Position, current market watch
The use of solar modules has been growing over the past decades and it's widely expected that it will grow even stronger over the decades to come. This trend is worldwide, from poor underdeveloped civilizations to developed western countries. The United Nations Climate Conference in Paris even calls for immediate political action.
The current PV Module market is dominated by Asian manufacturers, some of which produce average or low quality products and B-grades commonly available and sold to (non expert) end-users. In the solar industry there is a growing demand for premium quality.
Established project developers are looking for EU quality/manufactured PV Modules as they want to avoid future (reputation) risk and further reduce the carbon footprint of their solution. However, such products are hardly available or not affordable in the EU nowadays.
In addition to this quality gap, by shipping PV Modules from Asian production sites to end-users in Europe, a lot of logistical and energy costs are wasted. Another significant portion of this shipped volume will be damaged or considered to be lost for the actual harvesting of solar power.
The Energyra approach
That is why Energyra will bring back PV Module manufacturing to Europe and build a new production facility in the Netherlands. We use the most innovative solar cell and module concept and apply the highest degree of robotisation. Based on EU technology, exclusively secured by the commitment of leading EU R&D and equipment partners.
In order to be able to offer customers a full range of modules, with peak power values ranging from 290 to 320 Wattpeak (Wp), Energyra will produce several types of modules. Production will start exclusively with monocrystalline modules.
Performance figures will grow further due to the ongoing development of our technology and strategic and sourcing partners in 2019 and on. This is not just another company claim. It's our promise. To you!
