  • France supports photovoltaic development
    August 31, 2021 France supports photovoltaic development
    France approves the new "Climate Law" including several measures to support the development of photovoltaics Recently, the French "Climate and Resilience Act" was formally promulgated and published in the country's official gazette. The main purpose of the bill is to improve air quality in big cities, support building renovation, promote electric travel, protect urban green spaces and introduce more vegetarian food in restaurants. "This ambitious comprehensive regulation will imprint a permanent ecological mark on our development model," said Barbara Pompili, Minister of Ecological Transition, in a media release. "We are focusing on the next steps: the development of secondary legislation to implement the measures in the law in the daily lives of French people." For the solar photovoltaic industry, there are several measures that may have a direct impact on project development in the next few years. These include the reduction of the cost of interconnection of photovoltaic systems with a scale of no more than 500kW and the solar energy supply of new buildings. According to this bill, starting from January 1, 2023, new commercial and industrial buildings, as well as warehouses and hangars over 500m2, and office buildings over 1,000m2 must achieve 30% of the surface solar energy. Starting from January 1, 2024, a newly-built parking lot exceeding 500m2 must realize 50% of the surface solar energy. If there is a garage in the area, it should be 100%. The bill also streamlines the authorization process required to install solar energy facilities on wasteland in coastal areas, and the possibility of initiating tenders for large-scale energy storage and hydrogen energy projects in French metropolises.

  • Japan is brewing a national carbon trading market
    August 30, 2021 Japan is brewing a national carbon trading market
    Recently, the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry of Japan proposed to launch a national demonstration carbon credit trading market in fiscal year 2022-2023, but it and the Ministry of Environment of Japan have always been in disagreement on how to price carbon. The industry generally believes that Japan has not yet figured out an optimal path to achieve large-scale emission reductions without adding additional economic burdens to enterprises. Plan to start between 2022-2023 The Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry of Japan stated that as part of achieving the goal of carbon neutrality by 2050, it plans to launch a national demonstration carbon credit trading market between April 2022 and March 2023 to vigorously promote the monetization of carbon emission reductions. Encourage more local companies to reduce emissions independently, and at the same time open up to multinational companies, it is expected that 400-500 companies will participate. This carbon credit trading market will also be open to ASEAN countries, and companies from other countries such as Europe and the United States are also welcome. Participants can purchase carbon credits to complete their emission reduction tasks, and they can also sell unused credits. However, participating companies must disclose their emissions and allow the government to review them annually. It is reported that Japan plans to design a carbon credit trading system and develop carbon footprint monitoring infrastructure under the framework of this carbon credit trading market to better manage and process carbon credit trading. Fumhiro Kajigawa, director of the Environmental Economic Office of the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry of Japan, said that further discussions are needed to clarify the overall structure and implementation details of the carbon credit trading market, which may involve carbon neutral products. "We will introduce carbon-neutral products on a voluntary basis, such as the increasingly popular carbon-neutral LNG." He said, "However, this requires several stages of discussion before we can reach a conclusion." Energy consulting agency Argus pointed out that Japan is brewing a carbon credit trading market, hoping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through an appropriate domestic carbon pricing mechanism, and at the same time promote Japan to become one of the important carbon emission trading centers in Asia. Many Japanese companies have tested their own carbon prices The industry generally believes that Japan must start from companies to achieve its emission reduction targets, especially those that are carbon-intensive or high-emission companies. In fact, more and more Japanese companies have begun to implement internal carbon pricing or introduce carbon neutral products, which provides support for the establishment of Japan's national carbon credit trading market. Japan’s Kyodo News recently reported that more and more Japanese companies have introduced internal carbon pric...

