24 SEPTEMBER 2013.PV MEGAZINE. Turnkey services provider Phoenix Solar will develop a 1.2 MWp rooftop installation for C M M Marketing Management, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Sheng Siong, the third largest supermarket chain in Singapore.

This first large rooftop project in Singapore is indicative of a new trend, Phoenix Solar believes. The demand for bigger PV systems is growing in the Southeast Asian country, where an industrial rooftop PV system can be expected to pay for itself in 7-10 years resulting in an unlevered project internal rate of return of 8 to 13%....
 
19. JULY 2013. PV MAGAZINE. Thai government announces FIT rates for 200 MW of rooftop solar and 800 MW of community-owned ground mounts. Systems will pay rates over 25, rather than previous ten, years and rooftops must be installed by December.

The Thai government has announced plans for another 1 GW of solar PV, including 200 MW of rooftop installations by December.Thailand's National Energy Policy Commission (NEPC) has approved FIT rates for 1 GW of rooftop and community owned PV, with the new FIT payments guaranteed over a 25-year period, rather than the previous 10 years....

27. June 2013. PV MAGAZINE. A new report by the IEA finds that worldwide renewable power generation will exceed that from gas and be twice that of nuclear by 2016 and make up almost a quarter of the global power mix by 2018. In 2012, global renewable generation already exceeded the total estimated electricity consumption of China.

Power generation from hydro, wind, solar and other renewable sources worldwide will exceed that from gas and double that of nuclear by 2016, according to a report by the International Energy Agency (IEA). The organization’s second annual Medium-Term Renewable Energy Market Report, published on Wednesday, predicts that renewable power will increase by 40% in the next five years despite a difficult economic context....
 
19. June 2013. PV MAGAZINE. Higher yield, improved durability and lighter footprint characterize new polycrystalline module series. Hanwha SolarOne launched its new poly-crystalline module series in Europe at the Intersolar exhibition opening today in Munich, Germany. Features of the new modules include higher efficiencies, reduced weight and size and anti-reflection glass with improved self-cleaning functionality.

The higher yield of the new module series is ensured through a combination of innovative technology and new service offerings. As a new feature for the European market, current sorting is introduced with the new poly series. Current sorting enables installation of module strings with similar current characteristics, thereby achieving higher yield. Optimized temperature coefficient facilitates improved performance in sunny, hot environments. Furthermore, high transmission anti-reflective glass comes with improved selfcleaning functionality, ensuring optimum solar exposure for the solar cells....
 
13. June 2013. PV MAGAZINE. Global investment in renewable energy reached $244 billion last year, a drop of 12% due mainly to the plunge in solar prices and weakened U.S. and EU markets, according to newly published twin reports by the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) and the Renewable Energy Policy Network for the 21st Century (REN21).

Despite a 12% drop to $244 billion globally, 2012 was the second highest year ever for investments in renewable energy, which have totaled $1.3 trillion since 2006. The decline in investment reflected the steep plunge in solar prices and the weakened U.S. and EU markets.....
