According to the latest figures released by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) in its seventh edition of Renewable Energy and Jobs – Annual Review, jobs in the renewable energy sector reached 11.5 million globally last year, led by solar PV with 3.8 million jobs amounting to a third of the total.
Hybrid systems of floating solar panels and hydropower plants may hold the technical potential to produce a significant portion of the electricity generated annually across the globe, according to an analysis by researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL).
Floating solar photovoltaics (FPV) is an emerging, and increasingly viable, application of photovoltaics (PV) in which systems are sited directly on waterbodies.
Photovoltaics (PV) dominated as the main new power-generating technology source added to grids in dozens of countries ranging from Australia, to India, Italy, Namibia, Uruguay and the U.S. in 2019, according to complete and proprietary data compiled by research company BloombergNEF (BNEF).
Solar PV system costs in the US are falling faster than anticipated across all market segments, primarily driven by module price reduction, according to new research from Wood Mackenzie.
New report shows that the United States can deliver 90 percent clean, carbon free electricity nationwide by 2035, dependably, at no extra cost to consumer bills and without the need for new fossil fuel plants.
