This issue of PV Tech Power explores how the solar industry can capitalise on the momentum from December’s Paris climate agreement, and the policy and finance levers it must pull to cement its place as a major global energy source. We also feature a series of articles focusing on Japan, whose future growth as a solar end market looks less certain than it has in recent years as it encounters political headwinds. We also feature the usual in-depth offering of technical briefings, with module handling, large-scale storage deployment and PV forecasting among the key themes in this edition.
