Omnik New Energy (Omnik for short), a Chinese-German joint venture has released a new series of solar inverters. Its new products include single phase, three phase and hybrid inverters. By launching these new products, the solar energy company aims to help develop the distributed solar PV (photovoltaic) industry which is expanding across the globe.

These newly-launched products have capacities ranging from 1 kW to 20 kW, and their difference from traditional inverters is that they don’t need transformers except for one single phase inverter specially made for Japanese users. These products are specially designed and manufactured for residential and commercial solar PV systems which are known as distributed PV power systems.

Aiming to expand its UK solar market, the solar energy company also participated in the Ecobuild 2015 exhibition held in London from March 3 to 5, 2015. During the three days in London, the general manager of Omnik Franz Zhao appeared and communicated with those who visited its booth for relevant information consultation. At the exhibition Omniksol-2k-TL2, Omniksol-3k-TL2-S, Omniksol-1k-M and other newly-launched inverters were displayed.

Headquartered in Suzhou, China, Omnik is an innovative high technology solar company, specializing in R&D and manufacturing and marketing PV inverters, with offices in the UK, the Netherlands and Australia. Outside China Omnik mainly focuses on selling inverters, while in China the company sells inverters and builds distributed solar PV systems for local customers.

Solar drones bring a new phase of utilizing solar energy

Solar Impulse 2 is still flying on its mission around the world. This is a typical example for taking advantage of solar energy other than utilizing it to generate power and heat water. Drones are also one of the greatest inventions of mankind, and so far they have been combined with solar power. A new creation comes: solar drone.

Social media giant Facebook hopes to bring the internet infrastructure to the world and has started a solar drone project. It is reported that a prototype of this drone (Aquila) has already been tested somewhere of the UK.

Together with Facebook, the biggest search engine company Google acquired a U.S. unmanned-aircraft solar developer Titan Aerospace in April 2014. This suggests the search engine also hopes to develop business in the solar drone field.

Why are they now turning to solar energy? They haven’t officially released any good reason for this yet, but this is a tendency for solar energy development. The current reality is energy shortage is threatening us, air pollution is protruding mainly because people have burned large amounts of biofuels, and solar energy is free, clean and usable now.

As these projects take into effect, more global citizens will see what solar energy really is and will probably turn to solar. In fact, its effects have been proven by solar power plants, home solar PV systems, solar water heaters and so on.

Apart from all these reasons, solar energy has also been proven successful in power generation. Previously people thought it was too expensive for them to turn to solar power, while today the situation has completely changed, for its power price is even cheaper than that generated by biofuels.

Coming back to solar drones, we find they are seemingly suggesting something to us. Protecting the environment will continue, cheaper power prices are in high demand, and innovative ways for the further development of our world are extremely necessary. Thus, solar drones will become new leading devices that can transform our world, and be able to encourage more people to go solar and reduce air pollution.

India to Create 1 Million Jobs and Boost PV Inverter Market by Solar Ambition

India has been in unfavorable conditions until recently when its moves become inspirational as it targets to create miracles in the solar energy industry. As Modi took office, all kinds of projects about solar power have been put into practice or are being practiced. Recently news reports from the country have announced that India has set up a solar energy ambition of getting 100 GW of solar energy by 2022. More astonishingly, it is estimated that the goal will create 1 million job positions in India.

In the country many areas are out of reach for the national utility grids, and so these areas have been living in the dark. If some large-scale solar power projects can be built in the country, numerous families having no access to electricity will be able to rid of blackouts at night. On the other hand, when these projects are to be built across the country, human labor will be needed, and so jobs will be created. In detail, the jobs mainly come from project planning, construction, installation and operations.

By setting such a goal, India will not only create 1 million jobs to power the country’s economy and root out its high unemployment rate, but also it will boost the PV inverter market in the coming years. The basic knowledge is solar power doesn’t generate itself, it needs solar panels to convert sunlight into direct current and then PV invters to turn direct current to alternating current, which sustains each family’s power needs. In this process large numbers of PV inverters will be manufactured to do the converting job along with innumerable solar panels.

