Sharp Energy Solutions Europe Present Impressive Array At Intersolar 2017

News

Intersolar plays host to over 900 providers of products and solutions for photovoltaics, solar thermal technologies and solar plants, grid infrastructure and solutions for the integration of renewable energy, and receives well over 50,000 visitors. making it the perfect showcase for products and services.

Sharp Energy Solutions Europe' stand this year covered everything from an award-winning 48-cell back-contact module to the easy to use "Smart Chap" energy management platform.

The star of the booth was the Sharp NQ-R256A (256 Wp), which is a mono-crystalline PV module with an efficiency rating of 19.8 per cent. In Japan, the module has already been awarded the prestigious "Good Design Award". Visually, the Sharp NQ-R256A module has a discreet matt black finish, while reflections are minimised thanks to the electrical contact wires being on the underside of the panel. What’s more, it uses anti-reflection glass to make the panels even less conspicuous when in situ. 

Due to its size, 1318 x 980 x 46 millimetres and weighing only 17 kilograms, the module is easy to install, especially in difficult installation conditions - mounted either upright or horizontally. The large number of contacts on the back of the cell ensures efficient energy dissipation, while the back-contact technology increases the amount of solar radiation used, enabling maximum performance on a minimal roof surface area.

Smart Chap Energy Management System



Info

Elsewhere on the stand- the Sharp Smart Chap modular home energy management system. The Smart Chap energy manager includes control over battery storage to save energy produced during the day, which can be used efficiently at any time, even at night. This means that during the summer months, consumers can expect to reduce their dependence on the public electrical grid by up to 95 per cent, with an overall annual average of up to 80 per cent.

Sharp Smart Chap’s selling proposition is that it is an open platform, allowing end users to connect a wide range of hardware, from battery storage, inverter, heat pumps, etc. made by various manufacturers, for the most flexible setup possible. Also, the system's capacity and performance are scalable simply by connecting multiple battery storage devices or battery inverters.

The Smart Chap app for Android and iOS devices means the system can be used to monitor and control energy flow in the home at any time and from any location. The app also displays the amount of electricity the solar system is producing, the battery's charge status, and the energy consumption level in the house.
