Scientists in Russia have analyzed the most important technological advances achieved for solar water pumps over the past decades and have indicated the roadmap that future research should follow to expand their use and application.
The pan-Asian renewable energy development platform, owned by Australian investment bank Macquarie’s Green Investment Group (GIG), has acquired a majority stake in Hyderabad-based commercial solar developer Vibrant Energy.
The solar installation in India is making a slower-than-expected recovery as Covid-related disruption continues to hurt construction progress. Safeguard duty extension and module price increase have added to the pain.

The Climate Group has reported that just 33 members of its global EP100 initiative avoided carbon dioxide emission by one billion metric tonnes purely through energy efficiency measures. Of this, 360 million metric tonnes—comparable to taking 77 million cars off the road for a year—was avoided in the last year alone.
With the International Energy Agency publishing its latest five-year clean energy forecast today, pv magazine takes a look at the solar content of the 162-page document.
Initially, solar plants shall be set up at airports in Tamil Nadu and Rajasthan, which require a PV capacity of around 55 MW and 8 MW, respectively, to become 100% solar-powered.
