Bifacial solar panels: The future of the solar industry?

Bifacial solar panels have been on a hype for a while in the PV industry. Let’s have a look at this technology and its positive and negative aspects.


India introduces the first solar-powered village

Modhera is a village situated in the Mehsana district of Gujarat, a state along the Western coast of India known for its large-scale solar plants. The town is also the site of the famous Sun Temple, a beautiful Hindu temple dedicated to the solar deity Surya.


RE+ 2022: Possibilities and challenges of the IRA

RE+ (formerly SPI) conference was an exceptional experience given the 3-year gap that took place between the last two events. Since 2019 the solar landscape has changed significantly marked by new challenges and possibilities driven by technological innovations, the geopolitical climate and social justice movements.


Why rooftop solar is a key part of the clean energy transition

Renewable energy is growing exponentially, with solar leading the way. Back in 2010, just 18 gigawatts (GW) of solar were installed globally. This year alone, over 200 GW will be installed. It took a decade for the world to get to 1 terawatt (TW) of installed solar capacity. That’s expected to more than double in the next few years.


Unique usage of solar around the world

Renewables are on the rise all over the world, and the one in the spotlight is solar energy. From giant solar farms that house hundreds of thousands of panels, to smaller-scale personal installations that pop up on the roofs of residential buildings.
