How green is PV? And why does it matter?
System paybacks for commercial and industrial (C&I) rooftop systems throughout Europe can be as low as five to six years. But to do this, the solar array needs to be sized correctly to meet the specific customer need. Additionally, the underlying business case and technical solutions needs to be aligned.
As developers are looking to install on hilly sites and sloped terrain for new projects, some are depending on tracker algorithms as a cure-all for undulating topography. Join our webinar to find out what combination of steps can be taken to mitigate energy loss.
Ensuring proper system design is key to installation success for rooftop solar PV project developers. K2 Systems says it streamlines the workflow with a new free software planning tool, automizing the planning process with information of different manufacturers in “cloud-based synchronicity”. In this pv magazine webinar, we explore the new feature.
ABB propone un nuevo enfoque para el diseño de inversores que puede asegurar una integración óptima con la estación transformadora. ABB, además, afirma que su nuevo inversor PVS-175, galardonado con un premio en la feria Intersolar, puede permitir diseños de sistemas disruptivos, y demuestra cómo la tecnología del inversor puede ayudar de manera efectiva a la […]
ABB is proposing a new approach to inverter design, which is said to ensure optimal integration with the transformer station. The company claims that its new, Intersolar award-winning PVS-175 inverter intends to enable disruptive system designs, and demonstrates how inverter technology can effectively support the solar industry. But markets, and the technologies that find acceptance […]
Do residents and firefighters gain heightened security from additional solar module shutdown facilities, like Module Level Power Electronics (MLPE), or would they fare better without them? And if MLPE are used, how can they be made safer? Despite TÜV Rheinland finding that fire safety is sufficient and Fraunhofer ISE stating that current PV systems are […]
While PV modules and inverters still represent the highest share of the initial capital expenditure of a large-scale PV system, there are other costs, including balance of system components and operations and maintenance, that will have a key role in PV system economics in the coming years. Thanks to technological improvements in solar modules and […]
What is emergency power, what is ‘full home backup’, and what is the difference between the two? Additionally, what do different homeowners need and how do you install an emergency power or ‘full home backup’ system? These questions will be answered during the next pv magazine Australia webinar – hosted in partnership with SMA. The webinar will dive into what […]
SMA is tapping Australian-made medium-voltage expertise, and have integrated it into a new central inverter solution. The SMA Power Skid Australia is expected to result in reduced delivery times and will significantly reduce the considerable currency risk faced by PV project developers. From SMA Bernhard Voll will join the discussion. Quantifying the currency risk, Voll […]
