Singapore is battling the need to decarbonise without the land availability to establish sufficient large-scale renewables plants. With the government looking to import electricity from overseas, Jules Scully looks at prospective power import projects and the consortiums behind them.
Home to some of the world’s highest solar irradiation levels and urgently in need of homegrown energy resources, Chile has established itself as a key PV market in Latin America. Jonathan Touriño Jacobo looks at that rise and asks what we can expect to see next for Chile.
The US solar market was widely expected to thrive this year, but various policy headwinds have destabilised the module procurement market and created uncertainty to such an extent installations stalled. Liam Stoker reflects on events of the last 12 months.
Community solar in the US is projected to grow substantially over the next decade and represents a means of expanding access to underserved communities who are being left out of the energy transition. Sean Rai-Roche explores the drivers of community solar and what obstacles need to be overcome to support its rollout.
The proliferation of solar requires PV projects to adapt to their grid surroundings, which increasingly entails connecting alongside adjacent technologies, be it energy storage, other renewables or green hydrogen. Amid the growing threat of curtailment, Jules Scully looks at the rise of the ‘solar-plus’ market and the financial models underpinning it.
The rising demand for lithium-ion batteries far outstrips the available supply, even as investments into materials extraction and manufacturing ramp up like never before. But what does the situation really look like and when will it ease up? Andy Colthorpe investigates.
