In Australia, Schüco supplies innovative photovoltaic (PV) system solutions for almost every area of application – whether for private homes, industrial and commercial roofs or open spaces.
The Schüco portfolio includes polycrystalline and monocrystalline PV modules, as well as innovative thin-film modules. All Schüco modules have high output values and uncompromising quality, in addition to comprehensive product warranties and performance guarantees.
The black, silicon-based thin-film modules provide a higher level of efficiency due to micromorphous cell technology and are manufactured at Schüco production facilities in Germany. They achieve maximum specific outputs even at high operating temperatures, in diffuse light, and where module ori-entation is less than optimal.
Significantly, in terms of health and the environment, Schüco thin-film modules contain minimal quantities of raw materials and do not contain any cadmium or lead.Article continues below…
The product range is completed by mounting systems for almost every area of application – whether on-roof, flat-roof, in-roof, complete roof, canopy or façade mounting.
PV installations of any size and configuration can be operated safely, efficiently and reliably using the Schüco inverters and installation components. Schüco’s solar system solutions, consisting of PV modules, mounting systems, inverters and installation components, feature impressively high solar outputs and cost-effectiveness with reliable system operation.
Green technology for the blue planet
With 5,250 employees and 12,000 partner companies, Schüco is active in 78 countries and achieved turnover of $AU 3 billion in 2010. As the leading provider of pioneering building envelopes, Schüco is making an important contribution to preserving the environment.
This is based on high-insulation window, door and façade systems that considerably reduce the energy consumption of buildings, and solar energy systems that provide renewable energy for all types of building. This dramatically reduces the use of oil, gas, coal and electricity for heating, hot water and air conditioning.
Just as important is the wide range of solutions for building automation and intelligent networking of energy for numerous building functions, such as ventilation, cooling, lighting and everyday life.
The aim is to use and store the generated solar energy where it is consumed – in the building. This comprehensive approach is in line with the Schüco corporate model of Energy3: saving energy, generating energy, networking energy.
At its core is a far-reaching, visionary idea where energy-self-sufficient buildings act as decentralised power stations and are central to a future that is ever-less reliant on fossil fuels and nuclear resources.
