H2Eco based in Poole, has designed an integrated parking solution, combining an architectural car parking canopy with an efficient solar photo-voltaic system.
Eaton’s Electrical Sector has significantly developed its DC switch-disconnector product. The constantly growing requirements placed on the efficiency of Photovoltaic (PV) installations now require operating voltages above the previous limits of 1000 VDC. For the first time, switches up to 1500V DC with rated operational currents up to 1600A are now available.
Fronius presented its new central inverter, the Fronius Agilo, to an international audience at Intersolar 2012. "The Fronius Agilo is the first central inverter in this power category that can be completely installed, commissioned and maintained by the installer," is how Martin Hackl, head of the Solar Electronics division of Fronius International GmbH, describes the unique selling point of the inverter.
As the photovoltaic market becomes more mature and commercially viable, leading solar suppliers are counting on solutions which are energy efficient, high performance and easy to install, so lowering the total cost of ownership. At its booth TE offered a sneak preview of its new intelligent connectivity solution for the photovoltaic industry, featuring continuous power monitoring and decentralized control.
To minimize resources dedicated to tape application during the module making process, Saint-Gobain Solar launched its SolarBond® ReadyFrame at Intersolar Europe 2012. This custom tape-in-frame solution has been selected as one of the top 10 nominees for the Intersolar AWARD 2012.
