Still favorable investment conditions for unlicensed photovoltaic plants in Turkey

Still favorable investment conditions for unlicensed photovoltaic plants in Turkey

The high solar irradiation and the high feed-in tariffs make investments in unlicensed photovoltaic plants in Turkey very attractive. The unlicensed market segment has the advantage that photovoltaic projects under 1 MW can be easily developed and connected to the grid compared to licensed solar projects in the country. Now the prevailing majority of cumulative installed photovoltaic system capacity in Turkey is belonging to unlicensed solar installations.

Space-based PV plants: the next big step for photovoltaics

Space-based PV plants: the next big step for photovoltaics

Building solar power plants in space will be possible in the not-so-far future according to the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA). Indeed, JAXA has announced that they have achieved a major technical breakthrough, which would eventually make the construction of space-based solar power plants possible. Concretely, the JAXA team has succeeded in converting and transferring electricity using microwaves for a distance of 55 meters.
