Growth of Solar PV market mainly driven by China - Omnik New Energy

Growth of Solar PV market mainly driven by China - Omnik New Energy | pv inverter Certification | Scoop.it

As environmental protection strengthens, countries around the world are turning to renewable energy, among which solar energy plays an unbeatable role. In 2014, investments in the global solar energy market accounted for 50% of the entire renewable energy investments. Among the investors, China served as the biggest drive.

According to Bloomberg New Energy Finance, in 2014 the solar market snared 149.6 billion dollars, while this figure was only 114.7 dollars billion in 2013. The total growth is 16%, a leapfrog for this industry.

Besides this jump, solar energy’s growth will meet a new bright future, for the International Energy Agency predicts that each year 1 trillion dollars will be poured into renewable energy to change lower temperatures for the world. This is environment friendly and also will contribute to the great development in this industry.

China has turned into the greatest drive of this industry. Asia Pacific Major PV Markets Quarterly shows the region’s PV demand growth was 19% year on year in 2014. In the first three quarters the growth was not that big, while when China’s installation in the fourth quarter grew dramatically, the figure met its high record. Indeed, Japan was another great contributor too. For the Chinese PV market, ground-mount projects were still the main contributor to the entire growth, growth its residential solar PV market is still escalating in a slow motion.

In addition to China’s and Japan’s great contribution to the global PV market, other Asia Pacific regions also served as important contributors, such as India and Australia. As Prime Minister Narendra Modii took office, the Indian government has announced lots of solar PV development plans which have been widely reported by the world’s media. In Australia, the solar PV development boomed because of the growth of residential PV power system installations. Meanwhile, large-scale solar projects have been built or are being built in the country too, which is also an important reason to the country’s solar development. - See more at: http://www.omnik-solar.com/news/Growth-of-Solar-PV-market-mainly-driven-by-China

Abu Dhabi-based Renewable energy firm Masdar revealed that construction has commenced on four PV plants in the Pacific island countries of Kiribati, Fiji, Tuvalu and Vanuatu.

 

The projects, financed by the Abu Dhabi Fund for Development’s US$50 million UAE-Pacific Partnership Fund, will provide a total generation capacity of 1.8MW while also providing fuel savings worth around US$2 million per year. All four plants are expected to be completed by the second half of 2015.

 

Ahmad Belhoul, CEO of Masdar, said: “Access to clean energy is a pathway toward economic and social development. For Pacific islands, which rely on imported fuel for electricity generation, renewable energy provides a viable alternative. In fact, wind and solar power projects deliver immediate savings, while underpinning long-term energy security.”

 

This is not the first time that Masdar has made inroads on the Pacific islands, as the company unveiled the commissioned La'a Lahi "Big Sun" solar plant in Tonga in November 2013 while later developing Samoa’s first wind farm — commissioned in August 2014.

Enel puts 136 MW of solar PV on line in Chile

Enel puts 136 MW of solar PV on line in Chile | pv inverter Certification | Scoop.it

On December 29th, Enel Green Power reported completion of the 60 MW Lalackama and 40 MW Chañares solar PV plants in Northern Chile, as well as the final 4 MW phase of the Diego de Almagro plant.

All three are located in the regions of Antofagasta and Atacama in Northern Chile, and hold contracts to sell the electricity they generate into the nation's Central Grid (SIC). Together they comprise 136 MW of solar PV that the company has put online in Chile in 2014 and represent an investment of US$240 million.

“Enel Green Power is currently the number two ranked developer in the Latin America region, according to the Q3 Latin America PV Playbook from GTM Research,” explains GTM Research Solar Analyst Adam James.

“With a wide network of partners and subsidiaries in the region's electricity industry and extensive access to capital, Enel is in many ways the most competitively positioned downstream company in the Latin American market.”

It is unclear whether or not these projects included in the 326 MW-AC that Chilean authorities declared online in a December report. The report also found that 873 MW-AC of solar PV projects are under construction, making Chile by far the largest solar PV inverter market in Latin America and likely the Southern Hemisphere.

While the smallest of the three projects, the Diego de Almagro may be the most interesting, as it is made up of 225,000 multi-junction thin-film solar PV modules from Enel's 3Sun factory in Sicily.

These modules comprise a structure of micro-crystalline and amorphous silicon layers. While the technology offers a conversion efficiency of only 9.6%, Enel says that like other thin-film modules they perform better under low-light and high temperature conditions.

In July Sharp bowed out of a joint venture to develop projects using modules from the 3Sun factory, with Enel taking over its purchase commitments. At the time the company said that it would use the modules to supply its PV projects in emerging nations, naming South Africa and South America.

Advanced Energy considers PV inverter sell-off

Advanced Energy considers PV inverter sell-off | pv inverter Certification | Scoop.it

Power control manufacturer Advanced Energy (AE) is considering the future of its PV inverter business with a sell-off not ruled out.

