solar enConvergent Energy + Power, a leading provider of energy storage solutions in North America, and National Grid, an electricity, natural gas, and clean energy delivery company serving more than 20 million people throughout New York and New England, announced the completion of one of the first solar-plus-storage systems providing a non-wires-alternative (NWA). The system, designed, constructed, and operated by Convergent, will deliver more cost-effective, reliable, and sustainable electricity to National Grid customers in Cicero, New York, while leveraging solar energy during nonpeak periods.
PV Module Price Index by EnergyBin gives the first real look at c-Si modules for sale in the secondary market
EnergyBin announces the release of their first annual (2021) PV Module Price Index for the Secondary Solar Market report. The PV module price index is the first of its kind for the secondary solar market giving the industry its first real look at the pricing of crystalline-silicon modules at a wholesale level, outside of the traditional distribution channel.
New short study by the Energy Watch Group (EWG) finds: Electricity would already be cheaper today with a full supply of 100% renewables
Berlin, Germany — In the coalition negotiations for the new German government, both ambitious climate protection and the reduction of electricity prices play a central role. The previous government still expects only 45% renewables in the electricity mix by 2025.
- Record-breaking growth in rooftop solar capacity in the UK.
- 97MW of solar PV deployed in Q3 on homes and businesses around the country.
97 MW of solar PV capacity was deployed on rooftops around the UK in the third quarter of 2021 – representing more than 90% of the total solar PV deployment of 107 MW for the quarter.
New data released by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) reveal that solar and wind energy continued to dominate renewable capacity expansion, jointly accounting for 91% of all net renewable additions in 2020.
New data released by Mercom Capital Group in its annual report on funding and merger and acquisition (M&A) activity for the solar sector in 2020 reveal that total corporate funding into the solar sector, including venture capital (VC) and private equity (PE), debt financing, and public market financing, came to $14.5 billion globally, which represents a 24% increase compared to the $11.7 billion in 2019.
SolarPower Europe launched its annual report EU Market Outlook for Solar Power revealing that European Union member states installed 18.2 GW of solar PV power capacity in 2020, representing an 11% improvement over the 16.2 GW deployed in the previous year, which makes 2020 the strongest growth year ever for solar in the EU since 2011.
This year, renewables will account for almost 90% of the increase in total power capacity worldwide and solar PV capacity additions are expected to reach nearly 107 GW, according to the Renewables 2020 report released this month by the International Energy Agency (IEA) providing a global outlook on renewables in the electricity heat and transport sectors for the next five years.
New analysis by IHS Markit finds that renewable corporate procurement in the United States grew more than in any other country, representing over 60% of the global market for corporate-driven renewable power purchase agreements (PPAs).
Latest figures released by financial advisory and asset management firm Lazard in its annual in-depth studies, comparing the costs of energy from various generation technologies and of energy storage technologies for different applications, show that the cost of renewable energy continues to decline and maintain competitiveness with the marginal cost of existing conventional generation technologies driven by, among other factors, decreasing capital costs, improving technologies and increased competition.
U.S., European and Indian companies continue to dominate the list of top utility-scale solar EPC contractors according to new data released this month by Wiki-Solar, a leading source of information about the global deployment of solar photovoltaic power stations.
