Tigo Energy has announced that its PV optimisation solutions for the solar industry reached another milestone. Tigo Energy solutions are now successfully operating with over two thousand (2000) different types of inverters from over eighty (80) different suppliers.

These inverters range from small residential to large utility, covering a widespread geography including: Antarctica, Australia, Japan, China, South America, North America, Europe, Middle East and more. This milestone provides further validation that Tigo Energy is the clear leader in the smart module space, with the only solution that enables module manufacturers the flexibility to handle any number of different inverter architectures.

"Fundamentally we believe that our smart module technology needs to work within the strong ecosystem the solar industry has generated over the past decade," Said Ben Hill GM of Trina Europe.

"Trinasmart optimised by Tigo Energy gives us the flexibility to deploy the solution to any geography and gives our customers the most choice possible for their balance of systems decisions. We think this is the most bankable and strategic direction long-term."

Tigo Energy's technology is the only available solution that has received written notification of compliance with all of the major inverter manufacturers. These declarations of compliance highlight the compatibility of Tigo Energy's technology with their inverter topologies and that their standard warranties are valid when used with Tigo's smart module or optimizer solutions.

"Tigo set out to build a company that would provide the most reliable, best featured, and cost effective optimization solution complementing any inverter and or solar PV module," said Zvi Alon CEO of Tigo Energy.

"The recent milestone results from working collaboratively with inverter manufacturers and PV module suppliers while proving scalability and bankability in multiple vertical solutions. Tigo continues to provide an open architecture with strong partnerships giving solar PV module manufacturers the most scalable solution and enabling end-customers the most bankable and diverse range of choices."

Inverter manufacturers have also worked with Tigo Energy to promote and enable easier adoption of this architecture. Earlier this year Tigo Energy and KACO new energy announced the introduction of the KACO blueplanet M-series.

The new line of inverters integrates Tigo Energy's Management Unit and communications infrastructure directly inside the KACO inverter. This collaboration reduces the number of components a system installer needs to manage, making it easier and faster to install smart modules optimized by Tigo Energy.

"Tigo Energy is a strategic partner for us," said Scott Sullivan Director of Sales and Marketing for KACO new energy.

"Both Tigo and KACO believe that central inversion is the only long-term, cost-effective, and reliable solution for the industry. Tigo Energy's Smart Module technology adds functionality to the architecture and enhances our own product offering.

"Our partnership allows us each to focus on what we do best, KACO making the best-in-class inverter technologies and Tigo on world-leading smart module technology. Together we offer the best combination of bankability, performance, and customer satisfaction in the industry for module-level power electronics."

Trinasmart and the KACO blueplanet M-series are available and shipping today.

Managing renewables intelligently
Kassel, Germany (SPX) Mar 27, 2014
Although more and more of our electrical energy is coming from sources where supply is variable - whether from wind turbines, solar parks or biomass facilities - grid structures, industry and private households alike are not yet prepared to deal with the inevitable fluctuations. Smart energy management systems are the way to put robust supply networks in place and to ensure that renewables are h ... read more
