TiSUN, an Austria-based solar thermal specialist, has installed its first solar thermal project in Albania.

In January 2013 the company installed a TiSUN solar thermal system in the city of Tirana which will provide hot water for the German Society for International Cooperation.

Michael Reinshagen, TiSUN’s Sales Manager for the Baltic States, South and Eastern Europe, explained that some of the South East European countries including Albania have an extremely high number of sunny days a year and therefore offers great potential for the use of solar energy.

For Albania, the use of renewable energy is also expected to better position the country in its bid to join the EU in 2014.

The Baltic and South East European regions are key solar markets for TiSUN. In 2012 the company implemented a number of projects in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Ukraine, Bosnia, Slovenia and Serbia.

    Looking back, 2014 was a year of convalescence for a PV industry still battered and bruised from a period of ferocious competition. End-market demand continued apace, with analysts towards the end of 2014 predicting the year would see between around 45 and 50GW of deployment. That has begun to feed through to the supplier end of the market, with all the main manufacturers announcing capacity expansions in 2015 and further ahead.

  • Manufacturing The Solar Future: The 2014 Production Annual

    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.
