The dena Renewable Energy Solutions Programme
The dena RES Programme was developed by the Deutsche Energie-Agentur (dena) – the German Energy Agency. This programme, co-financed by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy within the initiative “renewables – Made in Germany”, supports renewable energy companies entering new markets. Within the framework of the programme reference and demonstration projects are installed nearby designated institutions in different countries around the world. The installation is accompanied by comprehensive marketing and training programmes. These projects impressively present high-quality renewable energy technology.
The dena RES Project Mexico is part of the worldwide dena Renewable Energy Solutions Programme coordinated by Deutsche Energie-Agentur (dena) - the German Energy Agency - and cofinanced by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) within the initiative „renewables – Made in Germany“.
Within the dena RES Project Mexico KATEK Memmingen GmbH installed 6 different Photovoltaic systems at different locations in Mexico. The idea is to demonstrate renewable energy technology „made in Germany“ to show the performance of high efficiency power electronics within different applications. A photovoltaic-wind hybrid system shows the power of the combination of different sources of renewable energy.
The performance and especially the high efficiency of the system components show the power of the latest state of the art of PV technology made in germany. The StecaGrid 3000 coolcept inverters show efficiency rates of 99% under real conditions. The Steca Tarom 4545 solar charge controller can show the most modern charging technology within the project. It supplies the Steca PF 240 solar freezer with A+++ cooling technology. Also 12 V high efficiency LEDs show good performance in the solar driven street lights.
