SNEC 2018 | PV POWER EXPOevent picture
It’s not long now until SNEC 2018 will open its doors. At the end of May the 12th International Photovoltaic Power Generation and Smart Energy Exhibition & Conference will be held in Shanghai. Recognizing the need for energy security and the problems of pollution and climate change China has taken the lead in the development of renewable energy. So it’s evident that Kipp & Zonen and its Chinese partners are glad of the opportunity to participate in this key exhibition and conference.

From May 28 to 30
Location: Shanghai, China

About SNEC 2018

At the Shanghai New International Expo Center the SNEC 2018 exhibition and conference will bring together policy makers, senior experts, market leaders, international financial institutions and advisory bodies as well as influential media to exchange views on hot topics regarding the renewable energy market, technology and applications, business models and project development. Parallel to the SNEC, the International Solar PV Plus Energy Storage Commercial Application Forum will be held. 

What can Kipp & Zonen and its partners offer you?

You probably know that Kipp & Zonen is market leader in high quality, very accurate, instruments for solar radiation monitoring. The Kipp & Zonen SMP series of smart pyranometers is a perfect match for solar energy systems as these pyranometers have digital signal processing and interfaces optimized for industrial data acquisition and control systems. Kipp & Zonen has an extensive product portfolio besides pyranometers, featuring e.g. Smart pyrheliometers (SHP1) to be mounted on SOLYS sun trackers as well as an affordable alternative for this combination: 

Our all-in one solar radiation monitoring system, RaZON+

RaZON+ is an innovative and user friendly turn-key solution providing all components of solar irradiance, such as Direct Normal (DNI), Diffuse Horizontal (DHI) and calculated Global Horizontal (GHI), as well as sunshine duration. 

Particularly interesting features of RaZON+ are the maintenance free Gear Drive sun tracker and the anti-soiling Smart pyrheliometer design.

But there is more! See below Kipp & Zonen’s latest developments, DustIQ and RT1. 

DustIQ, the revolutionary soiling alert system!

We recently introduced DustIQ, a new, revolutionary system to monitor soiling in real-time, based on unique Optical Soiling Measurement (OSM). This enables you to schedule a cleaning run when it is most beneficial and cost-effective

This smart solution is really impressive, especially in comparison with traditional systems consisting of a reference PV panel that needs to be kept clean all the time. A clear benefit of DustIQ is that it does not require any maintenance; just clean it when you clean the arrays of panels that it is monitoring.

DustIQ helps you decide when and where to clean your solar power plant and enables you to maximize its performance ratio.

RT1 rooftop PV monitoring system

In 2017 we developed RT1 the new smart monitoring system for rooftop PV. Clear advantages of RT1 are that it’s easy to install because of its unique design and plug-in temperature sensor; and that it is low-priced.

Our partners (listed below) will be delighted to meet you!

Solar Sky: booth W5-802
Intell-Sun: booth W2-830
Beijing Techno Solutions: booth W2-127/128

They will be pleased to receive you at their respective booths, answer your questions and assist you in resolving any measurement issues you may have. They will appreciate it very much if you would share your insights on solar monitoring and on your (future) requirements with them. Your feedback is essential for Kipp & Zonen in order to meet the expectations of the solar industry.
