European Solar Power Market Trends We Can Learn From

Green Alert
The Solar Power industry is rapidly on the rise, especially after uncertain oil pricing and the realization of the warming planet. An analysis of the market trends of this sector, especially in Europe can help bring forward interesting insights for the rest of the world to learn from. After a dip in 2016, the European solar power market recovered remarkably in 2017 and added 8.6 GW of solar capacity. This growth was largely driven by technological progress, cost reductions and the development of novel business models such as on-site direct wire mini power purchase agreements (PPAs). This business model is increasingly getting among large-scale solar project developers to overcome regulatory barriers. Simultaneously, fully automated energy management across all sectors and segment...

DST, GOI Launches Surya Jyoti – A Low Cost Micro Solar Dome

Green Alert
Minister for Science & Technology and Earth Sciences, Dr. Harsh Vardhan addressing a Press Conference after launching Surya Jyoti, a Photo-Voltaic Integrated Micro Solar Dome, which will change the way we look at electrification today (5 April, 2016). The Surya Jyoti Solar Dome stands to cost about Rs. 1,200/- and the Non Photo-Voltaic version stands to cost around Rs. 500/-. These cost figures are preliminary and are expected to reduce to Rs. 900/- and Rs. 400/- respectively. It is indeed a step close to making solar energy production a mass movement in India. According to the Government estimate, the potential users of this device are approximately 10 million households. If the technology is adopted by just these 10 million households, it has the potential of saving 1,750 m...
