Solar Market Outlook in Panama

The National Energy Plan 2015-2020 of Panama has an ambitious target of making 70 percent of the country’s energy supply coming from a renewable source within a 35-year period. This plan is part of the country’s long-term roadmap towards increasing energy efficiency and reducing carbon emissions through its energy system. 

The country has considered its renewable energy capacity and there are plenty of sources available. Therefore, they are not just looking at solar energy sources but others too like wind, geothermal, biomass, and hydropower. 

In 2019, Panama has reached 500 MW in solar PV energy. This was a huge leap from the previous year’s 176 MW solar capacity. This solar capacity rate is expected to continue growing as more solar projects are granted licenses. One of the largest projects to date is that of a Spanish firm that is looking at investing in a solar farm. 

Despite the positive outlook for the Panama solar market, there are undeniable challenges that the government is hoping to address. Among these challenges are the current power-market model (that favors conventional energy sources) and lack of flexibility measures. 

Solar Energy Equipment Supply Capacity in Panama

There are many global suppliers and distributors of solar power equipment that are serving the Panama market. This is good news as the local solar power investments are still in its infancy stage. Therefore, residential and industrial segments looking to expand its solar installations will have enough options available. 

Top 4 Major Seaports & Logistics in Panama

Panama has easy access to ports that facilitate logistics and handling of goods like solar power equipment from all over the globe. The list of the major seaports in Panama that facilitate handling of imported and exported goods include the ports in

PV Sunshades & Solar Carport

What are PV-Sunshades?

The latest and innovative way to use the shades to protect the assets and structures form the harsh sun rays is Photovoltaic Sunshades. Like any ordinary shades, extended structure is required for the PV-Sunshades. 

Photovoltaic panels integrated in the extended roofs for power production. The flat or curved surfaces of the shades absorb maximum sunlight to generate electric power.

Where are the PV-Sunshades used?

In commercial campuses the building structures and vehicles in the parking lot take the whole day of exposure to the sun. Long exposures to the sun results in degradation of the structure and increase in temperature. 

Increase in the interior temperature increases the energy cost for air conditioning. Therefore PV-Sunshades solve two problems at once. Providing shade and reducing the heating effect and contributing to the power generating and reducing energy cost. In commercial campuses PV-Sunshades find their spot in

  • Parking lot sheds: Normal shed with solar panels and electric circuits integrated. 
  • Extended roof tops for buildings: Extended roofs for protecting the front face of the building from the sunrays.
  • Electric vehicle(EV) charging points: Shed for Electric vehicles with charging points.
  • PV Sunshade curtains for glass panels: For protecting the interiors from harmful Uv rays and converting the light into power.

Advantages of PV-Sunshades & Solar Carport

  • Uses renewable energy source for producing electricity
  • Wide variety of options available bot in term sof shape size and colors
  • Low maintenance
  • High tech design for modern look
  • Light on the structure
  • Cost saving from power storage
  • Customizable according to household or commercial use

How does a PV-Sunshade work?

Photovoltaic Sun Shade modules  produce up to 170W of peak power every square meter of the surface. The working is simple like any other Solar power plant. The sunlight is absorbed by the cells and the current is sent through the circuit. 

For example in case parking lot shades, the circuit contains EV charging points. Everything is contained within the shed. Power is stored in the Lithium-Ion batteries for fast charging. Vehicles get charged while parked in the shed during the day time.

What are some top brands of PV-Sunshades?

Most of these manufacturers and suppliers deal in PV screens that are flexible and customizable for various applications.
