Log in to leave feedback.
Driven by the constant quest towards lower system costs and higher power yields, technology manufacturers have always charted the course of innovation in the solar industry. Equipment and component suppliers have been the largest investors in R&D which has been critical to lowering costs and generating greater returns. Sungrow, the company which launched the world’s first 100kW+ string inverter—and the first to be rated at 1500vdc—is a prime example of how manufacturers are paving the future for the entire industry. The company has 30% of its workforce involved directly in R&D and is the world’s only inverter supplier to offer both central and string inverters rated at 1500vdc. With the backbone of the company being focused on innovation and product development, Sungrow now has over 38GW deployed in over 50 countries. At this lunch, senior executives from Sungrow will share some of their most exciting stories of innovation and how technological advancement drives real impact on the business side of solar.
