Bosch presents innovative photovoltaic and storage solutions

  • Performance-optimized modules from Bosch Solar Energy
  • Intelligent storage solution from Bosch Power Tec
  • Photovoltaic and solar heat hybrid module from aleo solar

Lyon – Bosch will be presenting innovative photovoltaic and storage system solutions from Bosch Solar Energy, Bosch Power Tec and aleo solar at the Renewable Energy Exhibition EnR 2013 in Lyon, France (February 19-22). The EnR trade fair is an important international industry meeting place for renewable energies and innovative environmental technology.

Bosch Solar Energy is presenting two new performance-optimized series of modules with innovations which propel average module output to the following values:

  • 260Wp for the silver c-Si M60 modules
  • 255Wp for the black c-Si M60S modules

The use of a new, highly transparent encapsulation film and the new antireflex coating for the front glass ensures higher output. This provides much more exposure to light, enabling peak outputs of up to 270 watts. Initial prototypes with a new cell generation already boasted peak outputs of roughly 300 watts. In addition, innovative cell connectors with a large cross-section reduce series resistance in the new modules and simultaneously ensure greater light utilization, which also increases output. An extended mounting area which now enables vertical and horizontal module mounting with a bearing capacity of up to 5400 Pa provides added installation flexibility. Reliability tests far beyond the requirements of the IEC 61215 and 61730 standards have demonstrated the great durability and long-term sturdiness of Bosch solar modules.

Intelligent storage solution provides households with temporary freedom from the power grid

Bosch Power Tec is presenting the intelligent, integrated VS 5 Hybrid energy management and storage solution as an perfect addition to private photovoltaic systems. The VS 5 Hybrid stores the solar energy generated over the course of the day and makes it available when the sun is down or only shining weakly. It is based on high-performance lithium-ion batteries with a storage capacity of 8.8 to 13.2 kWh. This Bosch storage solution grants users up to 100% independence from the public power grid during the summertime. Moreover, the intelligent energy management increases the proportion of solar power consumed internally in a four-person household from 30 to up to 75 percent or more – without changing the consumption behavior. Bosch Power Tec is also presenting cutting-edge string inverters.

KIT 9000 solution for new buildings and hybrid module from aleo solar aleo solar is presenting the Solarkit 9000, which is specifically tailored to meet the RT2012 energy requirements for new buildings. The complete building integration system meets the new regulatory requirements and consists of modules, an inverter and frame system for integration into buildings. It can be mounted on any surface of a new building, makes an ideal complement to gas or electric heating and achieves the primary energy coefficiency target at the same time. aleo solar is also presenting its new hybrid module, which combines photovoltaics and solar heating.

You will find all of the above mentioned products from Bosch Solar Energy, Bosch Power Tec and aleo solar at EnR Booth F 50 in Hall 4.
