The latest edition of the quarterly journal PV Tech Power – PV Tech Power 26 – is now available to download, including Storage & Smart Power, the section brought to you by Energy-Storage.news

Brought to you by our publisher, Solar Media, Volume 26 of PV Tech Power charts solar’s rise to the throne as the king of electricity markets, looking at what’s driving continued cost declines, how solar can install as much as 200GW in 2021 and what the last remaining barriers to deployment are.

As you’ll read, an increasing number of international solar markets are acting as growth engines for the technology, and we profile a handful of these in our Market Watch section. We have updates from Japan, which has established an ambitious net zero target, and Vietnam, which witnessed an enormous solar boom in 2020.

We also get the latest from the Indian solar market as it prepares for a major rebound in solar installs this year.

Meanwhile in E-S.n's Storage & Smart Power section, you can read about the vital role of software in realising the true value of energy storage, flow batteries and zinc-air energy storage and an update from the rapidly rising UK market.  

Other features in this issue include:

Going H2: The challenges and benefits of integrating solar and hydrogen
