Energy providers invest in Sharp solar power plants


The company has announced it has undertaken two projects. One will see Sharp working with EnBW Erneuerbare Energien GmbH, while the other will involve the

Pfalzwerke Aktiengesellschaft through the partner Eurosol.

According to Sharp, EnBW is entering the solar energy market as an investor for the Leibertingen solar park in Baden-Württemberg and will make use of Sharp's solar technology in the process. The same goes for Pfalzwerke Aktiengesellschaft, with its photovoltaic plant in Höheinöd, Rhineland-Palatinate.

"Together with our partners, we could realise a showcase project which will act as a beacon even beyond the boundaries of the regions," said Peter Thiele, executive vice president of Sharp Energy Solution Europe. "Both solar power plants clearly demonstrate how cost-effective photovoltaics can be, especially the thin-film technology. They make it clear that photovoltaics is a secure, profitable and environmentally friendly energy technology, thus making it a lucrative future model for energy providers."

Around 17,000 of the company’s thin film modules will be used to produce electricity in each of the solar power plants. With an anticipated 2.1 million kilowatt hours of solar energy, each plant can supply 600 households annually and save 1,200 tons of carbon dioxide (CO2).
