my-PV's distribution in Northern Europe

When talking about renewable energy and the Scandinavian countries, the first thing that comes to one's mind is wind energy. There is a good reason for this, as the areas are highly suitable for wind energy. But there are also great possibilities for using solar energy. In fact, the Nordic climate is well suited for photovoltaics and photovoltaic performance is already substantially proved, both in test as well as in practice. Particularly in summer, there is light and irradiation almost around the clock.  Since the sun is shining for many hours each day during summer, good yields can be achieved with a photovoltaic system. Moreover, it is well known that PV modules perform greatly with strong irradiation and simultaneously cool temperatures.

According to the EU Market Outlook for Solar Power 2020-2024, the Nordic countries also have a good average with regard to photovoltaics per capita. For example, Estonia ranks 8in Europe with 305 watts per inhabitant and Denmark ranked number 9 in Europe with 290 watts per inhabitant.

With gas prices doubling and the growing focus on renewable heat, my-PV products continue to gain traction. The products are available in the Nordic and Baltic regions via BayWa r.e. Solar Energy Systems available. BayWa is proactive in the market to promote the uptake of renewable energy with various webinars, exhibitions, etc.

The account managers responsible for Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Estonia and Lithuania can be found on the BayWa Solar Distribution website.

There you will also find the respective contact persons for the individual countries.

One of the most popular products in the Nordic countries is our ELWA: With this self-sufficient isolated solution, the customer does not have to deal with the administrative procedures and permits that are usually required in the case of grid-connected photovoltaic systems. This is an enormous advantage: The customer's own hot water is largely prepared in a solar-electric manner and the customer still can avoid the often large, administrative hurdles when registering a grid-connected photovoltaic system.
