The latest quarterly edition of Solar Media’s technical journal for the global downstream PV industry, PV Tech Power, is out now and available as a free download.

Published every three months, the journal combines industry-contributed papers and expert analysis with thoughts, research and insights from the editorial team at PV Tech,, Current± and Solar Power Portal.

In Volume 18’s cover feature, bifacial PV modules go under the spotlight. Two faces of a solar panel can obviously generate more power than one, but how bankable is the technology, who is using it already and where do we expect to see it take off first? Our comprehensive look will give you many of the answers.

Floating PV technology also makes a welcome return, with a contributed article from DNV GL which takes an overview of design considerations for this exciting new segment. Other topics covered include a look at the future of subsidy-free solar in Europe, how policy changes are affecting Japan’s market, as well as analysis of developments in regional markets from Turkey to Mexico.

Elsewhere, all of our regular features return, including the Product Reviews section and a review of the past three months’ news from PV Tech and Not forgetting also that’ own section of the journal, Storage & Smart Power returns, this time with an in-depth analysis of how solar-plus-storage is taking gas peaker plants out of service and a technical paper from Highview Power, which is offering a novel liquid air energy storage (LAES) technology to global markets.
