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he will slow and obstruct climate action and will do a “great deal” to increase pollution and CO2 emissions from the out-of-date oil, coal, and gas industries.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 […]

As I wrote yesterday, Solar Love is partnering with CleanTechnica, EV Obsession, GridHub, and others to bring the first Cleantech Revolution Tour event to Berlin, Germany. It will focus on solar energy one day (April 10) and electric vehicles the other day (April 9). You can view the agenda here, register here, or sign up to help […]
In partnership with CleanTechnica, EV Obsession, GridHub, and several others, Solar Love is launching the first of several planned “Cleantech Revolution Tour” events in Berlin April 9–10. (Full agenda here — subject to change as we add partners, add speakers, and improve the event.) One day of the event will be focused on solar energy, […]
InnoLas Solutions GmbH (InnoLas) is supplying five additional ILS-TT high throughput laser machines for Passivated Emitter Rear Cell (PERC) technology to Sino-American Silicon Products Inc. (SAS) with its subsidiary Sunrise Global Solar Energy Co. Ltd. The new laser machines are for Sunrise’s high efficiency cell factory with 800 MW of yearly production, which will be operational in […]
Reportedly, Germany has 35 GW of installed solar capacity and that could grow fairly soon to 52 GW. For the sake of comparison, the US has about 22 GW. A new analysis states that Germany could surpass its current level of installed solar with no problems, providing that one condition is met. You might have guessed what it […]
German-based Bosch is now in the midst of a complete exit from its solar PV play, having announced it will close its thin-film PV development site, Bosch Solar CISTech GmbH, due to its inability to find a suitable investor. As reported by pv-magazine, an exact date for the closure has not been given. Some 180 employees will […]
PV solar power generation in Germany is already 5% higher in the first nine months of this year than all of last year. Germany’s PV systems generated 33,193 gigawatt hours of solar electricity through the end of September, according to the German Association of Energy and Water Industries. Wind power in the first nine months of 2015 has generated […]
On July 25, 2015, Germany got 78% of its electricity from renewables, including wind, solar, biomass and hydro. On average, 28% comes from renewables.
New figures released Monday by Wiki-Solar have pegged global utility-scale solar PV capacity at 45 gigawatts at the halfway mark of 2015. According to the self-proclaimed utility-solar authority, there were 8 gigawatts (GW) of new solar PV plants in the first half of 2015, which could set a new annual record if things continue along this […]
Carrying out applied research throughout the entire process chain of wafer-based silicon solar module production, Fraunhofer CSP is currently working on improving the quality of wafer-thin silicon discs and in producing them as cheaply as possible.