Currently there are two different situations found in the inverter market in India. One is these photovoltaic inverters will only be used in solar power plants. If so, string, single phase and three phase inverters will be produced to meet the needs. Simultaneously, other types of inverters specially made for these factories must be made. This is the majority of the total inverter market share. The other half share is manufacturers inside the country should also produce microinverters, which are the new invention in recent years. Their specialty lies in that they are only suitable for home power systems. By using these inverters, more electricity will be generated. This requires large sums of money of investment, which most Indian civilians cannot bear at all. Today, the quota for this part is very small but serves as the other half.

In addition, the media report that India hopes to make contributions to climate change by boosting its solar power. The typical example is that Modi and Obama have solidified their common commitment to fighting against climate change.

Solar Power Revolution in India to Be Successful?

As climate change and environmental issues become more and more serious, a solar power revolution is beginning to reshape the world. The UK, the Netherlands and the US have become the giants in this new industry, but how about India, a country that doesn’t seem to be so modern?

The Guardian reports that India’s current prime minister Narendra Modi has an ambitious plan of installing PV power systems in the country. Its current power minister thinks it is not a difficult task to add 10,000MW of solar power a year. This is a large number. For India, can this goal be realized as the minister has publicly said?

The fact is that India today is home to the biggest solar farm in Gujarat in Asia. India’s current renewable energy power capacity is 31,692.14MW, and its solar power capacity is 2,900MW. By this comparison, you must learn how much solar power’s role is in the country and how the country treats PV solar power. In addition, under the supportive solar power installation advocacy from its leaders, solar power begins booming in this developing country.

Besides, the government’s energy policies have also changed somewhat. Mercom Capital Group’s CEO Raj Prabhu says India has changed its policy about coal and ended its anti-dumping policy. According to him, the supreme court has suspended the coal-exploiting license, and more coal needs importing, which makes its cost much higher than ever. At the same time India’s power supply is not enough to sustain the whole nation’s power consumption. Under these beneficial conditions, India’s solar power seems to have a prosperous future.

However, there are still some unpleasant reports. For example, the World Bank’s index reports that India’s economy rank has fallen from 131 to 142. The other true fact is that India’s 80% of crude oil still depends on import. The two things cannot abruptly announce that India’s solar power plan will be affected, while it is possible that this ambition will be influenced.

Can China’s New Energy Ambition Become Reality?

China has set up a goal of quadrupling its renewable energy by 2030. No wonder, this is an ambition that it is difficult to achieve for China, a country which has been known as the largest coal producer and user in the world. The problems that follow are its CO₂emission and other forms of greenhouse gases. So, can China really realize its dream of quadrupling renewable energy by 2030? Yes, we have need to have a discussion about this issue.

To achieve this ambition, China has said its will install relevant policies and regulations. On June 13, China’s president Xi Jinping said his administration was working out new guidelines to change its energy production and consumption. At the same time he also stressed that the government would revise the country’s out-of-date regulations made for energy. In addition, the president also called to cooperate more with Russia, Central Asia, the Middle East, the Americas and Africa on oil and gas projects. On May 21, China and Russia signed a natural gas supply agreement of 40 billion dollars. On Nov. 9, the second round of natural gas agree framework was signed.

The evidence shown here suggests that China is making efforts in policy and practice to transform its energy consumption. This means applying renewable energy has been practiced by the world’s second-largest economy entity. This shows that to make a better and cleaner future can be expected, for the world’s largest populated country has swerved its steer to the green direction. Although this is a benign phenomenon, the miserable fact still exists. By the end of 2013, China’s renewable energy (water, solar and wind) accounted for 30% of its total capacity. Compared with this figure, its biofuels accounted for 69% of its total capacity.

So far China is still the largest carbon dioxide emission country. Based on this serious problem, many China’s major cities have been overwhelmed by haze and smog, which have already caused public health warnings. Therefore, China’s move toward renewable energy must be concrete and urgent.

According to the report of Global Research, China’s established renewable energy system is now the largest across the world. This also proves that the country is moving toward the direction that may change its own climate and terrible weather, and will probably make a great contribution to the world. Under the call of the president and his policies and regulations, China has so far begun a revolution of green energy, and more and more green energy enterprises have appeared and begun making efforts to boost this move. But whether the country will meet its target by 2030, this is still a question for us to wait and see.

