Reform to Feed-In Tariff for solar plants in Ukraine

Reform to Feed-In Tariff for solar plants in Ukraine

Early in June 2015, Ukrainian parliament adopted a Draft Law that contains various changes to the current feed-in tariff regime for solar plants in Ukraine, No. 2010-d of 19.05.2015. Due to several legislative barriers, such as a problematic local content requirement, the solar sector has stagnated for the last several years. The law amendment tackles many important barriers to pv systems.

Iran a promising emerging PV market

Iran a promising emerging PV market

 After one decade of economic isolation and sanctions, Iran is allowed to re-open its economy for worldwide trade and foreign direct investments. Its significant market size provides new interesting opportunities for foreign investors. Especially the solar market seems to be very attractive. Recently, feed-in tariffs for PV-plants have been generously increased to 17 – 30 €-ct /kWh.

South Africa, market leader in Africa

South Africa, market leader in Africa

South Africa is the main electricity producer in Africa (and the 17th worldwide) with 256 TWh generated in 2013. Currently, more than 90% of its electricity is generated using coal, whose reserves amount to 30 billion tons (end 2014). This ranks the country among the top ten in the world and in top position in Africa. The production of electricity from coal-power stations is highly polluting (40% of greenhouse gas of the continent comes from South Africa), hence, the government showed in the 2000s a strong willingness to reduce its CO2 emission and to develop a local renewable energy production.

The rise of solar power production in Africa

The rise of solar power production in Africa

In which continent is there the biggest desert in the world, five of the six countries with the highest solar irradiance and the warmest area in the world? Obviously, we are talking about Afrika. If we just consider these data, It would seem logical that this continent produces most of the solar energy generated worldwide. In reality however the African production amounts to a mere 1334 MW in 2014. That represents… less than 1% of the global solar production!
