SolarEdge Introducing Module-Level Power Electronics to Chinese Market at SNEC
Shanghai, China and Hod Hasharon, Israel, May 19, 2014 – SolarEdge Technologies, a leading global provider of power optimizers, PV inverters, and monitoring systems, announces its expansion into the Chinese solar market. Having identified China as a strategic and growing market, SolarEdge is intensifying its activity in the country with the appointment of Dr. QT Jiang to General Manager of SolarEdge China, the expansion of its offices in Shanghai, and the introduction of dedicated partner support for PV installers.
Dr. QT Jiang, having held senior positions at Semiconductor and PV companies, brings a wealth of expertise and in-depth knowledge of the Chinese PV market to his role at SolarEdge. He earned a Bachelor's Degree in Physics from Beijing University and a Ph.D. from Rutgers University. Additionally, he has multiple published professional articles and holds numerous U.S. and Chinese Patents.
Experiencing unprecedented success around the world, the module-level power electronics (MLPE) market reached more than 2 GW of cumulative installed capacity in 2013. The global adoption of MLPE is due to increased energy harvest, constraint-free design, cost-efficient maintenance, and improved safety. As part of this success, the PV market has also experienced a transition from central inverters to string inverters in large PV installations. As the leading power optimizer provider and among the top global inverter companies, SolarEdge is in a strategic position to lead the adoption of module-level electronics in the Chinese market.
"I am excited to join SolarEdge, an innovative company with a successful track record, which is poised to be a leading player in the Chinese PV market," stated Dr. QT Jiang, the newly-appointed General Manager of SolarEdge China. "Module-level power electronics offer the Chinese solar market great promise for advancing its PV installations. As part of the introduction of module-level electronics to China, SolarEdge is committed to provide a dedicated business partnership that offers end-to-end project support."
SolarEdge invites SNEC visitors to stop by the SolarEdge booth, located at E6 both number 515, to meet its local and global management teams, learn about module-level power electronics, and SolarEdge products.
