On the Tibetan Plateau in eastern China, 4 million solar panels silently soak up the sun as part of the Longyangxia Dam Solar Park. It’s the largest solar farm in the world, spreading over 10 square miles of the high desert landscape.

Wanting to save the world is a laudable goal, but economics is where the case for solar power and other renewable energy is being won. BNEF says solar now cost less than any other source of electricity in 60 countries around the world.
Originally published on CleanTechnica by Zachary Shahan Renewable energy is now the cheapest option, on average, for new electricity capacity around the world — in developed countries like the US as well as developing countries like India, China, Nigeria, and Mexico. As I noted the other day, we need to keep channeling this message to the broader […]
Originally published on CleanTechnica by Adam Johnston Firm growth from China will help boost overall global PV demand for the 10th consecutive year, according to a recent report from IHS. IHS Technology Senior Analyst Josefin Berg said Chinese feed-in tariff (FIT) cuts from last September have created higher-than-projected 4th quarter growth. Berg notes global capacity additions reaching 77 […]
Originally published on CleanTechnica by Zachary Shahan To be fair, we don’t yet know what Donald Trump’s precise climate approach will be, but it seems all but guaranteed that he will slow and obstruct climate action and will do a “great deal” to increase pollution and CO2 emissions from the out-of-date oil, coal, and gas industries. This is idiotic not […]
Originally published on CleanTechnica by Joshua S Hill China’s National Energy Administration has claimed the country installed a fantastic 34.2 gigawatts of new solar PV in 2016, up significantly on expert predictions. According to several reports translating an announcement from the Chinese National Energy Administration (NEA), China connected 34.24 gigawatts (GW) of new solar PV capacity […]
China, Japan, South Korea, and Russia plan a global ultra-high voltage grid for renewable energy. But first, they must settle their political differences.
Sungrow is the largest inverter manufacturer in China and the company is now expanding into the solar power development business. An agreement was recently signed between eastern China’s Chaohu government for the development of 600 MW of PV solar plants. (Note that Chaohu is a city with a population of about 859,000.) The goal is to have all 600 […]
Huawei will provide 100 MW of solar inverters for the construction of a solar power plant in China’s Ningxia Province, which located in the northern central part of the country and has a population of about 6 million. The exact location is at or near an old coal mine. “Because the PV power plant is built […]
As Apple observed the completion of a 40 MW solar project it has had under development in the Sichuan province of China, it announced it would add another 200 MW in that country. (The new 40 MW solar plant apparently makes Apple’s retail and admin systems in Sichuan neutral on the carbon front.) Perhaps even more impressive – […]
