Inventergy Global subsidiary Inventergy Innovations, an intellectual property licensing company, has partnered with Italian racking manufacturer A+ Sun Systems to license A+ Sun’s solar mounting technology across the North American solar industry. Licensees of A+ Sun Systems’ technology will be able to manufacture and commercialize the company’s patented tensioned steel cable technology.
“Licensing our patented technology to established manufacturers of solar racking systems in the USA allows us to participate in the rapid growth of the U.S. solar industry by retaining a share of the technology’s value potential,” said Alberto Di Gaetano, CEO of A+ Sun Systems. “Licensees will benefit from a 50% reduction in material costs and 65% less weight, while enabling the installation of panels in locations that would otherwise have been impossible or cost prohibitive.”
To date, A+ Sun Systems has deployed its competitive solutions across various market segments in four continents. A+ Sun Systems’ world record span of 122 ft (37 m) between posts allows for cost effective applications such as standard flat ground, agri-voltaics and over canal tops.
Licensed U.S. partners will also benefit from faster installation due to the reduced material and components.
“We are excited about providing this technology to the North American market and we are already engaged with potential licensees,” said Joe Beyers, CEO of Inventergy.
