Justin Rowlatt for BBC News: Whatever happened to all the talk of international co-operation to tackle climate change that we heard during the climate conference in Paris just a few months ago? That is what many environmentalists are asking after the United States delivered a damaging blow to India's ambitious solar power programme this week. In response to a US complaint, a World Trade Organization (WTO) panel has ruled that India's National Solar Mission breaches trade rules. It judged that India's policies on buying locally made solar power equipment discriminates against imports. "The ink is barely dry on the UN Paris Climate Agreement, but clearly trade still trumps real action on climate change," Sam Cossar-Gilbert of Friends of the Earth International said in a statement. But is the decision really as damaging as many commentators seem to think? Let's start at the beginning. Cont'd...

Both prices of multi-crystalline and mono-crystalline solar panels fall this week. As China is heading into the slow season, the prices of solar panels in China have observed a noticeable decline. Meanwhile, with more and more trade-friendly capacities available outside China, major Chinese module makers, such as Jinko, are able to enter the U.S. market with more competitive price, and using strategic pricing to gain more market share in the U.S., the highest solar panel price over the world. With the obvious price competition, solar panel price in the US has shown the obvious drop recently. In Europe, as more Chinese module makers exit the MIP agreement, and leveraging the capacities available in the third countries, solar panel price in Europe is also pressured.

The SolarEdge PV inverter combines sophisticated digital control technology with efficient power conversion architecture to achieve superior solar power harvesting and best-in-class reliability. The fixed-voltage technology ensures the solar inverter is always working at its optimal input voltage over a wider range of string lengths and regardless of environmental conditions. A proprietary data monitoring receiver has been integrated into the inverter and aggregates the power optimizer performance data from each PV module. This data can be transmitted to the web and accessed via the SolarEdge Monitoring Portal for performance analysis, fault detection and troubleshooting of PV systems.
