EnBW To Build Solar Park In Baden-Wuerttemberg, Germany

EnBW Energie Baden-Wurttemberg (EnBW) is planning to build a solar park in Baden-Wuerttemberg, Germany, using 5.5MW of photovoltaic (PV) modules produced by Solarfun Power.

The solar park will be constructed on a former dumpsite and is expected to be connected to the grid in June 2010. The new project is expected to supply electricity to approximately 1,970 households and save approximately 3,990 tons of carbon dioxide per year.


Peter Xie, president of Solarfun, said: "We are pleased that EnBW decided to choose our high-quality modules for this new project in Germany. EnBW is an important new customer and we look forward to building a long-term relationship with EnBW.

Dynapower - MAXIMIZE PRODUCTION AND REVENUES WITH SOLAR PLUS STORAGE

The addition of energy storage to an existing or new utility-scale PV installation allows system owners and operators the opportunity to capture additional revenues. Traditional storage plus solar applications have involved the coupling of independent storage and PV inverters at an AC bus or the use of multi-input hybrid inverters. An alternative approach - coupling energy storage to PV arrays with a DC-to-DC converter - can help maximize production and profits for existing and new utility-scale installations. DC-Coupled Utility-Scale Solar Plus Storage leads to higher round-trip efficiencies and lower cost of integration with existing PV arrays and at the same time, opens up new revenue streams not possible with traditional AC-coupled storage, including clipping recapture and low voltage harvesting, while being eligible for valuable tax incentives.
