Siliken has developed the ‘energybox’ PV system that offers more than 100 structural solutions for the design of any type of residential and industrial rooftops. The kit is scalable and therefore allows the covering of any rooftop size by connecting several energyBoxes in tandem. Siliken also developed a 72-cell module, which yields the same power with 20% fewer modules, therefore saving components, cutting operating costs and installation time.
With continued module price declines making-up less and less of the total BOS cost of a PV system as well as falling feed-in tariffs, improving yield while reducing BOS costs is required to enable expected customer ROI.
Developing the energyBox, Siliken selected each element to ensure the best performance, which results in a fully optimized system, both electrically and mechanically. The kit includes all of the necessary components for any residential and industrial rooftop PV installation, such as modules, structure, inverters as well as electrical components (AC/DC connection boxes, counter, cables, and connectors). Siliken also developed an online configuration tool, enabling installers to design and optimize rooftop installations, using the energyBox kit. Recently, the company launched an International Training Plan in 5 countries (Germany, Italy, Spain, United Kingdom and Belgium) to provide installers with knowledge of this application, which can be accessed through the Siliken web page.
Residential and industrial rooftops.
Siliken’s 72-cell modules are available in Europe and America, which is in line with the company’s policy to release its new technology in the countries in which it is active. The maximum power generated by the multicrystalline modules is 305Wp with +3/0% tolerance. The efficiency of the multicrystalline modules is up to 15.7%, while monocrystalline modules peak 16%. They are UL, TÜV and Intertek certified for worldwide applications. energy BOX is defined with 9, 12, 13, 16, 18, 24 and 48 modules designed for a Power Tolerance between 2 kWp and 11,5 kWp so they can be configured according to your needs by connecting them together.
