable sources, including solar power, over the coming years. As a result, global water, energy and maintenance solutions provider NCH Europe is urging solar energy providers to consider the cleanliness of their solar panels to increase efficiency and reliability.