The company confirmed that it is looking at a number of options for the unit including licensing, partnerships and a sale.

“As part of our annual strategic planning process, we reviewed our entire business to determine the best portfolio mix to achieve our strategic objectives and build shareholder value,” said Yuval Wasserman, president and CEO. “We concluded that the Solar Inverter business as currently configured required a review of our strategic alternatives to capitalize on its strong product portfolio and customer relationships,” he added.

 

The company said in a statement that it would make no further comment on the unit until a decision had been taken. It also stressed that there was no guarantee that a sale was imminent.

AE has been losing market share recently, according to IHS data, as a number of Asian manufacturers have muscled out European and American competitors.

 

AE has recently come under pressure from financial analysts to consider exiting the PV inverter market as it has struggled to increase sales, despite the introduction of a new central inverter and the acquisition of string inverter firm, REFUsol in 2013.

 

The company had also undertaken a major restructuring and relocation of inverter production to China to reduce manufacturing costs and become more competitive in the market.

 

Part of the problem has been that AE’s solar PV inverter sales have declined 19.4% sequentially to US$52 million in the last quarter, this despite a booming US PV market.

 

Management had noted in its last earnings conference call that its sales decline was due to customers delaying PV power plant projects, due to the US anti-dumping case.

 

However, it was somewhat of a baptism of fire for the new CEO in the last earnings call as financial analysts fired a salvo of tough questions over its continued poor performance in the PV sector, repeatedly asking in one way or another if it was better to exit the PV inverter market.

A New Global Trend: Solar Farm - Omnik New Energy

A New Global Trend: Solar Farm - Omnik New Energy | pv inverter Certification | Scoop.it

The global energy trend is turning to renewables, and renewables are represented by solar energy. Solar power plants were built, are being built and will be built to generate power. And then residential solar power systems came into view and have been built to supply electricity for each single family. This is an increasingly changing world in an upscale manner. Now a new trend arrives: solar farm.

What is a solar farm?
The term has at least two meanings, one broad and the other narrow. The broad refers to any large-scale of land where solar modules are installed to generate electricity with sunlight, including ground-mounted solar power plants, floating solar power plants and farms or ranches where solar modules are installed. The narrow meaning of it definitely refers to a farmland or ranch where installed solar modules can generate electricity and also offer a good environment for animals to feed and crops to grow.

How does it work?
What I describe in this article is the narrow meaning of it. As for its working principle, there is no secret, for it is nearly the same as a common solar power plant, absorbing sunlight, converting it into DC, turning it into AC through a solar PV inverter and finally reaching your house. Since I said “nearly”, which means there are some differences. What are they? For a residential PV system, solar panels are installed on your rooftop; and for a large-scale solar power plant, it means numerous of solar panels are installed on racks on a large area where there is nothing but dirt or sand. However, for a typical solar farm, the racks supporting solar panels are placed on a farmland and these solar panels can track the sun to maximize power generation. Beneath these panels are crops which don’t need so much sunlight to grow such as coffee, black agaric and mushrooms. Or you can raise animals such as chicken, duck and sheep under these panels on this land.

What are the benefits of such a farm?
Once the farm is built, it can supply electricity to families which are still using the utility grid electricity. Since it doesn’t need any fossil fuels, its lower prices are expected. You will enjoy cheaper prices. Also because it doesn’t need fossil fuels, it will not emit polluted mass to the environment. So, as such solar farms are installed, the environment can become better, especially air and water. In addition, the farm can boost biodiversity. The typical example is the UK’s Landmead solar farm, the largest one in the country.

Where are they located across the world?
Typical solar farms are located in the UK, Japan, Mauritius and Taiwan, China. The most famous one should be the one located in the UK. It is the Landmead solar farm which has the capacity of 46MW and can supply electricity to 14,000 families across the kingdom. The other one is named “Solar Green Gold Farm” located in Yunlin county along the coast of Taiwan, and its capacity will reach up to 1.5 MW after being completely accomplished. Another world’s largest non-typical airport solar farm has been built at Indianapolis International Airport in the U.S.

Apart from these farms, there are also other large-scale solar farms, such as Topaz solar farm and Japan’s floating solar farm to be built at Yamakura Dam. But no matter what types of solar farms will be built or how many they will be built, going solar is the world’s energy trend. Surely, the solar farm trend will continue too.

Solar glass “dual”

November 27, 2013, the European Commission announced on China PV glass preliminary ruling anti-dumping investigation, the decision on the origin of China’s solar glass products to impose provisional anti-dumping duties, the implementation period of six months. The preliminary results for the sample of enterprises of the provisional anti-dumping tax rate of 17.1% ~ 39.3%, the average tax rate was 38.4% in the joint venture, other business tax rate is 42.1%.


