Intersolar 2024: JUWI exceeds 4,000 megawatt milestone and initiates further large-scale projects

In the run-up to Intersolar 2024, JUWI can announce a new record and the start of further major projects: With the completion of the 223.6 megawatt “Pike Solar” solar park in the US state of Colorado, the renewable energy specialist has increased its installed solar capacity to over 4,000 megawatts. The company also announced the launch of further large-scale projects in excess of 100 megawatts. At the world's leading trade fair for the solar industry in Munich from June 19 to 21, JUWI will be presenting its complete range of project development and O&M services for solar and hybrid projects at a joint stand with its sister company MVV Trading in Hall A4, Stand 550.

One of the main topics of JUWI's presentation is the direct supply of solar power to industrial companies. JUWI is currently building a ten-megawatt solar park for SPIES Packaging in Melle, Lower Saxony. This solar park is poised to provide electricity directly to the manufacturing plant of the injection-molded plastic packaging manufacturer through a direct line. Revamping is also one of this year's key topics at the JUWI stand. For over a year now, the Renewable Energy Sources Act in Germany has opened up new opportunities for operators to replace modules within the EEG term. Other key topics at the JUWI stand include the purchase of project rights, cyber security and the marketing of electricity by JUWI's sister company MVV Trading as well as JUWI's new employer branding.  

"We have a well-filled project pipeline with a number of major projects with which we are already targeting the 5,000 megawatt threshold in terms of installed solar capacity. Particularly in  Germany, we are we're increasingly focusing on projects that involve supplying green electricity to industrial clients and incorporating storage technologies,” explains Carsten Bovenschen, CEO of JUWI GmbH. The company is currently preparing the construction of further large solar parks with an output of over 100 megawatts each in the USA. In the US state of Colorado, where the company's US branch is located, JUWI is currently constructing three photovoltaic projects with a total output of more than 500 megawatts (DC). While the “Spanish Peaks” project has been under construction since the end of last year, the sale of two further PV projects to the energy supplier Tri-State from Colorado was sealed at the beginning of June. Axial Basin Solar is a 186 megawatt (DC) project in Moffat County around 250 miles northwest of Denver. Dolores Canyon Solar is a 141 MW (DC) project located in Dolores County approximately 400 miles southwest of Denver. JUWI will begin construction on both projects shortly.

Revamping and cyber security

Another key part of JUWI's presence in Munich is the company's operations management services: in addition to solar farm operations management, maintenance and 24/7 remote monitoring, JUWI also offers a range of specialized services. These include the secure connection of solar and wind parks to the data network through the Secure Connect solution.

The revamping of solar parks - i.e. the replacement of modules in existing plants - is also playing an increasingly important role. This is the operator's response to module degradation, which averages 0.5 to 1 percent of output. Over the past seven years, JUWI's operations management division has replaced around 720,000 modules with a total output of around 119 megawatts in 18 solar parks. In addition to insurance claims, the possibilities offered by the German EEG 2023 are also playing an increasing role. For around one and a half years now, older modules in existing parks can be replaced even if they are not damaged, without losing the EEG subsidy. 

New employer brand

Just in time for the start of Intersolar in Munich, JUWI will present its redesigned employer brand identity. In view of the upcoming major projects and a market that continues to grow, the company is planning additional new hires in the coming months. “With our slogan “The Power of Our Unity” we are recruiting experienced specialist and young talents.” continues Bovenschen. The pioneering company for renewable energies, , which has been established for almost 30 years, is therefore emphasizing its cooperative corporate culture and sustainable business model.
