Ampt to Unveil New Industry Alliance and Present on PV Balance of System Innovations at Solar Power International 2012
FORT COLLINS, Colo., Sept. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Ampt, an innovative designer of active electronics for photovoltaic (PV) solar modules, today announced that it will unveil details on a new, significant industry alliance at Solar Power International (SPI) 2012, taking place at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla. from September 10 – 13, 2012. The Alliance is aimed at advancing the adoption of lower cost, higher performance PV systems, and features several high-profile inaugural members from the solar technology community.
Also at the conference, Ampt CEO Levent Gun will participate in a panel presentation discussing PV balance of system (BOS) innovations. The presentation will be on Thursday, September 13 from 2:30 – 4:00 p.m. at the Orange County Convention Center, West Concourse 304E/304F.
Ampt will join partner KACO new energy in a panel presentation at the KACO booth #1557 on September 11 – 13. This presentation will discuss the combined value of Ampt DC Optimizers when deployed with KACO inverters in Ampt Mode to lower system cost while increasing performance. The combined solution will be featured in KACO’s booth. In addition, various module partners will display modules that can be Powered by Ampt(TM) to enable their customers to take advantage of system-level savings enabled by Ampt DC Optimizers.
“SPI is a great opportunity to showcase Ampt’s leadership in the solar industry with our unique power conversion technology,” said Levent Gun, Ampt CEO. “We’re excited to participate in the show again, share our expertise in balance of systems and illustrate how our converters obtain more energy out of PV systems, and lower total system costs.”
Ampt is quickly advancing in the market and has established strategic partnerships with manufacturers of inverters, PV modules, BOS components and software monitoring solutions to expand global adoption of the company’s groundbreaking DC/DC module-level optimizers.
Ampt optimizers lower the total $/watt cost of PV systems while maximizing power output to significantly lower the levelized cost of energy (LCOE) compared to conventional PV systems. Ampt’s patented Ampt Mode(TM) and String Stretch(TM) technologies lower the cost of BOS–such as inverters, wiring, combiner boxes and related materials, and labor–by as much as 50 percent or more. In addition, Ampt’s new StringView(TM) offering enables a 10 times reduction in string monitoring costs, with much higher accuracy, and an open interface to third-party monitoring solutions.
