    Ukraine Solar 64 MW small

    /29th April 2019, RENEWABLE MARKET WATCHTM/ The second-largest solar project in Ukraine has been opened at the end of March 2019 in the near vicinity of the Panovtsy village in Kamianets-Podilskyi district of Khmelnytskyi Oblast by ICU and VR Capital Group, reported the Renewable Market Watch™. The solar PV power plant is a joint-venture by ICU, independent asset management, private equity and investment advisory firm specialising in Central and Eastern Europe and VR Capital Group, an alternative asset manager specializing in global emerging markets. The plant has been commissioned by Podilskenergo and represents an investment in materials and construction of approximately US$55m. The plant's peak capacity is 63.8MW and the plant will generate approximately 68,200 MW/H of clean energy per year. The electricity generated will supply one-third of all the households in Kamianets-Podilskyi city and help decrease carbon emissions by 67,000 tonnes annually. The plant is one of the largest foreign direct investment projects in Ukraine. It will assist in the nation’s transition to renewable energy, including meeting Ukraine’s pledge to, by 2030, reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by at least 40 percent from 1990 levels following the 2015 Paris agreement.

  • A Paradigm Shift for Low and Medium Voltage Grids Regarding Variable Renewable Energy Generation

    Turkey Solar 1 Small

    /31st May 2017, IEA/ The greater uptake of distributed VRE shifts the historic balance of supply and demand in the electricity network and calls for a revision of the institutional arrangements guiding low- and medium-voltage grids. The rise of distributed generation assets – dominated by the rapid uptake of solar PV – translates into the growing complexity of power flows within the distribution grid. This provokes the need for innovative approaches to the planning and operation of low- and medium-voltage grids, with technical, economic and institutional implications. On the technical side, more dynamic and bi-directional flows of electricity (from lower to higher voltage levels and vice versa) require reinforced monitoring and control capabilities as well as upgrades to infrastructure. Moreover, planning standards need upgrading to manage the uptake of large shares of distributed resources. In this context, next-generation VRE technology – such as advanced inverters – can offer technical capabilities to support and sustain safe and reliable operations in local power grids, while also reducing energy losses in the overall power system.

  • Advances in Perovskite Research - Shooting stars of modern photovoltaics

    /11th July 2017, Sandra Henderson/, On their quest to better understand and thus be able to optimize perovskite solar cells, researchers from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) in Germany have discovered in the perovskite layers strips of nanostructures with alternating directions of polarization that could serve as transport paths for charge carriers. “Perovskite solar cells are widely considered the shooting stars of modern photovoltaics,” says Dr Alexander Colsmann, head of KIT’s Organic Photovoltaics Group, adding that their underlying working principles are not yet well understood, however. Thus, the KIT team set out to investigate the material properties and working principles of organometal halide — or more specifically, methylammonium lead iodide (MAPbI3) — perovskite thin-films.

  • Albania to Install its First Floating Solar Photovoltaic Power Plants

  • Challenges about Renewable Energy Deployment in MENA Countries

    /11th December 2016, RENEWABLE MARKET WATCHTM/, The MENA region is blessed with all the natural resources necessary for a vibrant renewable energy sector: Lots of sunshine, strong winds and, in a few places, powerful rivers. According to World Bank estimates, the region receives between 22 percent and 26 percent of all solar energy striking the earth. This translates to a potential for solar energy per square kilometre per year equivalent to the energy generated from 1 to 2 million barrels of oil. MENA’s solar potential is considered to be exponentially higher than that of all other renewable resources combined and is even thought to be enough to meet the current global demand for electricity.

  • China Grid Connection Concerns for Renewable Energy Generation

    /8th March 2017, IEA, RENEWABLE MARKET WATCHTM/, China has experienced a marked increase in electricity demand over the past decade, requiring rapid and large investments in the power sector. This has provided an opportunity for streamlining system integration with the expansion of overall electricity infrastructure. However, this opportunity has not been fully realised and investments have predominantly been in coal-fired capacity. The dominance of coal in the power sector has translated into growing concerns over local air pollution and CO2 emissions. To address these issues, China is ramping up the deployment of renewable energy resources and putting in place measures to effectively limit increases in coal-fired capacity.

  • City of Innovation and Re-birth: Why the Largest Sustainable Energy Event is Coming to Berlin

    The Business Booster 2021 Renewable Market Watch small

    /BERLIN, October 18, 2021, 9:30 CET, EIT InnoEnergy, RENEWABLE MARKET WATCHTM/ Berlin is perhaps best known for the Berlin Wall, which physically divided the city between East and West Germany for 28 years, finally coming down in late 1989. Since German reunification in 1990, the decades that followed have been defined by re-building and innovating. Of course when we announced Berlin as the location of The Business Booster 2021 we had no way of knowing that the world, and the economy along with it, would come to a screeching halt with the corona virus. However as TBB 2021 will now serve as the meeting place for innovators and industry for the first time in many months, we could not be headed to a better and more symbolic place for the re-building of Europe’s economy through innovation and sustainability. 

  • Conference on the G20 Compact with Africa 2023 in Berlin, Germany

    compact with africa small

    /BERLIN, November 20, 2023, 9:00 CET, RENEWABLE MARKET WATCHTM/ Launched under the German G20 Presidency in 2017, the G20 Compact with Africa (CwA) has established itself as the key format for dialogue and cooperation between reform-oriented African countries, G20 partners and beyond. Backed by continued support from G20 Leaders and International Organisations, the Compact is firmly anchored in the G20 Finance Track with the Africa Advisory Group under South African-German Co-Chairmanship as its steering body. The CwA contributes to attracting increased private investment in the Compact countries through substantial improvements in the macro, business and financing frameworks. Recent data show that CwA countries, being more open to trade and foreign direct investments, have managed to disproportionally benefit from the postpandemic economic recovery. The recent admission of the Democratic Republic of the Congo and growing interest from additional African partners to join the CwA are further proof of success of this flagship initiative.
