Solar shakeout: Solarhybrid files for bankruptcy

Financials

German PV project developer, Solarhybrid has filed for insolvency in the local court of Arnsberg, Germany. In a brief statement, the company said that it had opened insolvency proceedings in relation to the assets of the company due to illiquidity issues.

Solarhybrid had recently been highly active in building a project pipeline in the US and Israel, having acquired the majority of bankrupt Solar Millenium’s US planned projects estimated to be in the region of over 2GW as well as a 201MW pipeline from another bankrupt firm in Israel, Sunday Energy.

The company had completed the largest PV power plant in Germany, FinowTower II, last year and a total project volume of 218MW in 2011.

Solarhybrid had recently claimed it would lose €4 million of investment on two projects in Germany should proposed FiT changes be introduced.

    Now that the PV industry has unquestionably entered a new growth phase, all eyes are on which technologies will win through into the mainstream of PV manufacturing. PERC, n-type, p-type bifacial, heterojunction – all have become familiar terms in the ever-growing constellation of solar cell technologies. The question is which will offer manufacturers what they are looking for in improving efficiencies and cutting costs.

    Although the past few years have proved extremely testing for PV equipment manufacturers, falling module prices have driven solar end-market demand to previously unseen levels. That demand is now starting to be felt by manufacturers, to the extent that leading companies are starting to talk about serious capacity expansions later this year and into 2015. This means that the next 12 months will be a critical period if companies throughout the supply chain are to take full advantage of the PV industry’s next growth phase.
