PROINSO opens new branch in Japan and participates in PV EXPO 2013 in Tokyo

• The new branch in Tokyo is joining the network of global branches supplying PV solar products. • At PROINSO they have increased trade in Asia since 2011, with branches in Australia, China, India, Southeast Asia and now Japan.

• After gaining entry to the Japanese market, PROINSO is participating in the PV Expo 2013 (Stand E45-24), to be held from 27 February to 1 March 2013 in Tokyo, with the aim of contacting potential customers and dealers in Japan. Over 125,000 people from 65 countries are expected to visit the trade show.

• In the wake of the Fukushima nuclear disaster, Japan turned to renewable energy sources, which are to gain in importance in the future.
• In late 2012, Japan had 7,000MW in installed solar power. PROINSO considers this country to be a strategic market.

14 February 2013. PROINSO, a global leader in the supply of PV solar products, has set up a new branch in Tokyo to begin operating in the Japanese solar PV market. Japan's solar PV market has a huge growth potential, because the country is turning to renewable energy.

Following the opening of the new branch, PROINSO will be one of the exhibitors at the PV Expo 2013 (Stand E45-24), to be held in Tokyo from 27 February to 1 March. The company's aim is to meet and reach business agreements with customers and installers, in a trade show that is expected to attract as many as 125,000 visitors from 65 countries and 1,890 exhibitors from home and abroad.

The new branch in Japan is in line with PROINSO's strategy to focus on new international markets, since the international business currently accounts for 88% of the company's total sales. In the wake of the Fukushima nuclear disaster, Japan implemented feed-in tariffs to promote renewable energy, expecting resulting drops in demand for nuclear power.

Besides, Japan is in the top-five ranking for countries with the largest PV solar capacity – 7,000MW installed as of late 2012. The market is expected to grow considerably over the next years, in a country where 800,000 new homes are built on an annual basis and where solar PV installations are 80% residential and 20% non-residential.

In the 2013-2016 period, Japan is expected to install about 13,000MW, thus reaching a total 20,000MW in 2016, while China, the uncontested leader in Asia-Pacific, is estimated to reach 21,100MW of installed capacity by the same year.

PROINSO's new branch in Japan adds to the network the company has in Greece, Italy, US, UK, Spain, Canada, China, Australia, India and Thailand.

Having delivered over 1,100MW in PV solar products, PROINSO has an International Network of Qualified Installers comprising 2,295 members around the world.//

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

What if you could maximize the Ground Coverage Ratio (GCR) on your next project and not have to worry about the complicated variables that come with a tracker system? With a low tilt and clearance design, Dahlia® has the highest GCR of any fixed-tilt system in the marketplace. The system is available in three tilt options (7.5, 10 and 12.5 degrees) and designed to accommodate any sized PV module. The lightweight system is engineered with fewer components, several of which are shipped to job sites pre-assembled. This design feature reduces freight costs and rapidly trims the amount of on-site installation time required to complete construction. Maximizing PV coverage on a site can lead to an increase of production, which creates greater financial return for project owners. Over 100 MW of Dahlia® projects have been deployed across the United States, in regions of variable snow and wind loads. How much can Dahlia® cover and save you on your next project?
