LONGi breaks a new record


LONGi’s new heterojunction photovoltaic cell has achieved a power conversion efficiency of 26.5%. Thus, it breaks a new record. This feat was achieved on full size M6 (274.4 cm²) single crystal silicon wafers. The record was validated by the Institute for Solar Energy Research in Hamelin, Germany.

LONGi sets a string of records

The company welcomed this new achievement in a statement. She states:

“The company continues to lead the industry, with its speed of innovation and high-efficiency photovoltaics products contributing significantly to the global energy transition.”

Last October, LONGi had already broken the world record for photovoltaic cell efficiency. It achieved a cell efficiency HJT 25.82%. Then by 26.3% just a few days ago.

A series of records followed. LONGi achieved 25.47% efficiency for a P-type cell in March and 25.19% for its TOPCon P-type solar cell in July 2021. In June 2021, it recorded an efficiency score of 25.21% for a TOPCon type n device.

It also achieved an efficiency of 26.3% for its N-type HJT cell.

Tata Power Solar inaugurates a Floating Solar project

Tata Power Solar, a wholly owned subsidiary of Tata Power, has just accomplished a remarkable feat in India. In fact, it has just commissioned the largest floating solar power project in the country. Despite the technical difficulties, the company was able to deliver the project on time, proving its commitment to the energy transition. Tata Power Solar achieves a technical feat Tata Power Solar inaugurates India's largest floating solar power project. The latter is located on a body of water of about 141 hectares in the backwaters of Kayamkulam, in Kerala. In addition, this project has an installed capacity of 101.6MWp. This project is the first of the floating solar photovoltaic power plants (FSPV) with a power purchase agreement. In addition, it has obtained a commercial operation date (CoD) certification designating it as complete and operational. Tata Power Solar has built a platform on the water on which the entire solar power plant floats. 134 cast pile foundations, drilled to a depth of 20 meters, anchor the entire project to the waterbed. This supports the central monitoring and control stations and the 33/220 kilovolt distribution substation. The entire array includes floats and solar panel modules. Tata Power Solar had to...

Voltalia develops a solar complex in Brazil

After having already developed two large complexes in Brazil, namely Serra Branca and Canudos, the Voltalia Group is developing the Arinos project. Arinos is a new solar complex with a potential of 1.5 GW, this time located in the southeast of Brazil. The positive impact of the project on the Brazilian environment Already, the fact of developing large complexes allows the mutualization of infrastructures, connection networks and maintenance. As with each of the complexes developed in Brazil, Voltalia always ensures that the project has a positive impact on the environment and on the surrounding communities. With the Arinos complex, Voltalia ensures the development for its own account but also for third parties. In this respect, the company has signed strategic partnerships, notably with CTG Brazil, a reference in the Brazilian market. Similarly, Voltalia will be able to sell a significant portion of the solar sites in the complex upon approval. Provided, of course, that the development phase of each site is completed. In addition, the teams follow and intervene in each stage of the development of the projects. From assessing the potential and securing the best sites, to launching construction. A construction that can be realized only after obtaining the...

Infiniti Energy Raises $117 Million to Support Solar

U.S.-based Infiniti Energy closes $117 million in solar financing. To be exact, the company has raised $87 million. The $30 million is from a construction credit. New solar projects for Infiniti Energy In fact, the funding will support 34 MW of commercial and industrial solar projects located in New Jersey. The portfolio consists of power purchase agreements for all sites. As such, Infiniti Energy will build, own and operate all sites working with multiple solar energy providers. A partnership with Upper Bay Infrastructure Partners This closing follows a partnership formed in 2021 with Upper Bay Infrastructure Partners. As such, Upper Bay is investing in Infiniti Energy with a focus on solar asset development and acquisition. According to its CEO, Michael Kushner: "The Infiniti Energy team is excited about the opportunity this financing represents. In addition, it is an important step in expanding the solar portfolio held by Infiniti Energy while making a positive impact on our customers, the environment and our investors." Before adding: "Innovation and customer service are in our company's DNA. So, working with financial partners who help us meet market and customer needs is a huge asset in growing our solar offering." Construction of the 34 MW...

France will install less Solar Capacities

France, already behind on its solar energy deployment targets, is expected to install even fewer new sites this year than last, due in part to inflation, and more recurrent regulatory blockages, industry representatives said Tuesday. The sector "hopes to reach" two gigawatts of new solar capacity in 2022, against 2.8 GW last year, according to the president of the union Enerplan Daniel Bour. "This year, as it stands, we're going to do less than last year," says Bour, for whom "if we do 2 GW this year, it will be good." There are approximately 4GW of projects in the sector with connection permits. However, rising material costs are delaying construction. These are no longer profitable in view of the electricity purchase rates set before the general price hike. The sector is waiting for new measures The sector has requested emergency measures from the State, and is also waiting for a bill on "accelerating renewables" promised for the end of July by the government, before the legislative elections. In particular, the industrialists would like to see solar energy acquire the status of "major public interest" (and no longer "collective interest"). They require different impact studies for different terrains. In addition, they...
