Energy with a Future: Economical, safe, independent and sustainable

You have the choice: either let your roof go unused, or earn money with it. The roofs of halls, office buildings and parking garages and also open land offer enormous potential for producing clean solar energy. And, whether you sell the electricity to a utility or use it yourself, with the right partner you can take advantage of this potential.

Director Joachim Goldbeck: “Sunshine on rooftops offers a huge amount of energy potential. Making this potential available to our clients is our goal, and we have achieved it in a multitude of solar energy developments since 2001.“

Rooftop Projects A light and well-thought-out system provides for short construction times.

Perfectly adapted to my roof

A roof is a roof? Not true. This comparison is just as false as likening disparate building uses – such as office space, manufacturing or parking. To adapt solar power projects and buildings to each other, it is necessary to analyze project-specific requirements and expectations. With an aerodynamic system or Sunovation, GOLDBECK SOLAR finds the right solution for every building profile and rooftop – safe during construction and operation, long-lasting and user-friendly. Aerodynamic The system for optimal rooftop use and quick installation, without disturbance of the roof’s waterproofing.

Sunovation An integrated substructure with minimal load points. With this system, roof membranes are protected. The system is also suitable under extreme wind conditions.

Façades und Carports Thinking ahead, where others stay behind

Not only warehouse rooftops offer ideal conditions for solar power projects. Parking garages – such as employee parking – and even building façades are appropriate for environmentally friendly power production. As an integral part of trend-setting architecture, photovoltaics contribute to the autonomy and aesthetics of a building.

Fascinating perspectives: A façade of solar modules collects solar energy and at the same time shows the innovative spirit and sustainability of a company.

They fit together well: photovoltaics and electric transportation.

Open Land and Landfills Room for Energy

Simply collect what the sun gives us: Former landfills offer ideal conditions.

When land is for all intents and purposes unusable, it can still offer ideal conditions for open land solar power production. In many European countries, these conditions can be found on former landfills. At these sites, the necessary infrastructure is already in place – there are streets, fencing and an existing connection to the electrical grid. Our systems are well-suited for use above landfill lining systems and are adaptable to varying ground conditions. We plan, build and maintain turnkey solar power projects, including security technology and grid connection.

Integrated Energy Concept Commercial thinking – responsible action Energy production With GOLDBECK, buildings and photovoltaic projects come from the same source. The systems are installed on rooftops and façades.

Beginning in the project planning phase, we help you make fundamental decisions about building economics during operation and over the long term. Building managers estimate that in about seven years the operating expenditures have exceeded the investment costs – and that this cycle repeats itself every seven years. As such, solar power provides a secure and economical source of energy from the beginning and into the future. Just as beneficial are insulation and a concept for using waste heat. Together with our clients, we look at the pros and cons of site-specific options. The recommendation for a specific solution is always tied to building use and a long-term economic analysis. With GOLDBECK SOLAR, experienced specialists are on your side.

Energy saving Insulation installed in roofs, walls and floors reduces heat losses and promotes efficient energy management.

Energy use Waste heat, such as that from many manufacturing companies, can be made usable in heating offices and conference rooms.

l Energy savings and prevention of energy loss l Energy gains through solar and geothermal power l Utilization of available energy, such as manufacturing waste heat

AC

Feed-in Tariff (EEG in Germany)

Photovoltaic

An alternating current of electricity is produced by a power inverter from a direct current. This conversion of the electrical current is necessary before the electricity can be fed into the electrical grid.

A law for the preference of renewable energy, making it an obligation of energy providers to use renewable energy sources and guarantee that a feed-in tariff be paid for a period (typically) of 20 years.

Generating electrical current from solar energy. In solar cells, mostly made from silicon, a direct current of electricity is produced from sunlight. Benefits from solar energy include clean and ecological energy production and the possibility for independence from conventional utilities and power companies.

Aerodynamic System

Fire Protection

Positive or Plus Sorting

Through intelligent engineering, an aerodynamic system uses a suction effect to secure the substructure of a solar panel to a rooftop, without additional work that affects the waterproofing of the roof.

Even under low light levels, high DC voltage can exist. It is important that solar projects are secured in the event of fire such that they can be separated from the electrical grid. Solar developments can be cut from the grid by an accessible fire department shut-off switch. As such, there would be no further danger from live electrical cables.

A positive or plus sorting with solar modules means that all modules will deliver electricity that always meets or exceeds the capacity shown on its data sheet. This results in a higher output from the solar project.

Alignment (Azimuth)

Inclination Angle

Power Inverter

In order to efficiently use irradiation from the sun, solar modules are aligned so that the most economical electrical output possible is achieved. This alignment is not always directed to the south; under specific project conditions the best alignment can be to the east or west.

The inclination angle specifies at what angle modules should be inclined from the horizontal plane. The modules can be inclined from 5° to 30°. The optimal operating efficiency is critical to choosing the best angle. Modules employed in a flat position make better use of a roof or open land area and can often be the best choice.

Solar modules produce direct current electricity that can be used directly on site by a business consumer. When the electricity is to be supplied to the power grid, it must first be converted to alternating current electricity by a power inverter.

Conversions

Module

Self-Consumption

kWp Acronym for “kilowatt peak“, the nominal power kWh Acronym for “kilowatt hour“, the output 1 kWh 1,000 watt over a one hour timeframe

A solar module consists of a series of interconnected solar cells embedded between a glass front and a watertight backing, making the cells weatherproof.

Producers that generate electricity from solar power projects can not only supply the electrical grid but also economically use the electricity on site. Through a demand-adapted configuration of the solar project, independence from conventional energy utilities can be achieved.

DC

Peak Output

Shadow Angle

Direct current is produced by solar modules. In order to be able to supply electricity to the grid, the direct current must be converted to an alternating current by a power inverter.

The maximum output of a standard solar generator is measured in kilowatts and specified as kWp (kilowatt peak). Standard test conditions STC): solar irradiation from 1,000 W/m² (in Germany at midday on a beautiful summer day), 25° C module temperature and standard atmosphere (AM 1,5).

The shadow angle describes the point at which a row of modules shades the row of modules located behind it. A small shadow angle marginally increases the relative solar output, whereas a larger shadow angle allows a better utilization of a rooftop or other area.
