Hydropower Plants to Support Solar and Wind Energy in West Africa

Hydropower Plants to Support Solar and Wind Energy in West Africa

Hydropower plants can support solar and wind power, rather unpredictable by nature, in a climate-friendly manner. A new study in the scientific journal Nature Sustainability has now mapped the potential for such "solar-wind-water" strategies for West Africa: an important region where the power sector is still under development, and where generation capacity and power grids will be greatly expanded in the coming years.

Solar Energy Farms Offer Second Life for Electric Vehicle Batteries

Solar Energy Farms Offer Second Life for Electric Vehicle Batteries

As electric vehicles rapidly grow in popularity worldwide, there will soon be a wave of used batteries whose performance is no longer sufficient for vehicles that need reliable acceleration and range. But a new study shows that these batteries could still have a useful and profitable second life as backup storage for grid-scale solar photovoltaic installations, where they could perform for more than a decade in this less demanding role.

Lowest Tariff for Solar Power in the World

Lowest Tariff for Solar Power in the World

The Al Dhafra Solar PV project will have the capacity to power approximately 160,000 households across the UAE with electricity. It will be almost double the size of the approximately 1.2 GW Noor Abu Dhabi solar plant - amongst the largest operational solar PV plants in the world - which commenced commercial operations in April 2019.
