UK premiere for Futura Siplex: Donauer Solartechnik presents new mounting system at Solar Power UK

At Solar Power UK 2011 in Birmingham from 26 to 28th October, Donauer Solartechnik will be presenting its new mounting frame: the Futura Siplex system with snap-in functions. It can be used on all roof types. The specialist wholesale company developed the system as part of its own INTERSOL range.

"Futura Siplex is a snap-in system that is particularly easy for installation technicians to work with for roof-top projects", explains Annett Boland, engineer from the development department of Donauer. "The pre-assembled components reduce the installation time by up to 20 percent compared to previous mounting systems."


With this system, Donauer Solartechnik is introducing pre-assembled cross connectors and module clamps that snap into the transverse rails using special clips and automatically lock in place. The system is particularly easy to install on tiled roofs. The transverse rail system can also be combined with all roof fastening elements supplied by Donauer Solartechnik. It offers the highest possible reliability thanks to the excellent stability of the particularly light transverse rails.

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.
