pv magazine Global deckt den globalen Photovoltaikmarkt ab und ist nur in englischer Sprache verfügbar.

From the ground up

Community solar is already proving its worth in some markets by providing low-cost clean energy directly to consumers. In the April edition of pv magazine we look at promising community-solar marketplaces where deployment is being bolstered by supportive policies. In the United States, gigawatts of solar, developed and owned “by the people, for the people” is making a difference. We explore how supportive regulations, and a streamlined process can reshape the landscape for community solar, as consumers in Italy may soon discover.



The April edition also explores first-hand accounts of what can happen when solar projects don’t get their community engagement right. In one town, celebrity campaigners and local activists find themselves in a heated public debate – and discover that facts are often lost in the noise.

In Egypt, there are signs of a solar industry waking up. The government is pursuing an ambitious renewable energy target and solar generation is expected to play a significant role.

This month also sees pv magazine team up with the organizers of The smarter E Europe exhibition and conference to bring you a preview of some of the hot topics that will surely spark discussion on the floor. Preparations are well underway for the continent’s leading solar and energy storage event and there will be much to learn at the show in June.

Other topics in this issue:

  • Time to form, not follow: As the share of renewables rises in the electricity generation mix, we look at the role grid-forming inverters can play in network stability.
  • India’s $9 billion rooftop revolution: The target is ambitious and could breathe life into India’s dormant home solar market, but questions linger over implementation.
  • Pulling together in Central Asia: Could a collaborative approach accelerate solar adoption in a region that has operated with a united energy grid system since Soviet times?
  • A Mediterranean super-grid: Greece finds itself at the center of an ambitious interconnection proposal spanning from Saudi Arabia to the south of Germany.
  • French resilience: Two planned gigafactories could add 10 GW of module capacity in 2027, but French PV manufacturers warn policy support is essential to future success.
