IIT-Madras sets up India’s 1st solar-powered desalination plant

  The technology behind desalination plants may appear simple extract seawater, remove salt, make freshwater but operating such plants is power intensive and can also pollute the environment through toxic brine (salts) effluents. After it was realized that the solution to tackling water scarcity lay in seawater and the Sun, a team has now set [...]

Rumors Of Chinese Subsidy Cuts Send Shockwaves Through Solar Markets

Last year, China sent a shockwave through the global solar market after it cut subsidies and stopped approving new solar installations in the middle of 2018, aiming to curb a huge renewable subsidy payment backlog and push for subsidy-free solar power amid continuously declining costs.   This year, China has yet to announce its policies [...]
