Positive sales figures thanks to antidumping measures, says Isofoton

first_imgPositive sales figures thanks to antidumping measures, says IsofotonSpanish solar cells and modules producer Isofoton has seen an increase in European orders for its modules since early August. The company has cited the antidumping measures as having boosted the sales figures. September 3, 2013 Shamsiah Ali Oettinger Manufacturing Markets Markets & Policy Share Isofoton has seen an increase in module orders in Europe since early August. The orders are especially strong from France, Italy and the U.K. With this increase, the debt-ridden company is able to cover its production capacity until the end of this year. The implementation of the antidumping measures in the EU-China trade case has helped the sales numbers according to the company. Ángel Luis Serrano, President of Isofoton, stated, “The antidumping measures are bringing about a rise in prices in the European market, and this has entailed a recovery in margins for the second half of 2013”. The acquisition of the Bureau Veritas European manufacturing quality certificate and the British BRE Global Mark certification for the company’s new polycrystalline module line have also helped. Isofoton now expects the antidumping measures to continue aiding the company in generating new orders in Europe. Nevertheless the future of the company is still dependent on its debt restructure and renegotiation as well as sale of its assets and resizing of the company. Isofoton filed for restructuring proceedings following a $96 million lawsuit by Hemlock in May this year.Popular content The Hydrogen Stream: 20 MW green hydrogen plant in Finland, two Australian projects move forward Sergio Matalucci 20 April 2021 pv-magazine.com Storegga, Shell and Harbour Energy want to set up a 20 MW blue hydrogen production facility in the U.K. Australia’s Origin Energy wants to build a hy… Enabling aluminum in batteries Mark Hutchins 27 April 2021 pv-magazine.com Scientists in South Korea and the UK demonstrated a new cathode material for an aluminum-ion battery, which achieved impressive results in both speci… ITRPV: Large formats are here to stay Mark Hutchins 29 April 2021 pv-magazine.com The 2021 edition of the International Technology Roadmap for Photovoltaics (ITRPV) was published today by German engineering association VDMA.

Australia’s first redeployable large-scale hybrid PV plant up and running in one week

first_imgAustralia’s first redeployable large-scale hybrid PV plant up and running in one weekConstruction group Laing O’Rourke has erected the first large-scale solar-diesel hybrid power plant in regional Queensland. The Australian Renewable Energy Agency describes the plant as a “versatile alternative to diesel powered generators.” March 24, 2015 pv magazine Installations Manufacturing Markets Markets & Policy Share Laing O’Rourke, Australia’s biggest privately owned construction company, has assembled the country’s biggest redeployable large-scale solar-diesel hybrid power plant in the state of Queensland.The Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) partnered with Laing O’Rourke by providing $410,000 in support for the feasibility and design work and a further $450,000 for the $1.4 million demonstration project.The 1 MW hybrid solar diesel plant includes 144 kWp of solar PV and is supplying power to a 350-bed accommodation village for a large construction project in Queensland. The system was delivered, unpacked and fully functional in one week, according to ARENA CEO Ivor Frischknecht.Frischknecht said the plant – understood to be the world’s first fully redeployable large-scale hybrid plant — was a clear demonstration of a versatile alternative to diesel powered generators.“The Laing O’Rourke solution is a real game-changer – it provides off-grid locations with a viable energy alternative to a portion of expensive, trucked-in diesel and overcomes the barriers and risks associated with permanent, fixed framed solar installations,” Frischknecht added.Popular content The Hydrogen Stream: 20 MW green hydrogen plant in Finland, two Australian projects move forward Sergio Matalucci 20 April 2021 pv-magazine.com Storegga, Shell and Harbour Energy want to set up a 20 MW blue hydrogen production facility in the U.K. Australia’s Origin Energy wants to build a hy… Enabling aluminum in batteries Mark Hutchins 27 April 2021 pv-magazine.com Scientists in South Korea and the UK demonstrated a new cathode material for an aluminum-ion battery, which achieved impressive results in both speci… ITRPV: Large formats are here to stay Mark Hutchins 29 April 2021 pv-magazine.com The 2021 edition of the International Technology Roadmap for Photovoltaics (ITRPV) was published today by German engineering association VDMA.

