PEWA 2013: IBC SOLAR presents innovative solutions for energy supply

IBC SOLAR takes part in Africa’s largest trade fair for holistic power and energy businesses

Bad Staffelstein, Germany, March 21, 2013 – IBC SOLAR AG, a leading global leader in photovoltaic systems, will present its innovative products and solutions at Power & Electricity World Africa 2013 (PEWA) in Johannesburg, South Africa on April 9 and 10. In the “Clean Energy Floor”, Booth H24 visitors will gain insights in IBC SOLAR’s comprehensive portfolio of products and services.  IBC SOLAR will also share its expertise of more than 30 years of experience in the solar energy market in two seminars at the trade fair.
IBC SOLAR works with clients to develop customized solutions to meet their specific electricity demands. Whether grid connected or systems for independent power supply  - IBC SOLAR’s solutions range from residential to large-scale applications. Special focus lies on systems for self-consumption.  True to its commitment to sustainability and environmental conservation, IBC SOLAR’s technology provides solutions for long-term, continuous  and cost-effective energy supply. This includes hybrid systems that combine PV modules with diesel engines as well as energy storage systems. In turn, this allows individuals, businesses and municipalities from all backgrounds independence from expensive, pollutant and unreliable power sources.
For investors and manufacturing plants, IBC SOLAR acts as an EPC contractor covering all aspects of a photovoltaic project - especially the engineering planning, procurement and construction supervision. For many of its projects, IBC also provides long-term maintenance and quality control, which ensures a fast return on investment.
In the field of distribution business IBC SOLAR does not only deliver complete systems but also focuses on building long-term relationships with local installers by providing extensive services and support.

Founded in 1982, IBC SOLAR has an unrivalled knowledge and experience in the PV market. Its proven success rate is seen in a wide-variety of solved challenges from large-scale solar parks to rooftop solar systems. These systems can be used to optimize the energy consumption of companies, which the Valpré (a product of the Coca-Cola Company) bottling plant in Heidelberg, South Africa demonstrates. In 2011, IBC SOLAR and its local partner installed a photovoltaic system with a capacity of about 30 kWp. For this project, IBC SOLAR was responsible for the delivery of modules and system monitoring, as well as the commissioning of the system. The photovoltaic array will allow the bottling plant to be more independent of the local electricity grid, while reducing CO2 emissions as well. Most recently, IBC SOLAR celebrates success after completing four large-scale ventures in India. Such global, complex projects exemplify the worldwide competencies IBC SOLAR can offer clients.
While IBC SOLAR already offers technical advice and training to engineers and PV-installers, the company wants to share its practical knowledge and experience with the energy business at PEWA. At the trade fair, two presentations or “solar-seminars” will be hosted by experts from IBC SOLAR. The first lecture will explain “Quality in Photovoltaics - How to secure revenues for a long-term investment” (April 9th @ 11am, Room E). The second presentation will focus on “IBC SOLAR: innovative system design” (April 10th @ 11am, Room E).
