SECI tenders EPC work for 40 MW conventional solar+10 MW agrivoltaics in Tamil Nadu

Bidders have until March 1 to bid for setting up the cumulative grid-connected solar PV capacity—including 40 MW conventional ground-based and 10 MW agrivoltaics—in Cuddalore and Tiruvannamalai districts.

Establishing a solar module recycling system in India

Ankit Kapasi and Kishore Ganesan from SOFIES India are working on Solar Waste Action Plan (SWAP) project in India, which is looking to investigate both the technical and economic feasibility of a PV module recycling system in the country. The pilot has been funded by Signify Foundation and Doen Foundation. The team at Sofies is working closely with technology partner Poseidon Solar and has recently established the first PV recycling pilot plant in September 2020. The duo spoke to pv magazine about their plant’s techno-commercial feasibility and the Indian eco-system’s readiness for PV module recycling.