EU “dual”

December 5, 2013, the European Commission published the EU anti-dumping and countervailing PV final ruling announcement, in addition to price undertakings enterprises, China’s PV module and battery levy 47.7% to 64.9% range of dual anti-tax. The announcement said the price undertakings in force August 6, 2013 continue to be valid, the commitment increased 121 companies, accounting for about 80% of total exports to the EU during the period of investigation.

 

Polysilicon “dual”

January 20, 2014, the Chinese Ministry of Commerce issued a final determination of the United States, South Korea imports of solar-grade polysilicon. From now on the origin of levy of 2.4% to 57% of the anti-dumping duty and 0% to 2.1% countervailing duty on imports of US and South Korean solar-grade polysilicon.

 

American second “dual”

December 17, 2014, the US Department of Commerce announced the China Photovoltaic second “double reverse” the final results. It finds that mainland China’s exports to the US crystalline silicon photovoltaic product dumping margin of 26.71% ~ 165.04% subsidy margin of 27.64% – 49.79%; US-crystalline silicon photovoltaic product dumping margin for China Taiwan region 11.45% ~ 27.55%. And compared to the preliminary results, final results show that the Chinese mainland products subsidy rate in the US has increased, which means that there is likely to be imposed more stringent countervailing duties.

best solar inverter manufacturers: New Inverter Technological Costs Are Reduced

best solar inverter manufacturers: New Inverter Technological Costs Are Reduced | pv inverter Certification | Scoop.it

Meeting the needs for electricity in remote parts of the world is an endeavor that is a labor of love for those intimately involved with saving animals that have no voice.   Part of that labor of love involves corporations and individuals who see to it that shipments of solar electricity systems, which include a variety of different types of power inverters, are shipped to field agents.   Ten different conservation projects in 7 different countries are making great strides thanks to electrical systems that are able to operate with the aid of off-grid, solar-powered inverters.

Inverter R&D has focused on two areas. The first is incremental changes in the existing string/central inverter,the second recent inverter development is a move toward decentralized architectures.

The new solar micro inverter is instead of having one large inverter that handles all of the conversion from DC current to AC current for the home, these new solar panels have a solar micro inverter installed in each of them that does this conversion in the panel.  This solar micro inverter takes the DC current generated by the solar panel, and converts it directly to AC current before leaving the panel.  This way you have a complete solution within the solar panel that can produce the exact power your home needs to operate.  Because higher voltage AC electricity has a lot less loss over the long wire run into your house, you get a more efficient conversion and can use a larger portion of the power you are generating with your solar panels.  This also makes expanding your solar power system each year easier as well since you can simply buy more panels and add them to your homes wiring.  There is never a need to worry about having to upgrade your inverter.  Even though these new solar panels are a little more expensive than the older ones, eliminating the cost of the larger inverter makes the total system cost about the same.


Solar inverter prices have not decreased significantly in the past few years, and with module prices falling, inverters represent a greater portion of the total cost of a solar installation. As mentioned, inverter technology can also have a significant impact on BOS and labor costs. For example, higher-capacity central inverters reduce the number of inverters that need to be installed in very large systems, thereby reducing labor costs. This is offset to some extent by the wider distribution of DC wiring and the need for bulky and expensive DC combiners and DC circuit overcurrent protection.

New inverter technologies also have the potential to reduce solar array operating costs. Microinverter technologies make the array less prone to performance degradation from dust and debris, meaning less frequent washing. Normal soiling of modules can easily reduce power output by 5 or 6%. Also, inverters based on a distributed architecture allow for delayed maintenance. In this type of highly redundant system, if one module or inverter fails, the outage is limited to that module. The rest of the array will continue to operate normally. System owners and operators can have a plan of scheduled maintenance rather than emergency maintenance. Furthermore, maintenance costs are lower because microinverters can be swapped out quickly and easily, and by less-skilled staff—compared to large central inverters, which require expert diagnosis, repair, removal, and replacement. Finally, systems that include inverter communication and per module monitoring dramatically reduce the time required to troubleshoot the PV array.

Essential Factors that influence PV inverter prices - Omnik New Energy

Essential Factors that influence PV inverter prices - Omnik New Energy | pv inverter Certification | Scoop.it

Those who enter the PV power industry and those who use it must know PV inverters play an essential role in the whole process of generating electricity from sunlight. Thus, PV inverter prices turn into a focal point for us. Although I cannot tell you the specific price of each inverter product, I think it is necessary to analyze the key factors that affect their prices.

Costs
Every useful product has cost, so do these electricity-converting devices. What elements affect their costs? Indeed those that affect them are labor, tech, ads and other company running costs including rent, tax, daily consumption and so on. In this industry labor, tech and ads are supposed to be the three key factors affecting the costs. If you have cheap labor, you will be able to lower your selling price and even transfer more money to technology and research, which can guarantee the high qualities of them. If you can invest less in technology and research, you will further lower the price although this is not suggested for good reason. Making common ads also costs a lot. So small businesses had better choose other ways to market their inverters to lower their prices, such as SEO and Google ads.

