PV South Africa Market Update and Plants Map unveiled today

PV Insider's South African market update and projects map provides an exclusive breakdown of Rounds I and II of South Africa's Renewable Energy Independent Power Producer Programme (REIPPP), plus the size and location of 27 PV projects under development in this region.

Researchers at PV Insider have completed work on the PV South Africa Market Update and Projects Map 2013, which provides an exclusive breakdown of the progress made in Rounds I and II of the REIPPP. Furthermore, the industry guide examines the impact that delays to Round III of the REIPPP have had on the solar-PV market in South Africa.


The projects map details the size and location of 27 PV plants that successfully won bids in Rounds I and II of the REIPPP and it also provides global horizontal irradiance data for South Africa and the projects are overlaid to show their location on the GHI map.

Global horizontal irradiation in South Africa varies between 1600 to 2300 kWh/m2, and the PV Plants Map South Africa includes GHI data collected from 1994-2012. This has been made available to the industry to enable a better understanding of South Africa's highly esteemed solar resources, and to give developers the tools they need to select the best location to develop plants in this region

SolarEdge Technologies - Solar Inverters, Power Optimizers and PV Monitoring

The SolarEdge PV inverter combines sophisticated digital control technology with efficient power conversion architecture to achieve superior solar power harvesting and best-in-class reliability. The fixed-voltage technology ensures the solar inverter is always working at its optimal input voltage over a wider range of string lengths and regardless of environmental conditions. A proprietary data monitoring receiver has been integrated into the inverter and aggregates the power optimizer performance data from each PV module. This data can be transmitted to the web and accessed via the SolarEdge Monitoring Portal for performance analysis, fault detection and troubleshooting of PV systems.
