Solar modules: The latest in technologies and applications

The evolution of solar technology in India isn’t solely focused on technical advancements but also on making solar energy more affordable and accessible to a wider demographic.

The practicality of a 100% renewable energy system

The biggest question for the transition from the conventional practice of electricity generation to 100% eco-clean renewable energy resources is, can we maintain the electricity grid stable every minute of every day? The answer is clearly YES, and it is practical.

Red Sea tensions set to drive up solar module prices

The costs of transporting a container from China to Rotterdam have already almost tripled due to ongoing tensions in the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden. Houthi militants have been attacking merchant ships there for weeks, preventing them from entering the Red Sea and transiting through the Suez Canal.

Solar wafer prices stabilize with potential for future price hike

In a new weekly update for pv magazine, OPIS, a Dow Jones company, provides a quick look at the main price trends in the global PV industry.

Solar energy’s vital role in climate change mitigation

With solar taking a more significant portion of the energy and power mix, climate change can be significantly mitigated. Coal, for instance, is one of the dirtiest fuels, but makes up 70% of India’s power generation.


Make PV modules as cheap as possible, but not cheaper

In a new monthly column for pv magazine, the International Solar Energy Society (ISES) explains how reducing glass thickness in PV modules may fracture the solar industry, impacting PV module and PV tracker suppliers, engineering, product and construction companies, and PV plant owners.


China solar cell prices decline on sluggish downstream demand

In a new weekly update for pv magazine, OPIS, a Dow Jones company, provides a quick look at the main price trends in the global PV industry.

Major trends in the Indian solar PV sector

The Indian solar PV sector is experiencing transformative trends, driven by a combination of technological advancements, government support, and a growing awareness of the need for sustainable energy sources. The rapid expansion of solar capacity, coupled with innovations such as floating solar farms and green hydrogen production, paints a promising picture for the future of renewable energy in India.

A look back at solar in 2023

The Indian government has demonstrated a robust commitment to advancing solar energy by implementing various strategic initiatives.

Competition heats up

Oversupply is hitting some solar manufacturers hard but grid constraints and labor shortages are unlikely to hold the solar industry back in 2024.
