DEGERenergie: Strong demand for MLD tracking in the USA - Solid growth of renewable energy worldwide

The worldwide renewable energy boom continues. Now, the euphoria has also arrived in the American solar market. This is what DEGERenergie reports from the Intersolar North America. With more than 45,000 systems installed worldwide, DEGERenergie is the global market leader for solar tracking systems.

The Intersolar North America 2011 organizers recorded an "impressive growth", as the event, despite the difficult overall economic conditions, has grown in all areas in recent years. This year, 839 exhibitors from all over the world had travelled to San Francisco – 17 percent more than in 2010. More than 22,000 visitors learned about the most recent trends and technologies for solar energy generation.


DEGERenergie profited from this spirit of optimism as well. The booth of the world market leader for solar tracking systems was constantly crowded with visitors showing great interest in tracking systems in general, and particularly in DEGERenergie's patented MLD technology.

What surprises recently is the diversity of the demand in the United States. Not only potential investors and solar park operators were interested in information about the most efficient technology DEGERenergie offers for medium and large-scale solar projects – more than ever, specific inquiries also came from individuals wanting to benefit from the advantages of MLD tracking. Michael Heck, Vice President Marketing & Sales at DEGERenergie, puts it like this: "The issue of self-supply is rapidly gaining importance – not only in Germany."

The Intersolar Germany in June 2011 and the Intersolar North America substantiated the worldwide boom in the renewable energy and particularly the photovoltaics sector. In the first half of 2011, DEGERenergie achieved a growth of approximately 50 percent compared to the first six months of the previous year and, by the middle of the year, reached the mark of 45,000 systems delivered worldwide. Michael Heck: "In the industry, word has spread that MLD technology from Horb not only generates the highest yield and therefore the fastest ROI, but is also highly reliable."

DEGERenergie was founded in 1999 by Artur Deger and today is the world market leader in solar tracking systems. Worldwide, approximately 45,000 DEGERenergie systems have been installed in over 40 countries. The company is represented in Spain, Greece and North America with its own subsidiaries and cooperates with local distribution and service partners in many countries across the world. The patented DEGERenergie Maximum Light Detection (MLD) technology makes it possible to improve the energy yield of solar power plants by up to 45 percent compared to fixed systems.
