MLD tracking technology prevails worldwide trend towards smaller solar energy facilities

DEGERenergie is registering a worldwide rise in interest in solar energy generation for self-supply with MLD tracking. At the EU PVSEC in Hamburg, DEGERenergie presents its newest innovation, the single-axis TOPtraker 8.5 system with an elevation angle of 20 degrees. This system will also be launched soon in the USA. With more than 45,000 systems installed worldwide, DEGERenergie is the global market leader for solar tracking systems.

The availability of the single-axis TOPtraker 8.5, with an elevation angle of 20 degrees, was particularly designed for the requirements of the US market, and it is planned to be available for late summer 2011. The TOPtraker 8.5 is the smallest system DEGERenergie offers. Depending on the location, the system is optionally available with an elevation angle of 20 or 30 degrees, and suitable for installation on buildings. The system is designed for a module area surface of 8.5 square meters and it can be operated with all available solar modules. Depending on the module type, the rated power is between 500 and 1,300 Wp.

It became evident at the Intersolar North America, in San Francisco, in July 2011, and experts from the photovoltaics sector expect the USA to turn into one of the strongest-growing solar energy markets within the next five years. Two trends triggered by the energy turnaround worldwide are particularly apparent here: First, the solar sector is moving from large-scale solar parks towards smaller and medium-sized solar power plants; second, the interest in systems for the generation of solar energy for self-supply is increasing.
