[Italy in the first half of 2023 photovoltaic installed capacity of 2.3GW] According to data released by the Italian Photovoltaic Association, the installed capacity of photovoltaic systems installed in Italy in the first half of 2023 was 2.3GW, an increase of about 12% compared to the same period in 2022. By the end of March 2023, the cumulative installed capacity of photovoltaic systems in the country reached 27.4GW. About 47% of the PV systems added in Italy in the first half of 2023 came from residential PV systems, with recent growth driven by the commercial and industrial sector (C&I) and utility-scale PV projects with an installed capacity of more than 1MW. Grid-connection of PV systems over 1MW, which had stalled since July 2022, resumed in the second quarter of 2023. Specifically, two 10MW PV plants in Piedmont and Puglia and a 36MW PV plant in Sardinia have been connected to the grid. Editor/Xu Shengpeng

  • [China will introduce a power storage system to Kazakhstan]
  • According to the press office of the State Grid Management Corporation of Kazakhstan (KEGOC), China Power International Development Co., Ltd. will introduce a power storage system to Kazakhstan. KEGOC pointed out in the news that the implementation agreement of the pilot project for the introduction of energy storage systems in Kazakhstan's unified energy system was signed in Beijing on December 4. "Under the agreement, China Power International Development Co., Ltd. will install a power storage system with a maximum capacity of 5 MW at the Kazakh State Grid Management Joint Stock Company substation," KEGOC said in a statement. According to KEGOC, the project aims to "study the impact of the power storage system on the distribution of the power system when the renewable energy power is incorporated into the unified power system of Kazakhstan."

  • [Mauritania launched a large-scale renewable energy hydrogen storage project]
  • Denmark's GreenGo has launched the Megaton Moon project in Mauritania, a 60 GW solar-wind power facility equipped with 35 GW of green hydrogen capacity. The project developer submitted a development application to the Mauritanian Ministry of Petroleum, Energy and Mines this week. The Megaton Moon project will be built in several phases, with the initial pilot phase expected to be completed in 2028 and the final phase to be completed between 2033 and 2035. In addition, the project will generate more than 70 million tons of desalinated water per year, which will be three times the amount of water consumed by the Megaton facility to produce green hydrogen itself. GreenGo said the project will also use more than 10 TWh of surplus energy to promote the development of large-scale agricultural industries and local supply chains in the desert region. "Developing a project of this scale requires close cooperation with the supply chain and purchasers," said Anders Heine Jensen, CEO of GreenGo. "The scale of the project will attract manufacturers to produce photovoltaic panels, wind turbine blades and electrolytic components locally. We are currently negotiating a Memorandum of Agreement with the manufacturer." Editor/Xu Shengpeng
