“The trend seems to be that the American market is going in the direction of micro inverters while Europe is moving towards conventional string inverters,” says Niewerth. “We will also discuss new types of inverters, technology and product lifespan."
Scotts Valley, CA (PRWEB) February 14, 2012
Elmar Niewerth, Founder and CEO of Session Solar, a leading wholesale distributor of solar photovoltaic (PV) products, will serve as a moderator for “Next Generation Inverters – Micro inverters, stand-alone and 1000V inverters” at the Inverter and PV System Technology Forum in San Francisco, February 27th-28th, 2012. While the photovoltaic industry discusses cost reductions and technical optimization with a focus on modules, this forum will reveal how important it is to optimize the entire solar system as a matched unit, not just the individual components. This way, the efficiency of the whole PV system can be increased and the price reduced at the same time.
With over 25 years in the solar industry, Niewerth’s contribution to the forum comes packed with a wealth of knowledge from the days when he was a solar installer in Germany through his current role of CEO, and manufacturer of the revolutionary Creotecc solar mounting system.
“The trend seems to be that the American market is going in the direction of micro inverters while Europe is moving towards conventional string inverters,” says Niewerth. “We will also discuss new types of inverters, where technology is going, and how it affects the lifespan of the product.”
While both the U.S. and European markets strive to optimize system compatibility and lower system costs, the U.S. takes a very different approach to achieving these goals. The U.S. emphasizes grid integration of large-scale installations, its distinct certification requirements, and its very competitive upstream (production and supply chain) and downstream (planning, distribution, installation and operation) markets that demand individual consideration.
With debate and dialogue among experts from Silicon Valley and from around the world, this event will help to advance Balance Of System and inverter performance on a broader level. This conference is ideally suited for component manufacturers, project developers, solar distributors, and contractors. For more information or to register, please visit Solarpraxis.
