Scientists from the Solar Energy Research Institute of Singapore has showed that combining bifacial panels and single-axis trackers is the best way to achieve the lowest levelized cost of energy in solar power projects.
O custo da geração de energia solar foi reduzido o suficiente para ameaçar as frotas de energia térmica na capital mundial de carvão, China e instalações de combustíveis fósseis nos Emirados Árabes Unidos.
Solar competitiveness – understood as the gap between average spot market prices and lower PV LCOEs – was most pronounced in high-irradiation Spain and Italy, followed by the UK, France, Germany and Finland.
PV cheaper than spot market electricity across Europe. The levelized cost of energy produced by large scale PV projects ranges from €24/MWh in southern Spain to €42/MWh in Finland.
The International Energy Agency has today released its much anticipated World Energy Outlook to 2040. The IEA imagines that installed solar PV capacity will overtake that of all other forms of energy apart from gas by 2040.
A combinação de armazenamento de energia, redes inteligentes, geração distribuída e veículos elétricos irão transformar o setor elétrico, redesenhando o papel dos geradores, traders e consumidores.