first_imgTurkey: JinkoSolar to supply 50 MW of PV panels to TegnatiaA joint venture between Turkey’s T Dinamik and Egnatia Group in Greece, Tegnatia has become a leading solar EPC service provider in Europe. May 18, 2015 Edgar Meza Installations Manufacturing Markets Markets & Policy Share JinkoSolar has agreed to supply 50 MW of solar PV panels to Tegnatia, one of Turkey’s leading renewable energy developers. According to the deal signed by the two companies, JinkoSolar will deliver the 50 MW of modules in several shipments bound for projects across Turkey. Tegnatia, which is as a joint venture between Turkey’s T Dinamik and Greece’s Egnatia Group, has become a leading solar EPC service provider in Europe. Greece’s Egnatia Group has more than 300 MW of solar installations in Greece, Romania, Bulgaria and the U.K. Frank Niendorf, JinkoSolar’s European sales director, said the deal made JinkoSolar the “leading module supplier” in Turkey and added that the group would identify and engage similarly strategic opportunities in the coming months as it seeks to increase its market share in the country. JinkoSolar’s latest agreement in Turkey follows increased activity abroad as well as at home. Last week the company signed a 1 GW module supply deal with China Minsheng New Energy (CMNE), a subsidiary of China Minsheng Investment Corp.

Chinese government attempts to shore up United PV share price

first_imgChinese government attempts to shore up United PV share priceState-owned investor pumps $710,000 into ailing Hong Kong developer. Shares stabilized at $0.13 this morning from year-high of $0.20 on June 2. July 10, 2015 Max Hall Finance Manufacturing Markets Markets & Policy Share With the share price of Chinese solar companies following the rest of the market by tanking, Hong Kong-based developer United Photovoltaics Group has had a shot in the arm from its major shareholder – a state-owned company. An update on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange yesterday (Thursday) revealed United PV‘s major shareholder, China Merchants New Energy Group Ltd, had boosted its shareholding by an additional 6,306,000 shares. China Merchants New Energy (CMNE) is a subsidiary of the state-owned China Merchants Group which, according to United PV’s website, has a 24.09 per cent holding in the developer. It is not clear whether that figure includes the new shareholding, acquired for an average price of HK$0.87 ($0.11) per share. If not updated, the new acquisition, would account for an additional 4.2 per cent of the company. Reasons for the expanded shareholding A statement on United PV’s website outlined the reasons for its state-sponsored benefactor’s move, stating: “CMNE is positive towards United PV’s future development and revenue growth, given its low price-earnings ratio, high margin of safety and strong cash position. “It is believed that the gradual growth environment of this listed company has given its shareholders a precious opportunity to raise their stakes for better returns. “Upon completion of the increase in shareholdings, CMNE might seek to further increase its stake in United PV through a number of ways going through the Hong Kong Exchanges and clearing limited.” United PV’s share price has mirrored the woes of the wider Chinese market this month, rallying HK$0.09 ($0.01) this morning to HK$0.99 ($0.13) from a 52-week-high of HK$1.57 ($0.20), on June 2.Popular content The Hydrogen Stream: 20 MW green hydrogen plant in Finland, two Australian projects move forward Sergio Matalucci 20 April 2021 pv-magazine.com Storegga, Shell and Harbour Energy want to set up a 20 MW blue hydrogen production facility in the U.K. Australia’s Origin Energy wants to build a hy… Enabling aluminum in batteries Mark Hutchins 27 April 2021 pv-magazine.com Scientists in South Korea and the UK demonstrated a new cathode material for an aluminum-ion battery, which achieved impressive results in both speci… ITRPV: Large formats are here to stay Mark Hutchins 29 April 2021 pv-magazine.com The 2021 edition of the International Technology Roadmap for Photovoltaics (ITRPV) was published today by German engineering association VDMA.

