What is Solar Energy in Germany?

Germany, despite being a sun-drenched country has been considered as one of the highest solar power outputs around the world and still possesses the most advanced and latest research about solar energy and has many new industry actors. Moreover, they’re expecting for the second wave of solar power expansion, which will soon bring success and progress for the solar technology’s full systemic integration.

For several years, Germany has been considered as the world’s top PV installer among other countries. At the end of the year 2016, Germany managed to build a total installed solar power capacity of 41.3 gigawatts (GW) which was behind China’s solar capacity.

Most solar power in Germany exclusively consists of photovoltaics (PV) systems only. Germany has only a little interest in concentrated solar power (CSP) for it does not use photovoltaics and this solar technology requires much higher solar insolation as compared to the PV system. However, there is still an experimental CSP-plant with 1.5 MW capacity which is being used solely for on-site engineering purposes only rather than for commercial electricity/power generation. This concentrated solar power is called the “Jülich Solar Tower” that is owned by the German Aerospace Center.

Moreover, in 2014, Germany managed to install about 1.5 million photovoltaic systems across the country which are ranging from small rooftop solar power systems to medium commercial and large utility-scale solar plants and farms. The largest solar farms of Germany are located in Neuhardenberg, Templin and Meuro with solar capacities of over 100 MW. Moreover, these PV technologies were accounted for an estimated 6.2 to 6.9 percent of Germany’s net electricity generation in the year 2016.

However, new installations of photovoltaic systems have slowed down steadily since the beginning of the year 2011. Also, it was estimated in the year 2017 that over 70 percent of the employment in the solar industry of the country have been lost in recent years. Solar power in Germany has gone through rough times since it has been started in the wake of Germany’s Renewable Energy Act in the year 2000. However, German companies quickly loomed to global leadership in solar power technology before a collapse in the solar industry happen and some of the companies were forced to hold their businesses.

Proponents from the Photovoltaic industry blamed the government for its lack of commitment in the said industry, while others point out that the loss of jobs in the solar sector is due to financial burden that was associated with the fast-paced launching and manufacturing of photovoltaics, which in their perspective was very unsustainable to the transition of renewable energies.

With all of these, still, the official governmental goal of Germany is to continuously improve and increase the contribution of renewable energy to the country’s overall electricity generation and consumption. By 2020, Germany is aiming for a long-term minimum target of 35 percent capacity, 50 percent by 2030 and around 80 percent power capacity by the end of 2050.

Currently, the country is significantly producing more electricity at specific times with high solar irradiation than the country’s needs, slowing down spot-market prices and exporting the country’s electricity surplus to nearby countries. In 2014, the record of exported electricity surplus reached almost 34 TWh. The decline of spot-prices in the market may raise the electricity prices for retail customers, as the expansion of the guaranteed feed-in tariff and spot-price increases as well.

As the combined share of fluctuating wind and solar energy is nearly achieving 17 percent of the national electricity mix, energy issues and problems are also being prevented and others becoming more manageable. This is because of the electrical grid adaptation, new grid-storage capacity construction, reduction of fossil fuels, altering of nuclear power plants and constructing a new generation of combined heat and power plants. Today, nuclear power and brown coal are the cheapest suppliers of electricity in Germany.

Roof Mounts Systems for Solar Panels

When installing a solar panel system, you should understand first the different types of installation processes and methods to determine what is the ideal method for your solar power system needs. Besides, examining the advantages and disadvantages of all installation types is necessary when considering solar for your residential or commercial properties to get the best return on your investment.

For today’s article, we will highlight the roof mounting system and the important things you need to know before choosing this type of solar installation method.

What is a Roof Mounting System?

A roof-mounted solar panel system is a type of installing PV modules in your house roof. This type of solar panel installation is an excellent option for both residential and commercial applications. Unlike other methods, it is way more economical and low in maintenance. Whether you are installing a solar power system to power your home or run your business, they can give you the best return on your investment.

Among the other mounting methods, roof mounting is the most popular mostly to homeowners due to its convenience and other benefits. By getting a roof-mounted solar system, you will not only take advantage of getting the best and maximum natural sunlight exposure, but you can also enjoy the perks of solar power without taking up too much space on your property, unlike the ground-mounted solar installation.

Applications Ideal for Roof-Mounted Systems?

Any residential or commercial application is ideal for roof-mounted solar panels installations. As long as the properties are naturally exposed to the sun then you can choose a roof mount system. Although it is very common to residential properties, they are also beneficial on huge facilities such as commercial buildings, hospitals, hotels, universities and campuses, or any building with a large roof that is easy to access. Besides, solar panels can be mounted on asphalt shingles, sheet metal, tile and any other type of substrate, both ideal for flat and sloped roofs. However, before your installer sets up your solar panels on your home’s roof, they would assess first the quality and current condition of your roof to avoid future problems.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Roof Mounting Systems

When planning to get a roof-mounted solar power system, you should also consider first the advantages and disadvantages of it so you know if it would fit your preference and needs.

Pros of a roof mount:

  • A roof mounting system can utilize the free space at the rooftop that otherwise wouldn’t be used to anything.
  • The initial installation cost is lower than the ground-mounted solar system.
  • It doesn’t need a huge space of land that could be used for other purposes.
  • It is beyond the reach of any unauthorized person so it is free from accessing the panels. 
  • At some point, since the solar panels are covering your roof, they can protect the roof from exposure to any bad elements.

Cons of a roof mount:

  • For shingle roofs, you need to undergo roof penetration to pass the installation requirements.
  • If your roof is a bit old, then your installer may require you to get a new roof before installation.
  • You might have to remove and reinstall panels if you need to repair or replace your roof.
  • It can add loads to your roof, and in some cases, the roof could require additional support mechanisms to carry the added weight.
  • Can damage your roof since a roof-mounted solar power system is fixed onto the roof, requiring holes and screws to attach it.

Final Thoughts

Installing roof-mounted solar panels is the common type of solar panel installations. However, it requires careful consideration of the layout of your property’s roof and the location of your property. As part of the installation process, your installers will examine if it fits your property to determine if it would fit the roof mount system installation or not.

OEM

Custom Made Solar Products OEM

OEM stands for Original Equipment Manufacturer which is commonly referred to as a company that manufactures and offers parts and accessories of items that are used as components of a product from another company. To sum it up, OEM commonly manufactures specific items on behalf of brands. Though OEM typically operates in the computer and technology industries, it also works in the solar industry.

Factories for White Label Solar Products

In the case of the solar industry, most solar companies work with solar OEMs to build and design their own solar products such as solar panels, cells, modules, etc. OEM becomes their outsourcing partner that helps them in assembling and reproducing their solar products.

Nowadays, a huge number of solar companies, particularly those large solar manufacturing companies, are partnering with outstanding solar OEMs to deliver the best quality solar products to their solar customers. Mainly, the reason is, these solar OEMs help solar manufacturers cut down their production costs since they no longer have to operate their own factories, purchase needed materials and hire labour to produce their solar products.
