Sights set on a clear goal: maximum solarisation

Solar power speicialist Fronius presented solutions for the intelligent integration of the electricity, mobility and heating energy sectors at Intersolar in Munich (Germany).

The Fronius energy storage solutions and the new Fronius System Partner programme also proved to be popular. Fronius also demonstrated their holistic approach to energy supply solutions, not least with the Fronius Lumina, the first flexible green power tariff for Germany.

“Our vision of 24 hours of sun relies on the maximum solarisation of our energy supply. For this, the intelligent use of energy sectors and their corresponding energy is equally as important as a holistic energy supply. At Intersolar we displayed a number of concrete solutions, future topics of interest and research areas. All this certainly made a big impression on the visitors,” said Martin Hackl, head of Solar Energy at Fronius International.

Be it digitisation, decarbonisation or energy sector integration, the entire energy world is undergoing huge changes. Fronius has set itself the task of thinking of solarisation in a holistic manner and we were already able to show concrete applications at Intersolar. In the industrial sector, the generation and consumption of green hydrogen often seems like a distant dream. Fronius has been researching the potential of H2 for 15 years and will open SOLH2UB – the first green H2 filling station in Austria – in the autumn of 2018. This means that Fronius can decentrally generate green hydrogen, store it, use the waste heat, and convert the hydrogen back into electricity and use it for mobility as and when it’s needed.

The mobility sector is another important field. Fronius presented a joint solution for this area with the company Hardy Barth – a solar wallbox that is intelligently coupled with a Fronius inverter. “When charging their electric car, the customer can decide whether they want to charge it quickly or optimise the energy costs as much as possible by using the excess electricity from the photovoltaic system,” said Hackl.

Among the highlights of the trade fair were the Fronius energy flow management solutions. Fronius is the leading expert in the intelligent control of heating, cooling and mobility, as well as all other important electricity consumers in a building; a position which was once again evident at Intersolar.

The importance Fronius places on partnerships was plain to see from the high number of partner solutions on display on the Fronius stand. “We aim to do the right thing and to do it right because sustainability is not just a throwaway catchphrase for us – it strongly influences our business strategy both ecologically and economically. But even the best strategy is worth nothing if you cannot count on strong, reliable partners. Only with their help can we achieve our vision of 24 hours of sun,said Hackl.