Efficiency
Once a commercial product is concerned, its efficiency must be noticed. A PV solar inverter’s efficiency lies in how much direct current it can convert into alternating current. The common conversion efficiency is about 92% to 96%. As technology improves, this rate can be raised even higher up to 98.2%. The typical example is Omnik in China, whose inverter technique was introduced from Germany four years ago. Indeed as efficiency improves, their prices might be even higher. But to buy a high quality product, higher payment is fair. Certainly, you should also be careful in making this decision.

Scale
The obvious fact is that the larger the inverter manufacturing scale is, the cheaper the prices will become. This rule has been proved by solar cells whose prices have slumped in recent years, and this is also true for solar inverters. As more products are sold although each one bears little profit, the large scale of products should have so much profit. Small businesses cannot usually do that, while they can work hard to expand their business and do it through smart ways.

Brand
What’s the meaning of a famous brand? Usually a big name guarantees good quality but there is no sure thing about it. Nowadays a big brand name like SMA must have a strikingly beautiful website which is supported by a team of high-paid designers and sustaining members. It pays more for their ads, and also it has more pressure in running the whole business. For example, it needs labor, which costs a lot in many countries except those who are poor or less developed. With all these factors added, their PV inverter prices will rise for sure.

Region
What I mean here is continent difference. Today’s solar industry hot spots are mainly scattered in Europe, America, Oceania and Asia. The three regions have different labor prices, geographic differences, building style differences, and policy differences. In Germany, the UK or the US, the labor prices are different but relatively high. In China and India, their prices must be much lower. At the same time geographic differences and building style differences will make different degrees of difficulties for installing the whole PV system where solar inverters are included. Therefore, the prices will vary too. Besides all these factors, policies can possible decide whether their prices are low or high. Most of these solar developing countries’ governments give incentives to solar firms, while their policies are quite different, with a result that some are more and others less. However, this is not that important compared with lobar cost prices.

Competition
As solar energy become hot, more and more manufacturers swarm into building related products including solar inverters. To win customers, these manufacturers lower their prices. This has put pressure on all of them. If your prices are too high, customers turn to other cheaper ones. High qualities are always loved by customers, while lower prices may drive customers to sacrifice qualities too. Thus, the balance of keeping fair prices and high qualities is a smart strategy.

With all these factors, PV inverter prices can be controlled, while there are other factors that also affect their prices. For this reason, you need to learn more of this industry as well as these amazing products. But I still think focusing only on prices might not be a good move for potential solar inverter buyers and users.

best solar inverter manufacturers: Serbia shuns solar

best solar inverter manufacturers: Serbia shuns solar | pv inverter Certification | Scoop.it

The extent to which solar has fallen out of favor in Serbia since ambitious plans for a 1 GW solar farm fell through has been spelled out by the government's announcement that its PV ambitions amount to 10 MW of new capacity up to 2020.

Although the Belgrade government rushed through the adoption of an EU measure last month to liberalize its electricity market, the chief beneficiaries are likely to be wind developers, with national policy-makers aiming for 700 MW of new capacity by 2020.

In a bid to fast-track its EU membership ambition, Serbia last month rushed through adoption of the EU's Third Legislative Energy Package.

It is hoped the removal of the power monopoly enjoyed by the National Power Industry – Elektroprivreda Srbije, or EPS – and transmission grid owner Elektromreze Srbije (EMS), will see consumers shop around for alternative providers to the two state-owned companies.

Under the EU directive adopted, power companies can either entirely relinquish ownership of their grid, network management and corporate subsidiaries; can separate off only the management company; or can retain the status quo with the caveat that the latter two options would see the introduction of regulatory bodies with the power to issue binding decisions and penalties on the utilities concerned.

The hope is that the removal of the state-owned monopoly will permit access for independent generators and drive investment in energy projects.

But with large scale hydro supplying virtually all of the 29% of Serbia's current renewables power the government appears to be betting on wind to largely plug the gap in a country in which only 5-6 MW of power is supplied by photovoltaics.

Meanwhile, the legacy of the nation's previous high-profile attempt to embrace solar is still dragging through the courts after Serbia's flagship PV project, the 1 GW solar farm owned by Luxembourg-based Securum Equity Partners Europe (SEPE) was abandoned.

In 2013, SEPE announced it would bring Serbia's government to the International Court of Arbitration in London over abandoning plans for the construction of the project and demanding €1.7 billion ($1.97 billion) compensation.

SEPE argues the Serbian government did not provide the land promised for the project whilst the Serbian ministry of energy says it offered land ten times the area requested but SEPE rejected it.

