According to information services and data analysis of PV suppliers IHS latest research report predicts that, given the continued growth in demand from overseas markets, the next four years, micro-inverter sector revenue is expected to grow more than four times.
Reported that, compared to traditional inverters, micro inverters either efficiency or function are improved. With many advantages, micro-inverter favored by the new market. Based on this, micro-inverter is being more and more accepted by non-US customers.
According to the report, "2013 PV micro-inverters and power optimizers Global Market Analysis Report" forecasts that by 2017, global PV micro-inverter shipments will increase to 2.1GW, compared to 2013 growth of 500MW 306%.
IHS said that solar PV micro-inverter toconvert DC from a single solar module to alternating current devices. Although compared to the conventional inverter more expensive, but the micro-inverter output is much higher than the conventional energy production or central inverters inverter apparatus.
At present, although demand for micro-inverters largely from the
housing market, but the market
is increasingly turning the focus of commercial solar systems department and
other areas. U.S.
IHS PV market sectors Cormac Gilligan said: "At present, micro-inverters in the
market is very popular,
especially in the residential market, penetration has exceeded 40%, however, in
order to improve or maintain market share, micro-inverter suppliers are
working. expand the geographic territory, of course, the advantages of
micro-inverter -. higher energy yield, safety and component-level detection
function - for residential systems sector (especially small-scale projects) is
still quite attractive. " U.S.
