Solar panel price declines marginally this week, mainly affected by solar panel price drop in the US. Without the further RMB depreciation against USD, solar panel price in China becomes stable in USD term. On the other hand, since some Chinese solar panel makers have been doing the price competition in efforts to gain more market share in the U.S. market, solar panel price in the U.S. is being pressured. Nevertheless, solar panel prices in Europe and Japan remain flat, as the demand stay constantly, as Chinese solar panel manufacturers in these regions are still not able to do the price competition under the solar cell cost rising. In India and the emerging countries, solar panel price stays stable, as the demand has maintained solid. As the result, overall solar panel price drops slightly as pressured by the strategic price competition in the U.S. market.
ViZn's 128 kW/320 kWh flow battery system expected to be commissioned in the second quarter of 2016.
In October 29 2015, IHS issued a research note to warn about a potential solar wafer supply shortage in 2016. Now, as we enter into the first quarter of 2016, we have found new evidence to confirm this earlier concern.
Offshore wind conference to bring world's leading experts on offshore wind energy to help stimulate growth of multi-billion dollar market
Yomi Kazeem for Quartz: Africa is already waking up to the possibilities that renewable energy provides, the African Union has pledged a $20 billion investment over the next decade. In East Africa, pay-as-you-go solar energy services arealready proving a mainstream success. In West Africa, things are still at an early experimental stage. One such experiment is a solar-powered football pitch which also uses kinetic energy generated by footballers playing. Located at a teacher’s college in Lagos, Nigeria’s commercial center, the innovative soccer pitch was launched last year in a three-way collaboration between energy giant Shell; music star Akon, who has been championing solar energy on the continent; and Pavegen, a UK-based start-up which has a target of providing low-cost renewable energy solutions to Africa’s electricity problems. Perhaps the most interesting technological feature of the solar-powered pitch—only the second ever launched across the world (the first was launched in Brazil in 2014)—is that it combines both kinetic and solar energy to produce electricity.

Solar is expected to have an amazing year in 2016 by most accounts. As photovoltaic equipment continues to experience high demand prices will fall albeit at a slower rate than originally predicted. Meanwhile solar installations will grow in more markets while the U.S. installs more than 10 gigawatts of new solar power.
Baker Electric announces record growth and an impressive installed and contracted project total of 1 GW+ for its utility scale, commercial and residential solar businesses.

The IMO FireRaptor provides three forms of Solar Panel Rapid Shutdown to ZERO VOLTS in case of fire or other emergency: Manual Panel Shutdown to 0V Operated from Ground Level, Automatic Panel Shutdown to 0V at >85°C (185°F) Temperature, and an automatic Panel Shutdown to 0V on External Power Loss. The FireRaptor can be installed without any set-up and with any string inverter as its functionality is completely independent. "Plug & Play" style installation using industry standard connectors is easy, whether fitted to new installs or retrofitted to existing projects to upgrade fire safety functionality. Meeting NEC2017's regulation to switch DC current at the PV panel in under 30 seconds, FireRaptor is remains one of the safest and most effective means of isolating DC current at the source, and the only rapid shutdown with a 20 year warranty.
