New module technologies: LHS, half-cut, MBB

The terms Light Harvesting Strings (LHS), half-cut (HC) cells and multi-busbar (MBB) are constantly appearing in the current discussion on photovoltaic modules. They promise higher yields and higher efficiencies. Our guest author René Schüler explains what this is all about. (more…)

Printing house in Germany relies on sun instead of diesel

Together with our partners Krisch Energietechnik GmbH and DHYBRID, we have installed a 95 kWp PV system on top of a production hall of the Regler printing centre in Altenstadt an der Waldnaab (Upper Palatinate). The special thing about it: The photovoltaic system relieves a diesel generator, which the printing company uses to meet its high power requirements. Thus, it creates maximum independence from the electricity supplier and lowers its high energy costs. (more…)

So environmentally friendly are solar systems

How much energy does a photovoltaic system take to produce? What is its carbon footprint? These questions come up again and again in discussions about the energy transition and the expansion of renewables. However, the myth persists that solar power systems take more energy to produce than they generate during their lifespan. This statement is definitively untrue. (more…)

New partnership with one of the world’s largest module manufacturers

Example PV plant with polycrystalline modules

We are expanding our portfolio to include high-performance polycrystalline solar modules of the manufacturer GCL System Integration Technology Co. Ltd. GCL is an international energy company, specialising in clean and sustainable energy production.
