Fronius is set to showcase a wide range of solutions for intelligent and efficient energy generation at Intersolar 2017 in Munich, Germany.
The specialist trade fair for the solar industry begins on May 31, 2017.
The focus is on the integration of the energy, heat and mobility sectors.
For example, the Fronius Ohmpilot consumption regulator is a device that enables continuous regulation of heat sources, as well as innovative storage technology, allowing users to become more independent from the mains supply.
Every photovoltaic system must be individually adapted to suit the roof in question – be it for roofs with differing orientations or temporary shading. Fronius has the perfect solution in its product range to allow the operator to maximise their yield.
Fronius is working with Maxim Integrated to develop solutions for module electronics. These include the chip-based cell-string optimizers – integrated DC/DC converters that are embedded into the solar module and perform Maximum Power Point Tracking.
With the Solar configurator is an online tool for retrieving data and monitoring PV systems.
The design tool allows users to maintain exact dimensions and it has a standardised display, clear report summaries and all design-relevant data on a single page.
The company's head of the Solar Energy Division, Martin Hackl, said the goal is to use excess power intelligently.
“To successfully implement our vision of 24 hours of sun, we must use synergies,” he said.
“There is enormous potential for the efficient use of renewable energy sources in combining electricity, heat and mobility.”
Hackl pointed to a new technology for heating water - the Fronius Ohmpilot. “This will allow private operators of photovoltaic systems to significantly improve consumption and save on costs,” he said.
“The intelligent energy management solution uses excess energy to supply consumers such as heating elements, infrared heaters or other heat sources without motors with the currently available excess and to organise the operation of heat sources, for example heat pumps.
“This is made possible by the continuously adjustable regulation from almost zero to nine kilowatts.”
Hackl said operators of photovoltaic systems can achieve more independence from the public grid with the Fronius Energy Package.
This consists of inverter, battery and the bi-directional Fronius Smart Meter, which clearly displays energy usage.
