Vogelbescherming Nederland has chosen Femtogrid to minimize the impact of shading on its modules and maximize the solar energy produced. Vogelbescherming Nederland is located in Zeist. The surroundings are beautiful, but some trees located close to the headquarter result in partial shading on the rooftop. In order to minimize the impact of shading and maximize the solar energy Vogelbescherming Nederland has chosen Femtogrid to optimize the modules.

The system is a good example of the possibilities of solar energy for rooftops that face partial shading from trees. The system of Vogelberscherming Nederland consists of 32 modules. During the day some modules will face partial shading from trees. As the partial shading differs per module and per time interval Vogelbescherming Nederland has chosen for Femtogrid to optimize solar energy per module.

The parallel architecture of Femtogrid makes sure that the energy produced by a module is not limited by the energy produced by any other module in the same system. As a result, Femtogrid minimizes the system’s impact of partial shading and maximizes the total amount of solar energy. Watch the video PV modules installed at Vogelbescherming Nederland to learn more about the system for Vogelbescherming Nederland and Zonline, who has supplied the total system to Vogelbescherming Nederland.
