All Off-Grid experts under one umbrella

10 years' company anniversary of Phaesun GmbH celebrated in the framework of first „Off-Grid Experts" Event

Memmingen, 05.10.2011. Solar enterprise Phaesun GmbH situated in Memmingen celebrated their „10 years of Phaesun and more than 500 years of Off-Grid experience" anniversary on September 30 and October 1 together with their customers and 13 international manufacturers of the solar trade. On this occasion, the Off-Grid experts organised a two days' exhibition with accompanying workshops. All in all, the members and partner of the Phaesun team stand for more than 500 years of professional experience in the Off-Grid sector.


"This event is extraordinary, since it is exclusively concentrated on the stand-alone power supply", Huguette Aust, PV Off-Grid Sales Director of co-organiser Steca Elektronik explained. „Solar trade events usually focus on network supply while the Off-Grid sector is mostly neglected. Meanwhile, however, it has developed into more than just a niche market and must be understood as an independent business sector."

The international visitors could inform themselves around the Off-Grid power supply with PV stand-alone systems at the in-house exhibition and used the opportunity to compare notes with the manufacturers on the spot. Representatives of the international Off-Grid trade introduced product innovations and new developments in the framework of workshops. They exchanged experiences in the field of rural electrification, water supply, industrial and leisure time applications. A motocross race with electric motorbikes and the Phaesun birthday party completed the entertaining framework programme.

Starting signal for further „Off-Grid Experts" Events

The Phaesun ten years' anniversary coincided with the first birthday of Phaesun France. Michel Mansard, managing director of the French subsidiary is planning further expert meetings: "We are happy to see that our „Off-Grid Experts" workshop met with such a big response and important representatives of international companies from outside Europe also came here. We can well imagine to take this as a starting signal for a regular event."

The following manufacturers took part as co-organisers: Solarworld AG, RipEnergy AG, Sundaya International, ET Solar, Hoppecke Batterien GmbH & Co KG, The Micha Design Company, Outback Power Technologies, Steca Elektronik GmbH, Studer Innotec SA, Keckeisen, Western Co., Grundfos, Southwest Windpower.

Easy monitoring with weather sensors from Lufft

Easy monitoring with weather sensors from Lufft

Professional weather sensors form the heart of large solar plants supporting their operation and performance. Lufft was the first manufacturer to combine several sensors in one housing, bringing the largest multiparameter weather sensor family with 19 members into being. Many of them are well-suited for solar site assessment and continuous monitoring. The most commonly used one is the WS600 delivering data on temperature, air pressure, wind, relative humidity and precipitation. Through its open protocol, it can easily be attached to radiation sensors e.g. from Kipp&Zonen. Other models have an integrated Silicon, Second Class or Secondary Standard radiation sensor.
