Intersolar North America
Preview Intersolar North America
In the run-up to Intersolar North America in July the focus is on the USA: what potential does the solar market offer? Where are the most important regions and what are the main
technological themes? Furthermore, S&WE will give an outlook on new products and solutions that are especially announced for the Intersolar North America.
Solar market California
In 2012, the US market grew 76 % with solar installations totaling 3,313 MW across the country.
California continues to lead the US market, thanks to consistent and aggressive legislation that
provides incentives for solar projects at any scale.
Tools for planning and monitoring
Independent software products or tools from the manufacturers: intelligent software
is needed for PV systems both large and small from their creation to the end of their life cycle. What are the important
aspects of these clever and helpful utilities? S&WE has taken a close look at the products on the market.
Market overview collectors
More and more solar pumps are already ErP-ready. Here’s a new innovation: a box
that converts the signals from an installed controller (wave packet, leading phase or
trailing phase angle) into a PWM signal. That can be important if at some point in
the future a conventional pump has to be replaced by a high-efficiency pump. We
report on the latest news.
