Energy Efficiency Technology to Take Solar Market by Storm

With their capability to increase the efficiency of solar systems, module level power management (MLPM) solutions are set for fast growth, with almost 40 percent of residential photovoltaic (PV) installations expected to use the technology in 2014, new IHS iSuppli research indicates.
Global shipments of MLPM systems, a category consisting of microinverters and optimizers, are set to rise to 6.2 gigawatts (GW) in 2014, up by nearly a factor of 40 from 160 megawatts (MW), as presented in the attached figure. By the end of 2014, 38 percent of residential PV installations worldwide will employ MLPM solutions, up from 2 percent in 2010.
Microinverters convert direct current (DC) power from a single solar module to alternating current (AC) power, while optimizers use DC-to-DC converter technology to take full advantage of the power harvest from PV systems.
