Panama

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

Solar Windows

What is a Solar-Window(BIPV)?

Solar Windows are the most common type of BIPVs. Used all over the world in residential buildings, houses, and commercial units. Solar Windows transform any building into a green building. With these windows, the cost of energy is tremendously reduced. Most off-grid houses use Solar Windows for power production.

Where is a Solar-Window used?

Solar Windows get used instead of ordinary glass windows: High-rise apartment buildings, office spaces, off-grid homes, regular homes, and high-tech modern homes.

Advantages of Solar-Windows over glass windows

Solar Windows surve a multitude of purposes when installed. Here are some of the examples

  • Beneficial for tall buildings where rooftop PV installation is not possible
  • Solar Panels on the windows convert light into electricity
  • They Insulate the interiors from harmful UV rays
  • The acoustic of the interiors is maintained
  • Large windows and skylights have illuminating effect on the interiors
  • Any building with Solar Windows becomes a green eco friendly building
  • Cost savings on Energy bills
  • Best for off grid houses
  • Lesser carbon emission due to the use of renewable sources of energy
  • Improves the overall look of any building

How does a Solar-Window work?

Solar Windows work just like any other solar panel or cell. Instead of glass in the windows, Solar Panels are integrated. Angle and position of the solar panels within the window frame is decided by the location direction of the windows to get the maximum sun exposure.

Sunlight passes through the Solar Cells and Solar concentrators. Photons are induced in the cells releasing the letrones in the circuit to make the current flow. All the power get stored in the batteries for use with the inverters.

Big brand names in the Solar-Window market?

Solar Window manufacturers make Solar glass that is integrated into the normal window frames. Some big Solar Glass manufacturers in the USA are:

  • Flabeg Technical Glass
  • Abrisa Technologies
  • Ditto Sales, Inc.
  • S.I. Howard Glass Co., Inc.
  • Pegasus Glass
  • Sinclair Glass
  • GrayGlass
