Report: Solar prices have more room to fall

first_imgReport: Solar prices have more room to fall FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Utility Dive:A new analysis from Greentech Media (GTM) Research estimates solar bids becoming as cheap as $14.07/MWh through 2022, assuming a perfect storm of desirable financing and technology advances.While that is an extremely low and aspirational price in today’s market, the report warns that the rate of cost declines is beginning to slow, particularly in more mature markets. But rapid declines will still likely be seen in developing areas.NV Energy proposed a portfolio of projects that currently has the lowest-priced solar — a 300 MW power purchase agreement at $23.76/MWh for 25 years, with the Eagle Shadow Mountain solar project.The industry has been playing the solar limbo for years now, as prices rapidly plummeted in response to economies of scale, new technology and experience.NV Energy’s proposal made waves by coming in below a $24.99/MWh contract signed earlier this summer in Arizona. And there is talk that a Tri-County Electric Cooperative deal in Oklahoma resulted in even lower wind prices than the NV Energy solar deal.The addition of storage is also helping bring down solar prices in some areas. In January, Xcel Energy received a median bid price of $21/MWh for wind-plus-storage projects and $36/MWh for solar-plus-storage projects. That beat out the $45/MWh price for a solar-plus-storage project hit last year in a PPA between Tucson Electric Power and NextEra Energy.More: How low can solar prices go?

first_imgThe army said the operation took place in Sambisa Forest believed to be the last stronghold of the militant group. The Nigerian army says it has rescued more women and children that had been abducted by Nigeria’s militant group Boko Haram in  an operation that happened on Thursday.The  army said the operation took place in Sambisa Forest believed to be the last stronghold of Boko Haram.It was however not clear if any of more than 200 girls abducted  by Boko Haram from a school in Chibok in April 2014 were among those freed.In a tweet, the Nigerian military said , another set of 234 women and children were rescued through the Kawuri and Konduga end of the Sambisa Forest.Some 500 women and children have already been rescued by the military in the past few days.The military had pledged to free more hostages from Boko Haram after hundreds were rescued earlier this week.The military also said on Thursday that about 160 hostages had been rescued from Sambisa in additional to 200 girls and 93 women freed on Tuesday.The numbers underlined the scale of the tactic of mass abduction used Boko Haram who according to Amnesty International have seized about 2,000 women and girls since the start of last year.The military said they were still screening the freed hostages with a view to establishing their identities.It has not yet been confirmed if any of the girls rescued are from ChibokThe mass kidnapping in Chibok prompted global outrage and forced President Goodluck Jonathan to accept international help in the search operation for the missing girls.Goodluck Jonathan  came under severe criticism for not doing enough to free the Chibok girls as well as end the six-year-old Boko Haram insurgency that has claimed some 13,000 lives and forced at least 1.5 million people to flee their homes.However Nigeria’s president Elect Muhamamdu Buhari has promised to deal decisively with the militant group which he has called a bogus organisation whose intent is to terrorise civilians.last_img read more
