SolarEdge Technologies, a leading global provider of end-to-end solar power optimization systems and monitoring solutions, announced today that it is cooperating with leading module manufacturers to expand the offering of smart modules to the market. SolarEdge will present smart modules with embedded power optimization, safety and PV monitoring capabilities at Intersolar Europe in Munich, Germany, one of the world´s largest solar energy trade fairs.
SolarEdge will showcase at Intersolar, modules from JA Solar, Yingli Green Energy, LDK Solar, Upsolar Group, Phono Solar, and Tianwei New Energy who will benefit from SolarEdge’s next generation power optimizer, including the new IndOP™ technology. Smart modules with SolarEdge’s new IndOP™ technology can operate without the need for additional interface hardware and can work directly with any third party inverter as well as with the broad range of SolarEdge solar inverters.
“We are very excited about the market potential for smart modules optimized by SolarEdge because by using SolarEdge technology, we are enjoying the highest product quality and performance.” Says Mr. Jiang Yong, VP & GM of Module Manufacturing from JA Solar. “With SolarEdge’s large existing install base, 25 years warranty, field experience and global presence, we are confident about entering this market.”
Smart modules optimized by SolarEdge, available in the market since last year by Solon Energy, are able to perform module-level MPPT, thus eliminating power losses caused by module mismatch, shading, and dust collection. The SolarEdge power optimizer has the highest known efficiency in the industry of 99.5%. In addition, SolarEdge power optimizers enhance system maintenance by monitoring the performance of each module. The smart modules also include the built-in SafeDC™ feature which automatically shuts down a modules' voltage whenever inverter or grid power is shut down. This safety mechanism mitigates high-voltage risks during installation, maintenance and firefighting.
SolarEdge will be presenting its products and services from June 13 to15 at the Intersolar Europe trade fair in Munich Hall, C3 at Stand 110.
