    The Spanish cabinet has approved a 2.19 billion euro ($2.38 billion) investment plan. The strategy, first proposed by the Ministry of Ecological Transition and Population Challenges and the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, aims to combat drought and strengthen water resources. These include the construction of desalination plants powered by solar power plants, support for the reuse of urban water, reduction of expenses on affected agricultural farms, and relief of pressure on the aquifers that supply the Doñana National Park. The government authorized state-owned company Acuamed to tender for the new desalination plant and photovoltaic solar park, allocating a budget of 600 million euros. Acuamed will develop agreements to incentivize investment in photovoltaic parks and set a maximum selling price for desalinated water. Spanish developers have implemented projects using photovoltaic power generation to address water shortages through desalination plants.

  • Solar power at railway signaling sites
    Solar power at railway signaling sites
    • May 11, 2023

    Australia's largest rail infrastructure project, the Melbourne-Brisbane Inland Rail Freight Line, has switched to solar power to power its signaling system. The move is expected to save about A$25 million ($16.93 million) in costs. Following a successful trial of the solar signaling system at Coolleearlee in northern NSW, ARTC has approved the system for use at the remaining 82 signaling stations along the rail corridor from Albury in the south of the state to Gowrie in Queensland run. The Albury-Gowrie section is part of an ambitious inland rail project that will link the ports of Melbourne and Brisbane along a new route west of the Great Dividing Range. The line will bypass the Sydney metropolitan area and will also connect to the Sydney-Perth rail corridor. Construction on the project, which began in 2018 and was due to finish in 2025, has been plagued by budget blowouts and construction delays. While no completion date has been set for the project, ARTC has switched to a solar-powered signaling system, a move that will help save money. Rebecca Pickering, acting chief executive of ARTC Inland Rail, said using solar and battery energy storage instead of mains power for the signaling system had saved the project significant money, a move that eliminated the need to use local power infrastructure or obtain easements Mains power service for signaling sites.

  • Italy sets new rules for innovative agricultural PV industry
    Italy sets new rules for innovative agricultural PV industry
    • April 25, 2023

    The Italian Ministry of Environment and Energy Security has unveiled a new incentive program to support innovative agricultural photovoltaic solutions. The Italian government has submitted these new regulations to the European Commission and is now awaiting EU approval. The plan is part of Italy's National Recovery and Resilience Program (PNRR), which has a budget of 1.1 billion euros and should be sufficient to deploy around 1.04GW of installed PV capacity by June 2026. Only agricultural PV projects with vertical installation structures or high-efficiency innovative PV modules are eligible to participate in the program. Selected developers will receive subsidies up to 40% of the initial cost of procurement and installation of photovoltaic systems. These developers will receive feed-in tariff payments based on the energy they deliver to the grid. The new decree also defines "advanced agricultural photovoltaic systems". These systems must incorporate innovative installation solutions – that is, installing solar modules on the ground without disrupting the continuity of agricultural production. In summary, the new regulations define "advanced agricultural photovoltaic systems" as complex systems that both increase production potential and ensure continuity of agricultural activities.
