Recently, the International Photovoltaic Equipment Association (IPVEA) Photovoltaic Industry Association (SASIA) and
signed a bilateral cooperation agreement. The aim is to promote awareness and
share photovoltaic knowledge of the Middle East and Saudi Arabia North
Africa region PV.
The Middle East and
Africa region, especially Saudi Arabia PV market has become
increasingly important, Feb. 27, the two associations announced that the two
sides plan to cooperate in the region to promote the advantages of PV.
According to a statement released by the International Photovoltaic Equipment Association and Saudi Arabia Photovoltaic solar panels cost Industry Association said, with the localization of PV manufacturing, the two sides will discuss matters related to mutual consultation.
Photovoltaic Industry Association of Saudi Arabia the CEO BrowningRockwell added, the International Photovoltaic Equipment Association called one of the best partners to share knowledge and photovoltaic manufacturing industry experience.
Since last year, the PV monocrystalline solar panel has gradually component of the Middle East and
North Africa hot topic.
In fact, according to the Ernst & Young accounting firm released its first
2012 renewable energy country attractiveness indices disclose, when referring
to the photovoltaic power generation in the region have been carrying too much
January of this year, the U.S. research institutions GTMResearch further to make predictions, by 2015, the PV market installed capacity of countries in the Middle East and North Africa will be close to 3.5GW, so that by 2015, photovoltaic power generation to meet the 8% of the world's total electricity demand. This jointly made with the United Arab Emirates Solar Industry Association (ESIA) report, stressed that as a basic factor in the sunshine, the electricity price and demand for electricity will enable Saudi Arabia to 2015 gigawatt-level market in the Middle East and North Africa region.
The GTMResearch analyst and the author of the report, Scott Berg (ScottBurger) said: "in diy solar panels energy, obviously, the Middle East and
North Africa region in the
next five years, a significant change."
"However, in the long run,
could become the largest market in the whole region will be an important
opportunity. Savvy businesses will be able to take advantage of the opportunities
of the region in view of the strategic planning and steady development of the
local partners and supply chain. ' Saudi Arabia
Panasonic ecological solutions for energy management in
North America branch Pristine
Sun California has to develop a planned 50MW solar park.
The two companies started construction of its first solar photovoltaic park at the end of last year, and will continue to build solar projects worth more than $ 150 million until 2014.
As part of the partnership, Panasonic will be responsible for the design and construction of these solar park, and proposed facilities installed 12kW dual-axis trackers. In addition, the company will be to provide operations and maintenance services for the facility within two years of life.
Upon completion, the photovoltaic project will achieve grid connection, and all electricity generated by these facilities will be sold to the California Public Utilities Company, Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG & E).
Koshi Terakawa, President of Panasonic ecological solutions for energy management, North America, said: "50MW portfolio will allow Panasonic to showcase its construction of high-quality solar power generation system to market its new 12kW dual-axis tracker technology provided that the holders of the project on the basis of high-quality, low-maintenance and low-cost strategy, a strong return on investment, the return on investment has been used in the design of the new evolutionary products, the product throughout the day tracking Sun In view of this, the Panasonic can successfully expressed, which is the industry's first solar maximum balance sheet to support a tracker in today. "
Pristine Sun CEO Troy Helming added: "We are very proud to partner with the world's most negative reputation and one of the largest companies Matsushita cooperation. Given our large portfolio of hundreds of small public utilities projects, we have learned to choose a profit partners, such as Panasonic, to provide turnkey solutions standardization is necessary, this partnership has accelerated, and reduce the damage of the solar industry is the most important factor: project financing.
