Microinverter firm Enecsys attracts US$41 million in new funding round

In what is claimed to be the largest private equity investment in the European cleantech sector so far this year, microinverter firm Enecsys has attracted US$41 million in a new Series B funding round to support further growth, reports Solar Power Portal.

“The resources from this financing will be used to execute our growth strategy by accelerating our product development and cost reduction plan and expanding our global presence in sales, marketing, customer service and manufacturing to serve every major market,” commented Henrik Raunkjaer, Enecsys' CEO.

Climate Change Capital Private Equity led the latest round with an investment of £11 million (US$18 million). The remaining funding of £14 million (US$23 million), was secured from the existing Enecsys investors, Wellington Partners, NES Partners (formerly known as Bankinvest New Energy Solutions) and Good Energies, who together previously invested £8.5 million (US$14.3 million) in Enecsys in a Series A financing in 2009.

    Looking back, 2014 was a year of convalescence for a PV industry still battered and bruised from a period of ferocious competition. End-market demand continued apace, with analysts towards the end of 2014 predicting the year would see between around 45 and 50GW of deployment. That has begun to feed through to the supplier end of the market, with all the main manufacturers announcing capacity expansions in 2015 and further ahead.

    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.
