GB can meet carbon budgets without new nuclear plants, but urgent policy direction is needed

Findings from Cornwall Insight's Benchmark Power Curve ¬- a comprehensive market and asset-level power price modelling service - shows that meeting GB's fourth and fifth carbon budgets without commissioning new nuclear capacity is a real possibility. Not only this, but the forecasts predict that meeting these targets can be achieved at a lower cost compared to developing a new fleet of reactors.

CNY Depreciation Keeps Weakening Solar Prices

Polysilicon prices keep declining amid the continuous CNY depreciation against USD this week. As major buyers remain cautious of placing the purchasing orders, polysilicon prices in China hold steady in CNY term, but are translated into a drop in the US dollar term. Meanwhile, since some Chinese polysilicon suppliers recently released their 1Q19 financial results with total cost and cash cost lower than USD 7.5/Kg and USD6.3/Kg, respectively, this suggests that the current polysilicon prices are still too high to reach the long term price bottom. Since major polysilicon suppliers attempt to leverage the further polysilicon cost reduction through their newly added capacity in China, all buyers are revised their target asking price down. With the increasing low cost supply, major buyers strengthen wait-and-see stance on the procurements at this moment.

LG Solar Unveils NeON R with Enhanced Aesthetics and Energy Savings

LG Solar Unveils NeON R with Enhanced Aesthetics and Energy Savings

The NeON R module features "Back Contact" cell technology delivering an entirely black panel that is aesthetically pleasing and energy efficient. The cell's seamless, surface blends perfectly into nearly all rooftop designs while the module's electrodes are positioned on the rear of the cell. Using LG's N-type cell structure, the panels produce 365W of energy, up to 7.3kWp, compared to 5.8kWp of the p-type cell. The module's new design minimizes LID, thereby delivering a longer lifespan and increased energy output.
