eIQ and KACO collaborate on pre-configured solar PV arrays

eIQ Energy and KACO new energy announced their collaboration to bring eIQ’s vBoost DC optimizers and KACO’s blueplanet XP100-U inverters into one convenient, pre-tested and pre-configured package for solar array designers. The companies site this combination as being a more efficient way for design and parts to be ordered for solar arrays between 100kW and 300kW. Their agreement will span the whole North American market.

“We’re glad to be collaborating with KACO; they make some of the most advanced inverters on the market, and we share a common goal of enabling our customers to maximize the return on their solar investment,” commented Oliver Janssen, CEO of eIQ Energy. “Simplification of the design process is one of the hallmarks of our Parallel Solar product family, and this product combination is another step in that direction. It’s also closely tied to our strategy of using our DC-to-DC conversion capabilities to maximize the effectiveness of existing inverter technologies.”

    Now that the PV industry has unquestionably entered a new growth phase, all eyes are on which technologies will win through into the mainstream of PV manufacturing. PERC, n-type, p-type bifacial, heterojunction – all have become familiar terms in the ever-growing constellation of solar cell technologies. The question is which will offer manufacturers what they are looking for in improving efficiencies and cutting costs.

    Although the past few years have proved extremely testing for PV equipment manufacturers, falling module prices have driven solar end-market demand to previously unseen levels. That demand is now starting to be felt by manufacturers, to the extent that leading companies are starting to talk about serious capacity expansions later this year and into 2015. This means that the next 12 months will be a critical period if companies throughout the supply chain are to take full advantage of the PV industry’s next growth phase.
