Understanding Battery Degradation

Batteries may degrade gracefully up to a point, then experience “rapid fade” and lose capacity quickly. A system that has been designed to meet a given level of demand will, at some point, be unable to do so.

PVinsights: Solar slides as demand weakness weighs

Alternative Energy - Thu, 09/14/2017 - 08:37
With tempered RMB rally, polysilicon prices ceased the uptrend this week. Polysilicon was not able to inch higher in China, in part because recent stagnation have been seen mostly as downstream demand continued to fade, leading most buyers to refuse any higher prices. High polysilicon prices went beyond buyers' affordability with depressed downstream prices, and some wafer producers even not did rule out the possibility to reduce the productivity in the face of bearish outlook, slashing the demand for polysilicon. Polysilicon in overseas market also hit the plateau this week.
