Ground-mounted PV Power Station
While being integrated into wearable and portable devices that are out of the reach of crystalline silicon, Hanergy's thin film solar technology is also used at ground-mounted PV power station like crystalline silicon does. Across the globe, Hanergy has been investing in ground-mounted PV power stations in a variety of inhabitable places, such barren mountains, wasteland, the Gobi Desert, and tidal flats. The solar cells adopted at such power stations are Hanergy thin-film products with self-owned intellectual property rights. Featuring low energy consumption, zero pollution, excellent low light performance, and competitive cost advantage, Hanergy solar cells keep up with trends in ground-mounted PV power station. Thus the technology helps the hinterland get more clean energy with better economic and social benefits while ensuring the effective use of idle land. To date, Hanergy has signed contacts for building ground-mounted PV power stations with a total installed capacity of over 10 GW at home and abroad. A number of such projects has been finished and connected to the grid.
Hydro-PV complementarity refers to a power system coordinating the operation of PV power stations and hydropower plants. By virtue of the solar-hydro complementarity, the quick adjustment of water turbine generator sets, and reservoir regulation, the system fine-tunes the active power output of a PV power station for hydro-PV complementary power generation. Such a system results in a smoother and steadier generator output curve, a higher operational efficiency of hydropower, and better economic benefits to hydropower businesses.
Installing a solar power system above fish ponds means better land use for thin-film power generation, during which the components work as a screen against the sun. It adds extra power benefit to the fish ponds while facilitating fish growth.
