CSUN ranks 8th for the full year 2013 in the German PV market

May 21, 2014

Frankfurt, Germany, May 21stth, 2014 - CSUN, a specialized manufacturer of solar cells and modules is delighted to announce that it has been ranked 8th supplier based on shipments to the German market by IHS Technology for the full year 2013.

IHS PV Integrated Market Tracker ranks CSUN as the eighth largest supplier to the German PV market.

“Despite the shrinking size of the German market CSUN’s was able to increase its shipments to this most important European market.,” explains Engin Yaman, General Manger of CSUN’s European sales activities. “CSUN stays committed to the European and particularly the German market and currently evaluates how it can best support its business partners to jointly tackle the remaining market segments of residential and commercial roof-tops.”

Under the current EEG reformation package, the feed-in tariff for ground-mounted projects will be too low to allow economically viable projects. With an EEG allocation of 50% planned on self-consumed PV power, industrial roof-top projects are likely to face the same faith. However, installations below 10 kWp and commercial roof-top applications remain interesting opportunities even under these harsh conditions. This is mainly due to the high electricity prices paid by consumers and small to medium sized enterprises, which do not benefit from exemption regulations.