『Vikram Solar completes India's first floating PV』

『Vikram Solar completes India's first floating PV』 | pv inverter Certification | Scoop.it

India-headquartered module manufacturer Vikram Solar has successfully completed the installation and grid connection of the country’s first floating PV power plant.

The R&D installation has been developed in collaboration with the Arka Renewable Energy College in Kolkata with the aim to create solar PV system that is suitable for connection on any body of water.

The Vikram Solar installation produces a minimum power generation of 14 MWh/year from its 10 x 1 kW fiberglass modules and has been securely anchored to the lakebed, which is located in Kolkata’s New Town area. Vikram Solar also confirmed that the installation has been designed to last 25 years and is grid-connected via a submersible cable.

"The project underlines Vikram Solar’s strong track record and efforts to make solar energy available everywhere and for everyone – even in the remotest and most challenging environments, such as water," said Vikram Solar’s head of business development and engineering, Miguel Monsalve.

According to Gon Chaudhuri, former MD of West Bengal Renewable Energy Development Agency (WBREDA) and former advisor to the Indian state power department, the project has already attracted keen interest from ministers and engineers.

"A team of experts is coming from Lakshadweep to take a look at the project, as a similar project will be undertaken up there," said Chaudhuri. "Land is required for setting up any power plant, but a floating solar panel doesn’t require any land since it is set up on a waterbody."

Japan – which has pioneered floating solar PV inverter projects due to acute land shortages – leads the way in this field. In 2013 French EPC Ciel et Terre installed a 1.2 MW floating installation in Okegawa, and the company is also involved in a groundbreaking (not literally, though) 13.4 MW floating PV project penciled in for Japan’s Yamakura Dam.

This project will see Ciel et Terre attach 50,000 Kyocera modules to its patented Hydrelio floating platforms, with a completion date scheduled for March 2016. Once completed it will be the world’s largest floating PV installation for just a few months – California’s Sonoma County is expected to have a 15 MW project up-and-running by fall 2016.

Features that micro solar inverters need to guarantee high quality - Omnik New Energy

Features that micro solar inverters need to guarantee high quality - Omnik New Energy | pv inverter Certification | Scoop.it

 Micro inverters are mainly used for residential solar power systems. As residential system needs increase, they are becoming more and more important in the modern solar energy world. But how to judge whether a micro solar inverter is not only a qualified one but also an excellent solar device for your home? The following paragraphs can decode these secrets.

Efficiency
A solar inverter's main function is to convert the direct current generated from sunlight into the alternating current that is used for a home. Thus, its conversion efficiency must be the topmost element for a consumer to consider while choosing some one like this. Today SMA's highest efficiency can reach up to 96%, and Omnik's highest efficiency is 95.5%. This means the more the efficiency is, the more electricity your home will generate.

Lifespan

A person has a lifespan, so is a micro inverter. What's the standard that says this is a high quality inverter? No a sure measure to do so. Yet, usually a micro inverter's lifespan can stretch to 10 to 15 years. It is installed in a whole system which generates electricity. For such as a system, its lifespan can last for 20 to 25 years. This means the inverters you use need to be changed after their lifespan.

Reliability

How do you define reliability for a micro inverter? It means this device is stout and can go through different harsh conditions without being affected or damaged. If an inverter contains the IP65 technology, it can defend itself from being harmed from the outer harsh conditions, especially harsh whether conditions. Solar panels are installed on rooftops. Some users want to install them near these panels for convenience, while others would love to install them in a garage or warehouse. No matter where you install it, an inverter with such technology can protect itself from damage.

Parallel or not

Micro solar inverters should usually be connected together to work, which means inverters which cannot be connected to work won't be chosen. Usually they are connected in parallel. So, how many of them can be connected to make a good fortune? No sure thing about this, either. Commonly, if 8 such inverters can be connected in parallel together, they are good ones. Easy for installation What does "micro" mean? It means very small and easy to deal with. So, a micro inverter is something that should be small and easy for a user to take away and install. For this problem, a solar inverter needs to have something for you to hook. If some grooves are designed, that must be user friendly.

Cooling system

A micro inverter is a small machine, while inside it there should be some smaller one that can help cool the machine when its temperature is too high. For this concern, a good cooling system is needed. Noise free Yes, every machine has noise, while the noise can be lowered through technical measures. If you buy a computer which always screams, do you love it? No doubt, you will go to the seller to repair it or change a new one that is noise free. A micro inverter is the same. It has noise while the noise can be lowered to a certain level that doesn't disturb your family at all. That's the rule! Or perhaps you can install it into a room which you usually don't enter even though it is not noisy.

