Official regulatory bodies in Italy, France, Belgium, Luxembourg, and the Netherlands have certified Enphase's PV microinverter system. The microinverters meet the requirements in the ENEL guidelines for Italy and conform to VDE for European safety standards.
The company said that its European-certified products will begin shipping this year to select countries.
The system consists of three key components: the microinverter itself, the Envoy communications gateway, and the company's Englighten web-based software. Together, they function as a single unified system that enhances energy production and increases system uptime, according to Enphase, which also cites simplified design and installation, reduced fire safety risk, and the ability to monitor panel-level performance as benefits.
Earlier this year, Enphase opned European offices in Lyon, France and Milan, Italy.
