In this section of our site you will find up to date information on the renewable energy market of Ukraine, new technologies and trends, as well as be able to read selected interviews and learn the views of experts in the field of energy efficiency and renewable energy sources (with an emphasis on issues related to solar energy).
Development of electric power storage systems fully changes models of co-operation between small private solar electro-generating stations and energy market all over the world. The idea of overall energy supply from an environment up to complete self-sufficiency continues to agitate minds of futurologists for creation of the future harmonious society model. However lately these ideas are implemented right in front of our eyes due to development of solar PV generation technologies and storm-like penetration of RES in energy segment all over the world.
Short analysis of world tendencies of investments in renewable energy sources (RES) 2004-2016 and 2016 to 2015 comparison on the basis of statistics, presented in 2017 by UN Environment, Bloomberg New Energy Finance, IRENA, Financial Times.
Projects in the field of renewable (alternative) energy are often not entirely transparent and understandable for potential participants. One of the most frequently asked questions, which requires clarification and clarification, is the possibility of implementing the project, using the EPC contract model (as an option - EPSM-contract) in the construction of solar power plants. The purpose of this publication is to provide an accurate definition of what the EPC or EPCM contract model is, their varieties, advantages and disadvantages for the customer and contractor, and the specifics of using it in practice.
In this article, solid-state photoelectric converters of ground and space applications are considered, their defects and ways of reducing losses are analyzed. Also you can get acquainted with the schedule, illustrating the latest achievements in the efficiency of photoelectric converters manufactured using various technologies.

Tier 1 module manufacturers are those which have provided own-brand, own-manufacture products to six different projects, which have been financed non-recourse by six different (non-development) banks, in the past two years. These 1.5MW+ deals must be tracked by our database, ie the project location (sufficiently to identify the project uniquely), capacity, developer, bank and module maker must be in the public domain. One exception is manufacturers which have filed for bankruptcy or a form of insolvency protection, or experienced a major default on bond payments; these are removed from the tier 1 list until further notice.
Your attention is invited to the next article devoted to the peculiarities of using BIPV-systems. This time we will talk about the features of designing BIPV-systems - both from an architectural point of view, and from the position of calculating an integrated solar power station, as well as the multifunctionality of BIPV-elements.
