Is SolarEdge Gaining an Edge in the Solar Market with Its Tech Innovations?


SolarEdge Technologies prepares to unveil an expanded product portfolio at Intersolar Europe. The company says its smart energy management solution reduces electricity costs by maximizing self-consumption.

Power optimization provider and global inverter company SolarEdge Technologies has announced that it’s unveiling an expanded product portfolio. At Intersolar Europe in Munich, SolarEdge will showcase its smart energy management solution, which the company says reduces electricity costs by maximizing self-consumption.

As part of its smart energy management, SolarEdge is launching a feed-in limitation feature that’s integrated into the SolarEdge inverter firmware. This feature dynamically adjusts PV power production, ensuring that power output to the grid does not exceed the pre-set limit.

The significance of the feature is that it enables larger installations and increases the potential of PV self-consumption.

In addition, the company will present StorEdge, a storage solution that uses an optimized battery pack based on SolarEdge’s widely deployed power optimization technology. StorEdge has an increased lifespan and according to SolarEdge is a safe, highly efficient, and scalable solution. Available later this year, StorEdge will be able to be added to existing SolarEdge inverters.

Any storage developments are good news these days; we look forward to seeing what happens with this technology.

But that’s not all! During Intersolar Europe, SolarEdge will also be showcasing its new P700 power optimizer for 72-cell modules and its new wi-fi solution. The newly launched wi-fi solution offers wireless communication between the SolarEdge inverter and a wi-fi router for simple internet connectivity.

“Around the world, SolarEdge’s module-level power optimization has become a standard technology in residential and commercial systems because of its proven financial benefits,” stated Guy Sella, CEO and Chairman of SolarEdge. “The benefits provided by power optimization will provide SolarEdge a strong foothold in the self-consumption market. We see this introduction further increasing SolarEdge’s PV market penetration.”

SolarEdge seems poised to gain an edge in the industry with its comprehensive technical innovations.
