300MW solar with the Japanese-Hispanic agreement

Japan wants to get rid of nuclear power without giving way to dependence on fossil fuels. So in the Land of the Rising Sun, the focus is on geothermal energy and photovoltaics, albeit European: a Spanish company plans to invest around one billion euros in solar power in Japan. The Spanish company is Gestamp Solar and has signed an agreement with the Japanese company Kankyo Keiei Senryaku to build and operate solar plants with a capacity of 30 MW.

Solar panels: the guarantee is quality

The best solar panel is the one that guarantees good power over a long period of time. The reference criterion is the degradation of energy, that is, the loss of power of the cells due to the wear of the materials or the action of atmospheric agents: the lower the degradation, the higher the quality.
