See SolarEdge’s revolutionary power harvesting system at Intersolar Munich 2009 – May 22, 2009
HERTZLIA, ISRAEL: SolarEdge Technologies, an innovative solar power harvesting start-up, announced the company’s highly anticipated PV energy harvesting system will be revealed for the first time at Intersolar Munich 2009, taking place from May 27-29.
Leading up to the conference, SolarEdge Chairman, CEO, and Founder Guy Sellawill give a featured presentation on May 26 on the topic of“Breakthroughs in Distributed DC Architecture” at the PV Industry Forum.
While the solar industry has taken enormous strides to reduce the dollar per watt cost of PV-generated electric power through increased cell efficiency and other innovations, traditional PV installations still suffer from a broad range of limitations.
Centralized architecture and standard design constraints today cause a power loss on average of 20 percent per solar field and lead to poor roof utilization, fire and maintenance safety issues, and ineffective panel theft prevention measures. In addition, current architectures do not enable the module and system-level monitoring for issue identification and performance tracking.
At Intersolar 2009, SolarEdge will introduce the first PV panel-integrated power harvesting system, which can be embedded in practically all types of solar panels available today. The module and system-level combined solution enable maximum power generation throughout the solar lifecycle while dramatically reducing complexities and costs. System owners enjoy significant power increases while installers are able to reduce installation costs and maximize roof utilization, all resulting in lower dollar per watt electrical power.
“We are very pleased to be working with leading companies in the market and are excited to finally show the industry our unique holistic approach,” said Guy Sella, chairman, CEO, and founder of SolarEdge. “By addressing the problems that the industry has overlooked or considered unavoidable, SolarEdge reduces the lifetime cost of PV energy, thus making PV more affordable and paving a faster way to grid parity.”
