Field Of Application
Today renewable energies are the most important key technologies in this modern world. Next to wind power, water power, geothermal energy and biomass the solar power is part and parcel of a sustainable life.The sun is the most considerable energy source of our planet with nearly unlimited capability which is going to last for the next 4 billion years.
Grid connected photovoltaic energy
In Europe, electricity from photovoltaic (PV) is usually fed into the grid. This means that the direct current electricity, produced by the solar generator (as the sum of all installed solar panels), is turned into alternating current of 230V via one or more converters. This makes solar electricity power plants of any size possible.
Private and commercial power plants
Private power plants usually achieve between 2 and 30 kWp capacity, which correlates with a 17 – 350m2 roof area. Commercial plants are not limited in size and can therefore produce over 100kWp. In principle the produced power can immediately be used by electrical appliances. The EEG (renewable energy law) ensures that nearly all the photovoltaic electricity generated in Germany is fed into the power grid. This turns every PV owner into a “little” power producer selling electricity to the utility companies.
Autonomous photovoltaic solar power plants
In Germany, autonomous photovoltaik solar power plants – standalone systems – are only used in special circumstances. These systems are especially useful when no power source or grid connection is easily available. Electric traffic signs along motorways are often powered by PV. The technology is also used in rural areas or by campers.

The French Ministry of Ecology, Sustainable Development and Energy has published the feed-in tariffs for PV installations for the last quarter of 2012 and the first quarter of 2013.
For the fourth quarter of 2012, the FiTs have been retroactively adjusted in line with the government’s new urgent measures to support the domestic solar industry. Residential installations (0-9 kW) were € 0.3415, public buildings (0-9 kW) were € 0.2279 and all other buildings (0-12 MW) were € 0.840.
This quarter, the government has set all 0-9 kW installations at € 0.3159. (more…)
