The US residential solar sector is set to break installation records this year as clean energy development proves resilient to disruptions caused by COVID-19.That is according to a new report from BloombergNEF (BNEF), which predicts 3GW of residential solar PV capacity additions this year, up from last year’s record of 2.8GW.
Governments should focus on mini-grids as a means to enabling access to reliable electricity for hundreds of millions of people that don’t yet have it and mini-grids using solar and batteries have matured as a technology class, but financing such projects remains problematic, a new report has found.
Ever since when on 31 May 2018, China’s National Energy Administration (NEA) abruptly and without warning decided to stop approving any new solar PV project until further notice, it was fair to assume that its domestic market would take a different course of development during the remaining period o

The global energy storage market will grow to a cumulative 942GW/2,857GWh capacity by 2040, attracting US$1.2 trillion in investment, caused by sharply decreasing battery costs, according to a Bloomberg NEF (BNEF) report.
Major horizontal single-axis solar tracker firm Soltec is opening the first of its kind ‘Bifacial Tracking Evaluation Center’ (BiTEC) in Livermore, California to further scientifically evaluate the performance of bifacial PV modules and the tracking performance with single-axis trackers. Soltec said
Researchers at Solliance and ECN have fabricated a 6 inch industrially processed c-Si cell with a perovskite top layer that is mechanically stacked using ECN’s MWT-SHJ (metal-wrap-through silicon heterojunction) design that has achieved conversion efficiencies of 26.3%. The work was publicised durin
