Padua, Italy, April 8, 2021 (Solar Business Hub) — FuturaSun’s photovoltaic modules were selected by Genius Watter to power the off-grid desalination plant on the island of Boa Vista in the Cape Verde Archipelago, which is supplying the rural community of Varahdinha with drinking water and water for agricultural use.
According to a new report from market research and advisory firm Navigant Research, the global market for renewable energy monitoring and control (M&C) of solar PV and wind power assets is expected to reach an estimated $82.9 billion in cumulative revenue between 2019 and 2028, experiencing a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 12.5%.
Finland’s LUT University and the Energy Watch Group released the “Global Energy System Based on 100% Renewables. Power, Heat, Transport and Desalination Sectors” study, which simulates a transition to 100% renewable energy of the entire world, structured in nine major regions and 145 sub-regions on an hourly resolution of 5-year time periods from 2015 until 2050. The modelling computes the cost-optimal mix of technologies, based on locally available renewable energy sources.
According to the report, the transition to a global energy system based on 100% renewables can be achieved before 2050 if a strong policy framework is implemented.
The Clean Energy States Alliance (CESA) was selected by the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) to participate in a collaborative research effort to explore new ways solar energy can improve the affordability, reliability, and resiliency of the nation’s electric grid.
