The latest edition of PV Tech Power, volume 28, is now available to download, as we take a forensic look at the solar supply chain.

The cover story of PV Tech Power volume 28 explores supply chain volatility in great depth, explaining precisely what has caused the price of materials, components and logistics to soar in 2021, detailing the best mitigation strategies and analysing regulatory developments which could cause further disruption to module supply.

PV Tech Research’s Finlay Colville also takes a deep dive into the learnings from the first two years of our Bankability Ratings, while this volume’s Storage & Smart Power section includes an exclusive interview with Maria Skyllas Kazacos, one of the investors of the vanadium flow battery.
