Enel Green Power discuss domination of South African onshore wind with international panel on sustainability
With almost 2,000MW of onshore wind South Africa is under the global spotlight as the industry's most exciting market.
With the latest announcement of Abengoa winning the first international bid in Chile with a tower project, the market trend towards this technology grows. CSP Today has published a complimentary report in which it outlines how tower technology is set to take the lead in Chile.
The California Public Utilities Commission's recent 1.3GW storage mandate to be fulfilled by the states 3 major utilities by 2020 has led to utilities across the nation putting procurement plans in place to avoid being caught out by a wholesale federal roll out of similar legislation.
The new Parabolic Trough Report 2014: Cost, Performance and Thermal Storage published by CSP Today gives new clarity to cost and performance of concentrated solar power parabolic trough technology.
Demand for electricity in South Africa has increased progressively over several years and the grid now faces supply and demand challenges. As a result, the Department of Energy has implemented a new Integrated Resource Plan to enhance generation capacity and promote energy efficiency. Photovoltaics (PV) and concentrated solar power (CSP) are set to be the main beneficiaries from the new plan having their initial allocation raised considerably.
Sub-Saharan Africa is one of the most exciting solar markets in the world
Germany’s solar power industry shed a staggering 5,000 jobs over the past two years, reducing the size of the industry by more than half, according to new data released on Tuesday by the Federal Office for Statistics. A prolonged supply glut induced by cheap Chinese solar imports has resulted in a scourge of bankruptcies at several of Germany’s erstwhile elite solar manufacturers, including Q-Cells, Conergy and Solon. In 2012, the solar industry employed more than 10,000 workers in Germany. More than half of those jobs have vanished over the past 24 months, according to figures from the Federal Office for Statistics. The solar jobs data was shared with reporters from Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, which stated that less than 5,000 Germans are currently employed by the solar power industry – the lowest employed level in nearly half a decade. Similar data was not available for other sectors of the renewable energy industry, but some signs of distress have surfaced in sectors outside of solar. In 2013, Germany’s offshore wind power manufacturers cut more than 2,000 jobs, according to the Industrial Union of Metalworkers, the Germany’s largest metalworkers’ union.
