  • Solar PV financing
    August 20, 2021 Solar PV financing
    The focus of photovoltaic financing in emerging markets is gradually shifting The growing popularity of solar investment means that financing issues for photovoltaic developers in emerging markets are increasingly focused on the creditworthiness of the off-takers, rather than the project. For example, in West Africa and other regions, “there are many offtakers with poor credit,” said Ragnar Gerig, head of energy for Africa and Asia at the German Investment and Development Corporation. “The development environment facing the solar industry is becoming more and more challenging.” Ragnar pointed out that although financing for many emerging market projects is still difficult, "at present, solar energy is the easiest energy to invest in in any country. In the past 10 years, the cost of solar power generation has dropped by nearly 90%. The equipment is also quite competitive. Complicating the risk assessment of emerging markets is that in many countries, including major markets such as South Africa, the electricity prices in power purchase agreements are often paid in local currencies, which may expose project owners to currency fluctuation risks. While taking these factors into account, local lenders in emerging markets are increasingly accepting solar energy, and developers are paying more and more attention to more attractive project financing methods, successfully attracting important new investments to the market. According to the REN21 "2015 Global Renewable Energy Status Report", in fact, "solar power generation was the industry that received the most financing in 2014, accounting for 55% ($1.496 trillion) of all new investment in renewable energy and fuel power generation. " The popularity of solar energy has been supported by many initiatives. For example, the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) plans to cooperate with local financial institutions in Africa and India to improve the photovoltaic investment environment. IRENA Knowledge, Policy and Finance Director HenningWuester said, "In addition to strengthening due diligence and project preparation, developers can also cooperate with public financial institutions through on-lending or joint loan programs to reduce perceived risks." Developers can also take another measure to reduce the risk, that is, the use of practice-tested technology. If the technology is reliable, it will help to consolidate the business, LuxResearch solar analyst Mark Barineaux said. In recent years, the "yieldco" financing model without potential risks and cumbersome procedures has become more and more popular. For example, the listing of the "Terra Form Power yieldco" platform on NASDAQ brought its parent company SunEdison a net income of US$533 million. This financing model is suitable for development projects where local banks have not dared to set foot in the region, or will become an important part of the financing of future renewable energy projects in emerging markets. In short, the belief that invest...

    December 08, 2020 Find out how much solar panels mounting cost in your area
    What is solar racking? In order to safely fasten solar panels to buildings or the ground, solar installation companies use solar racking products (also known as solar pv mounting) that hold solar equipments in place in an installation. Solar racking is usually made from aluminum, which works well for rooftop installations due to its combination of strength and low weight, as compared to other metals or material. How much does solar racking cost? Although solar racking is a vital part of any solar installation, the cost of racking represents only a small portion of a total installation. According to the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), solar racking should cost approximately $0.10 per Watt (W). Given that the average cost of a solar panel installation on EnergySage is $2.98/W, racking should make up roughly3 percent of the total system cost.

  • Sweden builds 1GW photovoltaic project
    August 19, 2021 Sweden builds 1GW photovoltaic project
    Swedish developer announces plans to build a 1GW photovoltaic project in the country Swedish photovoltaic developer Helios Nordic Energy AB announced that it plans to add 10 ground-mounted photovoltaic projects in Sweden. "Helios Nordic Energy is recruiting suitable investors to invest in four of the solar parks, all of which are located in the SE3 prime land in Sweden," a company spokesperson told Photovoltaic magazine. "The total capacity of these projects is about 90MW." The developer stated that 10 new projects are located in southern Sweden with a total capacity of about 500MW, which will make the total capacity of the company's photovoltaic project portfolio exceed 1GW. "The company's next goal is to increase the total development capacity to 2GW in suitable areas by 2022," said Helios CEO Andreas Tunbjer. The company has not announced further technical and financial details. At present, several large-scale photovoltaic projects without subsidies have been developed in Sweden. Solar energy developer Alight and Swedish catering expert Martin & Servera signed a 10-year power purchase agreement (PPA) for an 8MW solar park in June. In addition, they signed a 5 year agreement for an 18 MW solar park in December. Annual power purchase agreement. The prospects of this industry in the Nordic region are still unclear, but signals from neighboring Denmark indicate that the region is at the beginning of a new phase. It is worth noting that the Nordic countries have rich experience in private PPA in the field of wind power generation, which is very valuable to developers and investors in the solar energy industry.

