Lightweight panel system supplies facility house owners with protected choices in the direction of carbon neutrality
HONG KONG SAR – Media OutReach – 5 June 2021 – The main photo voltaic photovoltaic (PV) developer and investor in carbon neutrality options, NEFIN Group, was appointed by Hong Kong Cyberport (Cyberport) to trailblaze photo voltaic PV options for its present services. The revolutionary photo voltaic panel system overcomes area and loading constraints of most buildings whereas safeguarding constructing construction.
The mission adopts a dual-purpose photo voltaic panel system comprising each conventional inflexible photo voltaic panels and versatile photo voltaic panels catered to suit completely different rooftop loading capability.
The conventional method of organising inflexible photo voltaic panels makes use of lengthy plinths or bricks to help the panels on rooftops. Nonetheless this “counter weight” set up methodology doesn’t swimsuit all present buildings. Whereas this methodology complies with worldwide and native codes and rules, the load of the system might exceed the loading restrict of a rooftop. The set up additionally entails direct bolting to the ground to securely safe the panels, which can injury the floor and the water proofing layer of rooftops.
This mission has adopted an progressive strategy to set up. By immediately fixing the versatile PV panels to the roof floor, wind-load and dead-load are considerably lowered, permitting for the complete utilisation of the obtainable structural loading of the roof and therefore, maximize the general photo voltaic plant capability. It is a handy and progressive various for companies looking for renewable vitality options and carbon neutrality.
Every of the low reflectance PV panels utilised within the Cyberport’s solar energy system carries a number of sensors that measure photo voltaic radiance and setting adjustments. These sensors acquire scientific information to measure system efficiency which will be additional utilised to develop a complicated monitoring system, facilitating the event of environmental expertise and renewable vitality in Hong Kong.
