Energy Fundamentals signs co-operation agreement with University of Vienna and the Technical University of Munich

Research analysing the effect of policy on hourly electricity prices

Zurich, 11th June 2012 - Energy Fundamentals has signed a co-operation agreement with the University of Vienna (UV) and Technical University of Munich (TUM) as part of its continued strategy to forge strong links with university research departments in the area of power market analysis and modelling. This agreement will see Energy Fundamentals, which provides fundamental European power data and modelling through its EPSI platform, support research in the field of energy economics.


The research is analysing the effect of various policies on hourly electricity prices. As part of this, a fundamental electricity model for Germany and Austria will be developed. The research project is being supervised by Prof. Dr. David Wozabal, and Energy Fundamentals will be providing its modelling knowledge and market data.

Dr. Twan Vollebregt, CEO of Energy Fundamentals, said, "We greatly value co-operations with research departments in leading European universities such as UV and TUM, and indeed other institutions that we work with such as ETH Zurich. A two-way exchange of data, knowledge and expertise is of great advantage to both the company and the university, and we are pleased to be able to support this particular project."

SolarEdge Technologies - Solar Inverters, Power Optimizers and PV Monitoring

The SolarEdge PV inverter combines sophisticated digital control technology with efficient power conversion architecture to achieve superior solar power harvesting and best-in-class reliability. The fixed-voltage technology ensures the solar inverter is always working at its optimal input voltage over a wider range of string lengths and regardless of environmental conditions. A proprietary data monitoring receiver has been integrated into the inverter and aggregates the power optimizer performance data from each PV module. This data can be transmitted to the web and accessed via the SolarEdge Monitoring Portal for performance analysis, fault detection and troubleshooting of PV systems.
