The new edition of PV Tech Power – PV Tech Power 23 – is now available to download entirely free of charge.

Volume 23 of the journal uncovers precisely how both the upstream and downstream solar sectors have tackled the COVID-19 pandemic. Included within the cover story of this issue are stories of not just how the industry has circumvented the virus’ impacts, but how the post-pandemic landscape could shape up.

Meanwhile, our plant performance section includes all the usual technical insights, this issue featuring briefings on aerial O&M inspections, progress towards a testing standard for light and elevated temperature-induced degradation (LeTID), and potential-induced degradation (PID) of bifacial PV modules incorporating PERC (Passivated Emitter Rear Cell) technology.

Other features in this issue include:

  • Chile reaping the rewards of the desert sun

Molly Lempriere discovers what’s driving growth in one of Latin America’s hottest markets, and what could yet prove to be the biggest obstacle

  • Project briefing: South Africa’s largest solar project springs into operation

We learn how Scatec Solar dodged the impact of COVID-19 by one day to connect South Africa’s largest utility-scale solar farm

  • Post-subsidy solar: The reality on the ground

Solarcentury’s Peer Piske discusses the finer points of designing subsidy-free solar projects

PV Tech Power 23’s Storage & Smart Power section - presented by Energy-Storage.news - leads with a technical briefing on vanadium redox flow batteries from CENELEST, while both Power Ledger and AutoGrid Systems discuss the role of artificial intelligence and blockchain in transforming energy networks.

You can download your digital copy of PV Tech Power 23 entirely free of charge via the PV Tech Store. All previous editions of the journal, as well as our upstream journal Photovoltaics International and a raft of technical papers, are also available for download.
