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.”

  • Photovoltaics International 24th Edition

    Signs earlier in the year of the global industry entering a growth phase have now been confirmed beyond any doubt. Almost all the big-name suppliers have now announced some form of manufacturing capacity expansion, a trend that analysts agree will only gather pace as long as the levels of demand predicted over the next few years turn out to be correct.

  • Manufacturing The Solar Future: The 2014 Production Annual

    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.
