Avalon Park | January 15, 2021
Avalon Park Group has entered a buy contract for 6,253 sections of land in Volusia County. The property is found around 5 miles west of Avalon Park Daytona Beach on State Road 40, west of Interstate 95, separated by West Granada Boulevard/State Road 40 and is neighboring the Tiger Bay State Forest.
Avalon Park Group has shaped a global consortium with Switzerland and Singapore based accomplices to bring a 300+ megawatt photovoltaic energy homestead to Volusia County. "Using the bountiful regular asset of the Sunshine State permits us to make a photovoltaic homestead at a scale that won't just help the supportability of the Avalon Park Daytona Beach Community, yet in addition gives an environmentally friendly power source to the whole locale to use," says Beat Kahli, CEO, Avalon Park Group.
The organization's vision to make sound, supportable networks' goes back 35 years to one of its first tasks, the Comino Hotels in Malta, where sun oriented energy was utilized. Avalon Park Group has since been occupied with other maintainability adventures including lumber, agribusiness innovation and other sun powered ventures in Germany and Switzerland.
Extra supportability plans incorporate a biomass and agrivoltaic ranch, a high level wetland treatment park to help with treating the overabundance greywater that has been a long-lasting provincial issue. Extra plans incorporate an agrihood, forest area, provincial sporting luxuries, and moreover to guarantee the protection of existing wetlands and open space.
"Environmentally friendly power as photovoltaic is the place where the energy market is moving to," says Beat Kahli, CEO, Avalon Park Group. "We are not entering this market in the US with our Swiss and Asian Partners on account of a shortage of fossil energies like gas, coal or oil, it is only a thought for which the opportunity has arrived. Also, the world didn't move out of the stone age in light of the absence of stone, but since of the bounty of new and better assets."
This land improves the maintainability plans of Avalon Park Group inside Volusia County which right now incorporates plans for a minimal, walkable, blended use and interconnected town where everybody can Live, Learn, Work and Play.

FTC Solar today announced the arrival of Voyager+, the next generation of its single-hub Voyager tracker, designed to furnish similarity with new huge organization solar modules currently entering the commercial center.
The huge modules entering the market are worked to consolidate bigger solar cells, which are the energy-delivering heart of each solar board. With these bigger 182mm and 210mm cells, the modules can accomplish power yield surpassing 500 watts. Voyager+ upholds these bigger organization modules and will actually want to oblige different module sizes from an assortment of solar producers.
"We are seeing an increasing level of interest around large-format modules and are pleased to introduce this new Voyager line to support our customers," said Tony Etnyre, FTC Solar's CEO. "As the industry transitions to larger modules, FTC Solar is ready to deliver tracking systems that are compatible with a variety of module sizes and configurations while maintaining our two-in-portrait format and industry-leading installation speeds," he added.
FTC Solar is as of now directing tests at its examination office close to Denver, Colorado, and will assess the presentation and primary prerequisites of a wide assortment of enormous configuration modules.
Huge organization modules are expected to lower solar venture improvement costs. As indicated by a Wood Mackenzie industry examination, work investment funds alone could be up to 6%, and energy creation per section of land will increase, with creation gains relying upon the module size and innovation.
The change to enormous organization modules is the following stage forward in an industry that has been adjusted around smaller standard module sizes for longer than 10 years. The industry's ecosystem of electrical and primary segments has been developed around these modules and normalization has streamlined development, driving by and large framework costs down.
The new large format modules will keep on driving framework level effectiveness enhancements. FTC Solar has been collaborating with module producers to identify and implement engineering changes to support larger modules such as fortified force tubes and altered damping technology.
Module makers are ramping up creation of 500W modules with 600W modules expected to be deployed in the second half of 2021.

Ulanqab, a location in Inner Mongolia famed for its attractive grassland natural landscape, has recently gained notice due to the region's construction of the world's largest source-grid-load-storage demonstration project. Additionally, it is China's largest wind-solar-storage hybrid project and its first renewable energy power plant to incorporate a GWh-scale energy storage technology.
The project's projected capacity is 3.1GW, which includes 2.8GW of wind energy, 300MW of photovoltaic energy, and 1,760,000kWh of energy storage. The project's first phase, totaling 500,000 kW of wind and photovoltaic energy, has already been connected to the grid. And JA Solar supplied all of the modules for the 90,000 kW photovoltaic component.
The total number of solar photovoltaic modules supplied by JA Solar for the project is DeepBlue 3.0, which incorporates several cost-cutting and profit-enhancing technologies that effectively reduce the levelized cost of power. DeepBlue 3.0 has been recognized by authoritative third-party institutions for its exceptional efficiency in power generation, receiving awards such as TÜV Rheinland's "Energy Yield Simulation AQM Award – Monofacial Mono Group" and TÜV Nord's "Outdoor Yield Performance Awards (High-efficiency PERC Module Group)." Furthermore, according to half-yearly data from an energy yield test conducted by JA Solar and TÜV Nord, DeepBlue 3.0's energy yield performance is among the highest in the PERC module market. By 2021, cumulative global DeepBlue 3.0 shipments would have surpassed 12GW, covering 86 countries and regions.
"The innovative application of source-grid-load-storage integration strengthens the coordination of the integrated power system, alleviates pressure on the power grid, promotes renewable energy consumption, and therefore plays a significant role in developing new ways of using renewable energy, It is a great honour for JA Solar to participate in the construction of this project and supply all the PV modules for its first phase. The continuous development of the PV industry is inseparable from the continuous innovation of products and technologies, and also the upgrade in applications. Moving forward, JA Solar will maintain focus on technology research and product development, thereby continuing to provide customers with high-quality products that contribute to the development of the PV industry and the construction of a low-carbon society."
