Trina Solar has announced the launch of its high-efficiency bifacial module DUOMAX Twin, which generates power from both the front and back sides of the solar module and performs well even under weak light conditions. The front side receives direct sunlight while the back side receives reflected and scattered light. Compared with traditional single-sided modules, the DUOMAX Twin can deliver as much as 25% additional generating capacity. The company’s leadership in PERC cell technology has achieved several world records and total shipments of over 1 Gigawatt over the past years.

Russia: Abundance Of Renewables Can Fuel Growth; Quadruple Clean Energy By 2030

Russia can increase the share of renewables in its energy mix from roughly 3 percent today to more than 11 percent by 2030, according to new findings by IRENA. The growth in renewable energy use would represent nearly a fourfold increase in the share of renewables between 2014 and 2030. To implement the study’s recommendations, an annual investment of approximately USD 15 billion per year between 2015 and 2050 is required, but IRENA shows that the benefits can exceed costs when externalities related to human health and climate change are considered. According to current estimates Russia has the largest wind potential in the world.

Today, Every Fifth Utility Company In Germany Offers Photovoltaics To Households

The energy transition is changing the face of the energy market and its stakeholders. For utilities, this process also means a restructuring that will affect all areas. The energy transition involves products and services in the energy efficiency, mobility, electricity and heat sectors. It, therefore, creates numerous opportunities for utilities to grow by coming up with innovative solutions, but it also brings many risks. Customer relationships are changing. Simple power delivery is being replaced by more complex prosumer relationships. The portfolio of utility companies now consists of products such as photovoltaic installations and electrical storage systems, as well as new services in the mobility sector.

Morocco Rises: Starts Construction On The World’s Largest Solar Power Complex

In the presence of the Moroccan King, Mohammed VI, construction commenced on the country’s fourth power plant – NOORo IV – which will become the largest solar power complex in the world, providing electricity for 1.3 million people. After commissioning, at the beginning of 2018, the PV plant will enable annual savings of at least 56,000 tonnes in CO2 emissions. When all four power plants are combined, CO2 emissions will be reduced by around 800,000 tonnes every year. The Noor complex is scheduled to be completed by 2019 and supply a total of 580 MW of output power from three solar thermal energy plants and one photovoltaic plant.