Japan edges closer to solar auction introduction

first_imgJapan edges closer to solar auction introductionCommittee of Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) concludes meeting discussing the introduction of an auction process for large-scale solar projects. System likely to begin in FY 2017. December 16, 2015 Ian Clover Installations Legal Manufacturing Markets Markets & Policy Share Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) has concluded another round of talks regarding the future of the nation’s solar sector, with the likelihood now growing that auctions for large-scale solar projects will be introduced by fiscal year (FY) 2017. A subcommittee of METI gathered in October to first discuss changes to Japan’s renewable incentives. This discussion focused on four key issues, most notably a revision of the current feed-in tariff (FIT) and the introduction of an auction tender process. A key concern for METI is to rein-in expenditure on the Japanese FIT, which has been wildly successful since its introduction in 2012. “The FIT program led to a rapid expansion of commercial solar and there has been a need for balance between different renewable sources,” read a draft proposal outlined by METI. The new proposal on the table outlines a procedure whereby solar power producers that can operate at the lowest cost will be selected to develop new large-scale solar project in Japan. Effectively, this means an auction tender process will be introduced, replacing the current regressive FIT and cherry-picking those clean energy developers who are able to secure grid connections. Japan’s grid has experienced a series of bottlenecks this year as a result of a sustained PV push in many regions. This new mechanism could help taper off the huge pipeline of currently approved projects in Japan, but may be unlikely to deliver an initial boost to installation rates, believes Izumi Kaizuka of RTS Corporation. “If the current pipeline of approved utility-scale projects is not canceled under the new auction approval scheme that METI is planning, then extra bidding would be unlikely to boost installations,” Kaizuka told pv magazine. A scheduled reduction of the FIT for the residential sector is also likely, Kaizuka added, rather than a complete cancellation of the mechanism. “To introduce a bidding process, METI first has to revise the FIT law,” she said. “METI will submit its proposal to the Diet in 2016 in order for the new auction system to begin in FY 2017. The details of the auction volume have not yet been decided, but we assume that the auction will apply only to large-scale projects.”Popular content The Hydrogen Stream: 20 MW green hydrogen plant in Finland, two Australian projects move forward Sergio Matalucci 20 April 2021 pv-magazine.com Storegga, Shell and Harbour Energy want to set up a 20 MW blue hydrogen production facility in the U.K. Australia’s Origin Energy wants to build a hy… Enabling aluminum in batteries Mark Hutchins 27 April 2021 pv-magazine.com Scientists in South Korea and the UK demonstrated a new cathode material for an aluminum-ion battery, which achieved impressive results in both speci… ITRPV: Large formats are here to stay Mark Hutchins 29 April 2021 pv-magazine.com The 2021 edition of the International Technology Roadmap for Photovoltaics (ITRPV) was published today by German engineering association VDMA.

Intevac receives multi-system order for implant systems used for c-Si cell manufacturing

first_imgIntevac receives multi-system order for implant systems used for c-Si cell manufacturingThe California-based equipment supplier received an order for two of its ENERGi implant systems for advanced solar cell manufacturing, from an unnamed solar cell manufacturer in China. May 26, 2016 Sam Pothecary Installations Markets Markets & Policy Technology Technology and R&D Share Intevac’s solar cell manufacturing equipment continues to generate industry interest, as it receives a significant order for two of its ENERGi ion implant systems. The technology is some of the less used in the manufacturing of PV cells, but the news of an order from a China-based cell producer could be a sign that more manufacturers are going to give it a go.Previous to this order, Intevac had only received two orders for its ion implant systems, now these two additional ENERGi systems are due to be shipped in the second half of 2016. The ENERGi system is designed specifically for c-Si solar cell manufacturing.“This new order for systems configured with our ion implantation source technology demonstrates continued and meaningful progress in our Thin-film Equipment growth strategy,” said Intevac president and CEO Wendell Blonigan. “Securing this order from a leading solar cell manufacturer in China validates the capability and value proposition of our implant technology for high-efficiency solar cell manufacturing.”This content is protected by copyright and may not be reused.

