Yezin Taha, Founder and CEO of Nevados Engineering, on how solar tracking technology can help eradicate the still common practice of levelling sites prior to installing solar panels – and thus avoid the problems, environmental impact and cost associated with site grading. This is an executive summery of a recent white paper by Nevados.

Antarctica is one of the harshest and most inhospitable environments for human activities due to its extreme climate. Traditionally, research stations in Antarctica were powered by fossil fuels. The comparably simple requirement of supplying a research station with electricity and heat in most other parts of the world can become much more challenging in Antarctica. The picture can be quite different when using solar power, as is the case at Belgium’s Princess Elisabeth Antarctica Research Station in the continent’s Queen Maud Land. PV Tech Power’s Simon Yuen talks to Slovenian solar company Bisol and the International Polar Foundation about features of renewable energy production at the research station which was established in 2009.

Spanish multinational electric utility giant Iberdrola has created something not only unique to Spain, but also to the wider European continent: Europe’s largest solar PV plant. Situated in the central-western region of Extremadura, the ‘Francisco Pizarro’ project, named after the renowned Spanish conquistador, has a generation capacity of 590MWp and came into operation in August 2022. The plant has nearly 1.5 million PV modules installed.
