PV manufacturer Renesola has received certification across three continents for its string inverter ‘Replus’ opening up a wave of market expansion.
In total, eight new countries have issued certificates including the US, Canada and Thailand.
Xianshou Li, Renesola's CEO said the new certifications will allow the company to expand its downstream inverter business in North America, Europe and Asia, as it aims to “provide energy-efficiency solutions to households and large-scale PV systems in markets across the world”.
Florian Dieckmann, marketing manager at Renesola Europe said: “we are doing our homework to enter markets with all the required documents” adding Renesola’s R&D teams are looking to produce inverter technology that can compete with EU and US technology.
