A new high-voltage inverter and power optimizer solution launching in japan's PV market by Omron and SolarEdge

31.01.2018

Kyoto – SolarEdge Technologies, Inc. and OMRON Corporation are launching a new DC optimized inverter solution for Japan’s high-voltage PV market. OMRON will offer SolarEdge's three-phase DC optimized inverter solution, consisting of inverters, power optimizers, and module-level monitoring, for the high-voltage Japanese PV market.

As a global inverter market leader, SolarEdge offers a DC optimized solution that manages and monitors energy at the module level in order to maximize power generation and increase string-design flexibility. These advantages open up a wide-range of new PV installation possibilities, including sites suffering from shade or uneven slopes. This means that installers no longer need to consider factors such as site location, orientation, and solar irradiance when designing PV sites.

As part of the launch, SolarEdge will supply high-voltage, three-phase inverters and power optimizers to OMRON for local distribution and sales. OMRON's after-sales service network of 140 locations nationwide is available for the SolarEdge solution following the launch. Availability is planned for March 2018.

With Japan’s energy market having experienced various transformations in recent years, its PV market has been steadily expanding following the introduction of its renewable energy feed in tariff (FIT) program that began in the summer of 2012. As such, further innovation in PV solutions is required in order to ensure efficient energy usage and to maintain a balance in the country’s energy supply and demand.
