Major PV inverter manufacturer SolarEdge Technologies is taking its patent infringement case against Huawei Technologies to the Regional Courts of Jinan and Shenzhen in China, after fillings in Germany in June and July 2018. 

SolarEdge said that the claimed patent infringements related to its DC optimized inverter technology and had filed three lawsuits in the Chinese courts. 

“SolarEdge spends considerable time and resources on developing innovative technology and this investment needs to be protected,” said Zvi Lando, Acting CEO and VP Global Sales of SolarEdge. “Our industry is driven by innovation which over the past decade has made PV energy more affordable and more efficient. The significant financial investment and years of dedication and hard work from our R&D engineers needs to be protected from exploitation. SolarEdge’s patents are the result of our relentless pursuit of innovation and commitment towards PV proliferation. We will continue to take legal action against Huawei and others to protect our assets.”

The first three lawsuits in Germany include Huawei Technologies Co, Huawei Technologies Düsseldorf GmbH and German distributor, WATTKRAFT Solar.
