As the photovoltaic marketplace expands by the day, pvXchange declares that after just six months of business in 2010 it has already brokered more modules and inverters than during the course of the whole of 2009. The online trading platform, which buys and sells solar photovoltaic equipment, has also seen a further 1,000 participants registering online since the beginning of this year.
Data collected up until the end of June 2010 shows that pvXchange has brokered PV modules with a total performance of more than 90MW in comparison to the 75MW from the whole of the previous year. In case of inverters, an increase of almost 200% compared to the whole of 2009 has been achieved to the end of June.
“With the help of customer enquiries and goods that have already been brokered and will be delivered in late summer, we can already tell that the boom will last until the end of quarter three, at least in Germany,” said Kai Malkwitz, CEO of pvXchange.
In cooperation with its clients, pvXchange is preparing for a market situation that will potentially change from the fall onwards. Together with participating manufacturers and sales partners the sector-wide rebate system CashBack for craftman’s businesses in Europe is also being set up.
