• More than 50 different module models are evaluated in this year's PV Module Reliability Scorecard • Report identifies 20 high performing manufacturers, including several first-time manufacturers in the "high performers" ranking • Modules included in the tests were produced in 10 different countries, reflecting the global deployment of manufacturing
Multi-crystalline module suppliers in dilemma as turning into losses due to irrational price surge in the upstream. As the module prices were fixed in the contracts that were signed earlier, the suppliers had no room to raise their prices along with upstream components and have to suffer from losses at their own costs. Meanwhile, since module manufacturers did not prepare enough stock to meet the shipment deadline by June 30th, they are forced to accept the price hike due to looming shipment deadline. Solar panel prices in China has stabilized in RMB term, but slightly improved in USD term due to appreciation of RMB. However, the situation has became even harsher for module producers while bidding prices kept renewing the lowest record in overseas markets, especially in the emerging countries.
The Intersolar AWARD is celebrating its anniversary: For the tenth time running, the panel was asked to evaluate a large number of submissions.
TS4-M and TS4-S now included in the solar industry's highest powered single module optimizer solution for modules up to 475W
SMUD Forecasts Customer DER Adoption in First-of-Kind Holistic Utility Analysis
Clear coating developed for the military has incredible potential for solar, wind and other alternative sources of energy.
Traditional hydrophobic coatings are clear and abrasion resistant but do not shed fluid easily. Superhydrophobic coatings are generally great at shedding water but are not clear, and are easily removed. Whether it's abrasion resistance, oil repellency or visual clarity, conventional coatings have their limitations.
Developed and supported by a broad coalition of energy advocates across the United States, the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) and Vote Solar released a set of principles today intended to help guide and unify future state-level solar rate advocacy work.
Domestically-produced panels supported by legacy of quality manufacturing
The Ku Module portfolio uses Canadian Solar's proprietary black silicon cell technology. The black silicon cell efficiency exceeds that of the current standard poly cells in the market.
Infocast's New York Energy REVolution Summit will Help Create Viable Clean Energy Projects in New York
The Summit will bring together utility, distributed energy resource (DER) providers and other clean energy professionals to create development processes and workable projects.
This year's exhibition focuses on the new energy world. One of the highlights is the special exhibit Smart Renewable Energy. Other topics include new financing and business models for photovoltaics (PV), large-scale PV power plants and the operation and maintenance of PV installations. Manufacturers, suppliers, distributors, service providers and partners of the solar industry will be in Munich until June 2.
Dedicated to innovations and trends in the storage of renewable energies, ees Europe can look back on a dynamic history: It began in 2014 with 48 exhibitors and 2,100 square meters of exhibition space. In 2016, a whopping 212 exhibitors presented their innovations across 12,500 square meters.
Intersolar - Imec Presents Highly Accurate Model for Energy Yield Prediction of Photovoltaic Modules
Solar cell efficiencies and photovoltaic module performances are typically only measured under standard lab conditions. However, in reality, photovoltaic modules are operated in the field under conditions that are substantially different from these standard lab conditions.
NABCEP Adds PV System Inspector and Solar Heating System Inspector Certifications to its Industry-Leading Programs
Inspectors play a critical role in ensuring quality renewable energy installations. These new credentials are meant to provide a mechanism for inspection professionals to demonstrate their knowledge of PV and Solar Heating systems.

The addition of energy storage to an existing or new utility-scale PV installation allows system owners and operators the opportunity to capture additional revenues. Traditional storage plus solar applications have involved the coupling of independent storage and PV inverters at an AC bus or the use of multi-input hybrid inverters. An alternative approach - coupling energy storage to PV arrays with a DC-to-DC converter - can help maximize production and profits for existing and new utility-scale installations. DC-Coupled Utility-Scale Solar Plus Storage leads to higher round-trip efficiencies and lower cost of integration with existing PV arrays and at the same time, opens up new revenue streams not possible with traditional AC-coupled storage, including clipping recapture and low voltage harvesting, while being eligible for valuable tax incentives.
