Report: Solar’s supply chain disaster threatens 56% of global utility projects in 2022

Report: Solar’s supply chain disaster threatens 56% of global utility projects in 2022

The report found 56% of projects -- or 90 GW of solar capacity -- are threatened by commodity price inflation and supply chain bottlenecks.
With or without subsidies, wind and solar are still cost-competitive, report says

With or without subsidies, wind and solar are still cost-competitive, report says

Even in the absence of government subsidies, certain renewable energy technologies remain cost-competitive with conventional generation technologies like gas peaking, nuclear, coal, and gas combined-cycle, according to a new report.
The next frontier of electric power will maximize renewable energy and storage

The next frontier of electric power will maximize renewable energy and storage

The next frontier goes beyond the shift from fossil fuels to renewables and moves toward different power resources working together.
Joint venture targets ‘vast potential’ of U.S. floating offshore wind market

Joint venture targets ‘vast potential’ of U.S. floating offshore wind market

A joint venture between global energy giant TotalEnergies and Simply Blue Group, a developer of floating offshore wind projects, aims to capitalize on the "vast potential" of floating offshore wind projects in the U.S.
Long waits to connect to Xcel’s grid are stalling Minnesota solar projects

Long waits to connect to Xcel’s grid are stalling Minnesota solar projects

Xcel told one customer they would need to wait 15 years to connect their solar system to its electric grid. The utility says it’s working to improve its process, but some in the industry say legislation or an investigation is needed to fix the problems.
Argentina Eyes Slower Renewable Growth as Infrastructure Lags

Argentina Eyes Slower Renewable Growth as Infrastructure Lags

Argentina’s next renewable power auction will be half the size of last year’s because of an infrastructure bottleneck slowing down the ability to add capacity.
Asia Report: Revisiting Japan’s Solar Demand, and Nuclear Comeback

Asia Report: Revisiting Japan’s Solar Demand, and Nuclear Comeback

Japan's solar market continues to race ahead: domestic solar demand is surging, to the point where it's bottlenecked behind expectations. And what's that sound of tiny footsteps approaching?
CoreFlow to introduce wafer singulation system for crystalline PV industry

CoreFlow to introduce wafer singulation system for crystalline PV industry

September 10, 2009 -CoreFlow says its new SingFlow wafer singulation system for crystalline PV applications, being debuted later this month, solves a bottleneck in one of the critical steps in the crystalline PV manufacturing process.
Battery Tech Remains the Solar Bottleneck

Battery Tech Remains the Solar Bottleneck

One of the biggest problems in solar energy remains the state of battery technology. That’s why battery technology is such a big focus with ARPA-E, the Department of Energy’s energy research program. Envia Systems and 24M were both winners in the latest round of grants, which aim to spur additional private sector investment. IBM is hot enough on the market […]
German government report finds significantly less conventional generation needed for a stable grid

German government report finds significantly less conventional generation needed for a stable grid

A new report published by the German Federal Network Agency “Bundesnetzagentur” examines periods of negative electricity prices from 2016 to 2018. Negative electricity prices occur when too much power is being fed into the grid and operators of power plants pay for electricity to be taken from them. The report revealed that during periods of negative electricity prices between 2016-2018, 18-26 […]
