Intersolar Europe returns after a notably buoyant edition last year. Since then the continent has seen solar winning out in German tenders, France continue its own deployment schedule and both Spain and Portugal building up an impressive pipeline. Our correspondent in Shanghai, Carrie Xiao, provides an update on China’s latest policy reorganisation. Our Storage & Smart Power section, produced with our colleagues from Energy-Storage.News, includes a superb read on the impact of a recent spate of M&A activity. Andy Colthorpe speaks to Sonnen, Younicos and Greensmith about life under the ownership of Shell, Aggreko and Wartsilla respectively. Testing and certification has received a lot of attention in the solar sector but investors must be as rigorous when investing in energy storage. DNV GL provides some pointers on the criteria that should be assessed before choosing a partner.
