PHOTON's 1st PV Inverter Conference: Status on shortageand latest technologies

(PresseBox) (Aachen, ) A shortage of inverters was the last thing solar experts would have considered possible. But the strong surge in demand in the second half of 2009 has basically emptied the warehouses of all major manufacturers in Europe. Lead times are increasing in many countries and there are even reports of rising inverter prices on the spot markets. At the same time, several new companies are entering the inverter segment with innovative microinverter concepts.

The conference will provide an overview on:

- The inverter shortage: Consequences and outlook
- Microinverters: Overview and opportunities for many new microinverter products
- Technology: What do future inverters look like?
- Grid stability: What's needed for an inverter to reliably feed the increasing amount of solar electricity into the grid?
- The top inverter companies: Presentation of the top five inverter companies in PHOTON's inverter tests
- Executive panel discussion
