Solar Grids News

In this category, you can find all the news related to utility-interactive PV plants. Solar installations can be classified into three following types: on-grid, off-grid and hybrid systems with battery storage. Grid-feed PV modules generate power during sunny weather and supply it into electric grid, so you can access this backup power when needed.

Renewables curtailment 'will help to bridge the gap' in creating green hydrogen
Powering electrolysers with renewables generation that would certainly otherwise be stopped could be an efficient approach for generating green hydrogen in the coming years until the H2 sector gain from additional price declines, it was recommended throughout a panel discussion.
