In The Spotlight
In general, Remote Monitoring Systems are designed to monitor large or complex systems such as Oil & Gas refineries, Power Plants, Network Operation centers, Airports, Spacecraft, Process Industries etc. with Programming Logic control (PLC) procedures.
A specialist in executing solar EPC projects, Hartek Power Pvt Ltd is rapidly advancing on the solar front.
At a time when solar sector has reached a new level of opportunities and optimism, Goldi Green has achieved a phenomenal growth and has set an ambitious target for itself, keeping pace with the Prime Minister Mr. Modi’s increased target of solar sector from 20 GW to 100 GW for India.
Below are the excerpts of our recent interview with Mr. Xiande Li, Chairman, Jinko Solar
Standard Solar, Inc., a leading solar energy company specializing in the development and financing of solar electric systems nationwide, and Choptank Electric Cooperative, Inc. recently celebrated the groundbreaking of a new solar project.
Arowana Inc. (“ARWA”) (NASDAQ: ARWA, ARWAU, ARWAR, ARWAW), a public investment vehicle formed for the purpose of effecting a merger, acquisition or similar business combination, and VivoPower International PLC (“VivoPower”), a global solar power company, announced that they have amended the contribution agreement pursuant to which ARWA will contribute cash held in its trust account to VivoPower in exchange for ordinary shares of VivoPower.
Airbnb, the world's leading community-driven hospitality company and SolarCity Corp. (NASDAQ: SCTY), the nation's #1 solar power provider, are announcing a new partnership that will connect Airbnb hosts and guests with an affordable and sustainable way to power their homes with solar energy, and are releasing estimates of the environmental benefits of home sharing for travelers.
Ecoplexus Inc., a leading global developer of solar photovoltaic (PV) projects, announced that it has begun construction on three more ground-mounted installations in North Carolina.
Officials from Colorado Springs Utilities and NextEra Energy Resources joined local community leaders to celebrate the commissioning of the Clear Spring Ranch Solar Array south of Colorado Springs.
Legend Solar has been recognized as one of the fastest growing businesses by MountainWest Capital Network in the 22nd annual Utah 100 Awards Program.
Ascent Solar enters into a Securities Purchase Agreement with a new accredited investor for the private placement of $1 million.
SPI Energy Co., Ltd. ("SPI Energy" or the "Company"), a global provider of photovoltaic (PV) solutions for business, residential, government and utility customers and investors,announced that the Bank of Jiangsu has approved an 8-year project finance for a 4.8 MW photovoltaic solar energy DG plant in Nantong City, Jiangsu Province (the "Project").
We have estimated the capacity creation of solar power based on the total capacity addition needs of the power sector and the share of the incremental capacity that solar could take as follows:
Photovoltaic (PV) module technologies are characterized according to Standard Test Conditions (STC) as per IEC 60904-31.
PV panels create unique waste-management challenges along with the increasing waste streams forecast. Apart from in the EU, end-of-life treatment requirements across the world for PV panels are set by waste regulations applying generically to any waste rather than dedicated to PV.
Mercom Capital Group, llc, a global clean energy communications and consulting firm, forecasts another year of solar growth with installations expected to reach 64.7 GW in 2016 up from 57.8 GW forecast for 2015.
PV panel waste streams will increase alongside worldwide PV deployment. This publication is the first to quantify potential PV panel waste streams in the period until 2050.
Liquidity risk may be a key concern to renewable energy investors when, for instance, utilities are affected by liquidity constraints or when the timing of cash receipts and payments is mismatched.
Risk mitigation is especially important in renewable energy projects because of their high upfront capital requirement. Financial de-risking instruments accompanied by sound policy can reduce the financing costs of renewable energy investment and help attract capital at scale (Waissbein et al., 2013).
Directing energy sector investment towards renewables means dissolving market barriers currently obstructing the development and financing of renewable energy projects. The technical aspects of renewable energy, lack of familiarity, limited knowledge and skills among project proponents and local financial institutions all reinforce a lack of track record and reliable investment data, especially in emerging markets. Investors find it hard to identify attractive projects, and project developers find it hard to identify investors. This often becomes a key barrier to renewable energy investment.

Below are the excerpts of our recent interview with Kartik Sachdeva, Marketing Head Solar & PK Jain, Marketing-Global Business
Mr. Kiran Patil, Managing Director, PLG Clean Energy Projects Private Limited
Do you feel the Indian solar market is overheating and needs to cool down to avoid problems in the long run?
My view is, the Solar market in India is evolving, it is not overheating.
With a target to have an operational solar power capacity of 100 GW by March 2022, the Indian government hasannual capacity addition targets for the next few years. By early March this year more than 5.7 GW of solar power capacity was operational in India.The Ministry of New & Renewable Energy (MNRE) plans to add 12 GW,15 GW and 16 GW solar power capacity in the financial years 2016-17, 2017-18 and 2018-19, respectively.
To fly a plane around the world on solar energy alone was considered almost impossible until Solar Impulse took to the skies last year, setting a new record for the longest non-stop flight*.