  • Japan's solar power plant withstood the test of heavy rain
    August 12, 2021 Japan's solar power plant withstood the test of heavy rain
    Japan Electric Power Company verifies whether solar power plants can withstand heavy rain Last month, there were heavy rains and heavy rains in many parts of Henan. Disasters such as waterlogging and mountain floods in many places have caused great damage to the safety of local residents' lives and property and the country's infrastructure such as transportation and energy. As we all know, Japan is also a country with frequent disasters. From May to July each year, various parts of Japan enter the rainy season, and there are many typhoons approaching and landing in Japan in summer and autumn. Heavy rainfall caused by rainy seasons and typhoons caused floods and other disasters throughout Japan. (Source: WeChat public account "PV JAPAN BRIDGE" ID: PVJapanBridge) In order to minimize damage to solar power generation facilities and surrounding land caused by mudslides and landslides caused by heavy rains and floods, the Japanese electric power company Smart Energy has conducted research on the relationship between mudslides and solar power generation facilities. 1. The foundation is an important issue for solar power stations Smart Energy maintains approximately 900 solar power stations across Japan. According to the company's statistics, the most common problems in these power stations are "communication abnormalities", while the second most common problems are "ground-related problems." Due to the large area of large solar power plants, trees are often cut down and the slope is leveled during the construction process. When installing solar panels on the stand, the ground leveling work is essential, and this will lead to various land problems. After leveling the land, even if it is constructed in accordance with the drainage plan, it still takes a certain amount of time to wait for the surface of the land to become firm. After the power station is completely completed, if it is allowed to develop, the foundation of the power station will gradually become unstable. Therefore, maintenance of vegetation protection and growth on the ground of the power station, fine-tuning of drainage routes, and soil surface protection and treatment are essential. Therefore, soil issues are the most important "commercial basis" for large-scale solar companies, and it is also an aspect that requires special attention. It can be seen that many solar power plants in Japan have foundation problems. So how did Japan's so many solar power plants appear? What are the land standards for solar power plants in Japan? 2. From "golf course" to "large solar power station" In restricting the indiscriminate development of large-scale solar power plants, permits under the Forest Law play an important role. According to the Japanese Forest Law, relevant practitioners are obliged to obtain forest land development permits from relevant authorities when developing forests with an area of more than 1 hectare. Violators will be banned from forest land development in accordance with the law...

  • New Jersey Brings First Community Solar Project Online
    April 08, 2021 New Jersey Brings First Community Solar Project Online
    Gov. Phil Murphy says New Jersey’s first community solar project has been completed. The project, constructed in Perth Amboy by Solar Landscape, was developed as part of the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities’ Community Solar Energy Pilot Program. Established in 2019, as directed by Murphy’s Executive Order No. 28 (2018), the program ensures underserved and overburdened communities can access the health and financial benefits of renewable energy. The completion of the project marks a milestone in the administration’s commitment to environmental justice by expanding access to renewable energy and is a key component of reaching Murphy’s goal of 100% clean energy by 2050. “Since day one, my administration has been clear on our pursuit of an equitable and inclusive clean energy future for all New Jerseyans,” says Murphy. “The Community Solar Energy Pilot Program is a smart and sustainable component of our clean energy future that positions New Jersey in the innovation economy while investing in communities and ensuring environmental justice for all.” In 2019, the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities awarded nearly 78 MW to 45 projects based on their location, community engagement and local benefits – particularly for low- and moderate-income (LMI) communities. All 45 projects will dedicate at least 51% of their capacity to LMI households. The second year of the pilot program, which opened in October 2020 with applications due Feb. 5, has allotted 150 MW of community solar energy capacity – ;doubling the capacity of year one and ensuring at least 40% of awarded projects serve LMI communities. The program provides access to solar energy through a subscription-based model that virtually connects customers to a solar installation within their electric utility company’s territory. The resulting energy output is divided among multiple participants known as subscribers – which can be homes or businesses – and reflected as a credit on their utility bill. This allows households – who previously lacked access due to cost, shaded property or lack of roof control – to participate in a more equitable solar market. Community solar makes going solar possible without having to purchase, install or maintain solar panels.

  • How solar panels work
    November 22, 2021 How solar panels work
    1. Sunlight shines on the semiconductor pn junction to form a new hole-electron pair. Under the action of the pn junction electric field, holes flow from the n-zone to the p-zone, and electrons from the p-zone to the n-zone, which are formed after the circuit is turned on Current. This is the working principle of photovoltaic effect solar cells. 2. Solar power generation methods -There are two methods of solar power generation, one is the light-heat-electric conversion method, and the other is the light-electric direct conversion method: ①The light-heat-electric conversion method uses solar radiation to generate electricity. Generally, a solar collector converts the absorbed heat into vapor of the working fluid, and then drives a steam turbine to generate electricity. The former process is a light-heat conversion process; the latter process is a heat-electric conversion process. ② The light-electricity direct conversion method uses the photoelectric effect to directly convert solar radiation energy into electrical energy. The basic device of the light-electricity conversion is the solar cell.1. Solar panel (also called solar cell module) The assembly of multiple solar cells is the core part of the solar power system and the most important part of the solar power system. 2. Features and advantages of solar panels: ①High conversion rate, high efficiency output; ②Excellent low light effect; ③Unique technology makes the components beautiful, strong and wind-resistant, and easy to install; ④Solar panels have a wide range of applications and many fields; ⑤Save resources, save electricity and energy, simple operation;