Remote control

A remote control is something luxurious, for without it a machine like a television can still work but it needs to approach it to adjust certain channels. For this concern, today's technicians have designed a remote control that can monitor your machine without your approaching it. The technology is defined by a built-in Wi-Fi card which sends you the data that you care about to your mobile device which has downloaded the app from the installer's app shop.
Apart from these standards, I believe there are still other standards that can judge whether a micro solar inverter is an excellent one or not. However, by the standards I have listed in the article, you must be able to select a highly efficient inverter for your home. - See more at: http://www.omnik-solar.com/news/Features-that-micro-solar-inverters-need-to-guarantee-high-quality

Solar Inverter Manufacturers: Fierce Competition Drives the Trend to Asia - Omnik New Energy

Solar Inverter Manufacturers: Fierce Competition Drives the Trend to Asia - Omnik New Energy | pv inverter Certification | Scoop.it

“Global photovoltaic (PV) inverter supplier rankings have changed substantially over the past 12 months, led by large gains from Japanese, Chinese and module-level power electronic suppliers,” said Cormac Gilligan, Senior PV inverter analyst of IHS.

In the world the most successful PV inverter manufacturers first appeared in Europe, especially Germany, a country famous for industrial development. SMA is its typical example. It has been very successful in this industry, while today its market share also shrinks 6% although it still remains the most powerful player in this industry. ABB is a solar firm from Zurich, Switzerland, and its market share has shrank 1%. Compared with the former, this company’s loss is less. But this is still loss.

Why did they lose their market shares? For the German company, it has taken enough notice of the Asia market, especially Japanese and Chinese markets. ABB’s loss is mainly due to its reduced inverter shipments to German market. Japan has developed solar power for many years and has been active in this industry. For example, Japan’s TMEIC has launched a new base in the U.S. Yaskawa has expanded its business into the country too. For China, a new player on this market, it develops so fast that its manufacturers have also been well-known by global citizens. According to Solardaily, the Chinese company has gained the largest profit in the global PV inverter market in the past 12 months. Sungrow has sold its solar inverters to the U.S. market too.  

What advantages do Asian companies have while competing with giant inverter manufacturers? There must be two reasons at least. One is Asia is a heavily populated continent where labor is relatively cheap on average compared with its competitors in Europe. Although Japan is not a cheap country, while its demands for solar electricity are high. China’s labor prices are cheaper than those of Japan and are much more competitive. India’s labor is even cheaper but its solar infrastructure is not very good compared with China’s. The second reason is the Asian market is large. China and India have large territories where large-scales of solar power plants can be built. China is now facing heavy smog and trying to change it by choosing renewable energy forms. Also, residential solar power systems have also entered the country and are expanding now. Japan’s area is not large, while it has large population and high demands. In this country residential systems are more welcoming and gaining profits. Other Southeast Asian countries have rich sunlight and are introducing solar electricity technology to their countries too.  

However, within each solar-going countries fierce competition is still going on. On 2013’s top 10 inverter suppliers list two German companies SMA and Kaco are competitors in the country and also in the world. Also on the list, two Japanese companies Omran and TMEIC are in fierce competition in their nation. Sungrow is the only country that is on the list, while inside China many prosperous companies are competing with it fiercely.

At the same time SMA has entered the Chinese market and is acquiring companies to compete with its Chinese inverter manufacturing rivals. Many foreign solar inverter manufacturers have encroached on the U.S., and many of them come from Asia, especially China and Japan. - See more at: http://www.omnik-solar.com/news/Solar-Inverter-Manufacturers-Fierce-Competition-Drives-the-Trend-to-Asia

The Changing Fast of PV Inverter Manufacturers in Recent Years

The Changing Fast of PV Inverter Manufacturers in Recent Years | pv inverter Certification | Scoop.it

Since PV became a mainstream technology, the industry had done everything grown, declined, changed at a frantic pace. Solar Inverter companies are also facing a looming shakeout as they deal with continued shifts in global demand and strong downward pricing trends.In 2013, the PV inverter market was characterised by big declines in pricing, a radical change in the regional make-up of the industry and some big shifts in top-ten supplier rankings.

PV Inverter Manufacturers

With Europe no longer the driver of growth for the PV solar industry and its demand dwindling, the top-ten ranking of suppliers was also transformed.Solar inverter manufacturers established in new growth markets such as China and Japan were able to capitalise on the expansion of these markets and gain significant share of the global market. In contrast, many European inverter suppliers that were highly exposed to the decline of their domestic markets have lost share and slipped down the ranking.

As most international suppliers are likely to remain all but locked out of China and Japan, which combined will account for at least a third of annual global revenues every year for at least the next five years, the domestic suppliers that are entrenched in these markets are likely to remain permanent fixtures in the global top 10. Japan had become the largest global PV inverter market by revenue due to having the highest pv inverter prices globally and a booming market. The Japanese PV market has also been dominated by domestic suppliers which have little footprint outside Japan but have still increased their global market share as a result. Considering also that the rest of the world outside their home markets remains almost untapped for most of them, and the volume, scale and cash flow that are currently generated by their domestic markets, it looks likely that they will be able to further improve their position in the global ranks.

