Solarization of the OL Vallée Project with Reservoir Sun and ENGIE

The solarization of the OL Valley Project is entrusted this Friday, January 8, 2021 to the company ReservoirSun. The objective of this partnership is to produce clean electricity to supply part of the OL Group’s facilities. Here, solar self-consumption is at the heart of the project.

Solarization of the OL Vallée Project an infrastructure related to sports

A large-scale solar power plant

The solarization of certain buildings is entrusted to Reservoir Sun, a specialist in solar electric self-consumption, resulting from an alliance between ENGIE and Yellow Green. With this project, the group affirms its commitment to sustainable development.

The ambition of this new pole is to offer facilities for sports and leisure activities. Installed on a 50-hectare site, it should welcome several million visitors per year by 2024. In addition, OL Vallée will include facilities for the Olympique Lyonnais team and a training center created by Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.

The implementation of different photovoltaic solutions

Photovoltaic panels will be installed on the roof of two infrastructures. The locations concerned are the Olympique Lyonnais training center and the future Arena dedicated to the organization of sports and cultural events. In addition, a solar roof will be built on the future sports complex dedicated to high-level tennis.

The partnership also includes the solarization of the Groupama Stadium parking lots. On the one hand, they will be covered by solar shades. In addition, charging stations for electric vehicles will be installed.

The OL Valley Project will enable decarbonized energy production

The solar devices will have an installed capacity of approximately 10 MW.

The area covered by the photovoltaic installations will be 50,000 m², which represents 7 soccer fields. In fact, the production of electricity will correspond to the equivalent of the annual energy consumption of 2500 homes.

Solar self-consumption: the challenge of the project

The solar energy generated will meet part of the needs of the Groupama Stadium and the Arena. A project made possible by the self-consumption of solar energy, the flagship technology of the company Reservoir Sun. In the long run, it is estimated that this will save 164 tons of CO² per year.

In short, this partnership honors the use of clean energy in the sports and event industry. Currently, building new infrastructures that take into account the climate emergency seems essential. In this sense, we can hope that this project will encourage other companies to commit to renewable energy.

Solar: REC Silicon Partners with Ferroglobe

REC Silicon and Ferroglobe announce a Memorandum of Understanding between them. The agreement establishes a supply chain to produce solar energy in the United States. Also, the Hanwha Group's investment and eventual adoption of the MSEL is driving the expansion of U.S. polycrystalline and metallurgical silicon production. An agreement to create a supply chain for solar energy in the United States REC Silicon and Ferroglobe today announced a memorandum of understanding committing the companies to negotiate a raw material supply agreement and establish a fully traceable, low-carbon U.S. solar supply chain. Impetus to create a supply chain A recent investment by Hanwha Group in REC Silicon, in collaboration with Hanwha's subsidiary Qcells, has prompted REC to expand its long-standing relationship with Ferroglobe. It also prompted plans to immediately develop an end-to-end U.S. solar supply chain from raw silicon, polysilicon, and finally fully assembled modules. The impact of such an investment would extend from Washington State to Georgia, West Virginia and beyond. Passage of Senator Jon Ossoff's Solar Energy Manufacturing for America Act as part of a broad clean energy incentive program would make such plans immediately possible. As a leading producer of high-purity electronics and solar-grade polysilicon with assets in...

IEA projections: China as a behemoth and records expected for solar

In May 2022, the International Energy Agency (IEA) published its projections for renewable electricity in a report. First, she looks back at the evolution of energy capacities after a year 2020 punctuated by the Covid_19 crisis. For example, in 2021, several geographic areas stood out. A year 2021 for the post-Covid recovery In this assessment, we could mention the efforts made by China. The latter accounted for 46% of the world's renewable capacity additions last year. They show a year-on-year decline (2%), which should be qualified in view of the trend observed in 2020 (+52.6%). With a certain gap, the European Union and the United States close the podium in addition of GW in 2021. First of all, the Europeans surpassed their "all-time record of 2011 "with 47 GW and observe a good year-on-year slide, the best on the podium. The United States, on the other hand, is experiencing stability in its additional quantity development between 2020 and 2021. Overall, the net addition of renewable electricity capacity exceeds the IEA's initial forecast of 5 GW. However, while photovoltaics remains the preferred sector, it is slightly below projections. The good results of wind, hydroelectric and biomass make up the difference. IEA...


Portugal: New Floating Solar Park

Two tugboats moved a vast array of 12,000 solar panels, the size of four soccer fields, to their mooring on the Alqueva reservoir in Portugal. The goal is to put Europe's largest floating solar park into operation in July. Portugal to commission Europe's largest floating solar farm The project is part of Portugal's plan to reduce dependence on imported fossil fuels, the price of which has soared since Russia invaded Ukraine. The facility is being built by the country's main power company, Energias de Portugal (EDP), on the largest man-made lake in Western Europe. Portugal is accelerating its transition to renewable energy. Moreover, the country benefits from long hours of sunshine and strong Atlantic winds. However, the country of the Iberian Peninsula uses practically no Russian hydrocarbons. Nevertheless, its gas-fired power plants are still under pressure from rising fuel prices. Miguel Patena, director of the EDP Group, says that the electricity produced by the floating park would cost a third of that produced by a gas-fired plant. Furthermore, he adds that: "This project is the largest floating solar park on a hydroelectric dam in Europe, so it's a very good reference." The panels installed on the Alqueva reservoir would produce...

Jackery launches a new solar generator

Jackery is a leader in innovative portable energy and outdoor green power solutions. The company will announce the launch of its most powerful solar generator to date at Jackery Day 2022 on May 12. This will allow more campers, RVers and outdoor enthusiasts to enjoy the great outdoors this summer. Jackery and his generator The firm has long been a supplier of outdoor solar energy products. These provide stand-alone power on the go or can be used as a backup home generator. The company has been manufacturing solar panels and portable power stations for over a decade. The company now combines these two elements into one portable energy: the solar generator. The first of its kind, Jackery's solar generator is a bundled solar solution that closely combines portability and solar power. Thus, it converts the solar energy captured by the solar panels into electrical energy. Then she stores it in a portable power station for later use. According to the company, this access to clean, on-demand energy gives people the tools they need to enhance their outdoor experience and "live the outdoors." Innovative technology Jackery unveiled the original SolarPeak technology alongside the Solarsaga series of solar panels. This innovation is...
