The Q1 2023 edition of our downstream solar journal, PV Tech Power, is now available to download, including comprehensive coverage on agrivoltaics and how it can open up more land for solar deployment.
The cover story of Volume 34 details how developers are taking advantage of opportunities in agrivoltaics while navigating the challenges it entails both during the construction phase and once completed with a look at different markets including the US, Australia, Africa, Germany and France.
As well as looking at how the use of solar data can shine a light on extreme weather events and protect assets and reduce risks, this issue reveals how solar developers are drawn to the emerging solar hotspot that is Romania ahead of a new contracts for difference (CfD) scheme.
As always, ‘Storage & Smart Power’, the section of the journal contributed by Energy-Storage.news returns too. Feature articles in the latest edition are:
- Evolution of business models for energy storage systems in Europe
Europe’s energy networks are united in their common need for energy storage to enable decarbonisation of the system while maintaining integrity and reliability of supply. What that looks like from a market perspective is evolving, write Naim El Chami and Vitor Gialdi Carvalho, of Clean Horizon.
- Jigar Shah on US battery ecosystem, recycling and reuse, the EU’s IRA response and the waning dominance of lithium-ion
Energy-Storage.news reporter Cameron Murray caught up with Jigar Shah, Director of the US Department of Energy’s Loan Programs Office and one of the most influential figures in the US executive department’s drive to build out clean energy technologies.
- Hunting the ‘missing money’ in New York’s energy storage market
It’s often considered among the leading US states for energy storage, but to date this reputation New York enjoys has been based more on ambition and favourable policy direction than action. ESN editor Andy Colthorpe hears why this is expected to change in the next couple of years.
- Physical security for battery energy storage
Cameron Murray talks to industry experts about the physical risks to battery storage sites, and how the security and insurance aspects of operating BESS sites are evolving.
