A group of companies in the solar energy industry has formed a new alliance aimed at reducing solar PV balance-of-system (BOS) costs while increasing energy production from PV plants.
The group, called the HDPV Alliance, says it leverages open technology standards to optimize the design and deployment of inverters, cabling, combiners and associated labor to deliver a lower total system cost and higher performance.
The founding members of the HDPV Alliance include Ampt, KACO new energy, LTi REEnergy and REFUsol Inc., and other members include ZNShine, Shoals Technologies Group, DECK Monitoring, Eoplly, Amphenol, meteocontrol, Suniva, Next Generation Energy, AlsoEnergy and Upsolar.
The HDPV Alliance was created in response to the solar energy industry's ever-increasing pressure to drive down system costs. Ampt, KACO new energy, LTi REEnergy and REFUsol founded the alliance to bring together members around a common vision for the development and adoption of lower-cost and higher-performance PV systems using open standards for HDPV-compliant inverters.
The HDPV Alliance is open to new members who want to offer HDPV-branded products or services. Companies throughout the PV industry – including system developers and engineering, procurement and construction professionals; manufacturers or distributors of inverters, modules and BOS components; and software monitoring and operations and maintenance providers – are encouraged to join.
