The HDPV Alliance, an industry-wide alliance focused on lowering the cost and increasing the performance of PV solar systems, has added six new members to expand alliance membership to 39 companies worldwide.
According to the alliance, new members include inverter, system simulation and PV module manufacturers; engineering, procurement and construction contractors; and operations and maintenance service providers.
As reported, the new members include Satcon/GreatWall Energy, E2SOL, Elechs Kyokuto, Photon Energy, Typhoon HIL and Vikram Solar. With headquarters in China, Europe, India, Japan and North America, these companies add to HDPV’s global footprint.
HDPV, or high-definition photovoltaic, refers to PV system designs that use DC power optimizers to achieve greater system power management capability while lowering the total system costs on day one. The alliance says its members collaborate through defined standards and share best practices to make lower cost and higher-performing systems widely available to the industry.
“We welcome our newest members and look forward to collaborating with them to serve our mutual customers,” says Mark Kanjorski, HDPV Alliance chair and director of marketing for Ampt. “Each member strengthens the alliance’s ability to deliver the lowest cost of solar energy. We encourage other companies to contact HDPV and participate.”
