We take a sneak peek at some of the new and exciting findings expected to be revealed in the ‘2020 PV Module Reliability Scorecard’ that is undertaken each year by PV Evolution Labs (PVEL). As with last year’s edition, this Scorecard is published in partnership with DNV GL.
DNV GL has launched a new online tool, Solar Resource Compass, that aggregates solar irradiance from many leading data providers to help users make more informed decisions about the data available and the variance between data sources to help users avoid selecting the wrong data for a solar project. It also estimates loss factors for dust soiling and snow accumulation based on historical precipitation for any project site in the United States.
DNV GL has developed software for modelling, design and analysis of solar photovoltaic (PV) plants that can accurately and efficiently handle the demands of layouts in increasingly complex terrain. ‘SolarFarmer’ software offers a new and efficient ways to explore and optimize PV project development.
Leading ‘Solar Module Super League’ (SMSL) member, JinkoSolar has been ranked as a ‘Top Performer’ in the annual PVEL ‘PV Module Reliability Scorecard’ 2019 report, for the fifth consecutive year in two of the four testing regimes.
DNV GL says solar industry most advanced energy sector to drive digital transformation, Canadian Solar secures US$50 million term loan from Credit Suisse, Energix plans US$120 million module deal with First Solar.
Leading up to the fourth PV CellTech conference in Penang on 12-13 March 2019, we continue our series of interviews with leading PV industry stakeholders from across the entire value-chain, connected by the same common goal of wanting to know how PV technology will advance over the next 12-18 months.
The solar industry gets to grips with the bewildering array of new module technologies at the second edition of the PV ModuleTech event in Penang, Malaysia. The conference raised a huge number of questions such as how to evaluate bifacial technology and whether it might rise faster than predicted, how long p-type multicrystalline has left in the running and the perennial issue of quality, to name a few.
Leading ‘Silicon Module Super League’ (SMSL) member JinkoSolar has acknowledged its recognition as a ‘Top Performer’ in DNV GL's 2018 PV Module Reliability Scorecard results, which were announced at SNEC in China in May.
Advisory and certification house DNV GL is supporting Turkish plans to source 30% of total electricity generated in the country from renewable sources, carrying out a feasibility study for combinations of solar PV and energy storage.
