Lead Inverter Manufacturer & Coffee Break Sponsor

SolarEdge

SolarEdge

SolarEdge invented an intelligent inverter solution that changed the way power is harvested and managed in a PV system. The SolarEdge DC optimized inverter system maximizes power generation at the individual module-level while lowering the cost of energy produced by the solar system. Addressing a broad range of solar market segments, from residential solar installations to commercial and small utility-scale solar installations, the SolarEdge system consists of power optimizers, solar PV inverters, and a cloud-based monitoring platform. The SolarEdge system enables superior power harvesting and module management by connecting power optimizers to each PV module. System costs remain competitive by keeping the DC to AC inversion and grid interaction centralized at a simplified PV inverter. Module manufacturers, installers, and system owners enjoy strategic benefits of SolarEdge technology - maximum power production through module-level MPPT, optimal roof utilization through constraint-free design, and enhanced maintenance and accurate troubleshooting through module-level monitoring. Another benefit is the guaranteed automatic DC shutdown, for installer, maintenance personnel, and firefighter safety, through the SafeDC™ mechanism. Supporting increased site self-consumption, SolarEdge’s Smart Energy Management portfolio includes consumption monitoring, an export limitation option that dynamically adjusts PV power production, a storage solution, and home load control. These products allow system owners to use more energy for self-consumption to reduce the price of electricity. Since beginning commercial shipments in 2010, SolarEdge has shipped approximately 1.4 Gigawatt (‘‘GW’’) of its DC optimized inverter systems and its products have been installed in solar PV systems in more than 70 countries SolarEdge’s mission is to become the leading provider of inverter solutions across all PV market segments and broaden the availability of clean, renewable solar energy.
