    Ingeteam awarded for Largest PV Project in Jordan

    The Quweira site, in the southern part of the country, is finished - finally 100 MW have been installed.

    The power plant uses three square kilometers of land to produce over 2.5% of the total national electrical production, and is able to supply energy to more than 51,000 houses. 

    It uses a mix of tracking, that follows the sun from east to west, and fixed structure to maximize energy production the seasons and optimize the land usage.

    Huawei awarded for implementation of Smart Photovoltaic Solutions

    Huawei provided three remarkable PV plants with the concept of 'Digital, Simple, Smart Operations and Maintenance (O&M)' and enables the overall plants to be managed by the FusionSolar Cloud Management system, which has the function of high precise string level fault detection. It can precisely locate different faults, improve the O&M efficiency and realize non-attended '0-Touch'-maintenance. Consequentially very few onsite checks are required and the overall workload for the PV plant and the O&M costs can be reduced.

    The sites on which the PV systems are mounted on are unique in their own ways. The 108 MW PV system in Yanghzou was built on top of a fishery, the 30 MW system in Panzhihua on a mountain slope and the 1 GW PV plant in Ningxia is special alone by its sheer size. In harsh conditions and large scale PV plants need an easy and smart management. In other words, Huawei made the realization of these projects feasible through implementing their FusionSolar Smart PV Solutions.

    Schletter awarded for biggest carport photovoltaic system in Germany

    After implementing the biggest carport photovoltaic system in Germany at the airport Weeze, Schletter is now being awarded with the Global Leading RES Seal in the category „Unique Location“. 

    The Schletter-Group installed the biggest carport photovoltaic system in Germany at the airport Weeze in Westphalia. For the innovative design and the unique location the German CleanTech Institute is honoring Schletter with the Global Leading RES Seal – Unique Location. In only six weeks of time 70 skilled workers installed the Schletter carport system Park@Sol on 25,000 square meters. Because of the special build as a modular system the solar panels could be adapted to the local site conditions. And the airport management is already thinking about the next project, a charging station for electric cars.

    BYD Company Ltd. was awarded in the category 'Tech Driver' for the 31.5 MW Beech Ridge Energy Storage Project in West Virginia.

    The Beech Ridge Energy Storage Project, named after its Beech Ridge location in Greenbrier County, West Virginia, consists of 18 1.8 MW modules integrated into ship containers. Each container contains four battery levels as well as four 450 kW inverters, including transformer and cooling. The 31.5 MW energy storage unit is connected to a 100.5 MW wind farm planned by Invenergy and feeds electricity into the PJM Interconnection market in the USA.

    Intersolar North America was therefore the ideal opportunity for the German CleanTech Institute (DCTI) to personally hand over the award to BYD.

The German CleanTech Institute (DCTI) in close collaboration with the market- and research company EuPD Research, the International Battery & Energy Storage Alliance (IBESA) and Joint Forces for Solar (JF4S) choose companies for the Global Leading RES (Renewable Energy Systems) Award. The goal of the award is to honor outstanding photovoltaic and energy storageprojects and generate awareness in society. To match the huge diversity of the projects the categories First Mover, Tech Driver, Innovative Application, Unique Location und Largest Project were initiated. 

The DCTI identifies continuously international projects that deserve the Global Leading RES Seal. All members of the industry are therefore called upon to recommend award-worthy projects or hand them in directly through the application process.

» TOP Battery Storage

The market for electricity storage systems is growing as steadily as the number of manufacturers with a broad product range. 

The end customer are currently open minded regarding investments into a storage system but often irritated or confused while facing that comprehensive selection possibilities. In addition it is not easy for them to compare the different technical characteristics and the service features of the storage systems. Even the differentiation regarding inclusive and exclusive services is quite challenging.  

To support this selection process with objective findings the German CleanTech Institute (DCTI) and EuPD Research have developed a methodology that compares all relevant storage solutions in three product categories.

In addition the resulting performance data and service capabilities were set in proportion to the prevailing customer expectations. The products identified on this way are awarded as 'TOP Battery Storage'. The respective seals are published in cooperation with renowned business magazines with a large target group reach.

Meanwhile the 'TOP Battery Storage' seals were awarded in Germany and Austria. Beside the yearly re-execution of these analyses other European countries will be examined in the same way very soon.
