Solar PV inverters turning to be a cornerstone for achieving green energy generation goals
Solar PV inverters are becoming a major focus in the energy sector worldwide in order to maximize energy production, ensure secure system operation, and effectively track power output.

Solar energy, an inexhaustible and renewable source, is transitioning the phase of power generation to a carbon-free terrain. Businesses are looking forward to using photovoltaic (PV) cells and concentrating solar power (CSP) systems for clean energy generation.

Solar power continues to be the third-largest renewable electricity technology, with a 179 TWh increase in power generation in 2021, accounting for 3.6% of the world's electricity production. Solar PV inverters are a vital part of the solar energy ecosystem for maximizing energy production.

Low maintenance, no rotating parts, less noise, and high modularity make solar PV inverters the most suitable option for power storage.

Many governments are introducing policies and incentives for renewable energy generation to achieve sustainability goals. In June 2022, China published its 14th Five-Year Plan, which includes an ambitious target of 33% of electricity generation from renewables by 2025, including an 18% target for wind and solar technologies.

The IEA Photovoltaic Power Systems Technology Collaboration Programme advocates for solar PV energy as a cornerstone of the transition to sustainable energy systems. It conducts various collaborative projects relevant to solar PV technologies and systems to reduce costs, analyze barriers and raise awareness of PV electricity’s potential.

The adoption of solar PV inverters is likely to be influenced by government initiatives for the solar-powered electrification of underdeveloped and developing areas.
