The new edition of PV Tech Power – PV Tech Power 24 – is now available to download from the PV Tech Store.
Volume 24 of the journal features insight into a broad array of the downstream industry’s hottest trends and topics as it approaches a critical juncture. The cover feature of this edition explores the introduction of 550W+ panels and the technologies driving them as they look poised to shake up utility-scale solar deployment.
But, as you’ll read, some hurdles still stand in the way and the industry will have to collaborate to overcome them.
We also take a comprehensive look at Europe in our Market Watch section of the journal, where the continents COVID economic recovery stimulus and a host of national decarbonisation strategies look set to give Europe another moment in the sun.
Other features in this issue include:
- Behind the rise of US utility-driven solar

The business of solar is changing, as the industry scales up, technology, IT and new players to the market will add complexity. This sparks a host of opportunities such as co-location of solar and storage and the rise of unsubsidised solar projects as well as challenges which will question the very business model of European solar asset owners. Solar Finance & Investment Europe is the meeting place for institutional investors, sovereign wealth funds, solar, wind and storage funds and large energy buyers to do business.
