Solar Market Outlook in Switzerland
Switzerland is one of the fastest growing energy markets in the world. The year 2020 marked a 30% growth rate in the country’s solar market. This growth was backed by the deployment of more than 430 MW of new solar power systems (versus 330 MW of solar deployments in 2019).
The Swiss Ministry of Energy has lofty goals for the country’s solar energy market, too. Based on its “Energy Strategy 2050”, they are targeting 37.5 GW of solar PV installations by 2050.
While some markets have suffered a decline during the pandemic, it seems to have a reverse effect in the Swiss solar energy market. It seems as though the pandemic has given customers in the residential and industrial segment to push through with their renewable energy projects, which includes solar PV installations. It also signaled higher availability of capital to invest on solar projects due to limited spending.
Despite the impressive growth, the proponents of the solar energy programs in Switzerland report that the current numbers are not enough to achieve its climate target.
Solar Energy Equipment Supply Capacity in Switzerland
Switzerland is home to some of the top manufacturers and suppliers of solar energy equipment in the world. This proves advantageous to the residential and industrial consumers of solar energy supplies as they have access to high-performance solar panels, components, and parts from top brands.
Top 8 Major Seaports & Logistics in Switzerland
There are several major seaports in Switzerland providing a gateway for logistics companies to transport imported goods and various products in and out of the country. The following are the major seaports in Switzerland:
These seaports provide convenient access for transporting and handling solar power equipment and supplies to and from Switzerland.
What is a Mobile Inverter?
Mobile inverters are like regular inverters. They convert direct current into AC for domestic use. All the household appliances work on AC but the power generated from the Solar Panels is DC. To convert this power to AC Solar inverters or Mobile inverters are used.
The primary application is to convert current but Mobile Inverters have a secondary application. This is the mobility of the inverters to work in remote locations. One inverter can be used with different types of batteries. Inverter can be removed from the battery and installed into different circuits.
Where are Mobile Inverters used?
Mobile Inverters are used in Solar Power production. Installed with the Panels to convert the DC stored power into AC. These inverters can be used for high and low voltages. With Solar Panels installation is done with each panel individually.
Types of Mobile Inverters
Mobile inverters come in two configurations. High frequency Solar inverters and Low frequency Solar Inverters.
- High Frequency Inverters: These inverters are commonly used in the household for low power application.
- Low Frequency Inverters: LF mobile inverters are big in size to accommodate large transformers inside them. These inverters are used with the motors for high surge. Low frequency inverters can be used with high wattage rating appliances like ACs, refrigerators, and power tools.
How does a Mobile Inverter work?
Mobile inverters are attached to the Solar Panels to work on micro level. These inverets are attached to individual Solar Panels.The DC power is converted into AC at individual Panel level. This makes monitoring of the individual panel extremely easy.
What are some major brands of Mobile Inverters?
Enphase is making the most advanced Mobile inverters. Some other names are
- Waaree Energies.
- SMA India.