Conversely, the market in the West remains overcrowded, with suppliers fiercely battling to maintain their share of a market that constantly shifts from country to country, as old markets decline and new markets come and go. New opportunities in emerging markets further afield are also nearly always accompanied by a long queue of suppliers fighting to establish themselves in the next big opportunity. South Africa’s much hyped utility-scale tenders held over the last few years drew enough suppliers to supply solar inverters to meet demand there ten times over.

Sungrow adds 20MW inverters in California Solar Project | pv inverter Certification | Scoop.it

December 9, 2014, Sungrow, the second largest PV inverter manufacturer in the world. Announced it completed the commissioning of its inverters for the TA Acacia solar project in Los Angeles County on the outskirts of Lancaster, California.


Construction of the 28.4-MWdc project took place from July to November 2014, generating more than 400 jobs during peak construction. Sungrow supplied 25 SG800MX inverters, which were integrated into 1.6-MW Integrated Power Stations to convert and connect the 94,340 Canadian Solar PV modules to the power grid. The SG800MX was released in the US in Q4 2013, has received lots of positive feedback, and has been deployed in many ground mount utility projects in US due to its superior performance and grid friendly functionality. Canadian Solar developed the project, and White Construction provided Engineering, Procurement, and Construction services (EPC). The 20 year Power Purchase Agreement with PG&E was approved by the California Public Utilities Commission, and the system was recently sold to Dominion Virginia Power. The total system output will be enough to power more than 6,100 homes and offset a total of 31,500 tons of carbon dioxide.

“The 28.4-MWdc TA Acacia project is a milestone for Sungrow in the U.S. and we are pleased to be part of it,” said Renxian Cao, chairman of Sungrow Power Supply. “As Sungrow keeps expanding our service infrastructure and installation base in US, we are committed to supporting Canadian Solar and other customers from coast to coast in the United States.”

“The TA Acacia Facility demonstrates that large scale solar PV can be a significant, viable, and sustainable component of California’s energy mix,” said Dr. Shawn Qu, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Canadian Solar Inc. “As the leading manufacturer in North America, we take great pride that our modules will now be generating over 20 years of clean, emission-free renewable energy in southern California.” Click here to edit the content

New Inverter Technological Costs Are Reduced

New Inverter Technological Costs Are Reduced | pv inverter Certification | Scoop.it

Meeting the needs for electricity in remote parts of the world is an endeavor that is a labor of love for those intimately involved with saving animals that have no voice.   Part of that labor of love involves corporations and individuals who see to it that shipments of solar electricity systems, which include a variety of different types of power inverters, are shipped to field agents.   Ten different conservation projects in 7 different countries are making great strides thanks to electrical systems that are able to operate with the aid of off-grid, solar-powered inverters.

Inverter R&D has focused on two areas. The first is incremental changes in the existing string/central inverter,the second recent inverter development is a move toward decentralized architectures.

The new solar micro inverter is instead of having one large inverter that handles all of the conversion from DC current to AC current for the home, these new solar panels have a solar micro inverter installed in each of them that does this conversion in the panel.  This solar micro inverter takes the DC current generated by the solar panel, and converts it directly to AC current before leaving the panel.  This way you have a complete solution within the solar panel that can produce the exact power your home needs to operate.  Because higher voltage AC electricity has a lot less loss over the long wire run into your house, you get a more efficient conversion and can use a larger portion of the power you are generating with your solar panels.  This also makes expanding your solar power system each year easier as well since you can simply buy more panels and add them to your homes wiring.  There is never a need to worry about having to upgrade your inverter.  Even though these new solar panels are a little more expensive than the older ones, eliminating the cost of the larger inverter makes the total system cost about the same.


Solar inverter prices have not decreased significantly in the past few years, and with module prices falling, inverters represent a greater portion of the total cost of a solar installation. As mentioned, inverter technology can also have a significant impact on BOS and labor costs. For example, higher-capacity central inverters reduce the number of inverters that need to be installed in very large systems, thereby reducing labor costs. This is offset to some extent by the wider distribution of DC wiring and the need for bulky and expensive DC combiners and DC circuit overcurrent protection.

New inverter technologies also have the potential to reduce solar array operating costs. Microinverter technologies make the array less prone to performance degradation from dust and debris, meaning less frequent washing. Normal soiling of modules can easily reduce power output by 5 or 6%. Also, inverters based on a distributed architecture allow for delayed maintenance. In this type of highly redundant system, if one module or inverter fails, the outage is limited to that module. The rest of the array will continue to operate normally. System owners and operators can have a plan of scheduled maintenance rather than emergency maintenance. Furthermore, maintenance costs are lower because microinverters can be swapped out quickly and easily, and by less-skilled staff—compared to large central inverters, which require expert diagnosis, repair, removal, and replacement. Finally, systems that include inverter communication and per module monitoring dramatically reduce the time required to troubleshoot the PV array.

