Nature did it first: Numerous plants, like the sunfl ower for example, orient themselves towards the sun during the course of a day. It is a simple, but brilliant principle that can be applied perfectly to optimizing efficiency in solar energy systems. The reason: Photovoltaic modules that follow the sun’s path capture a higher amount of energy and therefore produce decidedly more power than modules in a fixed installation.
HIGHER EFFICIENCY WITH INTELLIGENT TRACKING
Even though photovoltaic modules’ efficiency factor has been improved considerably over the last few years, the physical ceiling has essentially been reached. A genuine leap in a systems’ efficiency can only be achieved by intelligent MLD technology. Only then can more energy be generated no matter which modules are used.
When compared to fixed systems and astronomically controlled tracking systems, the DEGER systems enjoy a clear advantage. Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE confirmed: 42.9% additional yield with the tracking systems from DEGER!