What Is the Solar Inverter Wi-Fi Kit?

Solar Inverter Wi-Fi kit

A solar inverter is a device specially designed for a solar system which generates electricity from sunlight. It functions to convert direct current into alternating current which a family uses. This is an assistant of the solar panels, while what does the solar inverter Wi-Fi kit do?

The special kit was invented by the Omnik brand, and it is an external communication monitoring device which allows the user to monitor whether its solar inverter has been working well or not. But how does this kit do this fascinating job? For this question, I have an explanation. First, there is an interface inside this kit, and it is the interface that connects the pv inverter. Then, the kit can receive information and the stream of the inverter, and transfer such information to the web server. Users can monitor the device runtime status by checking the 4 LEDs on the panel which indicates power, RS485, link and status.

With this kit, users will be able to monitor the solar system all the time. If malfunctions happen unexpectedly, signals will be sent out to the installer, who will send their experts to repair in time. But in fact, the kit has very good quality and will seldom get repaired. No worry about this. This is an assistant for the whole solar system, not a drag of it.

Write an Article for Your New Product

What is your newly launched product? Never hesitate! Write an article to introduce it, and exhibit this article to your potential customers on the social media.

Since your company has launched a new product, you need to market it online and offline. But according to today’s trend, marketing it online should be something worth your money and energy. Effective methods for marketing are numerous, and writing an article for your certain product is the first step to take. But what tips do you need to take notice of when you compose such an article? No more useless extra words, just look at the paragraphs that follow.

1. What is your product?
If you have determined to write an article introducing your product, you should first let your readers know it is in concise words. This means use the simplest words to describe the most effective information that attracts your readers. For example, if I write an article introducing a solar inverter, I will write like this: The solar inverter is made by the world class technologies, and has the maximum conversion efficiency that can reach up to 97.5% to cooperatively work with the solar panels. High technology and efficiency are the two most concerned elements for a buyer. So, I stress the two points. For you, you need to the similar thing to highlight the features of your product.

2. What are the features of your product?
What is the meaning of a feature? A feature is the shining point of one stuff, and so you have to try your best to find out the shining points of your product and use the most attractive words to describe such features. The only principle is you cannot amplify the features of your certain product. According to my experience, once the new product is launched, features of the product will be surely listed. What you need to do is pick some of them up and tell your readers what exactly they are, for some of the features may not be that clear for a person who is only a new customer. If possible, explain what benefits they can benefit potential customers.

3. Do you have proper links for your product?
No matter whether you write an article for a certain page on your website or in a guest blog, you need links to let your potential customers visit the page that you want them to land. If you have already done this like me, that’s excellent; if not yet, you need to embed links to your target keywords and link to another landing page. Links mean your product is connected with one another. Without links, your product is disconnected. I write articles for solar inverter and solar inverters manufacturers, and so the two words will be my words that are used to embed links.

4. Do you have an attractive page view experience for your readers?
Page view experience is another important point for a reader. At least, you need to ask yourself if your page is attractive to yourself. Then, you had better proof-read other writers’ pages, where you must learn some useful tips to building your page experience. Also, this experience can be based on friendly-looking fonts. In this respect you may decide what font you need to adopt for your whole article. For my solar inverter articles, I prefer to use Times News Roman; while sometimes this font doesn’t coordinate with the whole picture. But if I use the default font, it will be much better. In this case I give up my favorite and choose the one that suits.

5. Have you tried to write an article for a press medium?
This seems to be daunting, while it is effective. A press medium must have a large number of followers. If your article can be punished on such a platform, it will certainly draw so much traffic as well as potential customers to your site through the links that you picked. This needs non-stop practice, and many online writers or bloggers may flinch about it. But since this is something that is still meaningful, it is great for you to try it when you think you have spare time. But whether you do it or not, never forget to exhibit your product on the social media for exposure. I am going to do this for my solar inverter products, for I want more high quality traffic and more potential customers.