As Solar Panel Prices Fall, Residential Solar Industry Might Soar - Omnik New Energy

As Solar Panel Prices Fall, Residential Solar Industry Might Soar - Omnik New Energy | pv inverter Certification | Scoop.it

Solar panel prices have been falling for years, and this might drive residential solar industry to boom. One solar energy article entitled Solar Energy Revolution: A Massive Opportunity from Forbes, says: “The cost of solar panels is dropping exponentially.” The other article on CNN is entitled A brighter future: five ideas that will change solar energy. The first one proves solar cells have slumped, and the second says a bright future is expected for the solar industry.

In 1977, silicon photovoltaic cell cost was $76; and today the cost has dropped to $0.36. This is indeed a massive drop. In previous years, solar cells were only used for generating electricity in large power plants, while today they have been introduced homes as technology improves and solar cell prices drop.

The US Solar Market Insight reports, when solar panels are installed on each rooftop, the installed cost will be around $3.00/W. This is not a high cost, while still some of those who wish to install such a system might want to choose cheaper methods. Indeed, some solar loan plans have been forged and run. In many parts of the U.S. one who wishes to install such a system can pay little money for this because those leasing firms will help. In this way a user only needs to pay the loan as he pays the bill for buying a house. This service is also available in the UK and China.

By going solar at home, a user can can save money and become power independent. The fact is that many governments including the UK, the US, Australian and Chinese governments all have incentives or subsidies for those who go solar. Thus, people who use solar panels to generate electricity will receive subsidies, and a panel user can also send back the unused amount of electricity to the utility grid for earning money. At the same time the family doesn’t have to use the electricity transmitted from the grid.

As the world environmental problems become more and more serious, more astounding benefits of solar power have been detected by humans, and the prices of solar panels become cheaper and cheaper, a bright future for the residential solar industry is stewing and will come true. - See more at: http://www.omnik-solar.com/news/As-Solar-Panel-Prices-Fall-Residential-Solar-Industry-Might-Soar

PV industry turning to Asian market - Omnik New Energy

PV industry turning to Asian market - Omnik New Energy | pv inverter Certification | Scoop.it

As biofuel markets fall, renewable energy markets rise, especially the PV industry. Solar energy is clean and environment friendly, and so it has been used by the world to get rid of pollution. Generating electricity has become popular around the world, while it is today skewing itself to the Asian market although the Western market still remains prosperous.

In 2011 there were no countries in Asia that could be listed among the top ten PV inverter suppliers in the world, while this figure has dramatically changed to a different one: five now come from this region. Is this a sign that the global PV industry is turning its head to the oriental world? There are some detailed signs that might prove so.

Chinese market
The photovoltaic inverter suppliers have changed a great deal in the past 12 months mainly because of Japanese and Chinese inverter suppliers and others, the research of IHS said. In the Chinese solar inverter market one of the most prominent contributors is Huawei, a Chinese telecommunications company. This is a great move for the company itself, and the total solar inverter shipments in the country soared to 4.8 GW in the third quarter. Other Chinese companies like Sungrow and TBEA have also contributed to this growth. Also in Taiwan, EnergyTrend, a solar firm, has set its PV demand to 44 GW for this year.

Japanese market
The research of IHS has shown that Japanese and Chinese inverter suppliers have contributed a great deal to the dramatic change of global PV inverter suppliers’ rankings. Indeed Japan is also a large market which is still increasing fast. Some analysts even think Japan will overtake China in this industry because the country is expected to install the PV capacity beyond 10 GW this year. This is not a laughing matter, for in the third quarter the country had already installed 2.4 GW. In the first nine months it already installed 7 GW. This figure is promising and has made a great contribution to the Asian PV market.

Indian market
India is a poor nation in Asia, and it seems solar energy is far away from it. However, the truth is the country’s solar power is motivated by this poverty. Many villages in India are located in remote areas where people are poor and the utility grid cannot reach. Thus, solar electricity has turned into its major power supplier. In addition, the Guardian reported that India’s prime minister is making efforts to develop solar electricity, and a recent report also shows that in the following 10 years the country could install 110,000 MW to 145,000 MW of solar power. At present the largest solar power plant Gujarat Solar Park has also been built in India, which signals a great advancement in this industry for the country and Asia.

Apart from the three countries, other South Eastern counties are also developing PV power industry in an energetic mood. Another true fact is that Asia, not like the Western nations, is full of relatively cheap labor, which can help reduce so many costs in producing related components in this field. This is one reason this trend is skewing to the East. Also, Asia is a large region and its needs of electricity are strong, and so the trend seems to be a firm yes in the long run. Although there are still lots of elements affecting the Asian market, the trend for developing this industry in the region will not change.
