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.

The NeON R module features "Back Contact" cell technology delivering an entirely black panel that is aesthetically pleasing and energy efficient. The cell's seamless, surface blends perfectly into nearly all rooftop designs while the module's electrodes are positioned on the rear of the cell. Using LG's N-type cell structure, the panels produce 365W of energy, up to 7.3kWp, compared to 5.8kWp of the p-type cell. The module's new design minimizes LID, thereby delivering a longer lifespan and increased energy output.
