Growth in renewables and corresponding market pricing is the key driver for the commercialisation and global adoption for vanadium flow batteries (VFBs) and an important reason why we will see further growth for this technology over the years to come, says Ed Porter of Invinity Energy Systems.
PVTP Paper
PV Tech Power Papers, Storage & Smart Power
What are the best ways to match up long-duration energy storage technologies to applications and revenues? And what is ‘longer-duration’ storage and when will we need it? Florian Mayr and Dr Fabio Oldenburg at Apricum - The Cleantech Advisory offer some perspectives.

Companies are purchasing solar, wind, and other forms of renewable energy more than ever before. The power purchase agreement (PPA) market in Europe has grown to a cumulative capacity of over 12GW, with a record 4GW signed in 2020. Corporate climate commitments are opening doors for investment in renewable energy, and continued price declines are convincing companies to sign new contracts. Is the European market ready to fulfil its potential? By Dr. Mercè Labordena, senior policy advisor at SolarPower Europe, and Milena Koot, communications advisor at SolarPower Europe.

The adoption of floating solar is accelerating the world over, and Asia has taken a leading position in the adoption of FPV. With the aid of subsidy support, technological advances and ever-growing comfort with the technology class, FPV is being taken to ever newer and more hard-to-reach bodies of water.

Plant Performance, PV Tech Power Papers
Given the significant wealth of data available from an energy generation asset today, it’s perhaps easy to overlook the availability and value from around the asset as well. Katie Applebaum, business development manager at Clir Renewables, explains why this ‘data disarray’ is preventing solar assets from reaching their full potential.
PVTP Paper
Plant Performance, PV Tech Power Papers
As solar continues to proliferate and the very first large-scale arrays exceed 10 years of operational life, the value of operations and maintenance services is forecast to skyrocket. But as Edith Hancock writes, industry pressures such as new technologies and consolidation, are reshaping the industry.
PVTP Paper
Plant Performance, PV Tech Power Papers
Bifaciality and trackers have become almost synonymous with modern plant design, but modelling gains in a real-world environment is notoriously difficult. Liam Stoker reports from a panel at the Solar Finance & Investment Europe conference which explored how new technologies are driving yield upside.
PVTP Paper
PV Tech Power Papers, System Integration
With green hydrogen from renewables at the core of a number of decarbonisation strategies globally, the first large-scale projects face a number of challenges integrating into the energy system. Molly Lempriere explores the barriers to developing large-scale green hydrogen, the technologies easing interaction and the benefits of hydrogen for grid balancing and storage.

Market Watch, PV Tech Power Papers
After a challenging year, India’s solar sector stands primed for something of a rebound. But a host of familiar issues, from the perilous state of DISCOMs to regulatory uncertainty, run the risk of stymying future growth. Vinay Rustagi, managing director at consultancy Bridge to India, talks to PV Tech Power about the future prospects for Indian solar.

Vietnam experienced enormous growth in solar deployments in 2020, with as much as 9GW being installed as the successful FIT policy drew to a close. Edgar Gunther explores how that policy came to be so successful, and what the future holds for solar PV in Vietnam.
PVTP Paper
Market Watch, PV Tech Power Papers
Asia is expected to dominate floating solar’s growth over the next four years with up to 70% of global installations of floating PV to take place in the continent. But what are the key drivers behind this surging demand, and what can other continents learn from it? Jules Scully investigates.