  • Dubai 298.7MW PV power generation
    August 27, 2021 Dubai 298.7MW PV power generation
    Dubai: 298.7MW distributed photovoltaic power generation capacity and exponential growth According to the Dubai Water and Power Authority (DEWA), as of the end of March, a total of 6,727 buildings were installed with photovoltaic power generation systems driven by the Shams Dubai Net Metering Program in the emirate. The total power generation capacity of these systems is approximately 298.7 MW. This figure shows that since the last set of statistics was released in September 2019, approximately 190MW of net metered electricity has been added. This exponential growth shows Dubai's strong interest in residential and commercial photovoltaic power generation. In August 2019, DEWA reported that the total installed capacity applied to join the Emirate’s net metering plan has reached 323MW. Shams Dubai plans to start in 2015 to allow owners of residential and commercial photovoltaic systems to sell surplus electricity to the grid at the same consumer price-and settle at the end of the month. The UAE’s goal is to achieve three-quarters of its total power generation from renewable energy sources by 2050. The tender for the Dubai Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park with an installed capacity of 5GW has provided support for large-scale solar projects, which is by far the largest solar project in the United Arab Emirates and the Middle East.

  • Germany 2021 installed capacity 2.75GW
    August 04, 2021 Germany 2021 installed capacity 2.75GW
    Germany adds 2.75GW of PV installed capacity in the first half of 2021 According to the latest data from the Federal Network Agency (Bundesnetzagentur), Germany’s new photovoltaic installed capacity in June was 428.5 MW. In comparison, it was 403 MW in May this year and 437 MW in June 2020. The newly installed solar power generation capacity in the first six months of this year was 2.75 GW. In the same period last year, 2.36 GW of installed solar capacity was added. The newly added 612MW in April this year was still the month with the largest photovoltaic power generation in Germany. This figure is slightly lower than the data originally released. Among the monthly new projects, 306.7 MW are photovoltaic installations with a capacity of less than 300 kilowatts built according to the country’s feed-in tariff plan. In the first half of this year, the total capacity of the sector reached nearly 2 GW. As of the end of June, the cumulative capacity of all subsidized solar photovoltaic system in Germany reached 55.3 GW. Bundesnetzagentur also announced a new compensation standard that will begin in August. Solar subsidies will be reduced by 1.4% per month, and the fixed feed-in tariff for rooftop systems will be between 0.0736 Euro/kWh and 0.0560 Euro/kWh, depending on the scale.

  • UK Renewable Energy
    August 04, 2021 UK Renewable Energy
    UK:Renewable energy will account for 43% of power generation in 2020, and fossil fuels will drop sharply In 2020, the level of electricity generation from renewable energy in the UK once again set a new record-43% of the country's electricity comes from renewable resources including wind, solar and biogas, up from 37% in 2019. The British government today released the 2020 British Energy Statistics Summary (DUKES) compiled by the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS). The total energy production and consumption data last year confirmed the sharp drop in fossil fuel production and the increase in the share of renewable energy. Due to epidemic prevention measures, overall energy demand, including petroleum fuels for transportation, has fallen to the level of the 1950s, and total consumption has fallen by 13% year-on-year. In terms of power generation, the report emphasized the 67-day coal-free power generation period from April 10 to June 16 and the second 55-day coal-free power generation period that ended on August 12. The proportion of coal power in the total power generation has dropped to 1.8%, while the natural gas peak shaving power plant has reached 35.7%. The growth rate of renewable energy exceeds that of fossil fuels. DUKES data shows that since 2010, the amount of renewable energy power generation has increased from 6.9% to the current highest level in history. The status of solar The growth trend of solar power generation in the UK has slowed down, and in 2020 it will account for 28% of the renewable energy portfolio. The main reason for the 4.6% increase in solar power generation last year over 2019 was the better weather. Data from BEIS shows that in 2020, which is affected by the new crown pneumonia, the installed solar photovoltaic capacity will only increase by 238 MW. A recent BEIS survey to understand how to increase the power generation of rooftop solar installations found that small and medium-sized companies in the UK may be forced to pay higher taxes after installing photovoltaics. When the respondent was asked this question, the response was "obviously incredible and outrageous." In 2015, the British government began to substantially cut the long-term protective electricity price (FIT) for solar energy. Wind energy is better 13% of the UK’s electricity comes from offshore wind power and 11.1% from onshore turbines. The combined wind power generation in the UK in 2020 reached a record 75.7 TWh, accounting for 24.1% of the total. It is said that although the increase in power generation is not large, favorable wind conditions, including the stormy weather in the first quarter, have helped to increase power generation, so it has increased by 18% compared to the previous year. Offshore wind power generation is particularly noticeable, with an increase of 29% compared to last year. The only type of renewable energy that has declined in power generation is biogas, which the government attributed to the dec...

