SolarEdge Technologies, a provider of power optimization systems and monitoring solutions, announced that it has received the 2012 Intersolar Award for Innovation in the photovoltaic category. The distinguished award was granted to the SolarEdge next-generation power optimizer that features IndOP technology, allowing for broader market adoption of power optimizers, the company says.
The award honors solar companies for innovative ideas and technological breakthroughs. The power optimizer, with independent optimization technology (IndOP ) is designed using a new set of semiconductor chips, developed by SolarEdge, which the company says allow for a smaller product with increased reliability, durability and efficiency. Additional benefits include increased safety and module-level PV monitoring.
The Intersolar AWARD is given out annually by an independent panel of judges in the categories of photovoltaic, solar thermal technologies and PV Production Technologies. More than 3,000 solar companies submitted products to be considered for award in the industry’s flagship honor that draws worldwide public attention.
