Solar irradiance outlook in Eastern Mediterranean 2021

This study summarizes the 2020 Eastern Mediterranean solar irradiance figures on the ground level and makes a preliminary estimate for 2021. Regional solar irradiance data is analyzed in order to estimate the normalized output of solar power facilities in the region, considering the strong link between the two variables. The average solar energy cumulative flux, measured at the IMS station in Bet Dagan in Israel's Central Coastal Plane during 2020, was 5,354 Wh/m2 per day, which is 4.4% higher than the 1965-2014 multi-year annual solar flux average. The anomaly was slightly out of the standard annual deviation of ±4.0% during the reference period. An estimate for 2021, based on the first nine months of the year, is 5,570±55 Wh/m2 per day. 2021 is also expected to show above average solar irradiance figures in the Eastern Mediterranean region, continuing the high-level solar irradiance trend - similar to the period of late 1960s and early 1970s.

Overview of the Israeli electricity market 2021

This report overviews the 2020-21 developments in the Israeli electricity market with emphasis on the power generation segment. Despite delays attributed to the pandemic lockdowns, a significant progress continued in the renewables segment with integration of hundreds of MWp in 2020 and 2021, led by the solar segment while also finalizing the start-up of the first major pump accumulation project in Gilboa. By the end of 2020, Israeli national electric generation capacity was at 19.8 GWp, with IEC making up 59.0% of total grid-connected capacity, while private producers made up the remaining 41.0%. In terms of electricity generation and supply, 73.5 million kWh were produced in 2020 in the Israeli market, up from 72.5 million kWh in 2019. The 2020 generation segment was relying on a mix of fuels, dominated by natural gas and coal - both utilized by the Israel Electric Corp (IEC) as primary fuels. Secondary fuels of the IEC were diesel, oil fuel and methanol. Private power generation facilities were primary relying on natural gas, while diesel, oil fuel, kerogen and renewables were secondary energy sources.

Global solar PV operation and maintenance 2021

This research estimates the size and trend of the global solar photovoltaic (PV) operation and maintenance (O&M) market as of 2021. The methodology for this work includes segmentation of the global market to multiple countries, with each country having a different ratio of residential, commercial and utility scale solar installations. The result of this study for 2021 - global solar PV O&M market size cap is 9.8 billion USD, composed of distributed (residential and commercial) 3.9 billion USD and solar fields (industrial and utility-scale) 5.9 billion USD segments. The current estimate is that by 2025 the global solar PV O&M market would grow to a total of 16.9 billion USD, composed of 8.2 billion USD distributed and 8.6 billion USD solar fields segments.

Projection for 2021 oil prices

Passing 2020th year would be remembered as a very volatile period in the oil market, which fluctuated from a positive bullish trend to an historic collapse into negative prices by late April and then some stabilization for the rest of the year. In 2020, oil traded at an average pricing of 41.76 USD per Brent oil barrel and vast range of 18.38-63.65 USD on monthly basis. This study aims to provide a careful projection for next year's average oil pricing, utilizing predictive analysis methods correlated with fundamental analysis. Evidently, predictive analysis cannot provide accurate answers, since it is rather providing a statistical probability, but we can define a high probability range with fair accuracy.

Solar irradiance outlook in Eastern Mediterranean 2020

This study summarizes the 2019 Eastern Mediterranean solar irradiance figures on ground level and makes a preliminary estimate for 2020. Regional solar irradiance data is analyzed in order to estimate the normalized output of solar power facilities in the region, considering the strong link between the two variables. The average solar energy cumulative flux, measured at the IMS station in Bet Dagan in Israel's Central Coastal Plane during 2019, was 5,543 Wh/m2 per day, which is 8.1% higher than the 1965-2014 multi-year annual solar flux average. The anomaly was notably out of the standard annual deviation of ±4.0% during the 1965-2014 period. This is one of the highest anomalies ever measured in Beit Dagan station. 2020 is also expected to show above average solar irradiance figures in the Eastern Mediterranean region, continuing the high-level solar irradiance trend - similar to the period of late 1960s and early 1970s.

Integration of solar PV in Israel 2020

Solar photovoltaic (PV) facilities are continuing to form a dominant share of new capacity additions in the electricity generation segment worldwide and specifically in Israel. The total capacity of grid-connected PV facilities in Israel was at 1,690 MWp by the end of 2019 and is expected to surpass 3,100 MWp by the end of 2020. The total capacity of PV facilities increased by 36% year-over-year from the end of 2018 to the end of 2019 and is expected to grow over 80% in 2020 - continuing to rise from previous 29% annual growth rate in 2018. In terms of electric generation, solar PV facilities produced 2,467 million kWh in 2019 – an increase of 41% from 2018. The percentage of solar PV generation out of total electricity generation in the country increased from 2.5% in 2018 to 3.4% in 2019 and is expected to reach over 5.0% in 2020.
