Ready for take off: The first online edition of EU PVSEC will start on Monday

Press Releases

The 37th European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition will start on Monday with the Opening Session, streamed live and free of charge via the EU PVSEC YouTube channel. The scientists will kick off with presentations on perovskite photovoltaics, intermediate band solar cells and high-performance organic photovoltaics. Afterwards, Professor of Physics Henry J. Snaith from the University of Oxford will be awarded with the Becquerel Prizefor his ground-breaking work on solar cells based on organic-inorganic metal halide perovskites.

From Perovskites to the TeraWatt Era and a carbon-free energy system: EU PVSEC´s plenary sessions combine overview presentations and striking news for the whole PV community

Press Releases

The three plenary events of the 37th European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition will provide current insights on PV technologies and applications and the role of PV in the future energy system. To attract scientists and industry representatives from the whole PV sector, the organizers have grouped overview presentations and striking news of the top experts in three morning sessions, rather than reflecting each conference topic in its own plenary session.

Mobile work platform for large solar modules: SMB Solar Multiboard launches new product range

Press Releases

Located in Nörvenich near Cologne, Germany, SMB Solar Multiboard GmbH has adapted its patented, mobile work platforms to the sizes of modern photovoltaic modules. Both of the company’s non-slip, 40 centimetre-wide aluminium boards are now six centimetres longer. In addition, SMB now offers its customers from all over the world a special 2.04 meter size for maintaining, repairing and cleaning particularly long solar modules.

Heating technology for the Antarctic: my-PV’s power managers provide hot water and heating from solar power

Press Releases

The engineers at the Princess Elisabeth research station in Antarctica installed five power controllers from my-PV at the end of March. With the Austrian company’s power managers, the research team will be able to use its surplus solar power in future to heat water, rooms and large buffer storage tanks. With the heat in the buffers, the scientists melt snow to produce drinking water.

From Tech-Day to Oktoberfest – Established workshop of the international off-grid industry takes place for the first time in Augsburg in September

Press Releases

Under the motto “Get rid of the grid!”, Messe Augsburg organizes for the first time the OFF-GRID Experts Workshop, the leading event for self-sufficient power supply with solar, wind and hydropower plants, with Phaesun GmbH as its specialist partner. The specialist event for installers, dealers, planners, users and organisations from all over the world will take place from 19 to 21 September 2019 at Messe Augsburg. The previous location Memmingen had become too small for the combination of informative lectures, interactive workshops, accompanying exhibition and networking events.

New solar power manager for farmers, businesses and domestic photovoltaic systems: my-PV launches AC-THOR 9s power controller for hot water and space heating from photovoltaics on the market

Press Releases

The new power controller AC-THOR 9s can control both electrical room heating and water heaters up to 9 kilowatts of power linearly. It controls three-phase heating elements or up to three electrical heat sources and can even supply several heating circuits and regulate them independently of each other.
Because it communicates with inverters, battery systems and smart home controls, the intelligent power controller always knows exactly how much excess solar power is available. In energy-optimised buildings, the device replaces the entire fluid-based heating technology. Missing energy comes from the grid. Alternatively, the solar power manager can also be integrated in conventional buffer storage tanks. The new power controller is no larger than its “little brother” AC-THOR, which my-PV launched in 2017 for detached and multi-family homes.

my-PV implements self-sufficient power-to-heat systems all over the world

Press Releases

In a research station, the manufacturer my-PV has implemented the first hot water generation system in Namibia that is completely based on solar power. Calpak Solar Energy combined the ELWA water heater with a 1.6-kilowatt peak solar system and installed the device in a 200-litre electric boiler. The researchers in the remote Desert Lion Conservation Research Centre on the Namibian Skeleton Coast can now self-sufficiently supply themselves with hot water at this inhospitable location. Supplying them with fossil fuels or wood would have been much more expensive than generating energy with solar power.

Solytic takes over solar monitoring portal Suntrol from Solarworld

Press Releases

Solar monitoring software provider Solytic will take over and operate Suntrol Portal by bankrupt solar panel producer Solarworld from March 8th 2019 onwards. For its 27,500 globally registered users, the portal will still be available free of charge. This way Solytic can ensure the continuous service of Suntrol as a first step. But the Berlin solar monitoring provider, whose financial investor is the energy provider Vattenfall, also plans to further develop their new asset in the future.
