Advanced Energy Industries Inc. (AE) has been recognized by Frost & Sullivan and EE Times for its platform of grid-tie, photovoltaic inverters for commercial and utility-scale installations.
Based on Frost & Sullivan's recent analysis of non-residential, grid-tie inverter markets, the research firm recognized the Solaron platform with a Best Practices Award -specifically, the North American Product Innovation of the Year Award.
‘Advanced Energy's transformer-less inverter represents a paradigm shift in the North American solar inverter market,’ states G. Vimal Krishna Kumar, Frost & Sullivan research analyst for the power supplies market. ‘The inverter brings significant benefits, such as increased energy harvest, increased system reliability, simplified installation, management and the best price-to-performance ratio in the industry.’
EE Times' panel of 15 judges from academia, the industry and Wall Street selected this year's Annual Creativity in Electronics award winners – including AE's Solaron inverter platform, which received the Most Innovative Renewable Energy Award.
