Issue 06/2016 Solar Edition

Solar thermal world market: Waiting for improvement
Solar thermal is stagnating worldwide. That is not expected to change in 2017, either. Nevertheless, if policymakers show that they are serious about implementing the COP-21 decisions, then there is hope for renewed strong growth in the medium term.

Issue 05/2016 Solar Edition

Market overview collectors: A slow process
The state-of-the-art of solar collectors is high, leaving little room for improvement. A key field of innovation is the segment for large-area collectors for solar heating plants. In addition, some collector manufacturers are stepping up their efforts to limit idle temperature.

Issue 04/2016 Solar Edition

Solar crowdfunding: A popular way
What do solar panels on 20 community buildings in Nottingham in the UK and a solar park in Langenbogen, Germany, have in common? Both projects have been financed through  crowdfunding platforms.

SUN & WIND ENERGY 01/2016 The Solar Edition

PV in UK: What to expect in 2016?
The UK’s renewable energy policy took a sudden turn in 2015. Drastic cuts were announced to subsidies for solar and wind. Other measures initiated years ago to promote clean energy were scaled down. Although they were motivated by budgetary needs, at the core of the decisions there is the new energy vision of the Conservative government elected in May. So what to expect for 2016?

Issue 06/2015 Solar Edition

World maps of the solar industry: Success and crisis in a global market
In this edition S&WE presents its well-known world maps of the solar thermal and the photovoltaics industry. The fl at plate collector industry in Europe is under pressure, and the vacuum tube collector industry is establishing itself in Turkey, India and Mexico. As expected, the global focal point of the photovoltaics industry has shifted to the Asia-Pacifi c region and the USA. The demand for photovoltaics continues to be high and inverter manufacturers are also benefi ting from this.