  • Japan revises draft energy plan to increase the proportion of green energy electricity in 2030
    July 30, 2021 Japan revises draft energy plan to increase the proportion of green energy electricity in 2030
    Japan revises draft energy plan to increase the proportion of green energy electricity in 2030 The unprecedented Tokyo Olympics means that the world's attention is focused on Japan, and the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry of the Rising Sun country took this opportunity to revise its draft energy plan for 2030. The new plan saw ambitious renewable energy doublings and drastic cuts in coal and natural gas. More importantly, the draft plan also proposes the construction of a hydrogen supply chain. The draft new plan aims to reduce Japan's emissions by 46% from the original 26% target (compared to 2013 levels). In order to achieve this goal, by 2030, the world's third largest economy needs renewable energy to account for 36-38% of its energy production structure, a significant increase from the previous target of 22-24%. Most importantly, the coal target has been lowered from 26% to 19%, and Japan’s heavy reliance on natural gas will drop from 56% to 41%. In all these changes, Japan’s nuclear target remains unchanged at 20-22%. Interestingly, Japan has included new fuels such as hydrogen and ammonia in its draft new plan, and said that by 2030, the plan will account for 1% of its energy mix. However, the plan did not specify that these new fuels must be green. What is not clear is how Japan has increased its renewable energy generation so significantly in the past decade. The country has such a shortage of available land that it is demolishing golf courses and replacing them with solar farms, using floating photovoltaics on lakes and reservoirs, and seeking to invest heavily in wind energy. However, most of the waters around Japan are too deep for traditional wind turbines, and floating wind turbines are still technically in their infancy. Considering that Japan is the largest buyer of Australian coal and thermal coal, and the world's largest importer of LNG (purchasing Australian exports worth US$15 billion in LNG in 2020), there is no doubt that Japan’s revised ambitions will have an impact on Australia The impact, perhaps especially with regard to the Morrison administration’s controversial “gas-led recovery”, for which it has pledged to provide private companies with US$224 million in funding for the development of the Northern Territory (NT) Beetaloo Basin.

  • Recurrent Energy Closes on Maplewood Solar Projects
    May 08, 2021 Recurrent Energy Closes on Maplewood Solar Projects
    Canadian Solar Inc. says its wholly-owned subsidiary, Recurrent Energy LLC, a utility-scale solar+storage project developer, has closed $282 million of debt financing to construct its Maplewood and Maplewood 2 solar projects, located in Pecos County, Texas. The financing was provided by a bank club led by Norddeutsche Landesbank which included Export Development Canada, Rabobank, National Bank of Canada and Bayerische Landesbank. “We are pleased to partner with Nord/LB, EDC, Rabobank, NBC and Bayern/LB in this important financing,” says Dr. Shawn Qu, chairman and CEO of Canadian Solar. “We are appreciative of these long-standing relationships with leading financial partners and value their continued support and trust as we execute on our growing pipeline in the U.S.,” he adds. The Maplewood Solar Project has a capacity of 327 MW and will deliver clean energy to Anheuser-Busch under a power purchase agreement (PPA), contributing to the brewer’s 2025 sustainability goals for the U.S. which include a 100% renewable purchased electricity target and a 25% reduction of carbon dioxide emissions across its supply chain. The clean energy delivered by the Maplewood Solar Project is estimated to cover 50% of the electricity consumption of Anheuser-Busch’s U.S. operations. The 40 MW Maplewood 2 Solar Project will deliver power to a Dallas-based oil and gas pipeline company, Energy Transfer Partners, under a 15-year PPA. This PPA marks Energy Transfer’s first-ever dedicated solar contract. The projects will utilize Canadian Solar’s high-efficiency bifacial modules which, relative to traditional monofacial modules, produce electricity from both sides of the panel thereby increasing total energy generation and improving reliability during winter months. According to a report by Wood Mackenzie and the Solar Energy Industries Association, Texas has the 4th largest solar installed base in the U.S. with currently over 4,300 MW of solar and an additional 13,300 MW expected to be installed over the next five years.

