The British carmaker, which is launching its electric SUV early next month in India, plans to set up a battery assembly plant in two years for its electric car models.
Dhaka has heeded complaints about Indian manufacturers allegedly dumping sub-standard PV products over the border and issued a requirement for modules, inverters, charge controllers and batteries to attain IEC electrical standards.
The Chinese company plans to roll out 2 GW of inverters annually from its manufacturing unit which will have two assembly lines—of 1 GW each—for central and string inverters.
A new series of tweaks by the Solar Energy Corporation of India appear to have paid off, as the organization’s ambitious manufacturing-linked 7 GW solar tender has reportedly ended up oversubscribed by 1 GW.
A U.S. research group has developed a metal-carbon-nanotube composite – MetZilla – which can be embedded in commercial, screen-printable silver pastes and is said to reduce the formation of hotspots in solar modules and to prolong panel lifespan. The composite metal contacts are also ‘self-healing’ as they are able to regain electrical continuity after cycles of complete electrical failure caused by extreme strain.
Spanish researchers have discovered a material said to offer radiative cooling and self-cleaning of devices which undergo critical heating during operation, such as PV panels. The thermal emitter enabled the scientists to lower the daytime temperature of silicon wafers by 14 degrees Celsius.
The benefits of heterojunction technology are well known. But as the first modules come onto the market from REC Group’s new HJT lines, the competitive landscape is crowded, but not without opportunity.
The recycling market will experience a tenfold expansion between last year and 2030, driven by EV battery usage and portable electronics. Retrieving valuable metals and minerals is becoming a high priority and several dozen companies are already in position for the first big wave of end-of-life batteries.
The company aims to emerge as a global leader in battery pack manufacturing with plans to set up a manufacturing unit in India in 2020-21 and the USA.
