The strong demand still fueling solar wafer price improvement

Solar panel price declines marginally this week, mainly affected by solar panel price drop in the US. Without the further RMB depreciation against USD, solar panel price in China becomes stable in USD term. On the other hand, since some Chinese solar panel makers have been doing the price competition in efforts to gain more market share in the U.S. market, solar panel price in the U.S. is being pressured. Nevertheless, solar panel prices in Europe and Japan remain flat, as the demand stay constantly, as Chinese solar panel manufacturers in these regions are still not able to do the price competition under the solar cell cost rising. In India and the emerging countries, solar panel price stays stable, as the demand has maintained solid. As the result, overall solar panel price drops slightly as pressured by the strategic price competition in the U.S. market.

A solar-powered soccer pitch in Lagos also uses players' footfall to keep the lights on

Yomi Kazeem for Quartz:  Africa is already waking up to the possibilities that renewable energy provides, the African Union has pledged a $20 billion investment over the next decade. In East Africa, pay-as-you-go solar energy services arealready proving a mainstream success. In West Africa, things are still at an early experimental stage. One such experiment is a solar-powered football pitch which also uses kinetic energy generated by footballers playing.

Located at a teacher’s college in Lagos, Nigeria’s commercial center, the innovative soccer pitch was launched last year in a three-way collaboration between energy giant Shell; music star Akon, who has been championing solar energy on the continent; and Pavegen, a UK-based start-up which has a target of providing low-cost renewable energy solutions to Africa’s electricity problems.

Perhaps the most interesting technological feature of the solar-powered pitch—only the second ever launched across the world (the first was launched in Brazil in 2014)—is that it combines both kinetic and solar energy to produce electricity.  Cont'd...
