Inverters have become all-rounders, used not just for converting direct current into alternating current but for analyzing and controlling PV installations as well as solar batteries, power-to-heat and smart home solutions. Industry professionals can learn more about the trends shaping this future-oriented market at Intersolar Europe.In addition to efficiency currently approaching the 99 per cent mark, inverters are gaining entirely new innovative potential. Digitalization is opening up new fields of use and business models for manufacturers. For example, inverters with an integrated charging function can refuel electric vehicles up to two and a half times faster than traditional charge controllers, while at the same time cutting installation costs. The growing digital capabilities of inverters are also being applied in the heating sector, where they are used to control heating elements for hot water production in boilers and buffer tanks, which can be run on excess solar power. Modern PV and battery inverters even contribute to the stability of the grid. Thanks to their energy management qualities, they can supply power when it is needed.
15 May 2019The combination of solar energy and electric vehicles enables new, pioneering use concepts for private households and companies alike. Even small photovoltaic (PV) systems with only three kilowatts peak provide enough power to drive an electric vehicle thousands of kilometers a year – without harming the environment. (more…)
10 May 2019The number of electric vehicles around the world rose to 5.6 million last year. The global market grew by 75 percent compared with 2017, and it will continue to accelerate. This is also reflected in the current market overview from the Power2Drive Europe exhibition. (more…)
