China wants to turn Chernobyl exclusion zone into solar power plant

Two Chinese companies have announced plans to build a one gigawatt solar photovoltaic plant in the exclusion zone surrounding the Chernobyl nuclear reactor, reviving the site after the worst nuclear power plant disaster in history.

Thirty years after a catastrophic meltdown in 1986 forced the authorities to evacuate all people and create an exclusion zone within a 30 kilometer radius of the Soviet nuclear plant located on the territory of modern Ukraine, Chinese clean energy giant Golden Concord Holdings Limited (GCL) embraced the ambitious project of reviving the area by building a solar plant within the exclusion zone’s confines.

GCL System Integration Technology [...]

(NYSE: IHS), the leading global source of critical information and insight.

Price wars among Chinese suppliers have become so fierce that many small suppliers have left the market entirely. Despite only formally launching its inverter portfolio in late 2013, Huawei was able to make significant gains and quickly become the second largest supplier in [...]
