Strong PV presence at Ecobuild


Until March 3, 1,300 exhibitors will have the chance to showcase latest developments in the fields of design, construction and the built environment.

The PV industry is soundly represented throughout the event, with its own section, and a campaign by Solarcentury – the solar hub entitled "Save Our Solar", calling out for the creation of stability in the PV industry in the UK.

"This has been an interesting experience. We’ve had lots of visitors: investors, installers and distributors, and are on the right path to achieve our purpose at Ecobuild, which is to draw the brand's image and get in touch with distributors," Bruno Marchese, key account manager at Norwegian PV module manufacturer REC Solar told pv magazine.

Smaller companies are really taking the advantage to make themselves known to both the British and global market. This is definitely true of Dynamic Solar, a full-service solar energy provider aiming to launch its newly-created BioEnergy PV panels. "There has been a really great attendance, but people are mainly hoping for tomorrow. But in general, it has been very good. We have had some investors coming, interested in participating, but also people curious to know more about it. Our main aim here is to create brand awareness and to announce the launch of BioEnergy," added Christopher Nielsen, sales representative at Dynamic Solar.

For the Krannich Solar Group, one of the top five companies in the European PV industry with 115 megawatts of installed PV capacity, this year’s event shows great improvements in terms of infrastructure, number of attendees and services available within the facilities. "The choice is really good, they really improved the place," said Steve Wallace, regional manager, who is hoping to "launch the brand and introduce it to installers and distributors".

Taking into account the show’s success last year, the event organizers expect over 5,000 visitors, a plausible estimation after a crowded first day, which brought investors, researchers, distributors, installers, and many people simply wanting to know more about the event, together.

Apart from company exhibition areas, the event hosts more than 130 seminars as well as an extensive list of conferences.

Ecobuild's second day highlights for the PV sector include a seminar on the installation and maintenance of PV and BIPV systems.
