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.
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.
The current situation is critical. Electricity self-sufficiency is becoming inevitable! Therefore, PV must be used maximally and highly efficiently. Alternative salt battery storage systems and private DC grids help with more profitability and double harvesting.
