PVinsights : Poly-silicon price is improved in China in July, but still weak outside China.

The average poly-silicon price has risen up owing to Chinese poly-silicon makers. Because of the expiration of the trade handbooks of their Chinese customers, a number of non-Chinese poly-silicon makers are seeing their sales to China being challenged by Chinese suppliers who now benefit from more price competitiveness. Chinese poly-silicon makers now have the leverage to pull up their selling price quotations within China, while non-Chinese suppliers have to adjust to the levy of import duties and AD & CVD charges on their products

PVinsights: The increasing demand helps solar price improvement or relief.

Overall Module price performed a mild drop this week, as global demand is gradually recovering since late May. Multi-crystalline module price stands still in China, as the demand is improving slowly. In the US, solar demand is promisingly increasing, although some solar module suppliers are trying to raise price quotes accordingly.

Trina Solar to Invest $500 Million in India-Based Solar Plant

Per a media report, Trina Solar Limited is going to invest $500 million for building a 2-gigawatt solar module plant in India in partnership with Welspun Energy Ltd. The plant's output will be exported to the U.S. and European markets, which have imposed punitive trade duties on solar shipments from China.  The facility will be built in either Gujarat or Andhra Pradesh. Construction of the plant will be completed in two phases over a period of about 18 months.

This cloudy-day black silicon solar cell can hit a record 22.1% efficiency

Researchers at Finland’s Aalto University have achieved a record-breaking 22.1% efficiency for a nanostructured silicon, or black, solar cell. They accomplished this by overlaying a thin, passivating film on the nanostructures by a process known as atomic layer deposition, and by integrating all of the metal contacts on the cell’s back side. Perhaps the best part: Black solar cells work really well on cloudy days. “This is an advantage particularly in the north, where the sun shines from a low angle for a large part of the year,” said professor Hele Savin from Aalto University, who coordinated the study, in a statement. “We have demonstrated that in winter Helsinki, black cells generate considerably more electricity than traditional cells, even though both cells have identical efficiency values.” Using the aforementioned process, the team managed to beat their previous record by almost 4%, which is a stunning achievement. The new cells have a certified external quantum efficiency of 96% at 300nm wavelengths, which the team said shows that charged carrier surface recombination is no longer a problem — and that for the first time, the black silicon isn’t limiting energy conversion efficiency. And thanks to the inherent properties of black solar cells, they can capture solar radiation at low angles, generating more electricity over the full duration of a day as compared with traditional cells.
