Intersolar 2009: SCHOTT Solar presence solely devoted to quality

Post Time:Mar 23,2009Classify:Company NewsView:496

Solar energy is a safe investment – provided one relies on high quality modules
Stars on the booth: SCHOTT Poly 300® Double Glass Module, SCHOTT ASI 100® Thin-Film Module, SCHOTT InDaX® V 175 for roof-integration

This year, SCHOTT Solar AG will be presenting its new high quality modules at the industry’s leading exhibition, Intersolar. All of the products that SCHOTT Solar will be introducing at Intersolar are the result of the company’s more than 50 years of experience. Visitors to booth 460 in hall A1 will be able to learn more about the flagships of the SCHOTT Solar portfolio: the high-performance double glass module SCHOTT Poly 300, the SCHOTT ASI 100 thin-film module, as well as the SCHOTT InDaX V 175 for integration into roofs. Building-integrated solar systems based on ASI Glass® standard products are yet another main focus. The Intersolar 2009 takes place from May 27 – 29, 2009, at the New Munich Trade Fair Center.
“Solar energy is an attractive investment, especially in uncertain times, because one invests in real assets and receives guaranteed compensation from the government for twenty years. But this will only work out at the end if the modules continue to perform for this long and consistently deliver the same high output,” advises Dr. Martin Heming, the company’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO).
SCHOTT Solar developed a special double glass technology that offers extremely high durability against severe weather conditions, strong suction and pressure loads, but also high ammonia or methane contamination levels in agricultural environments. The new SCHOTT Poly 300 combines 50 years of experience in encapsulation technology with the most advanced cell technology for generating sustained yields at extreme locations.
Thanks to how well it reacts to scattered light and its integrated wiring, the SCHOTT ASI Series, on the other hand, fits onto roofs just perfectly; even those with extreme angles of inclination or that don’t exactly face south. SCHOTT Solar managed to increase the efficiency of the latest ASI thin-film module quite considerably from 87 watts to 100 watts of stabilized nominal output in only a short time. The durable aluminum frame makes them very easy to install. Due to the low operating voltage of 17.5 volts, SCHOTT ASI modules allow for efficient string wiring and are also suited for use in remote applications and 12 volt systems.
With the SCHOTT InDaX V 175 in-roof modular system, solar electricity modules no longer need to be mounted on top of an existing roof – the modules themselves are the roof. Here, they generate solar electricity and protect the house against wind and bad weather at the same time. The system is extremely sturdy and is considered to be a full-fledged roof under regional building regulations, due to its specially hardened front glass. The modules feature a condensation drain and are also back ventilated. In other words, they serve as a normal roof that is also capable of generating electricity.
With its ASI Glass® products, SCHOTT Solar offers a wide variety of standard modules especially for building integration.