She is the Senior Content Producer across media brands including ESI Africa, Smart Energy International, Power Engineering International and Mining Review Africa. Generationcenter_img BRICS RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Eskom is concerned that some media reports have suggested that the disciplinary hearing of the company’s suspended group executive Matshela Koko has collapsed. The South African state-owned utility said today that “the Koko disciplinary hearing is being conducted in a fair and transparent manner.”Eskom’s Interim Chairperson, Zethembe Khoza, said: “Eskom wishes to unequivocally state that this disciplinary hearing is being conducted in a fair, professional, and transparent manner, with the media being granted permission to attend in a matter that would ordinarily be treated as an internal matter.”Khoza added that: “It is worth noting that the chairperson of the hearing, together with the evidence leaders from both parties, are competent and independent professionals who belong to highly regulated organisations that would take a dim view of any misconduct by anyone of their members.”The parastatal added in a statement: “It is regrettable that the events of 20 October 2017, where Eskom’s previous evidence leader was involved in an altercation with a journalist, have overshadowed the integrity of the disciplinary enquiry.“Eskom took immediate action and replaced the former evidence leader in order to protect the sanctity of the hearing and to maintain the independence and freedom of expression of the media as enshrined in the Constitution of our country.”Furthermore, Eskom notes with concern the allegations that have been made regarding the witnesses who have declined to testify in the proceedings.It is important to note that the current evidence leader was duly instructed to do all that was necessary to obtain the attendance of all the identified witnesses. Some witnesses have chosen to decline the request based on legal advice they received from their lawyers.“Eskom accordingly has had no option but to continue with the hearing in the absence of these witnesses and to close its case on 25 November 2017. Accordingly, Mr Koko will be testifying in his defense on 30 November 2017 at 09h00,” said Khoza.Eskom interim chairKhoza is currently being questioned for his alleged involvement in a bribe to close the current Eskom Inquiry.Earlier this week, the interim chair refuted claims that suggest he had instructed the then ordinary ANC MP Mr Bongani Bongo to offer parliamentary inquiry evidence leader Advocate Ntuthuzelo Vanara a bribe to collapse the investigation into the alleged capture of Eskom. Read more…According to Khoza, Eskom supported the parliamentary inquiry, adding that Eskom had previously written to the Portfolio Committee on Public Enterprises expressing its willingness to give evidence before the committee once the process got underway. Read more… UNDP China, CCIEE launch report to facilitate low-carbon developmentlast_img read more

He said the idea of identifying and rewarding world-class performance andproviding all participants with a confidential evaluation of their competitiveposition free of charge is therefore more meaningful and beneficial than everbefore. Hepointed out that: “As such the local manufacturing community can no longer shyaway from the pace of adoption of the 4IR technologies on shop floors,which has been dramatically increasing over the past three years.  BRICS Also read: SA manufacturers – look to the next gen AI to improve competitiveness The Factory of the Year award, a global annual competition that has been running for over 25 years, is recognised as the toughest benchmarking test for companies in the production arena. Meanwhile, Theo Sibiya, MD of A.T. Kearney Africa noted that: “TheFactory of the Year competition provides inspiration to manufacturers to raisetheir game and return the sector to its previous heights and beyond.” The competition has benchmarks and best practices from over 2,000 factories across all industries and over 30 countries. “This competition is important for the manufacturing sector because itraises the profile of our industry, said Rodseth, adding that “it is importantthat the broader public has a better understanding of what differentmanufacturing businesses entail, from the likes of a foundry dealing withmolten metals, to a high-tech facility managing the interface between peopleand artificial intelligence in a production process.” “Thoughthe South African sector in general has a relatively wide performance gap toclose, we have been very pleased to see that the top awardees in this countrycan withstand direct comparison with world class performance and standards onthe evaluated dimensions.” Low carbon, solar future could increase jobs in the future – SAPVIA After thorough evaluation of the nominees for the Factory of the Year (FotY) award, the results are out:center_img The future manufacturing “Morethan ever, companies have to find the right balance in their manufacturingfootprint and global value chain design. To successfully sustain and growproduction, achieving and maintaining world-class excellence requires everymanufacturer to relentlessly and continually pursue efficiency improvements. Butnowadays, that is not enough,” Hulak noted. Hulak also noted that the 4th Industrial Revolution is no longer a theoretical term and yet still to be somehow understood. Philippa Rodseth, executive director of the Manufacturing Circle said shewas inspired by the range and quality of submissions, and to see how applicantscompete with international counterparts according to the objective benchmarkingprocess that has been established over several years by administering the competitionacross various countries. Chief director of future industrial production technologies, the Department of Trade and Industry, Ilse Karg, commented: “FotY is much more than a competition, it is bringing about consciousness of future manufacturing in South Africa, trends and examples of Industry 4.0 solutions that work. Small Businesses and suppliers need to take note of the FotY award winning companies and the opportunities becoming available from market leaders.” Also read: Who made the Factory of the Year award shortlist?

