SolarEdge Technologies, a provider of solar power optimization and monitoring systems, has received the 2012 Intersolar Award for Innovation in the Photovoltaic category. The Intersolar Award honors solar companies for innovative ideas and technological breakthroughs.
SolarEdge received the award for its power optimizer, which features independent optimization technology to allow broader market adoption. Designed with a new set of semiconductor chips developed by SolarEdge, the company says it allows for a much 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 and PV production technologies.
