Solar Power International, taking place September 14-17, 2015 in Anaheim, California

Burnaby, Canada, September 10, 2015 — Schneider Electric Solar Business, a global leader in solutions for the solar power conversion chain, will be presenting their full storage offer and enhanced monitoring and control solutions at Solar Power International, taking place September 14-17, 2015 in Anaheim, California.


Solar Power International is North America's premier educational conference and product exhibition bringing together more than 15,000 solar energy industry professionals from over 75 countries.

"We are excited to showcase our power plant solutions for PV generation and energy storage," said Arnaud Cantin, VP of the Power Plants Line of Business. "Banking on synergies with our highly reliable and competitive PV system offering, and leveraging our broad expertise with design, implementation, and operation of complex control systems, we have developed high performance energy storage systems to deliver to renewable project developers, utilities and large end-users, for varied applications. With Schneider Electric, customers can count on reliable systems, for both PV and energy storage, backed up by our global services infrastructure."

Schneider Electric will be showing the Conext Core XC-NA inverter at their booth, along with a new DC re- combiner. Attendees will also get a chance to learn more about Schneider Electric's new monitoring and control solutions for PV and energy storage power plants. Visitors of the booth will get a first look at the new Conext Advisor. Conext Advisor is a web-based application focused on providing power plant operators and investors with high level and detailed performance analysis of a PV plant portfolio. Utilizing existing data extracted by Conext Control and leveraging the power of cloud-based analytics, users can compare the performance of their assets, identify underperforming areas within a PV plant down to the string level, and trigger adequate maintenance and refurbishment actions to maintain or enhance the energy generation over the lifetime of the asset.

For commercial and residential applications, Schneider Electric is proud to introduce Conext Insight, a remote monitoring and asset management platform for decentralized grid-tie and battery-based systems. Installers can leverage Conext Insight to remain connected with their customers and offer value-added services. It also helps to minimize truck rolls and service calls by facilitating remote diagnostics of issues. Conext Insight enables installers to gain actionable insight to make confident decisions and help their customers maximize ROI of their PV assets.