Natural gas seen as a vector of energy transformation

The UNECE’s Group of Experts on Gas is a high-level policy consultation body to empower and inform the work of UNECE Committee on Sustainable Energy. At present, UNECE boasts 56 member States in Europe, North America and Asia, including Russia and the US – two members that are expected to provide it with up to 70% of gas production by 2050. BRICS “The UNECE region will be responsible for 18% of the total gas demand growth through to 2050. Despite ambitious decarbonisation targets in many UNECE members, natural gas will retain a critical role in region’s energy mix, being the most resilient hydrocarbon resource,” added HE Sentyurin. Generation Francisco de la Flor Garcia, Chair of the Group of Experts on Gas: “A (UN) General Assembly resolution adopted on 21 Dec 2020 recognised the key role that natural gas plays in many countries and calls upon governments to enhance energy security through sharing of best practices in security of gas supply and demand. I interpret this resolution as a clear mandate for our continued work.” AFD and Eskom commit to a competitive electricity sector The 8th edition of the Group of Experts on Gas session noted that the UNECE region is falling short of its commitments and objectives on sustainable energy. The Group concluded that its key contribution to achieving these objectives could be in two areas: (a) deep transformation of the energy system; and (b) reducing the environmental impact of energy. The Gas Exporting Countries Forum (GECF) is supporting the EU’s intention to consider gas as a sustainable source of energy under the new green labelling system. UNDP China, CCIEE launch report to facilitate low-carbon development “GECF believes that all UNECE member States should recognise the use of gas, especially in cases where the gas technology replaces higher-emitting power sources and can cut emissions,” said HE Sentyurin. Other areas that came under discussion were best practices in methane management in the gas sector, decarbonisation through synergies between gas and electricity, hydrogen, sustainable production and consumption of gas and liquefied natural gas, and gas in transport. TAGSdecarbonisationgasnatural gas Previous articleNo silver bullet but many ways to renew Mpumalanga’s economyNext articleNew rooftop solar PV module tailored for C&I makes a market entrance Pamela Largue RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Natural gas, it was asserted, should begin to be seen as beyond a fuel, and as a vector of energy transition including, notably, hydrogen and bio-gas. Citing the latest available figures available from the GECF Global Gas Outlook 2050, Sentyurin noted that natural gas supply in the UNECE region will increase at an annual average growth rate of 0.8%, representing an overall increase of 29%, climbing from 2,320 billion cubic metres (bcm) in 2019 to around 3,000 bcm in 2050.

Festival times! hurray!

