Phaesun Off-Grid News - August 2020

Solar cooling in Kenya:
As part of the "Powering Agriculture" initiative, we were able to take important steps in the field of solar cooling in Kenya together with the Universität Hohenheim and Solar Cooling Engineering.
We are pleased that we can now build on this with the developpp project "PV Cool Kenya". In the next two years we will install demonstration plants for cooling agricultural products in Kenya!
The final report of "Powering Agriculture" is available here:

A first successful test is done. Julien built a solar bike for the project The Sun Trip using our SunPower SPR-E-Flex modules.
Thanks to the solar panels, he drove 130 km in one day with 1000 meters of altitude, headwind and complete camping equipment. This wouldn't have been possible without the solar support!
The project continues with a build-up of a second module on the bike. We'll keep you posted.

Phaesun innovation managers:
In the context of the InnoDiZ project, Innovation Management in the Digital Age, Sabine, Markus and Valentin completed their further training as innovation managers. Congratulations!
InnoDiZ is a 36-month research project between the years 2019 and 2021, which is carried out together with the IMU from Augsburg and other project partners.


"Best-Practice Training Centre":
For a new project: "Best-Practice Training Centre" for PV hybrid systems, Phaesun provided the technical planning for the system, an installation briefing and on-site installation supervision on the roof.
The foundation stone for the project has now been laid, the PV system has been built on top of a 199-year-old half-timbered house. After completion (probably in 2022 - when the house will be 200 years old!), customers from all over the world will be able to receive practical training and education "live" on a system. Furthermore, it is to be shown that an old house can be renovated energetically in such a way that it becomes independent of an external energy supply!
The 18.72 PV system currently has 9.72kWp (27 Phaesun solar modules 360Wp) connected to an SMA STP10000TL. As soon as the chimney is gone, the south roof will be extended by another nine Phaesun solar modules a` 360Wp and connected to a SMA STP5000TL.
Currently, the north roof is still being equipped with 12 Phaesun modules and connected to another STP5000TL. Further steps will follow, depending on further construction and building renovation and expansion.
