Solar Market Outlook in Cyprus

Cyprus is abundant when it comes to solar power sources, particularly more than some parts of Europe. The solar power capacity in Europe is estimated to be roughly 7% of the country’s total electric generation (as of 2020). This puts Cyprus among the top in Europe when it comes to solar power generation (Spain is at 8%, Germany at 7%, and Greece at 5%). 

According to the Electricity Authority of Cyprus, there were more than 2000 households in Cyprus that opted to install rooftop solar panel systems during the first half of 2020. This is a surprising move despite the pandemic, which affects the global economy. At this rate, this could be the highest number of installations in Cyprus since 2014 with more than 5,000 solar rooftop installations.

The largest solar power plant in Cyprus is the Vassiliko Cement Works Photovoltaic Park and it was built in 2020 with 8 MW in its peak capacity. 

Solar Energy Equipment Supply Capacity in Cyprus

Solar panels are the main equipment used in Cyprus to generate solar power. There are plenty of suppliers and manufacturers locally but most are obtained globally or from neighboring countries in Europe.

Top 8 Major Seaports & Logistics in Cyprus

Cyprus has easy access to the sea, which gives it logistical advantage when it comes to the transport of essential solar power equipment. The major seaports in Cyprus that get the highest amount of trade activity include

  • Larnaca,
  • Pornos,
  • Limassol,
  • Latsi, 
  • Paphos.

What is a Building Integrated Photovoltaic or a BIPV?

Building Integrated Photovoltaics serves more than one purpose. BIPVs produce electricity by the piezoelectric effect and serve as protection for any structure. 

BIPVs are installed to provide shed, block sunlight, and give a modern look to any building, all this while producing electricity from sunlight.

Where is a BIPV used?

A BIPV is integrated into a structure like conventional buildings. BIPVs replace glass windows with Solar windows, parking shed rooftops with solar roofs and solar shades in place of translucent covers. All these changes make the look of any structure modern while being extremely useful.

Types of Building Integrated Photovoltaics

Solar panels are silicon-based photovoltaic cells that produce electricity from sunlight. With micro adjustments according to the application, these cells transform into BIPVs. Based on various applications, there are broadly four types of BIPVs.

 

Four types of BIPV products

  • Solar-Facades: Solar Facades’ integration in building structures keeps the noise and air pollution out and gives any building a visual identity. This all while producing green energy.
  • Solar-Window: Solar windows find their application both in residential and commercial properties. These windows look like any other windows but with solar modules.
  • Solar-Roofs: Solar roofs like that of Tesla Energy in the USA are becoming popular. In conventional rooftops, these solar tiles replace asphalt tiles. Every tile acts as an individual cell and connects in series to generate electricity.
  • PV-Sunshades: Parking lot sheds are the best example of PV-Sunshades. Additionally, these shades protect buildings from direct sunlight.

How does a BIPV work?

BIPVs use opaque or transparent solar cells connected in series to each other to give a substantial amount of current output. These photovoltaics are located in the portion of the building exposed to the sun the most.

What are big manufacturing brands of BIPVs?

Tesla Energy is one major brand in the USA backed by Elon Musk. They manufacture solar cell tiles for residential rooftops. Customers get a variety of tiles according to the required strength and size.
