Power & heat with PVT: New cooperation between Sunmaxx and Wagner Solar for nationwide supply of PVT modules

Dresden, March 20, 2024 – Europe’s leading PVT manufacturer, Sunmaxx, and Wagner Solar, a system provider, wholesaler of photovoltaic and solar thermal energy, and manufacturer of mounting systems, announce a cooperation for the distribution of PVT modules. With the help of the highly efficient Sunmaxx PX-1 Premium PVT modules, customers can produce electricity and heat simultaneously. The modules are ideal for use in combination with brine heat pumps. Wagner Solar supplies the appropriate TRIC mounting systems and accessories for mounting and piping the Sunmaxx PVT modules.

The first Sunmaxx PVT modules will be available wholesale from Wagner Solar starting in April. The modules have an overall efficiency of 80% and are the ideal solution for independent, sustainable energy generation. In monovalent systems, brine heat pumps can be operated efficiently by drawing all their energy exclusively from the PVT modules without requiring additional energy sources. In multivalent systems, it is possible to use geothermal probes as an additional heat source. This system allows geothermal probes to be regenerated, i.e., thermally recharged, further improving system efficiency. The modules are suitable for all roofs and open spaces and can be used flexibly on industrial buildings, in municipalities, and single-family homes, with TRIC mounting systems from Wagner Solar.

“Our modules are manufactured to the highest quality standards in the EU. With the ramp-up of our production facility in Ottendorf-Okrilla, we are currently operating one of the world’s largest PVT plants with a capacity of 50 MW and 120,000 modules per year. Our aim is to meet the growing global demand for innovative PVT hybrid modules. We are very pleased about the close cooperation with Wagner Solar, one of Germany’s leading and most experienced solar system providers,” says Franz Ziering, CSO of Sunmaxx PVT.

“At Wagner Solar, we value quality and performance. With the addition of Sunmaxx to our product range, we can offer our customers high-quality new solutions for sustainable energy generation. We manufacture the TRIC mounting systems that match the Sunmaxx modules at our site in Kirchhain/Hesse and have a minimal CO2 footprint. Sunmaxx’s production in Saxony fits in perfectly with our focus on regional value creation,” comments Andreas Knoch, Head of Technology at Wagner Solar.

The partnership between Sunmaxx and Wagner Solar represents an essential milestone in developing a more robust German solar industry. Together, the companies strive to make sustainable energy solutions accessible across the board and thus contribute to the energy transition.
