Altec Metalltechnik has developed a mounting system that it claims can be combined with all roof types, regardless of the type of module.
The government has ramped up its budget for the rebate scheme to €10 million.
The German conglomerate’s electrolyzers boast efficiency levels of up to 80%. The modular devices can be connected to form plants of almost any size.
German PV asset manager Encavis and Danish renewables company Greengo have already secured approval for one large project.
The German solar developer has secured a power purchase agreement from French energy giant Engie, which has agreed to buy electricity from a 41.5 MW solar plant under development in the Mecklenburg-Vorpommern region.

Synthetic kerosene produced from green hydrogen promises emissions-free air travel. That sounds good – and it does not even cost that much. But there is still much more work to be done.

Described as “historic”, the draft outlines the future climate protection course of the European Union. Overall, the EU should become climate neutral by 2050, and trigger €1 trillion in investment. €100 billion is expected to be made available for the transition. This is to be formalized in a climate law in the coming months. Although solar was noticeably absent in the draft, plans have been detailed by SolarPower Europe as to how it could be included.
EOn has calculated the number of PV modules that could theoretically be installed on the Imperial space station from the popular film series. It concluded that even a small version of the station would be able to provide enough solar power to supply 2.5 billion households on Earth.
