This paper presents the specific context of the power system in Cyprus and the future University of Cyprus (UCY) microgrid along with the possible and expected impacts of the PV plant and Battery Energy Storage System.
This presentation provides the PV global and EU statistics data, the benefits of net metering and the electricity price breakdown per kWh.
This paper discusses the impact of Photovoltaic oriented DC stray current corrosion on large scale solar farms’ grounding and third-party infrastructure. The paper unfolds by thoroughly addressing three specific objectives: a) defining the origin of the problem, b) modelling the problem in commercially available software and c) discussing the arising implications.
This document is intended as a guide for international developers and solar investors who are considering investing in Pakistan, including an overview of Pakistan and its electricity market, the solar potential, progress in the solar market to date, the process for developing a solar project in Pakistan and the main institutions both provincial and federal that will be involved in the process, provision of key tax considerations for developers, the remaining challenges in the solar market in Pakistan and recommendations for developers.
The government of Jordan launched an aggressive national strategy to increase production of privately financed, commercial scale renewable energy. Yet by aggregating seven small, individual solar power projects into a single, standardized financing structure, the Seven Sisters, the country was able spread costs, shorten timelines, and ultimately attract the necessary financing and developers to make the effort a reality.
The objective of this guidebook is to enhance the reader’s understanding of how to successfully develop, finance, construct, and operate utility-scale solar PV power plants. The guidebook focuses on aspects of project development that are specific to solar. From this perspective it covers all aspects of the overall project development process including site identification, plant design, energy yield, permits and licenses, contractual arrangements and financing. This guide covers the key building blocks to developing a successful utility-scale solar power project.
This report aims at producing all the necessary elements to capture the full picture of the European markets for the industry, decision makers, investors and all professionals interested in solar heat markets.
This technical study provides an overview on the status on ways of measuring, monitoring and controlling solar thermal in smaller systems, with a clear focus on current methods. It looks into the state-of-the-art for solar thermal, including some components such as sensors, controllers and connectivity. Also, provides possible service offerings based on the remote monitoring, controlling of solar heating systems.
This guide aims at explaining the relevance of quality assurance for a sustainable market development, besides providing an overview of quality assurance measures applied to solar thermal products and installations around the world. It also indicates some possible steps in order to set up a quality assurance system in a country.
This publication tries to provide guidelines for policy and framework conditions related to solar heating and cooling, in particular solar water heating. It aims at providing a quick overview of the main issues to be considered for setting the right framework for the promotion of the solar thermal technology. Therefore, it outlines key recommendations and guidelines for the implementation of a programme for the promotion of solar water heating.
This roadmap pathway is focusing on the standardized and cost optimal solutions to integrate solar thermal technology in all industrial processes, by developing collector structures adapted to industrial buildings, improved large-scale solar collector arrays, and new planning and design tools.
L’objectif de ce guide est de permettre au lecteur de mieux comprendre comment développer, financer, construire et exploiter avec succès des centrales solaires PV marchandes. Il cible les promoteurs de projets entrant sur le marché, et est destiné à être une source de référence pour les entrepreneurs, les investisseurs, les décideurs publics et autres parties prenantes travaillant sur des projets PV sur les marchés émergents.
This guide aims at promoting solar water heating (SWH) systems to architects and builders from developing countries and help them consider integrating SWH applications in their designs. Intending to be a useful handbook, this “Quick Guide” provides a compact overview of the technology and its main characteristics; as well as the main requirements to be considered for its application in different types of projects and in different geographical locations.
