2022 Trends in Solar PV
The development of modern technology never sits still, meaning the solar world is constantly moving in and out of trends. The price of solar equipment, its efficiency and our planet’s need for renewable energy all influence which trends are leading the way.
So, how is Renusol responding to the changing solar landscape?
In discussion with Joint Forces for Solar
Renusol works closely with Joint Forces for Solar on an ongoing basis, and we recently received the company’s 2022 Solar Champion badge for yet another year.
Joint Forces for Solar facilitates the world’s largest global network for solar businesses and professionals, bringing together organisations and individuals with the shared goal of expanding the use of solar technologies worldwide.
Last year, our Managing Director, Dr Alexander Kirsch, spoke to a representative from Joint Forces for Solar about how Renusol is preparing for new industry expectations and the growing need for solar PV systems to last at least 25 years. More extreme weather conditions demand greater durability from solar panels and their mounting systems — but Renusol is confident our solutions are able to stand the test of time.
A world of constant change
As solar module technology evolves, mounting equipment has to change just as much to keep up.
The number of mounting system options available to solar professionals continues to multiply and diversify rapidly, with mounting manufacturers constantly finding new ways to cater to an industry characterised by innovation.
A US startup has designed a system that allows users to mount solar panels directly onto the ground: a new and unchartered approach to utility-scale solar projects. A German innovator has created a system that mounts bi-facial modules vertically — ideal for agricultural purposes.
What’s more, off-grid PV systems are becoming more popular in the commercial sector. And when it comes to achieving higher yields with solar, bigger is often better. Although solar modules have grown exponentially in efficiency over the past decade, the way PV technology works means that the more solar cells there are, the more energy the panels can harness — requiring fewer (albeit larger) panels on-site. And, of course, having fewer products on-site speeds up the installation process.
Renusol FS XL: bigger is better
In response to the trend of growing solar modules, Renusol has adapted our flat-roof FS system and designed the FS XL to accommodate these bigger modules.
The new FS XL is suitable for modules with widths between 1053mm and 1168mm using our new FS10-EW XL and the FS10-S XL. Our new FS18-S XL solution suits modules with widths between 990mm and 1065mm.
To adapt the existing FS solutions, we redesigned the eave support and the ridge support for the FS10-EW can now also be used in the south-facing system, saving the number of items required on-site and facilitating stocking. We adapted the base rails and streamliners to accommodate larger modules, too.
As always, all new components are available in our PV-Configurator 3.0 now.
