This report provides facts and figures about the benefits of utilising low-cost utility-scale solar to keep the European grid stable and reliable for the European Union to meet its 2030 renewable energy targets.
This paper from the Industrial Competitiveness Task Force details SolarPower Europe’s key asks and recommendations to further support the growth of the European solar industry and outlines our key targets for a practical solar supply side policy.
The Global Market Outlook 2019-2023 provides comprehensive historical market data, five-year forecasts for the main global markets, as well as an analysis of the segmentation between rooftop and ground-mounted solar systems. This report focused on the GW-scale solar power markets in 2018 around the globe.
This document explains the roles and responsibilities of various stakeholders such as the asset manager, the operation service provider and the maintenance provider, and provides an overview of technical and contractual terms to achieve a common understanding of the subject. It then walks the reader through the different components of O&M, classifying requirements into ‘minimum requirements’, ‘best practices’ and ‘recommendations’.
This module summarizes necessary steps for the installation of the Solar Powered Irrigation System. The installation of an irrigation system requires planning and decision-making by the producer, as the system should be set up according to set preferences and operation requirements. This module contains the relevant process steps to be taken to finally set up the system. In this module it is assumed that the technology provider is not necessarily the service provider for the installation of the SPIS.
This module provides an introduction to the complexities surrounding irrigation.
Solar photovoltaic (solar PV) electricity has recently become the lowest cost source of electricity in most parts of the world. Solar PV supports a socially just and acceptable energy transition and integrated applications, as well as new business opportunities. This report is focusing on one of these new business opportunities. It aims at describing the added value of Building Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV) for a successful energy transition in European cities, as well as the related opportunities for EU businesses. It describes the regulatory and market framework needed for sustainable business models for BIPV, that are adapted to city planning constraints and specificities.
