What is the Maximum Solar Cell Efficiency?

16st November 2013   |  Author: Chris Sutor

We're always reminded of the amount of solar radiation falling on Earth - and how that could be the answer to the world's energy needs for all time to come.

What is Solar PV Efficiency?

22nd October 2013   |  Author: Chris Sutor

Solar Panel “efficiency” is the efficiency with which solar panels convert incident light into usable DC electricity.

Take 1m² of solar PV panel with 1000W/m² falling on it.

If the efficiency is 16% then the output would be 160W.  A panel with 1.5m² would have an output of 240W.

UK Target Update - 15% or 20GW by 2020?

13th September 2013   |  Author: Chris Sutor

As of the end of 2012, the UK was sitting pretty with over 11% of power coming from renewables... and with a steepening trend line upwards it appears that this is going to get better and better.

Here's a link to the charts that will explain a thousand words about the share of the UK energy generation that comes from renewable energy, such as solar PV:-

What difference does a solar pv panel make?

24th August 2013   |  Author: Chris Sutor

The answer is... a big difference?

Going for a quality solar pv panel, such as those supplied by All Eco Energy, the UK's leading solar PV wholesaler trade supplier, means that performance will be more likely higher than otherwise the case.

Are micro inverter necessary?

22nd August 2013   |  Author: Chris Sutor

Old theory on solar PV inverters was that shade on one solar pv panel would affect the output from the entire string.  With developments in power inverter technology, and rapid, wide range, scanning algorithms that seek out real MPPTs rather than local MPPTs, it seems that the benefits of micro inverter systems are not as great as they may otherwise be.

From 29th July 2013 - Statement by EU Trade Commissioner Karel De Gucht on Trade Tariffs

15th August 2013   |  Author: Chris Sutor

Good morning ladies and gentlemen,
On 4 June, I announced the decision to impose provisional antidumping duties on Chinese solar pv panels of 47.6% as of 6 August 2013.
In view of the exceptional circumstances of the market and to underline our willingness for negotiations, we allowed for a two months period in which the duties were set at 11.8% only.

EU Duty Update

31st July 2013   |  Author: Chris Sutor

Well, it looks like the Chinese threat of levying anti-dumping tariffs on French wine have taken their effect.  The proposed EU solar anti-dumping tariffs of 46.7% may be averted after all... and a minimum price may be set to avoid "selling below cost" and a maximum quota of 7GW per annum.

Tariffs on Chinese Solar PV Products

2nd March 2013   |  Author: Chris Sutor

As announced in the Solar Press, it appears that a tariff is likely to be put onto Chinese imported pv modules, cells and wafers in an effort to "balance" world trade. This tariff could add an additional 20-60% to module prices, and many within the industry will be wondering whether or not to support the move.