  • The development of over 10GW photovoltaic power plants is restricted
    August 26, 2021 The development of over 10GW photovoltaic power plants is restricted
    The development of over 10GW photovoltaic power plants is restricted In recent years, the US trade protection tendency has become increasingly serious, and in the photovoltaic field, tariffs and other means have been frequently used to attack overseas photovoltaic companies. However, manufacturing trade barriers have not only failed to become an umbrella for the US photovoltaic industry, but have dragged down the country's own energy transformation. According to the industry media "Photovoltaic Magazine", US photovoltaic manufacturers AuxinSolar and Suniva recently submitted a petition to the U.S. International Trade Commission, requesting the extension of the "201 tariff" imposed on imported solar cells and modules for 4 years. , Until February 2026. As soon as the news came out, it triggered heated discussions in the industry. The US Photovoltaic Industry Association SEIA pointed out sharply that the high tariff policy cannot promote the upgrading of domestic photovoltaic manufacturers in the United States to adapt to the global market competition. Excessive and inappropriate protection measures will cause negative effects instead. The scope and types of implementation continue to expand The United States has a long history of setting trade barriers to photovoltaic products. In 2011, the United States first carried out anti-dumping and countervailing anti-dumping investigations on solar cells and modules originating in China, and immediately required Chinese photovoltaic manufacturers to pay tax rates of 18.32%-249.96% for solar cells and modules exported to the United States. The dumping tax of the country, and the subsidy tax of 14.78%-15.97%. Since then, the United States has repeatedly increased its suppression of imported photovoltaic products. In 2014, the United States carried out a "dual reverse" investigation on other cells and components other than the products involved in the "dual reverse" investigation in 2011, and expanded the scope of the investigation from China to other countries and regions. 26.71%-151.98% dumping tax and 27.64%-49.21% subsidy tax. In 2018, the United States "increased its pace". SolarWorld and Sunvia, the US photovoltaic manufacturers, filed an application with the U.S. International Trade Commission. Starting from February of that year, a four-year "201 tariff" was imposed on all imported photovoltaic cells and modules. The annual tax rate is 30%, and it is superimposed on the original "double reverse" tax rate. It is worth noting that the original 201 investigation exempted the levy of tariffs on double-sided modules (double-sided modules are currently the mainstream choice in the high-end photovoltaic market and are popular because they can achieve double-sided power generation-editor's note), but in September 2020 In September, the United States not only abolished tariff reductions on double-sided modules, but also raised the tariff rate on imported photovoltaic modules from 15% to 18% in 2021. Now that t...

  • Spain launches 3.3GW renewable energy auction
    August 20, 2021 Spain launches 3.3GW renewable energy auction
    Spain launches 3.3GW renewable energy auction Teresa Ribera, Minister of the Ministry of Ecological Transformation and Population Challenges of Spain, announced that a new 3.3GW renewable energy installed capacity auction will be launched on August 19 and will include quotas for small-scale projects. Teresa Ribera said after meeting with Menorca’s City Council Chairman Susana Mora and the Island’s Mayor Committee, “Our aim is to continue auctioning renewable energy... and continue to promote the transformation of the power system in an orderly manner.” She added, "This time we hope to implement a considerable proportion of renewable wind energy [and] the same considerable photovoltaic power generation, but there are two characteristics, which we have learned from the industry requirements research in the past few months." She pointed out that this time it will be allocated a "ultra-fast" quota of 600MW for small projects. In the last round of renewable energy auctions held in January, the Spanish government allocated a total of 3.034 GW of clean energy installed capacity at an average price of €24.47/MWh ($29.62), including 2.036GW of solar photovoltaic and 998 MW of wind energy.
