Australia is looking to build a massive solar farm with storage and then export that power to Asia using the longest power cable ever built in the world. This project has been in the works for some time but is now getting some major backing with the Australian government also approving it. Australia has always […]

China has been the prime driver of solar capacity additions globally over the past 5-6 years as it installs nearly 30%-40% of the total global solar energy capacity every year. The size of the Chinese solar market dwarfs the other large markets such as India, USA by a factor of 4x-5x. Even in 2020, the […]

While India has become one of the largest markets in the world in terms of solar and wind energy installations, the manufacturing industry has not really kept up. The Chinese manufacturers through their state-driven capitalism have managed to bankrupt most Indian solar companies like others around the world.

United Kingdom has had a silver lining due to the COVID crisis which has led to hundreds of thousands of cases in the country. The lockdown that was imposed resulted in a sharp fall in the demand for power which is similar to what has been seen in other countries as well.  Also like other […]

The Australian energy market operator has brought in a regulation by which it will be able to remotely control the operation of private rooftop solar systems using smart inverters which it has made mandatory for installation of new rooftop solar systems. Australia has one of the highest per capita installations of rooftop solar systems with […]

Many countries such as Brazil, Germany, etc. have combined renewable energy auctions of both wind and solar energy to get the cheapest prices for green power generation instead of going for separate auctions for solar and wind energy. This gives them greater optionality and variety in terms of load generation and prices. However, solar energy’s sharp technological improvement […]
