Agri-photovoltaics is not new and has been a topic of interest to farmers and engineers for ten years. But agri-photovoltaics alone does not mean electricity self-sufficiency. Feeding it into the grid entails enormous dependence on the grid operator - on the one hand due to constantly changing feed-in tariffs and on the other hand due to limitations on the grid connection capacity. Only the combination with battery storage to optimise self-consumption and the expansion of one's own direct current grid for highly efficient self-consumption or direct sale to neighbours creates true self-sufficiency and independence.
The subject of conversion losses must not be underestimated. Depending on the system and components, energy losses of between 20-40 percent can occur. Energy that is lost and costs you money. For the first time, we'll show you at FAKUMA that there's another way. Together with Wittmann, we'll be operating an injection moulding machine directly from a salt battery storage system at the trade fair in hall B1 at stand 1204 – and with direct current and almost no conversion losses.
A solar roof with many modules as well as different orientations and everything is brought together on one inverter. This is only possible with AMPTs and a small DC microgrid. Highly efficient due to low conversion losses and optimised for self-consumption with the salimax® salt battery storage system from innovenergy®.
The funding jungle in Germany is becoming increasingly opaque. Some subsidies are being dropped, while new ones are being added. In addition, there are regional subsidies. And compared to other European countries, the German funding pots are not in first place. Here we try to give a rough overview of what support is currently available to ordinary citizens in Germany.
Storing energy with table salt! Dreams of the future? Far from it. This technology, which has been tried and tested for several decades, has long been available and deliverable! The Swiss company innovenergy® has been supplying households, commercial enterprises and industry with its salt battery storage systems for many years. They are THE experts in this field. The advantages: Salt batteries are ecological, sustainable, safe and extremely durable.
Constant power cuts were causing problems for the Gacha Foundation in western Cameroon. With the new DConnect® solution from innovenergy® and the Antenna Foundation, there is finally continuous electricity – and it is fully ecological! In Africa, of all places, an emerging continent full of opportunities, this state-of-the-art technology is being implemented for the first time as a pilot project.
80 innovenergy® DConnect® projects for commercial, industrial and agricultural applications in Germany, Austria and Switzerland will be equipped with AMPT string optimisers.
The first systems have been delivered. And they are running perfectly. Now the salipro® commercial storage tank is going into series production.
Security of supply is one of the most important issues facing businesses today. One essential question is: How secure are our electricity grids? And the next challenge is: How much more expensive will electricity become in the next few years? Where is the limit when even the litre of fuel has now risen to two euros and more. The search for continuity and calculability occupies many management floors.
25 Swiss francs a year is the electricity bill of Mark and Barbara in a small village near Solothurn. Steadily rising electricity prices no longer interest them. Their detached house with a small hobby workshop is completely self-sufficient. The system can bridge three days in winter or in fog with its various storage tanks. Gerber Energietechnik AG from Gümligen near Bern is responsible for the energy concept and its implementation.
