mitPlan: planning a PV system for boats Cluster-News: January 2018
The internationally active boatyard Frauscher offers yachts with electric motors. Since the beginning of June 2017, the batteries of the boats are charged with PV electricity. Frauscher was supported by the engineering office mitPlan. Since Frauscher’s highest electricity demand is mostly in the evening hours, optimal planning was necessary in order to make the best possible use of the PV system. In the future, it is foreseen that the PV system generate 20,000 kilowatt hours of solar electricity annually.