first_imgCome October and it is time for celebrations and festivals throughout India. As the autumn sky turns poetic, the cool breeze ushers in, a season of good times and festivities begin. It is time for gaiety and joviality, amusement and togetherness.It is the moment of triumph of good over evil. We witness the Ram Leela in the glory of Lord Rama followed by Dusshera where the effigies of Ravan, Kumbhkaran and Meghnad are blown away with the celebration of fireworks. These Navratris are also celebrated as dandiya utsav where the night is to be danced away. For all us Bengalis, it is Pujo time!Durga PujaWhen suddenly you can see shuili phool ( commonly known as night flower) growing in wilderness, you know it is the time of the year when our mother descends from her husband’s majestic galaxy to visit her parental home. Ma aschhen.The humble earth rejoices. Flowers bloom in brilliant colours, the birds merrily chirp away and the sounds of dhak and the aroma of dhunochi turn the atmosphere heavenly.To match the glamour and glitz we all complete our Pujo shopping in time to look our best in front of our dear Ma who has come to bestow us with good blessings and health for a year.As young girls, my sister and I would excitedly wait for parcels of presents or money sent by my loving Dida and Masi from far away Agartala to complete our Pujo shopping. We would accompany our Mother to markets and fondly choose dresses for the Pujo.Pujo meant waking up early in the morning, one fine day and finding Daddy tuning our Radio to harmonious and powerful Mahalaya renditions.Pujo meant school breaks and visiting pandals doing idol hopping, offering pushpanjali and eating khichdi prasad during the day.Pujo meant being dazed by the joyous sounds of Dhak, witnessing the splendorous Aartis and enjoying the cultural extravaganza at night.Pujo meant tempting mouth-watering food and more food! From delicious double egg rolls to sumptuous mutton biryani.As we grew up, our other non-Bengali friends would also heartily accompany us to the beautifully decorated pandals and be awestruck. We would all giggle away in our sarees and idle away our time, forgetting any seriousness; just being in the present and frolicking to the heart’s delight.Now, is that time of the year again. Let us all get ready to soak in the glorious atmosphere, to cherish the feverish merriment and be a part of the ever-increasing maddening crowds!Happy Durgo Pujo. Bolo bolo Durga Mai ki Jai.last_img read more

It is always relative figures which matters

first_imgFigures across space and time are relative and not absolute numbers.When we say Europe is growing at 2%, it does not mean much unless it is compared over time or with other economies. The growth rate of less than 7% for an economy like India means sub-optimal growth rate while a growth rate of more than 3% means a very high growth rate for a developed economy.Similarly, when we say the Indian economy grew by 6%, it means the growth rate is less. But when we compare this with the growth rate during the 1950’s and ’60s, it shows a high rate.You cannot compare the growth rate between agriculture and services sector. Both have very different growth rates.You cannot compare a company of the size of Reliance Industry with a startup.Similarly, while 50% marks scored in some exams means a lot, 98% in some exams is considered less.While 80% marks scored in 70’s and 80’s in class X was considered to be good, it is average or below average nowadays.So, what is important and relevant is the comparison over time and space. It is also important to compare between comparable. Absolute number just gives a number. It becomes relevant only when it is relative.last_img read more

EQUALITY IN 21ST CENTURY.

first_imgWe live in the 21st century and not much has changed in the way society thinks. Equality is still a myth and discrimination is still prevalent. We talk about the development of society as a whole but we don’t talk about the struggles of the LGBTQ community that has been fighting for equal treatment to date. People who hold a good position believe that there is no inequality because they have all the privileges. Unlike, others they don’t have to suffer any ill-treatment. They don’t have to fight and struggle and feel discriminated on a daily basis.That is one example, there are ample other examples that still depict that despite everything that humans have achieved we still have not solved some of the biggest problems. Inequality is one such hurdle in the path of a better future. Women are still not treated as equally as men. They are still facing discrimination because they do not have equal opportunities as men, they don’t have the same salary as men. Men have so many privileges as their birthright but women have always been struggling to get the same rights. We need to bring a lot of changes and stop predicting like everything is normal and that we have achieved equality.Inequality arises in various ways, one such form is discrimination on the basis of caste. India has four major castes and on the basis of which we have always openly discriminated against the lower caste and even termed them as ‘untouchables’. Many claim that untouchability is a product of the past and it is not present in the current time. But that is a totally absurd claim because there are thousands of cases that can prove that it is still a crucial issue that needs to be solved.Just like lower caste people poor people in India do not get the same treatment as rich. To date, they do not even have access to basic amenities of life. They are struggling to earn enough to just sustain. They can’t afford a better lifestyle. They can’t dream of a better future because they don’t have access to resources. They deserve better facilities and treatment than they are currently getting.In the end, I would not say that complete equality is achievable but at least we need to recognize these issues as a serious problem. We need to consider these issues worth debating upon and take action on these as soon as possible because in the end we all are humans and deserve equal respect and the same treatment.last_img read more
