FuturaSun enters the Australian market. The Clean Energy Council – the peak body for the clean energy industry in Australia – has approved the modules of the Italian company.
After a long and intense verification process, FuturaSun modules have been validated and then included in the public database https://www.cleanenergycouncil.org.au/industry/products/modules/approved-modules, the only list to which accredited installers must refer.
CEC raises the bar in terms of quality and safety of the panels admitted on the Australian market. Year after year, it updates the list of accredited products, eliminating those that no longer meet the requirements and including the newly-certified ones.
FuturaSun designs and manufactures quality modules that meet the stringent CEC requirements. In particular, FuturaSun modules have passed the IEC 61730 fire test, which makes them suitable for rooftop installation, which is a fast-growing sector in Australia.
2019 was a record-breaking year with 2.2 GW of rooftop solar installed across Australia. This capacity smashed the previous record of 1.6 GW set in 2018 and has almost doubled the amount of small-scale solar capacity installed in 2017. At the end of the year, the total number of installations was 2.3 million for a capacity of more than 10 GW.(https://www.cleanenergycouncil.org.au/resources/resources-hub/clean-energy-australia-report)
Australia is the country with the highest installed photovoltaic capacity per capita. Over 15% of Australian homes already have a rooftop system, exceeding 50% in some areas. Queensland remains the overall leader with 2.9 GW of small-scale rooftop solar installations.
And the boom won’t stop anytime soon, with the Clean Energy Regulator expecting the total to reach more than 25GW by the end of the new decade in 2030.
Australia is a sunny country with huge potential and FuturaSun, thanks to an agreement with an accredited Queensland distributor, is ready to seize the opportunities and help achieve clean energy goals.
