gridgrowth of photovoltaic grid-connected systems worldwide

Grid Parity expected in 2016

Solar Power will be competitive
Solar Power from own roof will be cheaper than grid power
(example of German power market)

Cost for Power (+ 3 % per year)

Cost for Solar Power (- 5 – 6 %per year)

Conventional and new energy supply
Conventional power supply • 50 tons C02 in 20 years • no share in power plant • no sustainability • 20,000-30,000 € electricity costs in 20 years

Energy from own roof • 35 m² supply enough electricity for a family • investment in own power plant • autonomy for the future • take pleasure in own energy

From Silicon to Solar Power

Solar Cells are tested on optical and technical quality

From Silicon to Solar Power

Solar cells get interconnected and form solar strings (cell rows)

From Silicon to Solar Power

Each module is visually inspected an then electrically tested by measuring its dark-IV characteristics.

From Silicon to Solar Power

The module assembly consisting of glass and cells, now between several layers of film, is laminated at high temperature and pressure.

From Silicon to Solar Power

The laminates are inspected and tested for exact dimensional conformity and quality.

From Silicon to Solar Power

The performance of each module is tested. The performance data is then verified with the Fraunhofer Institute ISE in Freiburg.

Which possibilities exist to profit from solar power?

The own roof

Solar power – in different dimensions

Solar power – as model of participation

Solar power – for our following generations
